A trend we love this fall is the use of Burn Out fabric to update basic looks.
So how is fabric “burned out?” The textured look is created by applying a chemical paste to a garment. The paste then eats through the thinner fibers of the fabric, leaving behind the fabric’s backing. The end result is a thinner and lighter garment. It’s “see through” in random spots or patterns, depending on how the chemical was applied. Pretty cool, right?
Burn Out fabric was introduced and gained momentum on the west coast and has quickly spread to the Northeast. The unique look of burn out fabric will give you an edgy look at class, the gym, even tailgating. These light-weight airy garments are perfect for layering under or over wardrobe staples to update your look this fall. So be sure to pick up a burn out tee or tank at your campus bookstore!
