Cotton for your Summer Holiday in the Sun ?
Travelling somewhere warm, hot or humid? There is nothing like cotton to keep you cool in the heat.
Cotton a lovely fabric choice as it breathes and is so light to wear. Cotton voile the lightest cotton is the coolest with a more open weave allowing air movement from your skin through the fabric.
Weightless and light to pack Cotton pieces allow you more room in your suitcase therefore more outfit options for your holiday. You will find with good quality cottons once on hangers many creases will fall out and only a light iron should be necessary.
A sarong your Summer pashmina!
Poolside or out and about a sarong
is such a useful accessory.
A wrap for the beach…a cover up to and from. In beautiful soft cotton voile it will protect you from the sun and double as a colourful scarf or shawl. Forgot your towel? A sarong will do the job.
For all those beautiful sheer Kaftans, dresses and tunics in need of a slip a Cotton Slip
provides a great cool underlayer. A slip adds versatility to your kaftans and coverups taking you beyond the beach and poolside.
You will barely know you are wearing one but at the same time solving any sheerness, ‘see-through’ problems with garments.
*Many feel that some fabrics cling to cotton, I have found adding an A-line soft voile slip ‘moves’ as one with the top layer without riding up or sticking. So even with 2 layers you will feel cool and comfortable in the heat.
Cotton Resort Pants
So useful when travelling to countries where you do require to coverup a little more. Tunics Tops and Kaftans team well with soft cotton pants. When it is too hot for more fitting pants or jeans soft Cotton Crinkle Gauze pants
will provide relaxed cooler comfort.
Great to pull on poolside or for a day out cruising for sun protection.
Cool relaxed and easy to wear.
Tunics & Kaftans
Both are easy to wear relaxed comfortable styles perfect for beachside or by the pool.
Available in so many beautiful colours and prints they will take you many places as a dress or layered with pants. Wear as a coverup at the beach or poolside… layer with a cotton slip
and they will take you out for a casual lunch or dinner.
Keep in mind your holiday should be relaxing, a much deserved break for you...so keep packing light and simple.
Less is best especially if moving around with luggage. Stay cool! Bon voyage!
