Breeze through summer with super smart fabricsJune 2017 Style Advice
The summer wardrobe is filled with flashes of exquisite colour, exotic prints and eye-catching styles – however here at David Nieper summer styling always starts with fabric.
In the warmer months fabric must work hard not just to keep us looking great and feeling summery, but also to keep us feeling comfortable in the heat, so that when the temperatures soar you can keep your cool.
Our designers advise that during summer it is best to look for lightweight, natural fabrics that are breathable, absorb moisture and have an open weave allowing air to circulate.
Cotton and linen are perfect partners for soaring temperatures, silk and silk blends are also very effective in regulating body temperature and are naturally elastic - giving a little extra stretch where it is needed so fabric doesn’t cling.
Our fine Liberty print blouse is made from tana lawn cotton, known as the ‘Rolls Royce’ of cotton.
It comes from long fibres of soft Egyptian cotton which once woven, is then washed and softened creating a beautiful fabric perfect for warm weather dressing.Shop Blouses
Hot, stuffy nights during summer can make it difficult to get a good night's sleep, so dressing for bed needs extra thought. David Nieper’s elegant wide strapped seersucker nightdress is a great choice.
The bunchy, woven fabric allows heat dissipation creating a natural cooling effect – the fabric is also crease free making it the perfect travelling companion when venturing to hotter climes.Shop Nightwear
