How to Stay Sun Safe & Wrinkle Free with Patchington

Here at Patchington we’re focused on carrying stylish sun protection you actually want to wear.  Did you know our sun safe styles are wrinkle-resistant and can help prevent signs of aging?  Keep reading to learn how our UPF 50+ fashions can keep you sun safe from everyday to vacay.

Sun Protective Clothing

You may not realize that you can get a sunburn through your clothing and even in the shade. Incorporating sun protective clothing into your wardrobe is the best way to avoid the sun’s harmful rays and is the environmentally conscious future in sun protection. Many sunscreens contain BP-3, a chemical that is harmful to our waterways, sea life and especially coral.

Patchington carries several different lines of sun protection clothing, our own Private Label, Coolibar and Cabana Life, from casual and sporty to feminine and flirty. From the pickleball court, to the beach, to the boat these brands are made to protect you wherever you go. Most are wrinkle resistant UPF 50+ fabrics that are perfect for travel.

Our sun protective fashions don’t have to be worn just at the beach or on the boat. We have styles that are perfect for brunch or summer weddings, still offering protection from damaging rays. See how many ways you can feel protected and on trend.
