I read it somewhere, ‘when you see cool, you feel cool. When you wear cool, you feel cooler. ‘ That’s the philosophy one should entirely adopt when theyr’e choosing their clothes for summers, particularly in India where things really get heated up. Translate this into your child’s wardrobe, and you’ll have no issues in deciding what to buy for this summer. There’s a reason why bright reds, pinks, yellows and even greens are called summer colours. They look cool, feel cool and absorb less heat.
Scientifically, that’s the best reason I can provide, when choosing the right summer colours as light colours tend to absorb less heat than darker ones. Personally, I can tell, it’s soothing to the eye. When you see a child wearing dark colours in scorching heat, you automatically feel how heated he may be, whereas when you see a little girl strutting in a florescent pink skirt, you feel she’s comfortable. Summers are a chance to experiment with new colours and I can’t stress enough on how important it is to introduce your kids to new bright ones. When you see new colours, you open up a new horizon of thoughts.
Whites do well too, but tend to get dirty very easily, so I prefer yellows and orange for my son whereas pinks and reds for my daughter. Nowadays, many companies like berrytree provide a large variety of fancy prints in these colours too. Flowers, jungles, animals, stripes, polkas- all do really well in summers. You could choose either, and just watch your kid look so lovely.
Colours are one thing, and fabrics are other. I love Organic Cotton and always recommend my readers to use it as much as possible. It’s soft and absorbs sweat much faster than any other fabric. It washes easily and lasts longer. It really is the perfect fabric for harsh summers as it helps in keeping your kid’s body cool, naturally.
