Linen: casual elegance

Linen is to summer what wool is to winter, one of the most natural and breathable materials that is gaining popularity season after season. Appreciated for its lightness and ability to absorb moisture or perspiration, linen is ideal for those hot summer days. Its crumpled look gives a natural charm and casual elegance to summer outfits. You can imagine wearing a flowing linen dress or a light linen shirt with shorts or a skirt, a perfect choice for sunny days. Linen is also available in a wide range of colors and patterns, offering endless possibilities for creating unique looks.

Cotton gauze: airy softness

Cotton gauze is a light and airy material that offers optimal comfort during the summer months. This wispy, sheer fabric is often used in summer clothing such as dresses, blouses and skirts. It allows the skin to breathe while adding a touch of femininity to your outfit. Cotton gauze comes in a multitude of colors and patterns, allowing you to create romantic or bohemian ensembles, depending on your personal style. For a casual chic look, pair a cotton gauze blouse with a pair of fitted jeans or a denim skirt.

Towelling is a material often associated with towels and bathrobes, but it can also be used for our summer clothing. This soft, fluffy fabric is ideal for beach outings or days spent by the pool. Towelling dresses, shorts and swimsuits offer ultimate comfort while rapidly absorbing moisture. What's more, terry comes in a variety of vibrant hues that instantly evoke the summer spirit. Don't hesitate to dare to wear terry for a casual look that will keep you cool all day long.

Viscose: the ideal choice for a dress

For a light, comfortable summer dress, viscose is an excellent choice. This soft, flowing fabric offers a texture similar to silk, but with easy care and often more affordable cost. Viscose is lightweight and breathable, making it a popular material for summer dresses. It is also available in a wide range of colors and prints, making it easy to find a style that suits your summer preferences.

Silk: lightness and glamour

For those who prefer more luxurious fabrics, silk offers an elegant yet comfortable option with its soft, smooth texture that glides over the skin. Silk, often found in the form of scarves, is a noble and lightweight material that adds a touch of elegance to any summer outfit. This natural fiber is known for its softness and fluidity, making it an ideal choice for warm days. Silk also has heat-regulating properties, which means it can keep you cool in hot weather and warm in cooler weather. Silk dresses are a classic and timeless choice for summer special occasions, while silk blouses paired with lightweight pants add a touch of sophistication to your everyday attire. Don't hesitate to incorporate silk into your summer wardrobe for a luxurious, lightweight feel that will make you stand out in style.

When it comes to finding the perfect pants for summer, linen stands out thanks to its lightness and natural ability to absorb moisture. Linen allows air to circulate easily through the fabric, helping to maintain a cool feel even in hot weather. What's more, its naturally crinkled texture gives a casual, summery look, perfect for beach days or informal occasions. Linen pants are this summer's must-have, so don't wait any longer to adopt this season's trendiest piece!

Linen or cotton: which to choose?

For summer, the choice between cotton and linen depends mainly on your personal preferences and specific needs.

  • Cotton is appreciated for its versatility and softness, offering pleasant comfort while being easy to care for. It absorbs moisture and allows the skin to breathe, making it a solid choice for hot climates where perspiration can be a problem.
  • Linen, on the other hand, stands out for its exceptional lightness and natural ability to regulate body temperature. It's ideal for particularly hot days, allowing air to circulate freely and preventing a feeling of suffocation. Linen also has a naturally wrinkled appearance that lends it a casual summer charm.

Finally, whether you prefer the classic comfort of cotton or the airy freshness of linen, both options offer distinct qualities that are perfectly suited to the needs of sunny summer days.
