Linen clothing in Summer makes sense in warm and especially humid weather since the fabric breathes. Annie from Most Lovely Things and I would like to share our favorite linen apparel with you.
There are some new pieces that you may wish to add to your wardrobe to feel cool, chic, and fresh!
Linen Dress Garments
This J. Jill linen midi dress gathers with a tie under the bust. It also has pockets and comes in red. This is a petite small (I’m 5’1″) they also have regular and tall sizes).
I brought a lightweight white cotton cardigan to dinner in case the air conditioning was cool.
What I like about linen dresses is that they are so simple… one-and-done.
This green breezy A-line shirt dress is a favorite of mine. It also comes in blue and yellow and in tall, petite, and regular sizes. It can be dressed up a little or even worn as a bathing suit coverup… which is versatile if you are traveling.
I’m wearing a white padded bra tank underneath from Amazon that my sister gave me. I like it so much I bought two more (good price). They are great under T-shirts too.
The necklace was 60% off at J. Jill and is no longer online but may be in the store. And I just noticed that I missed a button :/
Linen Shirts And Blouses
This is an outfit that I would wear to Target or to run errands. The platform slides are comfortable and 50% off. My sister gave me the Kate Spade crossbody purse (sold out but this is similar) for my birthday.
How To Care For Linen Fabric
I wash like-colored linen on the delicate cycle in cool water in the washing machine. Then I put it in the dryer for just a few spins and hang it damp to dry. It looks like this at this point…
Next, I will steam or iron some of the wrinkles out but I don’t kill myself doing it as it will wrinkle as soon as I sit down. So embrace the wrinkles! It signifies that it’s real natural linen.
Other Linen Clothing In Summer
I’ve shown you these linen outfits recently in the past. But here is a little recap.
Top left: This no-iron linen blouse is like the white linen top I’m wearing with the jeans above. I took it out of my suitcase in San Diego and hung it up and it literally looked like this the next day.
Top right: This embroidered tunic dress is a linen blend and is lined.
Bottom left: This is a blue version of the green J. Jill dress that I’m wearing above. I bought it last year and it’s sold out but you could get it in yellow, medium blue or green.
Bottom right: I love this Faherty linen dress and will be taking it to Portugal with me in July. I hand-washed it and hung it to dry and it did not need ironing.
