You can feel confident only if you’re comfortable in your chosen outfit and for that one of the most important factors is fabric. The fabric from which your outfit is made from should be comfortable for you. Many fabrics are so glittery that they end up being itchy and cause discomfort.

Cotton is probably the best all-time fabric but it wins the show in summers when we want something light to wear. Cotton allows airflow which makes the summer heat bearable. It absorbs moisture pretty quickly because of which we feel cool in summers. One down point of this fabric is that is creases very easily so a blend of cotton and polyester will solve the problem.
Linen is made from fibers of the flax plant and is very much like cotton. It is light, airy, and absorbs moisture even faster than cotton so it keeps you cool during the summers. Although just like cotton, linen to wrinkles very quickly so blends with polyester will be preferable.
Silk is obtained from silkworms by sericulture. It is a shiny, lightweight fabric that gives a luxurious feel. Silk sarees are particularly popular is India and are quite expensive.

Chambray is a piece of fabric that is obtained either from cotton or linen. It looks very much like denim but has high breathability so it is easier to carry. Denim constricts the skin from breathing and hence it causes sweat patches but chambray solves the trouble in style. Nowadays many jackets, shirts, shorts, skirts, dresses, pants, etc.
Wool is the most worn fabric in winters. This fabric keeps you warm and at the same time stylish. This fabric is the most desired in the fashion industry. It is not just limited to cardigans or sweaters nowadays many overcoats are also made of wool which will make you look super cool.

Satin is commonly used in apparel: women’s lingerie, nightgowns, blouses, and evening gowns, but also in boxer shorts, shirts, and neckties. This fabric is very slippery and does not absorb sweat. Usually, expensive clothing is made from this fabric as they are not worn often.
Chiffon is generally used in evening wear especially in drapes to make the dress floaty and to give it an elegant look. It is also a popular fabric used in blouses, ribbons, scarves, and lingerie. This fabric is slippery and not easy to handle hence it is used in formal clothing to give it a luxurious feel.
Tulle is a lightweight, very fine, stiff netting. It can be made of various fibers, including silk, nylon, polyester, and rayon. Polyester is the most common fiber used for tulle. It is specifically used in skirts or gowns to give them a puffy look.
