Summer is in full swing, which means you need to stay cool and comfortable while out and about. Whether you're on the beach or just hanging out in your own backyard, these fabrics will keep you cool without making you feel too hot.


Linen is a natural fiber that's durable and breathable. It's lightweight, wrinkle resistant and has a great drape. Linen is versatile; you can use it in many different ways—for example, it looks good on its own or as an underlay for other fabrics like cotton or synthetics.

As much as we love linen fabric for its health benefits (specifically its antibacterial qualities), it does have one downside: It wrinkles easily if not ironed properly before being worn! But since this type of fabric drapes nicely when wearing something else underneath it (like another layer of clothing), you can avoid having your clothes look like they've been through hurricane season while still keeping yourself comfortable all summer long!


Cotton is a natural fiber that's breathable, comfortable and lightweight. It's easy to clean and wrinkle-resistant, which makes it an ideal choice for the summer months when you want to be able to move around freely in your clothes without worrying about getting sweaty or overheating. Cotton also has a long lifespan—you can expect your cotton clothing will last at least five years if you take care of them properly!

Cotton is affordable too: if you buy high-quality fabrics like cotton then they'll cost less than other materials used in making clothing such as wool or silk (which are much more expensive). Plus when compared with synthetics like polyester or spandex which tend not only be heavier but also less breathable than natural fibers such as cotton so they're not quite up there with their counterparts when it comes down being comfortable while still feeling stylish during warm weather days."


  • Mesh: A lightweight and breathable material, mesh is used in a variety of ways. You can use it to make lightweight dresses, tops, pants and shorts.
  • Dresses: You can also use mesh fabric for making dresses that are comfortable enough to wear all day long.
  • Tops: A great way to incorporate mesh into your wardrobe is by making a top out of it! The material feels light on your skin when you're wearing it and allows for maximum breathability during warmer months as well as wicking away sweat during sweatier ones (like when working out).


Seersucker is a lightweight, breathable fabric that's made from cotton and silk. You can wear it on its own or layer it with another fabric to create an entire suit.

Seersucker is perfect for summer because it's so breathable—you'll stay cool in the heat of your day without having to worry about overheating or sweating through your clothes. It also looks great with patterned shirts and ties—you'll feel like you're wearing something special when wearing seersucker!


Chambray is a lightweight fabric that can be worn all year round. It's breathable, soft and comfortable—and it looks great in any season. You can dress up or down this versatile fabric with an elegant blouse or pair it with jeans for casual Friday night out on the town.

Chambray also comes in a variety of colors so you'll never run out of options when choosing what to wear!

These fabrics feel cool and comfortable.

Breathable fabrics are lightweight, comfortable and easy to wash. These breathable summer fabrics are also durable, versatile and stylish!

  • Lightweight: You can wear them all year round as long as it’s not too hot out. This fabric won’t weigh you down or make you sweat like other heavier fabrics would do.
  • Breathable: The material in this type of fabric allows air to pass through it more easily than other types of clothing would allow air to pass through them easily. This makes it perfect for summer because it helps keep your body cool while still allowing you to stay comfortable during the warmer months of year!
  • Washable/Dryable: Just like most other clothes out there these types are also machine-washable (but hand-washing is recommended) which means that after wearing them once they can be thrown into any washing machine without having any problems with shrinkage or damage caused by water exposure when doing so!


If you’re looking to feel cool and comfortable, then you should look no further than these breathable fabrics. They can be worn in any season, but they are especially good for summer because of their breathability and lightness. If you’re into this type of fabric or want something that feels less expensive than linen but still has a luxurious feel, then seersucker may be what you're looking for. We hope this article has helped give you some insight on how best to choose between these fabrics!
