Linen has officially shaken off its ’80s mum vibes to become the go-to fabric of the season – a chic, fashion-forward essential for your vacation, office and wedding wardrobes alike. That’s thanks in no small part to the modern and desirable takes by some of our favorite designers: look to wear-anywhere dresses from Jacquemus and Mara Hoffman; jumpsuits by Nicholas; easy, effortless robes by Sleeper; and boardroom-appropriate suits by Nili Lotan.
White and black are the no-brainer choices, especially if you’re looking for something to wear in a more urban environment, but pretty florals and washed-out pastel shades will bring a summer-ready, bohemian air to your look. Styling-wise, you can keep things minimal: reach for earthy tones and simple accessories like a classic wedge, barely-there sandals or wicker bag for the perfect finish.
