Wrapped-up in Bamboo Fashion for Spring and Summer
A lot of us are already anticipating the warm spring and hot summer weather that is coming in the next few months. And with that comes the preparation for spring and summer outfits that will keep us cool and fashionable during the warm months. You best options for cool and comfy fashion are lightweight and airy clothes made with cooling fabrics. In this category, bamboo fashion earns the top spot in my casual and athletic wear.
I got my first bamboo shirt from Cariloha Bamboo and it became my favorite workout shirt because of its soft silky feel and comfortable wear. It is twice as soft as cotton, 3 degrees cooler, and it wicks moisture away from the body. This summer season I got three new Cariloha pieces to add to my growing bamboo fashion collection.
First is a Bamboo Dolman Shirt in Charcoal shade that I can use for casual or sporty looks. It has a curved hem that falls like a deep scoop and it doesn’t have a set-in sleeves. What I like about the cut of this shirt is that you can wear it three ways. It can be worn with layers, off-shoulder, or simply as it is. It can also be worn with shorts, pants, or short skirts.
My second addition is a Bamboo Linen Pants with drawstring-tie waist, front patch pockets, and button-closure pockets in the back. Aside from the stylish design, I like the lightweight and airy feel that you get when wearing these linen pants. Take it with you to the beach and pair it up with flip flops or flat sandals for a casual afternoon stroll.
I decided to get a Geo Bamboo Infinity Scarf to complement my existing Cariloha shirts and other tees in my wardrobe. The scarf is made of 100% viscose from bamboo and printed with geometric shapes in bright and bold colors. You can wrap it on your head to protect you from the harmful rays of the sun or on your neck and shoulders during cool evenings.
The soft-silky feel and cool comfort offered by bamboo fabrics make them an ideal choice for spring and summer clothing. Another great thing about bamboo is that it is naturally hypoallergenic and it repels odors. Bamboo fabrics are also eco-friendly as they are the most renewable resource in the planet. These are reasons enough for one to be wrapped-up in bamboo fashion in the coming spring and summer seasons.
