What are the best fabrics to wear during the summer?

If you’re based in the UK, you’ll know how unpredictable the weather can be. That being said when it’s warm, it’s really warm, so make sure you’re wearing a fabric that allows your skin to breathe. Opt for cotton, linen, seersucker or rayon (viscose) for the best chance of staying cool.
