WEAR IT YOUR WAY:
LINEN LOOKS FOR SUMMER

Sunshine-ready outfits to see you through the season, from versatile linen dresses and shirts to wide-leg trousers and shorts

Discover our linen dresses

Nothing says summer like an easy-breezy linen dress, whether you opt for a chic printed shift dress or something more whimsical, such as a softly striped floaty maxi dress. Thanks to pure linen’s cooling, moisture-wicking properties, it’s the ideal fabric to wear on hot sticky days if you want to look sharp. Pure linen fabric gets softer and more pliable through washing and wearing, and ours is machine washable too, so it’s super easy to take care of. The hard-wearing and naturally moth-resistant fabric can last decades if looked after carefully. Look for colours such as ivory, ecru, tan and grey to find linen in its natural untreated form.

Linen shirts and sun tops are a summer must-have

Be heatwave-ready with blouses and sun tops made from linen. Every capsule wardrobe should contain an assortment of relaxed, slightly oversized linen shirts that can be worn year-round. If you only buy one, make it a boyfriend shirt that can be worn tucked in or out, unbuttoned over a vest top or tee, or layered under a sleeveless knitted vest on chillier days. A billowing linen shirt also makes a sophisticated beach cover-up, perfect for keeping shoulders out of the midday sun.

Stock up on staple linen shorts and trousers

A pair of wide-leg linen trousers will see you through the season in style and can be dressed up or down for any occasion. Similarly, belted linen shorts with a relaxed, roomy fit are a chic alternative to denim cut-offs and work just as well with city-smart looks as they do dressed down with a T-shirt and flip-flops for a barbecue. Top-to-toe linen via a shirt and trousers (or shorts) pairing makes a seasonal change from double denim or matching loungewear, without compromising on comfort – an elasticated or drawstring waistband keeps things effortless.
