You may have recently noticed linen has come back into the trends. Linen shirts are not just for the holidays at the beach. Thanks to fashion bloggers and contemporary designers, linen shirts have become a daily fashion style choice.
Here are a few ideas on how to make a linen shirt work for different occasions.
Make it colorful
If a white or an ivory looks too romantic-novella for you, or if you feel you don’t have the tan to pull it off yet, give a shot to the colored linen shirts. A baby blue is definitely the new black of linen – it will go with dark colored pants as well as with denim. We love the baby blue because it makes every skintone look radiant.
Wanna go for a more stylish look? Try pink and match it with light greys – you will look sophisticated and stand out in a crowd.
Make it fit
For a more polished look, tuck the linen shirt into the waist of your pants or skirt. If your linen shirt is longer on you, let the hem fly free and layer it with a chunky short sweater. Don’t be afraid to go as short as a crop top – the asymmetry of lenghts will add contrast and character to your look. All casual fashion-lovers will confirm that the way the sleeves of a linen shirt roll up is just perfect. Unbutton the cuffs and roll the sleeves back following the width of the cuff. Don’t obsess over making it flawless – let the free-spirited texture of linen shine through.
Create your own style
A linen shirt goes well with many things: from black skinny jeans and heels to washed denim and sneakers. Make it the blank canvas for chunky statement jewellery. Contrast the lightness of linen with heavy brass or some shining slver: unbutton the collar and add an accent with a colorful necklace. A bold piece of jewellery will also come in handy when you need to switch up your office gear to happy hour look with some friends.
From work to entertainment, a linen shirt can become the most versatile piece of your closet.
