Summer scarving!

With the summer heat on our necks, we all need something to keep us cool, comfortable and protected. The sun shines too bright in summer and it’s important to protect yourself from the heat, but hey, fashion is important, too! So, here’s that one item you must have in your wardrobe to help you with your summer style — scarves! I know what you’re thinking… scarves in summer? No way! Yes, way!

As much as we’d like our dose of vitamin D, our skin also needs some care and sunblock creams can only do so much. You need to keep your heads covered and your arms, too. A scarf makes a good layer as well as a good accessory for the summer. You can use your scarf to cover your head and arms when you feel the heat and you can style it along with your outfit when you’re indoors. But summer scarves mean you need to pick your fabrics carefully and style it well.

Here are a few tips for you to pick the right fabric and show off your killer summer style!

Fabric choices

Chiffon
It’s a very breathable fabric and dries really quickly. It absorbs moisture and is an extremely elegant fabric. It also ensures airflow and does not overwhelm you with heat. It’s one of the best fabrics you can invest in.

Cotton
