As the summer temperature drops and the leaves begin to change in color, it’s time to start thinking about what clothes you will want to bust out for those Friday night football games and post-summer parties.

 

Here are a few tips on how to dress accordingly for the autumn season:

 

1.   Dress in Light Layers

 

Dressing in light layers allows you to easily adapt to the changes in weather—those cold mornings and warmer afternoons.  Throw on a long sleeve thermal, pullover hoody, or a sweatshirt while varying in layers of fabric tops, loose tee shirts or knits to show your sense of fashion.

 

2.   Same Goes for the Children

 

Dress up the children with hooded long sleeves and thermals, and deck them out with some comfortable toddler pants.  If they are comfortable, congratulations, because that is less work for you!

 

3.   Colors that Match the Season

 

Orange pumpkins and black cats may be creeping around the corner, but deep oranges, rusts, golds, browns, creams, and black are great colors to match with the seasonal change.  Let nature guide your attire and match the season!

 

4.   When in Doubt, Choose Plaid

 

Talk about mixing and matching colors!  Plaid long-sleeve shirts are huge in the fall.  The varying colors allow you to combine many different cooler or warmer colors.

 

5.   Cover Those Legs

 

Ditch the summer shorts and grab hold of some of your favorite jeans you haven’t seen in a while.  Ladies, maybe it is not a jean’s day and dressing in pantyhose, leg warmers or high socks sound like a better, more playful plan.  Royal Apparel’s Spandex Jersey Yoga Pants and Leggings will surely keep you feeling comfortable all day long.  Mix and match colors our legging options with your skirts and dresses that make your outfit pop, while keeping your legs nice and warm.

 

Dress for the season with Royal Apparel.

Bamboo fabric is becoming a popular alternative to conventional cotton clothing and a growing trend in the fashion industry.  Bamboo has the following attributes:


Bamboo is Eco-friendly

Bamboo can be grown without pollutants and pesticides.  Bamboo is also easy to harvest and when replanted, it grows quickly without leaving long-term effects to the environment.


Bamboo is Easy on Skin

Bamboo is smoother than cotton and other fabrics, which are more sharp and easily irritate skin. People who are allergic to certain fabrics generally do not have negative reactions to bamboo fabric.


Bamboo Keeps You Cool

Bamboo naturally absorbs water up to three times its own weight and will keep you cool and dry in the summer and warm and dry in the winter.  Bamboo clothing makes for great athletic or exercise clothing.


Bamboo Stays Fresh

Bamboo fabric has natural antibacterial properties that do not diminish by the wash.  The bamboo fabric keeps clothes smelling sweet and absorbs odor-causing bacteria.

 

This popular cotton alternative is growing—bring bamboo clothing into your stores! 

Stock up with Royal Apparel’s Unisex Bamboo Organic Tee. It’s silky soft, stylish and environmentally friendly.

Keep Your Children Cool & Safe In The Summer Heat

Thursday, July 24, 2014 1:12:51 PM America/New_York

Organic Cotton for Your Child's Safety

This baby has the right idea, but there's something missing...some protective clothing.

 

Summer’s in full swing and it is time to relax under the summer sun, but it's also an important time to keep children safe and beat the heat with appropriate summer clothing - and organic cotton is the summer-safe answer!

 

Why organic and children?  All of our 100% Organic Cotton apparel, from hats and bibs to tees and pants keep children safer from harmful pesticides, fungicides, insecticides—cancer causing agents—all that can be found in conventional cotton clothing.  Organic cotton will also keep children cool while outside in the heat and protect their skin from harmful UV rays.

 

Conventional cotton is a highly chemical intensive crop and its production uses:

 

• 3% of the world's arable land
• 10% of all agricultural chemicals
• 25% of all insecticides

 

While conventional cotton farmers spray chemicals on cotton plants to exterminate unwanted bugs, these farmers also eliminate beneficial bugs as well.  When chemicals are sprayed onto cotton, our skin absorbs these poisonous chemicals.  This is dangerous for children and infants wearing non-organic cotton products, as their skin is more sensitive throughout their youth.  Irritated skin, rashes and headaches can all be caused by the chemicals trapped in the clothing.  

 

When selling organic cotton, organic farmers are supported, children are kept safer, and the environment benefits from our actions.  Let your customers know their child can be protected against the sun and harmful chemicals with organic cotton!

 

Check out Royal Apparel’s line of organic products for infants, toddlers and youth—all made with our super soft 100% CERTIFIED ORGANIC COTTON. Made in USA.

7 Summer Time Clothing Tips Your Customers Should Follow

Tuesday, July 15, 2014 12:01:51 PM America/New_York

It’s hot, the sun’s out, and the pool is on everybody’s mind.  Summer is officially here and customers need clothing that will keep them cool in the summer heat.  That’s where we come in.  Royal Apparel has the answer to the “What-clothes-do-I-need-this-summer” question and the reasoning behind why they need to buy it. 

 

 

To cater to your customers’ needs, consider the following 7 tips and guidelines:

 

- It’s not about wearing less, but what’s comfortable and protects you from the sun

- Wear light colors, like pastels to deflect the sun’s rays.  Try colors like:

        - White, Lemon, Light Greens and Blues, Pink or Peach

- Loose plain weave or tighter weaves and knits, like cotton jersey or linen, keep you cool

- AVOID corduroy, velvets, terry cloth, vinyl and leather

- Guys; tanks and short sleeve shirts keep you cool and protect a majority of your torso from the sun

- Gals; sun dresses, spaghetti straps, strapless dresses or flared skirts are the way to go

- If you have to dress up, lightly tailored suits, jackets and slacks won’t make you sweat inside

 

Check out our clothing line to follow these helpful tips! While we don’t offer shorts, we have plenty to offer from the waste up, like tank top clothing for men and short sleeves for women.

 

It’s hot out there. Be prepared, with Royal Apparel.
