Summertime means hot weather and plenty of hours spent outside in the sun for most people
The sun's damaging rays can put a damper on time outdoors but there is a fast solution: The clothes you wear.
UPF (Ultraviolet protection factor) clothing provides an instant physical barrier from the sun on areas of the body that the clothing covers, according to stylist Melissa Garcia.
Garcia shared on "Good Morning America" Tuesday must-have clothes with UPF protection of 50+, strong enough to prevent UV rays from penetrating your clothing onto your skin.
Shop the looks and get ready to arrive at your next summer activity in safe style.
