Posted on July 16 2018
People who wear linen often say they can’t imagine wearing any other material, especially in summer. From it’s cool, casual, lightweight appearance and its durable, easy to care for qualities, this natural material is a king among materials. It is literally favoured by royals!
Whether you’re dressing up for a formal event, a corporate environment, or aiming for a more casual, low-key look, linen has an innate ability to compliment every occasion. Modern linen clothes come in a variety of interesting cuts and can be styled with many accessories - straw hats, espadrilles, canvas bags in the summer, loose-knit wool sweaters and leather jackets in the colder months, you name it!
Generally, linen clothes are designed to have a loose-fit, making them perfect for people of all ages, sizes, and shapes. Often, though, people aren’t sure how to wear loose fitting linen. So here are three ideas for how to wear your linen clothes for the warmer months.
Most often, people associate linen clothes with a classic white linen shirt and a casual style neutral coloured pant. And Ann G Linen doesn’t disappoint, with a variety of white linen shirts to choose from. Collars, buttons, long length, there are many designs in our online store. To create this look we chose the Linen Pleated Slip-on Top and Missy Lux Wide Leg Linen Pants, also available in Plus sizes.
This naturally classic look can be worn loose fitting or complemented with a belt for a more professional style. Mix and match neutral colours with either dressy or casual sandals, a handbag and sunglasses to create a cool fashion statement, no matter the temperature.
Nothing says resort wear quite like navy. Paired with white or light grey these linen designs create a calm, breezy look you could wear to the office or on your next cruise holiday.

Wearing white in summer is often seen as the coolest colour to wear. And while white can be paired with almost any other colour, there is something soft and feminine about white and mint green.
