Beat Summer Heat with Linen

Updated: Jun 20

Linen is a natural fiber made from the stalks of the flax plant. Known for its strength and durability, linen has been used for thousands of years, dating back to ancient Egypt. It is highly valued for its breathability and moisture-wicking properties, making it ideal for warm weather clothing. Linen's texture is crisp and slightly rough, but it softens with use and washing. Its natural luster and ability to hold dye well also contribute to its aesthetic appeal. Sustainable and biodegradable, linen is an eco-friendly fabric choice.

You'll find me wearing linen head to toe during heatwaves like we're having this week. It keeps me dry as the air goes through the fiber while protecting me from the UV rays and it's extremely comfortable!

Here are some of my favorite linen pieces for the summer :

For every day, I love this Veronica Beard dress. Simple, feminine and navy (my favorite color), I think it is a great dress and well priced as well. For a little bit more sophisticated look, I love this Eleventy midi shirt dress in pure white. I would suggest wearing this dress in a hot summer day (like tonight) at Milos restaurant or Helena. It is chic, yet casual and elevated. I am absolutely obsessed with this Zimmermann dress. It came out last week and I already sold two. it is sexy, subtle and elegant. I love the color combination as well and the deep V neck. I also love a nice Zimmermann ramie blouse (ramie is in the same family as linen, but the fiber is thiner). Worn with jeans and heels for a night out in the city, or even unbuttoned over a swimsuit in the bahamas, these blouses are very practical. For a fun sexy top, I love this linen cropped top. With white jeans or skirt, it is perfect for the summer festivities or to travel. And finally, I love this very colorful Alemais linen dress. It is festive, playful and fresh!

Let me know if you need help finding the perfect linen pieces for you, and enjoy the heatwave!
