When it comes to comfortable trends this summer, nothing beats the terry cloth styles—aka “towel” clothes—that we’ve been spotting all over our favorite influencers lately. Yep, the retro fabric reminiscent of 1970s poolside glamor is having a major moment right now and is making its way into our wardrobes this season in the form of cute and cool rompers, matching sets, bikinis, bucket hats, and cover-ups, to name a few.
The plush fabric may be heavier in weight than other summer fabrics such as linen or cotton, but its fluffy, quick-drying texture is perfect for keeping you cool on blistering-hot days, not to mention it’s very handy for drying off after a dip in the pool or ocean. The fun trend already has a celeb following (Hailey Bieber is a fan) and exudes a fresh and free-spirited summer vibe, which is exactly what we need this season.
