Breathable and cool looks to help you beat the heat this summer

Material matters most! 

When it’s so hot out, it’s often hard to get dressed in a way that keeps you staying cool and looking good. Style expert Cecee Chilanga is showing us three must-have fabrics that every closet needs during the summer months and three looks you can style based on the fabrics.


Lyocell is a breathable, flowy fabric and moisture-wicking fabric, making it perfect for keeping cool in the summer. This floral maxi dress from H&M paired with a thin braided belt to cinch in the waist is ideal for patio hopping.
