Summer Fashion - Sun Blocking Clothes
O creative director Adam Glassman helps you sort out your hot-weather issues.
O, The Oprah Magazine | From the July 2013 issue of O, The Oprah Magazine
Q: I love summer, but I can do without the bug bites and sunburns that go with it. I know there are clothes that combat these things, but they look more functional than fashionable. Help!
A: It is possible to look stylish while being practical, and we sifted through racks of summer-clothing-with-benefits to find pieces you'd want to flaunt. I'm crazy about Parasol's entire line, including this embroidered dress, which has a UPF of 50+. (UPF rates fabric protection, while SPF rates sunscreen. A cotton tee typically has a UPF of 5.)
