Whatever your summer style, a linen shirt is destined to be one of the most useful items to have in your wardrobe. The versatile, airy piece will keep you cool and looking chic in almost every sartorial scenario. The chances are you already have one at home, so now’s the moment to rediscover it and incorporate it into your weekly outfit rotation. Here are four ways to do just that.
Keep your 9-5 look lightweight by teaming a linen shirt with a summer trouser suit. A tonal colour palette gives extra luxe factor.
Style a classic linen shirt for sunny weekends by pairing it with high-summer fringing and a raffia tote. Add clogs for a ’70s feel.
Take your linen shirt out for dinner by layering it over a long satin slip dress. Golden accents elevate the look further.
Pack a linen shirt in your suitcase to wear over a tank and denim cut-offs on low-key holiday days. Finish with espadrilles and a straw hat.
