If I had to think about the anatomy of the perfect summer outfit, the first thing that pops into my mind it is a linen dress.
For me, the best fabric that you can wear during the hot summer months is linen, followed by silk and cotton.
Along with the cotton, linen is manufactured from a plant (flax plant) which makes it a 100% natural fibre.
It is for sure, the best fabric in terms of breathability. So, when Summer it’s fully on charge with the triple digits, I would highly recommend you wearing linen pieces. They are extremely lightweight and also highly absorbent.
We have so many options to choose from: pants, skirts, dresses, button down shirts, all ready for you to make a little room for them in your closet.You can find some budget friendly items at the mass market stores like Zara, H&M, or on the pricey side from Reformation or Free People.
The best part of having some linen pieces is that they don’t go out of fashion. Linen is timeless: our grandmothers used to wear it, our moms, and now here we are… wearing the same fabric.
The only downside to it is for sure the wrinkles. Linen creases in the first 5 minutes you put it on. That might be something that will make you say no to linen, and I can totally understand that. BUT, to be completely honest with you, it doesn’t bother me at all. Not only that, I can actually see a type of beauty in those wrinkles. As my statement says: I think there is beauty in everything!
For today’s post, I chose to style this gorgeous Versace linen dress in a different way.
Being a strapless – corset kind of dress it is definitely on the elegant side. That’s the reason why I chose to dress it down by adding the white Tee underneath and a pair of sneakers.
What are your thoughts on wearing linen?
