How to style your linen for the summer

With its natural elegance and timeless appeal, linen effortlessly captures the spirit of summer in every thread. The lightweight lover boasts a unique combination of breathability, durability, and luxurious texture – hence why it is a staple in every coastal closet.  Its natural fibers allow air to circulate freely, keeping you cool and comfortable even on those scorchers. Moreover, linen possesses moisture-wicking properties, making it ideal for those balmy summer evenings when you want to maintain your style and freshness. What sets linen apart from other fabrics is its timeless structure.While trends come and go, linen remains a steadfast staple in the world of fashion, transcending seasons and styles effortlessly. Investing in quality linen pieces is not only a smart choice in terms of functionality, but a timeless investment in your wardrobe that will serve you well for years to come. Cotton may very well be “the fabric of our lives” but linen is the fabric that elevates it. Read on for five easy, breezy style tips on how to weave more linen into your style this summer.

  1. Embrace the simplicity of linen by opting for classic silhouettes that stand the test of time. The James linen t-shirt pairs effortlessly with tailored shorts or crisp trousers for a refined yet relaxed look, dare we even say sexy with its subtle sheerness. 
  2. Create a sense of understated luxury by embracing the art of the monochromatic ensemble. A linen suit in a soft, muted tone exudes elegance, especially when paired with minimalist accessories and a straw, wide brimmed hat for a warm nod to summer. Linen and straw are really all you need for Summer.  
  3. Even though it’s lightweight, linen lends itself beautifully to layering. For a sophisticated ensemble that transitions seamlessly from day to night, layer a blazer over a breezy linen dress or a crisp linen shirt paired with linen culottes. This adds depth and dimension to your look while maintaining an air of being laid-back. Maybe even a linen Donna shirt will be in our future. (wink wink)
  4. Elevate your linen ensemble with carefully chosen accessories that complement its natural appeal. Opt for woven leather sandals, rattan handbags, and delicate gold jewelry for a touch of bohemian charm that perfectly complements linen's relaxed vibe.
  5. For cooler summer evenings, drape a lightweight linen scarf around your shoulders or tie it around your waist as a chic sarong. Not only does this add an extra layer of warmth, but it also adds a pop of color and texture to your ensemble, making your entire look more interesting to wear but also for others to look at. And then copy you later.
