Hot, sticky days make me crave gauzy, rough, materials - linen, canvas, straw, cotton gauze, chambray. Fabrics like these don't stick to the skin and let air circulate, and they evoke a sense of ease and the outdoors.
The best part about all these materials is that they are easy to care for, and they look best rumpled. I like them best when they are clean and spare - they'll still look right in the city while bringing to mind rustic joys.
