Let's start with the basics. Poplin is a textile made from a plain, strong fabric with fine horizontal ribs. There's poplin wool, poplin silk, poplin rayon ... and my personal favorite: poplin cotton.

You can find a beautiful button down in a crisp white cotton poplin, a dress, even a raincoat. Poplin cotton is durable, yet silky, lightweight, and water-resistant: all attributes that make it an ideal spring/summer material. But the best part? It's an affordable material that won't make you spend your entire week's earnings.

Lightweight + soft + affordable = The perfect spring/summer material to buy now.

So get shopping. Here, we found our favorite poplin items of the season for you to buy before they sell out.
