Trendy Ways To Work Linen Into Your Wardrobe

By Anubha Das

Updated - June 9, 2022 6 min read

Correct us if we're wrong, but we doubt your idea of a fun summer involves sweat-heavy clothes and the feeling of a heat stroke, all day long. Whether it's the dry heat beating down your head or humidity interfering with your ability to breathe, wearing certain fabrics, like polyester or nylon, usually ends up aggravating the discomfort in the hotter months. We mean, sure, you can rock a chic flannel outfit in peak summer, but a couple of hours into the day, you're gonna wish you'd opted for something more breathable. 

 

Something like linen. The unsung hero of hot-weather-friendly fabrics, linen not only feels pleasant against the skin, but also lets it breathe by quickly absorbing moisture and leaving a refreshing coolness in the wake. So, it goes without saying, that if you asked us to recommend any fabric to stock up on for the balmy days ahead, linen would emerge as a solid winner.

 

Love the idea, but don't know how to go about it?

Here are some must-have linen summer outfits:

 

Men: 

1. Blue Formal Shirt from Park Avenue (Price: ₹1,499)

Linen shirts are a must-have staple for summer. Brands like Park Avenue have perfected the art of making comfy, lightweight linens at affordable prices. Check out this linen formal shirt. In a rich blue hue, this linen shirt is cut in a casual silhouette for a slightly oversized fit that'll come into its own in your holiday wardrobe, buttoned down as far as you're willing to go in the day, then up to the top at night.

2. 100% Linen White Shirt from Celio (Price: ₹1,399)

This is a linen shirt for the modern man. Created from airy linen in a relaxed shape, this white shirt comes with a regular fit and a classic spread collar. It has short sleeves, and a single pocket, and is finished with matching white buttons. Wear it with rolled-up tan chinos or navy shorts for a casual look, or simply pair this linen summer outfit with a light-coloured blazer for a business meeting.

3. 100% Linen Slim Fit Grey Pants from Celio (Price: ₹1,749)

Linen pants, but make them dressy. These pants from Celio are the perfect option for anyone looking to dress and impress while still catching that breeze. They have a slim fit. The pants pair well with a white button-up shirt, and a nice blazer or vest if you’re looking to make a fashion statement.

4. Hangup Solid Cotton Linen Men's Kurta Set from Shoppers Stop (Price: ₹1,161)

This linen kurta is all you need to make a style statement on the daily basis. The colour alone steals the show, however, the straight fit and collar make it a smart and charming attire for all occasions. Not only will it spruce up your look exponentially, it will also keep you comfy and sharp throughout the day. You can wear it to the office, to your friend's party, to important interviews and to family gatherings. Don't forget to deck things up with sneakers and a beaded bracelet (when going casual) or a wristwatch in your hand.

5. Brown Solid Short Sleeve Linen Shirt from Indian Terrain (Price: ₹2,999)

Swap this short sleeve linen shirt from Indian Terrain for your go-to polo T-shirt when you want to up the sophistication factor while remaining cool and comfortable. This style works well with light denims, chinos of just about any colour and of course, your best summer shorts.

Women:

 

1. Red & White Striped Round Neck T-shirt from Park Avenue (Price: ₹1,599)

The deeper hue of this red and white checked short-sleeved top makes it ideal for transitional weather, since it works just as well for fall as it does for spring and summer. You can pair this linen summer outfit with shorts or slim cropped pants and espadrilles or sandals to complete the look. Packable, easy to wear, and perfect for work, vacation, or play—it’ll look amazing any way you want to wear it!

2. Van Heusen Peach Trousers from Planet Fashion (Price: ₹1,999)

The thing about culotte-shaped trousers is, that the silhouette in itself is flowy, comfy and effortlessly stylish. So, a pair of linen will only be a complete delight to wear during the hotter months of the calendar. We'd recommend you get this pair of Van Heusen trousers to add a contemporary fashion appeal to any light-coloured top you pair it with.

3. Blue Dress from Allen Solly (Price: ₹1,931)

You know, all of us have been there. Days, when you want to look like you are dressed up, but also wish to be comfortable enough to spend the better part of your day in an office chair. I think we've already established that linen is one of the most comfortable, lightest fabrics to don during this time of the year. So a linen tunic dress that lets you go from drab to fab by throwing together a few accessories, or a great pair of shoes, is a must-have!

4. AND Solid Linen V- Neck Women Wrap Top from Shoppers Stop (Price: ₹1,699)

Personally, wrap tops are one of our absolute favourite trends, simply because of their flattering look on practically everybody. Throw linen into the mix, and we're sold! Seriously, this V-neck linen wrap top is like a breezy summer dream, as comfortable as it is elegant. It will help you stay cool, and by pairing it with white trousers and some gold hoops, you'll look like you’ve just got off the runway.

5. Lilac Round Neck A-line Kurta from W For Women (Price: ₹1,349)

Talking about breezy ethnic wear, we cannot give a dainty linen kurti a miss. With a host of options, silhouettes, colours and kurta cuts to choose from, take your pick and get a reliable linen kurti into your summer closet. We'd suggest choosing one with a cut flattering your body type, and some interesting details to play up the fashion piece. Like this beautiful lilac round neck A-line kurta with sequins work on the yoke and tie-up at the back.
