It’s that time of the year when our fall-approved wardrobe and spring-inspired separates just won’t work with the warm weather. If you’re stuck on what type of fabric works best with the summer season, we’ve got the answer: linen! Since linen is made from the fibres of the flax plant, it’s extremely strong and tends to dry faster than cotton, which makes it perfect for hot weather! Its airy and lightweight feel easily ranks it first place when it comes to fabrics this season. Sit back and relax as we show you three ways to wear the luxurious fabric this summer.

1. Casual Days Out

For your casual and relaxed days out, linen will definitely be a top choice as it truly combines the best of natural comfort. For a top, opt for a button-up blouse or a not-so-basic basic tee! Both can effortlessly pair with your go-to bottoms. When it comes to bottoms, however, short is sweet this summer and we’re loving linen capris and shorts! These shorter styles will definitely help you in beating the heat (in great style) this season.

2. Going Out Chic

If you’re looking for a linen style that’s summer-suited and great for a day out with friends, our linen dresses are the perfect fit! For a playful twist to your look, opt for our tropical print dress that’ll definitely look as good as it feels. Another great way to achieve effortless feminine styling is with our floral print skirt, featuring a straight silhouette and neutral tones. Speaking of skirts, our button detail skirt will easily elevate any look with its soft silhouette and side slit! Or, if you’re searching for a look that speaks to your lively side, opt for this linen jacket. With its tie-dye effect and denim-like fabric, it’s an all-time classic with a twist and perfect for your summery days out.

3. Professional & Polished

As a natural and breathable fabric, linen is perfect for your days at the office! Opt for a stripe print set, featuring shorts or wide leg pants and a chic notched collar jacket! Their beige hue and striped design create an ultra-feminine yet professional look that’ll definitely suit the office vibe. Or if you’re searching for a relaxed yet polished look, opt for our button detail wide leg pants that combine the best of comfortable style. Pair it with a blazer and get ready for an airy and lightweight style that’ll give you an elevated look, effortlessly.
