Summertime is practically synonymous with linen by now (at least in my book). The moment the temperatures start to rise the breezy texture is all I can think about. Goodbye, denim—hello, linen. Not only does linen allow you to breathe and keep you cooler during the hotter months, but it looks ultra-chic while doing so. There’s nothing more timeless than a crisp linen button-down over a swimsuit or tailored linen trousers for an alfresco dinner. For me that’s a win-win, so I’m typically living in the airy fabric from June through September.
Since linen is a staple in my summer wardrobe, I’ve been browsing all the major retailers for the best pieces to add to my closet this year. Clearly, they’ve gotten the “coastal grandmother” aesthetic memo because there’s an overwhelming selection of chic linen styles to choose from right now. From tailored sets to colorful button-downs to standout sundresses, it’s safe to say they have our linen needs covered. I personally couldn’t be more thrilled by this and there are too many good options not to share.
Below, I’m highlighting the 30 best linen pieces I found, plus some examples of how fashion girls are styling theirs right now.
