3 sun in style
Touting the tag line, “Where hip meets health,” K&J sun protective clothing blocks out 99% of harmful UV rays, is 100% cotton and has no chemicals added. Because sun protection should begin at birth — one blistering or five non-blistering childhood sunburns double the lifetime risk of developing melanoma, a potentially fatal form of skin cancer — dermatologist and founder Dr. Mona Gohara developed these fashionable, functional tees for age birth to 24 months. kjsunprotectiveclothing.com; about $20
