PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) -- It's beach weather and the sunscreen is in hand. But what about year round? Some people forget the sunscreen, but a local dermatologist has created a stylish way you can protect your skin and make a fashion statement too. 

"Why am I still getting freckles on my skin or discoloration on my hand when I'm wearing sunscreen everyday?"

That's the chief concern Mainline dermatologist, Doctor Erum Ilyas says her patients were having, so she created a clothing company called Amber Noon.   

"My thought was what if I made a contemporary women's clothing line people would wear because it's gorgeous," Ilyas said, "and happen to look down at the tag and say, 'oh my gosh, there's sun protection in there too...bonus.'"

Ilyas says her clothing covers areas people sometimes miss when applying sunscreen. There are other brands on the market, but Ilyas says her clothes go from the baseball field to a night out on the town. 

"We have lots of dresses with these half zips that look like cocktail dresses," she explained, "but you can wear it all day."
