Don’t give up on sarees because of the summer heat. You know you look gorgeous in them. Instead of shoving them at the back of your cupboard, choose fabrics that are soft and lightweight.

Ajit Singh, creative head from Indiwear’s saree division, suggests some summer-friendly saree fabrics that will make you want to drape one every time you step out.

Cotton Sarees

Cotton sarees are all time favourite among women in summers. Breezy, light-weight and absorbent, they are perfect for hot and sweaty days. They easily absorb the sweat from your body and help your skin breathe making you feel cool.

Linen Sarees

Linen does not only keeps your body cool, it also looks classy and understated. They are comfortable and have sweat-absorbing properties. The main benefit of wearing linen during summer is that it allows easy air flow.

Malmal Sarees

They are mostly in demand and worn by women during summer as they are soft, light-weight, and have a smooth texture.

Chiffon Sarees

Chiffon is not only light-weight but also soft. The comfort you get with this fabric is totally worth the money.

Viscose Sarees

The most important aspect of this fabric is that it can be easily dyed and it retains its colour for a longer duration. The texture of the fabric allows proper air passage because of the pores.
