Our clothing shields us from the sun, but not all fabrics and colors provide equal protection. Sun protection is an important factor when it comes to clothing. Not all fabrics and colors provide equal protection from the sun, so it is important to understand what makes clothing sun safe.
From color to construction, content to loose fit, and coverage to activity - there are several factors that play a role in how much protection your clothes can offer from the sun’s harmful rays.
Looser-fitting clothes are a preferred choice for better coverage over tight-fitting garments, and certain activities may require more sun protection than others.
For example, our ‘All Day Activewear Skirt’ has a light and airy fabric that provides UPF protection for all-day outdoor activities like running or biking or from yoga class to running errands to a night out with the girls.
The UPF Boxy Tee is designed with special features that make it sun safe, including UPF 40+ fabric and a loose fit for maximum coverage. With its breathable construction and lightweight content, this tee provides you with the perfect balance of comfort and protection so you can enjoy your sport and outdoor activities without worrying about the sun's rays.
With its breathable construction and lightweight content, this knot dress is perfect for keeping you cool and protected while you're out in the sun or partying with friends in the evening.
