Clothing in general is a great way to make sure you're protected from UV lights. Wearing a hat with a wide brim, wearing long sleeves, and pants instead of shorts make sure that the majority of the body is covered and protected from skin-damaging UV rays. However, there are specially designed UV clothing that can give you a little better protection. These clothing tend to have an SPF grading just like sunscreens so you know exactly how much protection you're getting.
