Why am I including it in my winter-to-spring transition wardrobe?

This versatile design can be worn as a stylish cover-up and is the perfect finishing touch for year-round accessorizing.

Weather getting nicer?
The sun is shining and you’re running for cover to get away from those UV rays. NOPE, not anymore because you’re wearing AmberNoon, a contemporary line as a way of providing sun protection for people who are not adequately protecting themselves from the sun’s harmful UV rays.
Developed by Dr. Erum Ilyas who spent the past decade studying and evaluating fabrics and textures to create wearable clothing for sun protection. Based on her passion to provide safer and more effective solutions for sun protection, Dr. Ilyas founded her own sun-protective clothing line called AmberNoon.
- Sun protective.
- Thoughtfully designed.
- Classic style.
- Stay healthy. Stay beautiful.
This clothing line is an extension of her experience as a dermatologist and textile expert. From tops to pants, dresses, and coverups, you’ll find everything from workout wear (because we all love to run in the sunlight) and swimwear to daily essentials.
With the incidence of skin cancer still rising, it is her hope that more people will recognize and understand the need for daily sun protection. AmebrNoon launched online in late 2017 and rapidly grew to open a flagship store in Wayne, PA, and was also featured at the Market @ Macy’s in Fort Lauderdale and Atlanta.
- Size: XS – XL
