We often spend the cooler months waiting for the fashion opportunities warmer weather is bound to bring (mini skirts, halter tops, hot pants), but it’s easy to neglect to recall just how excruciatingly hot some locations have the potential to be. At that point, when even the clinginess of a mini and tiny shorts began to hold in too much heat, there’s only one weather appropriate option to turn to — linen.
We’ll be the first to say trends move at breakneck speed these days, but sure as the summer season is to come back around annually, you can count on the linen craze to crop back up everytime. Granted, as some of most lightweight pieces on the market, the style remains a staple out of practical necessity, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that linen pieces are always pretty chic, too, and are becoming increasingly stylish. Whether you’re on the hunt for an easy button down top, or a maxi dress for a more elevated occasion, these pieces are your key to staying staying and looking cool this season.
