At this point, the return of trends from the ‘70s, ‘80s, or ‘90s is a fairly routine matter. Occasionally, however, some new trends manage to catch us off-guard. One of these trends, which appears to be one of this summer’s hottest trends, is terry cloth clothing, a.k.a. towel clothes. Yes, we said towel clothes! The plush fabric that we associate with pool hangs or carefree beach days has playful and relaxed energy – which is the exact mode we are going to channel this summer.

This trend started in the ‘70s, carrying on to the ‘80s from young fashionistas to childhood swimwear, which damaged the fashionable edge and appeal of the warm-season-friendly fabric. But now, it is coming back. Despite being a heavier weight than other fabrics more associated with summer, like linen and cotton, terry cloth’s fluffy, quick-drying texture is ideal for keeping you cool on sweltering-hot days.
