Summer Niqab Look---a white niqab

On hot summer days, the non-muslims seem to think we are more suppressed than ever, especially our niqabi sisters, all covered up in what they imagine to be unbreathable fabrics, and black black black. Actually, my black abayas and niqabs have all the weight of an airy nightgown, but to stop the ever annoying non-muslim summer catch-phrase: "Aren't you hot in that?" why not where some quality fabrics in colours other than black? I love a white niqab paired with a floral bag and a cotton airy jilbab in a fun shade like berry, though pink and light olive are lovely too.
Niqab from http://www.hijabgirl.com/sn1002.html for $9.95 USD.The Muslim clothing store also has this niqab from http://www.themuslimclothingstore.com/zen/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=195&zenid=d34bac72f8ef3a9a8dfc98064325643c for $9.99 GBP. Which is more my thing, because I HATE elastic half niqabs. I don't find them comfy or practical for hourly wear.
