Sumary of Dressing for hot: How a warming planet is changing what we wear:
- The concept is to transfer the cooling sensation of stone into the garment, Agarwal said.
- The result is a garment that feels slightly thicker than a quality shirt, as if wearing light padding.
- So those who can’t stay out of the sun entirely — or who work in an office with a dress code — need other options.
- As climate change brings more intense heat waves, the next frontier in climate resilience is the clothing we wear, with innovations that promise to cool and dry the hot and sweaty masses.
