THE JOY OF LINEN

Irish Instagram star Retro Flame reveals how to wear summer’s favourite fabric, from work to weekend

I’ve always been a huge fan of linen, especially in warmer weather. I live in New York and summers here are very hot and humid, so it can be tricky to dress for the climate while still staying true to my style. That’s where neutral linen pieces come in – super light, easy to style and always chic. Every closet needs a classic white linen shirt: I’ve paired my favourite with these jeans and white heels for an monochrome look, adding a pop of neutral colour through a jacket. Come the evening, I’ll simply swap the jeans for wide-leg pants and killer heels. For a more dressed-up feel, go for matching linen pants and a jacket, or a floaty dress. Both looks are amazingly versatile – perfect for work, weekends and weddings.
