Style Staple: Linen

Made from the linseed (or flax) plant, this natural fiber is lightweight, highly absorbent, and breathes well – all qualities that keep your skin cool in hot weather.

Linen clothing tends to denote a casual vibe, but in the right structured garments, it can also be interpreted as “dressy”. Sometimes linen pants get a bad rap – they’re seen as those baggy numbers with an elastic waistband or drawstring that you would probably wear as beachwear. But, a good pair of tailored linen slacks can change the game.


  1.  Choose a bright color instead of the fabric’s traditional neutrals.
  2. Throw on your favorite printed top paired with white linen pants.
