But if you prefer a version to wear during Spring or Summer, opt for light to medium weight fabrics like cotton, also chambray, linen, twill, light denim, viscose, rayon, double gauze or cotton lawn. Also, if you want to go for a more defined, structured look choose medium weight fabrics; if you prefer a softer finish, opt for lighter materials.
