Your guide to Summer Fabrics


Fitted Boyfriend Stretch Poplin Shirt

Looking to update your work wardrobe for the season? Read this write-up before you go shopping, coz we bring you a simple guide to summer fabrics that are not cotton…

Poplin: It is sometimes called as broadcloth and is commonly used in the kitchen for covering up pizza dough, cake dough and baked goods. The cloth has a smooth and silky feel that makes it perfect for the season!

Tip: Choose poplin fabrics with a higher thread count!

Oxford: The traditional oxford shirts are a good example of the Oxford weave fabric. Typically, a basket weave with multiple threads crossing over, the oxford has a unique checkerboard appearance. Despites its heavy-handed thread work, the oxford is quite soft and one of the perfect fabrics for the season.

Dobby: Fabrics with dobby weave generally have unique geometric patterns like polka dots, herringbone or simple checks. Dobby weave gives your clothing an interesting pattern that looks distinctive when styled as a solid piece.

Tip: Stick to soft and soothing colors when buying clothes or shirts with dobby weave – soft palettes are the ones that best bring out the dobby patterns!
