Summer Breeze - How to Wear Linen and Love It

As summer starts to heat up, it's time to ditch heavier fabrics for lighter weight clothing. And what's lighter than linen? It's airy, breathable and keeps you cool all day long no matter what the temperature is. And if you hate to iron, linen is a dream. It's supposed to look a bit wrinkled. Yes, I just told you to actually wear your clothing wrinkled (but only when it comes to linen)!

Keep it Casual
If you are the type that like your shirts starched and your pants pressed, linen may not be the fabric for you. But if you embrace the casual, relaxed vibe of summer then go for it. Linen is going to wrinkle. Just embrace it. Reach for a natural linen tee or tank top and pair it with your favorite shorts and sandals.


Color - Always
Use summer as an opportunity to inject some bright colors into your wardrobe. Reach for a linen dress or a summer scarf in a pop of sunny florals.




Don't Forget White
There is nothing better than a loosely woven white linen shirt. Wear it untucked with a pair of ankle length skinny jeans or go more fluid with a loose pair of pants. Throw it on over your swimsuit for a casual beach vibe or tuck it into a pencil skirt.
