Summer is here and it’s time to make a few changes in your wardrobe. While winters meant heavy and comforting fabrics, summers call for light and fluidic fabrics. If you are not sure how to go about this change and which fabrics to avoid, here’s a little guide for you on fabrics to stay away from.

In summer we have this tendency to sweat profusely and our garment should be more comforting and airy. A lot of times we pick up the wrong fabric to wear in this hot, sultry weather and cause discomfort to ourselves. Presenting the fabrics that you should stay away from this season.

Silk or satin Avoid wearing silk and satin fabric during the day. Keep it for evening soirees or cocktail parties. Silks ain’t a god absorbent as compared to cotton and therefore wearing it on a hot, summery day will leave you all sweaty.Polyester
The fabric got popular because it is wrinkle and damage resistant. But wearing a polyester shirt or dress in summer can leave you with sweat patches since polyester is also water-resistant and doesn’t absorb sweat at all.

While a lot of us are still spotted in our denim jeans in this hot weather, it is advisable to ditch denims in summer. They are neither breathable nor stretchy. This fabric can’t stop you from sweating since it will make you feel hotter and your day would be spent in utter discomfort.


Velvet is not suitable for the Indian climes in summer. They are thick and heavy, and also have this tendency of getting warmer with time. We are often intrigued by the lushness of the fabric and want to wear it for parties in summer. But you would be making the biggest mistake if you think of wearing a velvet dress in summer.

Lace and net

They might look airy but they cause itchiness and redness to the skin because they are made of synthetic fabric. It is advisable that you avoid wearing synthetic fabric in summer because it will give less comfort and more pain.
