I wouldn't. The only time I will cover my mare in the summer is for a show.
And even then, I'm there until 8 or 9 pm finishing up, and only put the blanket on once she's in the stall. Then get there early in the morning and take it off.
She's a bay, so I'm not too concerned with bleaching.
Definitely just get a mesh sheet. If you're covering just to keep your horse clean, then there's no point. It's dry in the summer, so they're not rolling in mud or anything
