Its everywhere, both high street and high end, and its the material of the season.
Do you remember when Linen trousers were a thing with some converses and were played down with a tank top or t-shirt? sadly (un-admittedly) do, and I had shied away from that trend ever since.
But this season has seen a revolt in the crinkle-hippie wonder and with its latest styling of choice, it is hardly a trend that I can ignore. Gone are the days when it was rather drab to wear the linen trouser to the local supermarket on a Saturday and with tops, dresses, suits and skirts embracing the fabric, there really is a chic way of wearing the pieces.
Not only celebrated for its chic revival but it certainly gives an overwhelming nod of approval towards the sustainable and eco-friendly way that the fashion industry is starting to head towards. High street brands like H&M and Mango push their conscious collection that proudly states its eco-friendly future focus. Taking it designer with Jacquemus’s sensational SS18 collection, Gucci’s ethereal touch and Loewe transforming staples into linen classics - wherever we turn, we can hardly shy away from the lightweight, soft touch material that we all need in our wardrobes this Spring.
If your taking extravagance with colour then its all the more important to play down the rest of the colours and cuts, paired with a matching tailored short, denim mini skirt or boyfriend jean and mule, its the perfect Spring jacket thats cool and bright.
A Linen Blouse
Easily added to your wardrobe as a spring staple, its the perfect effortless piece to be worn with any bottom option. This Mango piece in particular would look incredible against a midi, high slit cream skirt and sandals - think French riviera with a Jacquemus straw hat and bag to match.
Probably one of my favourite pieces to style and not because of the nostalgic converse moment during my teenage years, but because of how effortlessly cool they look. Worn with a slouchy white t-shirt and flat beige mules or a knitted-vest that is also taking the storm recently, equally these pieces make it the perfect day to night ensemble.
Summer is for dresses, wedding season is approaching and more importantly holidays are being booked, and this dress is the perfect solution for all of your summer bookings. Digging the indigo blue and baring backs, the piece is stunning, and with tan lace-up mules it will carry you through the season.
