Ways To Work Linen Into Your Wardrobe
A Linen Tunic Dress
You know, all of us have been there. Days when you want to look like you dressed up, but also wish to be comfortable enough to spend the better part of your day in an office chair. I think we’ve already established that linen is one of the comfiest, lightest fabrics to don during this time of the year. So a linen tunic dress that lets you go from drab to fab by throwing together a few accessories, or a great pair of shoes, is a must-have! You can play up the silhouette, or opt for a quirky print!
A Linen White Shirt With Mandarin Collar
Every woman must have a classic white shirt she can blindly fall back on, and that’s common knowledge. But a linen white shirt is a piece we guarantee you won’t regret investing in. For starters, it’s immensely versatile, easily becoming the centrepiece of a casual blue denim and white shirt outfit on one day, and bringing together an easygoing formal look on another. But the advantage of a linen white shirt is that it will be super-lightweight and fresh, especially on days humid enough to leave sweat stains on a shirt made of another material! Go for a mandarin collar to further expand your styling choices, and perhaps some dainty detail like the loop buttons in this one.
Striped Linen Wrap Top
Personally, wrap tops have got to be one of my absolute favourite trends, simply because of how flattering they are on practically everybody. Throw linen into the mix, and I’m sold! Seriously, this striped linen wrap top is like a breezy summer dream, as comfortable as it is elegant. It will help you stay cool, and by pairing it with a pair of white trousers and some gold hoops, you’ll look like you just got off the runway.
Help me, I’ve fallen in love and I can’t get up. Co-ords have been all the rage lately, and we’ve seen some stunning ones varying in length, cut, fabric, silhouette and sleeve type. But this one meets the point between trend and comfort so perfectly, I doubt I will go for any other kind. I think a linen co-ord set like the one below, would make for a perfect hot-day work outfit that looks uber-graceful and classy. Style with a few minimalistic gold accessories like a dainty necklace and some bracelets, and you’re literally and figuratively golden!
Linen Paper Bag Shorts
If you have trouble resisting a great pair of shorts the way I do, then trust me and get yourself some paper bag shorts in linen. The cinched waist and free-flowing body of the shorts make it an extremely flattering summer piece to hold on to, perfect for a casual coffee date outfit. And obviously the fabric of linen takes the comfort factor of this silhouette several notches up! I especially like the olive green colour in the pair below, because of how versatile it can be when pairing with a top.
