7 Fabrics Stylists Say They'll Never Wear

Not so good fabrics

The appearance and convenience of an outfit can be affected by the properties of various fabrics. Here are seven fabrics that some fashion designers may choose to avoid:

1. Polyester

Polyester, despite its adaptability, can be uncomfortable and retain heat, leading to sweating and discomfort.

2. Acrylic

Acrylic fabrics can feel scratchy and lack permeability, causing skin irritation and discomfort.

3. Vinyl or Patent Leather

These materials are typically rigid and impermeable, resulting in sweaty, uncomfortable conditions.

4. Nylon

Nylon can have a plastic-like texture and lack permeability, resulting in moisture buildup and discomfort.

5. Low-Quality Rayon

After laundering, rayon of inferior quality may shrink, lose shape, or pill, affecting both comfort and appearance.

6. Cheap Silk Imitations

Silk imitations of low quality may lack the opulent feel of genuine silk and may not drape well.

7. Too-Tight Latex

Latex clothing that is too tight can be uncomfortable and constricting, particularly if it restricts movement.
