Spend your summer vacation in breathable cotton dresses!

Cotton DressES

Whether you’re into solids or prints, cotton dresses should be at the top of your shopping list when you’re adding to your summer wardrobe. 

While you have many fiber options for your summer dresses, natural fibers are definitely best for hot climates because they’re more comfortable than synthetics. For example fabrics of cotton, linen, silk, and various different fiber blends. However, cotton dresses are always the best during the summer season. Reach for a colorful floral wrap dress in a tropical floral printed cotton for the ultimate summertime vibes.

Cotton dresses are easy to wear because the fabric is so breathable. Especially when you are traveling to destinations with warm or even tropical climates, you’ll be thankful for the lightweight cotton fabric that you won’t be too sweaty in. Tip: even if your cotton dress gets wrinkled, you can just spray it with some water and hang it to dry!
