5 Reasons to wear Linen in Summer!
Posted on September 30 2019
Nothing could be more aligned with summer than linen! There is nothing worse than wearing clingy clothing that makes you sweat and feel uncomfortable in summer. It's a season you want to be hanging out with friends, enjoying cocktails, chilling out at the beach, and all the other experiences and joy you can only experience in summer. You also want the ability to just get up and go and grab something quick and easy to wear on your way out the door.
Here's 5 reasons Linen needs to be your fabric of choice in summer!
Unlike other fabrics, with the right care, linen doesn't fade very quickly. As the summer sun beats down on us, linen fights back. It rarely ever fades! You can wear your favourites to visit the beach, this summer, and not worry about it being prone to major fading.
2. LINEN IS SUPER BREATHABLE
Linen is the most breathable fabric available on the market right now. A good quality linen shirt for example is much lighter than your classic cotton shirt, and this makes it far more comfortable to wear when the temperatures soar. Linen skirts and pants will not stick to you, and jackets will remain comfortably worn. Where there is a breeze, you will feel it flow through your clothing ensuring you remain cool, calm and collected.
3. MODERN AND SOPHISTICATEDLY COOL
Linen is resistant to heat and therefore makes for perfect summer wear. Sometimes in hot weather it can be hard to work out what you can wear that will make you not only feel cool and look stylish at the same time. Linen can offer you both. Just think slick linen jackets thrown over your outfit for that upper-class look without the upper-class price tag.
4. CLEAN AND SCHMICK
Linen is known to reject dirt and even when worn multiple times, does not get that worn-out furry texture. You could be reusing your favorite linen trousers over and over again and they still, somehow, manage to retain their look. When linen is looked after properly, it remains clean and tidy looking. Linen is a worthwhile investment into your future wardrobe, as you will be able to wear your signature linen pieces for years to come! You'll be able to hit summer #ready every single year.
5. LINEN: PLAINS OR COLORS
Linen is the perfect fabric not only for your plain colored pieces that you can color up when needed, you can also color up and add depth and texture to your other outfits. Consider starting with a plain linen layer, add color, and another texture like fur or leather, along with accessories to really bring an outfit to life!
