For Spring 2021, many top designers, including Dior, Louis Vuitton, and Fendi, showcased linen in their collections. One of the reasons for its increase in popularity is because linen is the most sustainable fabric, even more so than cotton. Refined yet casual, linen may wrinkle easily, but that is part of its appeal. Linen is also breathable and will keep you cool even in the heat of summer.
Linen blouses are so versatile and look chic worn loose, tied at the waist, or half-tucked into your denim. A white linen blazer is a fashionable layer to wear over almost any outfit and will make your look instantly more sophisticated. Linen shorts or pants have that easy-breezy vibe and are a perfect choice for an island vacation or a day in the city. Below are my selections for beautiful linen separates to consider adding to your closet.
