Cotton makes a fashionable, economical statement – Analyst

With three months of unbearable heat and humidity ahead, now is the time to prepare for summer's onslaught by stocking up on a warm-weather office staple: cotton.

“Cotton is great for summer because it's not only an economical alternative to heavier and more expensive fabrics, but it is also lightweight and breathable, which is perfect for hot and humid summers,” says Abbey Cook, Product Trend Analyst, Cotton Incorporated.

J.Crew's stretch chambray suiting in British khaki is lightweight, with a slimming silhouette that will never go out of style. But these days, office appropriate cotton options are no longer limited to the standard summer seersucker. Cotton cardigan twinsets, light-weight pencil skirts, and classic cotton twill are other options for a sharp look at the office that can still beat the heat.

“Durable and versatile cotton suiting can withstand the wear and tear of being worn all summer long and even into the fall,” says Cook. “In October, simply swap the light-weight cotton tees or tanks out for a heavier-weight cotton cardigan. Crisp cotton pants dress up any office wardrobe and are a worthwhile investment, even in this tough economy.”

Complete the ensemble with bright cotton tops for a splash of color in a fabric that will breathe. Banana Republic offers a variety of cotton poplin tops in classic styles and modern colors that will complement any neutral suit. J.Crew's cotton camisoles are the perfect antidote for summer's humid weather. And for a softer look, Ann Taylor has a variety of cotton cardigan twinsets with office-appropriate necklines that will maintain a business look.
