Terrycloth - the hippest fabric of summer! Two editors are discussing whether they will join this trend or not. Of course, we'll show you how to style it too.
Trend alert! Terrycloth clothing is a very popular style this summer. And rightly so! Terrycloth is made from cotton - but with a special weave. This makes the fabric particularly soft and absorbent, which is why the material is mainly used for making bathrobes and towels.
Terrycloth clothing exudes a casual, sporty retro vibe and can also be worn incredibly versatile style. Last year, due to the lockdown, we found a taste for soft, cozy fashion with jogging pants and co. So it's no wonder that many of us use the cool material for this year's summer outfits.

Michaela Strachwitz, Deputy Editor-in-chief: Only on 007, please! Do you remember the James Bond classic "Goldfinger"? In it Sean Connery wears a baby blue short overall by the glamorous hotel pool. I admit: with his attitude it was even this Fashion atrocity of the sixties to cope with. On everyone else, I find the towel fabric rather unsuitable. Nevertheless, fluffy fluffy parts are celebrating their fashionable comeback. After the ubiquitous jogging pants, the terrycloth looks now seem to be the new feel-good non plus ultra. I still fit, the parts are extremely comfortable, but absolutely for me not suitable for going out. The only exception: the next time "Goldfinger" is on, you might find me in a terrycloth bathrobe and turban on the couch. But hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh,
