Which is why I’m dedicating this blog post to my number one fabric and honing in on my top linen outfits for spring and summer.
Be it casual short-shirt combos for weekend shopping dates or more dressy numbers for evening garden parties or date nights, the following have been handpicked by yours truly and will ensure that you’re (effortlessly) dressed to perfection this season.
H&M have outdone themselves this summer and this linen blend dress that evokes high end Erdem vibes is only evidence of that. Perfect for a garden party or occasion dress this summer, it looks like it should cost a whole lot more than it is!
The same can be said for this linen shirt dress. Organic, natural, earthy, chic – another timeless classic that will suit all shapes and sizes.
The quality of these linen dresses from Theory was obvious from the minute I unboxed them, so much so that they instantly reminded me why I love linen so much! Comfortable, chic, effortless on… The fact that they come in a range of colours is a bonus too.
White Drape-Back Dress in Good Linen
Reformation is having a moment this season if you ask me and this linen top and short combo only highlights that opinion. Loose fitting and relaxed, in the most perfect shade of oatmeal… together or separate, they’re the kind of staples that you can throw on and instantly feel good.
I mean, I couldn’t do a post on linen and not include this Karen Millen duo could I? aka. Some of the first linen pieces that I bought this season and have worn on repeat for the past few weeks. Though it’s selling out fast, if you manage to get your hands on this shirt and short combo, you won’t regret it. In fact, I have a sneaky suspicion that it’ll become your go-to uniform all summer.
I love the volume on these drawstring linen shorts from Ba&sh. They create such a flattering silhouette and the fact that they have pockets is an added bonus.
This beauty takes linen tops to a whole new level too. From the sleeves to the open back to the knotted tie fastening, it’s subtly sexy and is the perfect day-to-night choice.
Another stunning shirt-short combo, this time from Warehouse, this two piece ticks all of the style and comfort boxes if you ask me.
I’m also a big fan of this linen button up shirt dress. Paired with my Castañer espadrilles or Oran sandals from Hermes, it’s the kind of dress that once in your wardrobe, will make an appearance each summer.
Linen Mix Paperbag Tie Waist Short
Another chic linen shirt to add to the collection, this Reiss number can be worn all year round. Together with these linen blend trousers in pale blue, you’ll be batting off compliments all day, I’m sure!
The fact that this off shoulder dress comes in both white and coral makes me so ridiculously happy because it is quite simply flawless. Perfect for strolling through European streets or balmy summer evenings abroad, it’s guaranteed to draw compliments and get heads turning.
If you’re looking for a smart dress that will keep you cool this summer, look no further because I’ve found it here. Not only is this Reiss number tailored to perfection but the midi length makes it the perfect office staple, too.
