Summer materials 

When it comes to who looks the best when the sun is out, nothing looks better than someone who looks comfortable in all scenarios. To achieve all-round comfort in the hot weather, there are a few materials that can work well in the summer.
You may not have heard of this cutting-edge fabric technology, but it can be lifechanging for those who fear of patches on their clothes — especially when the suns out. The last thing you want when the sun is shining is to feel out of place, or even having to go to the excessive lengths of changing your outfit. So, 37.5 technology has been designed to combat this issue. 

This technology has the ability to work with your body and determine whether you need warming or cooling. As well as this, the vapor stage allows it to move moisture out of the clothing before liquid sweat can form — perfect for those who like to keep active as well as sunbathe. 

Alternatively, wearing cotton can be great for the summer months, it is very soft and breathable due to how light it is. Rayon is another material that is suited with the hotter climate and is made from a mix of cotton, wood pulp and other natural or synthetic fibres. The fabric has very thin threads, which allows it to breathe more than other fabrics, as well as being quite light to prevents it from sticking to the skin. 

What to wear 

Pool Parties 


Are you heading to a pool party? . Whether you’re ultra-confident or like to be more reserved when you attend these types of events, there’s plenty of options for you to choose from. When it comes to swimsuits, pastel colours are in this season. Don’t be afraid to pair your swimsuit with a silky-cover up that can be easily put on and taken off when you please. 


When you’re planning to attend a pool party with the lads, you want to look your best whilst being able to have as much fun possible in and around the pool. We recommend wearing microfiber polyester shorts, and because they absorb more water than polypropylene and nylon — you can opt for bright colours. When it comes to the shirt, you want to go for something opposite to your shorts; so, if you go for bright shorts, go for a dark shirt.  

Romantic Beach Walks 


When you set out on a romantic beach walk, you want to complete it in full. The last thing you want to feel is the struggling of making it to the other end — to combat this, you need to wear light materials. Wearing a beach dress that is made up of viscose materials and go for something that is predominantly dark but has flushes of bright, bold and beautiful colours in. Pair these with loose-fitted sandals that can be easily removed when you’re venturing out into the water. 


You want to look good when completing a romantic walk across the beachfront — but opt for simple attire that can still make you look like the perfect date. When picking your shorts, go for a fitted chino-style that are made from cotton, as this will undoubtedly compliment the rest of your outfit and prepare you for the rest of the day. Pair your shorts with a plain top and wear a pastel-coloured shirt on top without buttoning it up, as this will help you show off a mix of materials and colours. 

Summer Festivals 


This is where your creative fashion freedom is unleashed — when dressing for a festival, there is nothing that you can’t mix and match with. Dressing for a festival all comes down to personal preference, however, there are some recommendations that we must give. You don’t want to be wearing a dress at a festival — opt for cottoned shorts that are spacious enough to let you dance the day away, as well as a light vest top that allows your body to breathe. For your shoes, go for something flat like converse or buckled sandals so your feet do not get tired! 


Just like the girls, the opportunities you have to dress your best for a festival is limitless. You have the ability to be as creative as you’d like. You want to wear a bright and bold silk shirt that has lots of patterns on it; something unusual that isn’t commonly worn every day. It’s not just the girls who can have fun and dance the day away; you can too by wearing comfortable cottoned shorts that aren’t too tight on your leg. For your shoes, go for white trainers that can complement the rest of your outfit. 

How will you be dressing this summer?
