10 Pure Cotton Summer Staples For Women

By Somdutta Mazumder

Updated - May 18, 2021 7 min read

Doing any activity during peak summer is a hassle in itself, but when you add heavy clothing material to the list, the problem becomes a lot more stifling. Sweat stains and clothes clinging to your skin do not make for a pleasant experience, especially during the hot and humid months. Fabrics like nylon, acrylic and polyester are slow to absorb moisture and tend to trap heat. So, if you step out on a busy summer day wearing clothes made of one of these materials, you're in for a bad time and that's putting it mildly! 

 

So, what kind of fabric would your skin approve of during this sweltering time of the year? Cotton, of course! Quick to absorb moisture and expose it to the atmosphere, the summer-friendly fabric of cotton helps your body cool down even when the harsh sun is beating down your head. It's also a poor conductor of heat which translates to comfortable and fuss-free all-day wear during the summer season. If your closet lacks cotton currently, don't you worry in the slightest. We've listed 10 cotton staples you must snag and opt for this summer! 

 

1. Coral Cotton Solid T-Shirt From Nnnow

 

Price

INR 299

 

Why We Love It 

Solid coloured t-shirts are an absolute must-have for the season of summer, and when they're made of 100% comfy cotton there's even more reason to invest in one. This pick from Nnnow is simple and structured with short sleeves that let you keep your cool, and a stylish ribbed round neck. The coral colour is immensely attractive, and also lends the t-shirt with oodles of versatility in terms of styling options. Pair it with basic jeans for a fuss-free look or opt for a dressier outfit by tucking it into a pair of stylish culottes!
