Beat the heat with Linen
Summer is synonymous with frilly dresses and floral designs. It is that time of the year when less is more, and especially to beat the heat, your fashion mantra is comfort. But what if you can combine both fashion and comfort at the same time?
Well, instead of starchy cotton, you can look glamorous in breezy skirts, trousers and blouses, all in linen. Linen is a cool fabric that is extremely light, breathable and durable, that effectively rescues you from the weather.
It is also non-allergic and naturally insect-repellent, which can be cooler and more comfortable than any cotton garment. It may look like cotton due to their similar textures, but linen is obviously more expensive owing to the effort involved in making it.
Linen can beat most fabrics in versatility. Whether it is adorned as a beach wear, or as regular office going wear----it looks great when worn well.
The white linen gown is a must have for most stylish women. Whether you choose to incorporate a subtle palette of shades or loud, bright colours in your linen wardrobe, we guarantee that linen will replace all other materials in your closet, especially for the weekend getaways and holiday trips you plan to make.
Linen as a fabric, sports a natural shine, and mixing it with silk, rayon and viscose adds to its appeal.
What was traditionally thought to be a fabric mostly worn by men in their late 30s, the change in trend has brought this fantastic fabric to women, to give them ‘that look’ and also save them from the heat. And what's more, women are linen endorsers like never before. Hence, it caters to the taste of men and women with great aplomb.
Even though linen looks best in pastel shades like sandy brown, creamy white etc, if you are bold enough to experiment and not be led by fashion police, go ahead and sport exotic floral prints on your white linen blazer. Or else, choose dark colours which will camouflage the wrinkles and go all out with linen this season!
