Lightweight linen pieces to update your summer wardrobe

30th October, 2020

If there’s one thing that should be front and centre in your summer wardrobe it’s anything and everything linen. The lightweight, breathable fabric is about as perfect as you can get for dealing with balmy, summer days. And the added bonus is, it looks effortless and chic which is a major plus when dealing with soaring temperatures which can leave you feeling hot and bothered.

Given the prevalence of linen in most brands’ collections this season, the only difficult part is trying to decide how you’re going to embrace it. Will it be via a flowy slip dress? Crisp and classic linen pants? Perhaps a tailored white top that will accompany any summer look effortlessly? To help get you started I’ve rounded up a few pieces that will kickstart your love affair with linen. Be prepared though, once you wear it, you’ll definitely be a repeat customer.

Wide leg pants in that so-perfect-for-summer oatmeal shade should be high on your wish list. These pants can be worn dressed up with a cami or thrown on over your swimmers to take you straight to after beach drinks.

With its classic shape, you’re guaranteed to get plenty of wear out of this top. Wear it back with denim for that perfect balance of smart casual or team it with a skirt for an outfit with a soft, feminine vibe.

A loose, flowy top like this is made for warm days. Pop it on over pants or shorts and it instantly gives it a slightly dressier feel.

The colour is striking but the simply, understated slip dress will be something that blends seamlessly into your summer wardrobe. Worn back with sneakers for a day of running around, or slides for a long lunch, you’ll get plenty of wear out of this piece.

These tailored shorts are just the perfect crisp white shade to take you through summer. The best bit is you’ll be able to pair it with so many different pieces, and easily dress it up or down.

If there’s a puff sleeve involved I’m there. It’s one of my favourite trends this spring/summer, and this crop with its sweet floral print and shirring is the ideal way to lift any outfit.

A simple staple that you’ll wear non-stop this summer is a midi skirt. In white, it’s just made for enjoying afternoon drinks, barefoot whilst soaking up the sun.

Blazers should be a constant in any wardrobe simply because it’s such an easy way to dress up an outfit with minimal effort. While some jackets might feel a little heavy in summer, a linen version is the perfect way to wear one when it’s warm out.

Apart from the fact this dusty rose shade is perfection, the classic shape of these shorts is the ideal way to this summer staple in a more polished way. Team it with a white tee and sneakers or slides and you’re set.

Linen doesn’t always mean neutrals, you can also go for truly beautiful pastels or vibrant shades. This baby pink skirt is just the kind of thing to wear when you’re wanting something a little more playful and fun.

If you’re a forever fan of sleek black pieces then these wide leg linen pants are about to become your new best friend in summer. Worn with bold colours, prints or simple neutrals, bookmark this piece to be on high rotation.

How cute is this linen jumpsuit? The shirring and the puff sleeves combo is always a winner and such a chic way to do linen this summer.

It’s summer so why not wholeheartedly embrace vivid colours? The turmeric shade of this dress is just the right amount of drama to truly lift any ensemble while the finer details such as the puff sleeves, crossover bodice and sweetheart neckline are the perfect full stop to this dress.

Dreamy linen pieces your summer wardrobe needs

6th February, 2020

If there’s one thing that every wardrobe could welcome right now (mine included) it’s anything made from beautiful linen. There’s something quite effortless and elegant about anything made from the lightweight fabric that makes it a reliable go-to during the summer months and even into the early weeks of autumn.

The beauty of linen is that it’s breathable, meaning it’s a pleasure to wear when faced with a warm day as it keeps you looking stylish while also keeping you cool.

I don’t think there’s anything more wonderful than a great linen dress but given linen’s appeal, it’s also making its way into accessories such as hats and shoes and also separates and on trend pieces like jumpsuits. It’s everywhere! And we should be thankful it’s being embraced so warmly because I think it’s one of the most gorgeous options to have when you want something that’s chic and wearable that doesn’t require any fuss at all.

This summer it’s time to embrace linen for day and night

1st December, 2017

It’s time to officially welcome summer and with it introducing lightweight linen into our closets. With its resort wear feel it’s the ideal option for this time of year but more importantly it’s also a fabric that’s comfortable and breathable, making it perfect for Australia’s notoriously hot months.

And this season linen will be making its way into our wardrobe in so many incarnations. From the jumpsuit above which is ideal for balmy nights enjoying cocktails to breezy dresses and palazzo pants that are made for enjoying sunny days out at the beach or by the pool, it’s the go-to fabric that will be making its way into most wardrobes and getting quite the workout this season. Whilst a classic white linen piece is a failsafe option it’s also worth exploring prints and colour this season. From hues such as cobalt blue and millenial pink that will add a pop of colour to any outfit to retro style gingham that’s oh-so sweet your options are plentiful, and there’s definitely a guaranteed style to suit all tastes and budgets.

Embrace linen’s distinctly relaxed vibe and treat yourself to that holiday feeling every time you walk out the door.
