The sun is high, weather is getting warmer and warmer. With nature around us coming back to life with tiny steps, we can see and most importantly – feel the summer lurking around the corner. But we must not forget, that with temperatures rising, our clothes also need to be adjusted. But which clothing/fabric choice is the best for summer season?
If you read the title of our article, you probably already know that we gonna talk about linen. It’s cool, very light, stylish and classical. Just a while ago everyone wanted to wear linen clothes, but they went out of fashion, because of how easily they got all wrinkled up.
Linen made it’s spectacular return soon after everyone started using linen bedding in their bedrooms. Because of it’s ability to wick away the moisture and make sure your body is able to breathe in the sheets, it was only a matter of time until it reached the clothing industry with it’s attractive simplicity and naturalness.
The current obsession with a healthy lifestyle also played it’s part in the linen trend. From eating clean, organic foods to wearing more classical, natural clothes, that’s how linen made it’s way back to our wardrobe.
Every fashion trend has it’s regulations, but current incarnation of linen clothing is much softer, which also means less creases and wrinkles. Everyone can wear linen clothes – it all depends on the clothing you choose.
We recommend you to go with softer colors at first. Naturalness of the fabric will greatly compliment that, so try to lean towards white or natural beige. Other, more powerful and bright colors will create an unecessary contrast between organic fabric and fakeness of vibrant colors.
This linen trend particulary looks great loose – baggy shorts, soft shirts, etc. . Those are your best choices, but try to stay open minded, because there are also plenty of other form-fitting pieces, which won’t lose their shape. Choosing your shapes is very important, by combining a lot of baggy linen clothes u risk creating a more senile look, which might not suit you.
Another thing worth mentioning is ironing. As we mentioned, wrinkles can be problematic, but current fashion trends favor more softer linen clothing, so the last you should be obsessed about is constant ironing of your clothes. The most important factor of linen clothes is the softness of the fabric.
