Now that summer is here and the sun is blazing (most of the time), putting sunscreen on your limbs before you step out the door is second-nature. Few people, however, think about the harmful rays that can penetrate your clothing—the average T-shirt has a UPF (ultraviolet protection factor) of just five, so the thin, flimsy fabrics we favor in the heat and humidity can only be worse. Besides remembering to spread some SPF from top to bottom in the morning, eco-chic brand Mott50 has a line of cute, comfortable clothing that offers 50 UPF on each piece and blocks both UVA and UVB rays, which are responsible for aging and burns. From comfy, basic tees for him and her to adorable sundresses, tunics, and beach coverups, each item is made from natural fibers and comes in several different summery colors that will keep you and your skin looking fabulous for years to come. The collection is available online and will cost you between $45 and $135, so stock up!
