Clothing for Warm Weather
My wife and I are fair skinned, my wife is much worse than me. I don't like wearing gobs of Suntan lotion.
My standard attire is a LS UPF 30+ Shirt from EMS, Columbia, or Ex Officio. For Pants, I wear a pair of EMS thin hiker Long Pants that have the zipper off legs. Even in the high 80's, I feel relatively cool. None of the above is cotton, but is cool and dry.
If you want to wear something even lighter, Hydrosilk is a very good material. NRS.com sells river wear that is designed as UPF protection without thermal protection.
None of the clothes that I mentions are particularily expensive and are often on sale.
If you liked my advice/response, give me some rep points. If you didn't......well what do you expect, it was free.
