Sun-Safe Style

Throwing on a cover-up might seem like a smart move to limit sun exposure, but in fact, most summer clothing is surprisingly weak at blocking harmful UV rays. Sun protective clothing, with a certified Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) rating, is different. The fabric is engineered to absorb the sun’s UV rays before they reach your skin. Anne Botica and Monique Moore, founders of Mott 50, knew the benefits of UPF-rated clothing, but they wanted to do more with it. Their smart, casual designs are transforming utilitarian garments into fashion-forward apparel that’s easy to wear. So you’re not only protected, you’re also stylish. At the beach, pool or park, Mott 50’s Santa Cruz swim top (UPF 50) has adjustable ruching so you can wear it as a top or dress. It’s soft, quick-drying and breathable, which makes it easy to go from kayaking to paddle boarding to cocktails on the beach without feeling waterlogged. For your head, Mott 50’s Rusty Bucket Hat (UPF 50) is feminine yet structured enough to shield your face and eyes from the sun. If you really want to protect your skin from sun damage and premature aging, tossing on a T-shirt isn't going to cut it. Mott 50 delivers fashion that protects.

    Hi there,

    The dress is offered in small, med and large sizes right now. They also fit a big on the snug side so keep that in mind. We'll be sure to update the site if we are able to offer an extra large or plus size.

    Google uv clothes. There's a bunch. (For men too). Probably not as pretty though but being sun sensitive and being an uncomfortable 3X and 76yo. There's nothing for me, especially that I can afford, so it's long sleeves that through which ill still get burned.
