Thanks to a de rigueur quarantine uniform of loungewear and face masks (both the public and private variety), we had previously paused our usual seasonal-shopping routines: new desk chairs, yes; new sundresses, less so. However, as the mercury climbs and our questionably functional AC's capabilities decline, we're ready to press play on investing in summer-friendly fabrics that will get us through these next few sweltering months at home.
In addition to breathability, sustainability is also top of our shopping lists — so, while we browse our favorite online haunts for the breeziest buys, we're also intent on devoting our dollars to fabrics that have the smallest environmental footprint. Ahead, six sustainable summer-friendly textiles (from hemp to linen, Econyl, organic cotton, and more) worth keeping in mind as you start adding wardrobe staples back into your carts this season.
