In which season do we wear silk dresses?
“Silk is the lightest fabric though, and it tends to adjust to your body temperature, which is also why silk can be worn to keep you cold in the summer.” So we like to wear silk dress in summer.
Silk dress can keep you cool in the summer. Silk is capable of absorbing anywhere between 10-30 percent of its weight in moisture. This makes silk a moderately breathable fabric. Silk is also very lightweight and thin, which is a great help in keeping you cool. Loose-fitting silk clothes and accessories like silk scarves are great to wear in the summer.
While silk is a breathable fabric, animal (protein) fibers like silk and wool are not as absorbent as vegetable (cellulose) fibers like cotton. This means that silk cannot absorb large amounts of sweat. When wearing silk dress in tropical climates, we recommend wearing loose silk dress items such as scarves, tank tops, and maxi dresses, to avoid sweating. A tight silk dress that is worn close to the skin, like silk underwear, can make you sweat in the summer heat, as silk is also a great insulator.
