Are you ready? The heat is coming! I think it's about time I shared the best summer fabrics with you. Believe me, the right fabrics can make all the difference in the world! Temperatures are definitely rising here in Los Angeles, and I can't stand the heat. I really can't! Unfortunately I can't be at the beach and in my swimwear 24 hours a day, so I try to find the most lightweight and airy fabrics for my summer outfits. I recently bought a pair of linen pants, and I was shocked by how cool they kept me in 100+ degree weather. Seriously…it blew my mind! When you go shopping, you might want to be on the lookout for fabrics that will not only keep you cool, but provide comfort as well. I'm a big fan of the bohemian look, so I might just wear jersey maxi dresses and skirts all summer long. That's my idea of being chill and comfy chic! - By Monique Frausto
