AHHH… Linen! It just shouts summertime! I have an obession with all things linen. I especially love linen camp shirts and breezy wide leg linen pants. (as shown above by blogger Songofstyle.com). The beauty of linen is the lightness of the fabric. Linen keeps its cool even on the hottest of days. The fabric is truly a classic. Yes, it wrinkles. But, I believe that adds to its casual appeal for summer. It looks chic, yet not overdone. I find it genuinely helpful as I become more mature in age. Linen pants are certainly more flattering than shorts, and the lightweight fabric covers my arms and keeps me cool.
Wear linen in multiple ways. Pair a beautiful linen blouse with a skirt or a pair of jeans on a cooler day. Try a white tee with linen pants. Look for linen in a variety of colors as well as prints. Wear it wrinkled or freshly pressed – you be the judge.
Today, I am sharing some of my favorite linen items to help you keep your cool this summer.
