Hi, my name is Irina and I have a confession – I am absolutely obsessed with all things linen… I mean, it’s THE perfect fabric for summer. So, I wanted to share with you five outfit ideas centred around this airy material to get you inspired for the last stretch of summer.

But first, let me tell you why linen should be your go-to this summer, too.

It’s one of the most breathable fabrics, which means your body can maintain just the right temperature – no matter if it’s a bit chilly in the evening or burning hot during the day (that’s why it’s great for bedding, too).

Linen also has moisture-wicking properties and it’s hypoallergenic. As I know we are all trying to make more and more eco-consious choices, you’ll be pleased to know linen is a sustainable material, that’s ethically sourced and eco-friendly. Plus, it’s easily reciclable and biodegradable.

Not to mention that if you hate ironing (no judging here, we’re in the same boat), you can simply hang your clothes to dry to minimise wrinkles and then it’s good to go. But not to worry too much because its creases naturally give off that effortelssly chic look.

Now, I am counting down the days until my boyfriend and I are heading to Italy on holiday and I have been browsing and scrolling to find cute, linen summer dresses, shirts, skirts and more.

So, here are five outfits I’ve put together with this gorgeous material, that are ideal for romantic walks on the beach, brunches with the girls, dinners with stunning views or visiting new places.

I’ve also linked everything so if anything catches your eye you can quickly add to cart. Yes, you can thank me later. Hope you enjoy…
