There are a few fabrics that are breathable and will help beat the beat while keeping you fashionably up-to-date with the latest trends.
5 Fabrics to Beat the Heat in Pakistan
Here are 5 fabrics of our choice to beat the heat in Pakistan:
Cotton will be your best friend throughout the summer. Be it kurtas, t-shirts, shirts, maxis, or any other form of dressing you prefer, this breathable fabric is light on the skin, allows air to ventilate around your body, and some lightweight cotton even absorbs moisture, keeping you sweat-free.
Lawn fabrics, just like cotton are breathable and allow air to ventilate. In Pakistan, lawn is the most preferred fabric for both men and women. Moreover, it absorbs water, keeping you dry and more importantly it’s quite affordable for the vast majority.
Linen is also a popular choice because it’s loosely woven and allows heat to escape while absorbing moisture, however, it wrinkles fairly quickly, so you may want to be selective of when you decide to wear it.
Chambray is ideal for shirts, tunics, and dresses. Chambray is a plain-weave fabric, which is typically made from 100% cotton, but there are other variations to select from.
The term seersucker refers to a specific type of cloth that’s light, durable, and comfortable. To be considered a seersucker, a fabric must be puckered (crinkled texture). Moreover, this particular fabric is typically made from 100% cotton, though some tailors have introduced silk stripes.
