- Cotton is your new BFF.
It’s time to leave those gorgeous furry sweaters and exquisite shawls behind and rearrange your closet centering on the cotton treasures you have.

Go for the casual dress anyway because making others happy is not your job, but keeping your body comfortable is. Go for looks like these to keep it chic and comfortable at the same time:
These basic rules should get you going for the perfect summer you always wanted.
