Linen is back and we're loving it

Linen is the summer 2018 trend that we are most excited about. Stylish, comfortable and breathable, what more could we want? Writes Keeva Tyrrell

  • Linen

With hot humid weather it’s often hard to find clothes that are stylish but that also will keep you cool. Luckily for us, linen is making a major comeback this summer and it couldn’t have come at a better time.

Whether you’re looking for a cool and comfortable outfit to go shopping in or something to wear to a special summer occasion, we have picked some of our favourite linen pieces out right now.

River Island (€55)

This River Island linen Bardot dress is the perfect day to night summer dress. Paired with sandals in the day and with wedges at night, this dress will take you from desk to dinner. Also, it is super comfortable and flowy so it is ideal if you’re going out for dinner as it will definitely hide the food baby!

Topshop (€42)

If you’re looking for something to wear to work on a hot humid day, then this Topshop striped linen top is ideal. It can be worn tucked in or out and the stripe detail and summery colour adds some detail to the basic t-shirt structure.

Bébhínn (€140)

This button linen skirt is one of our favourites in the selection, not only because it’s gorgeous but it is also Irish-made by fashion designer Bébhínn McGrath. With a passion for Irish produce and sustainable clothing, Bébhínn created the brand in 2017. The linen used is sourced from Emblem Weavers in Co Wexford and each made-to-order garment is designed and handcrafted in Bébhínn’s studio in Waterford. Irish made and so stylish, what more could we want!

Zara Blazer (€59.95), trousers (€39.95)

If you have a special occasion coming up, whether it be a big birthday or a weekend away with family, we think this linen suit from Zara is gorgeous. The wide leg trousers are on trend and pair with printed mules and a cami top, you’ll be a show stopper in this outfit.

Marks and Spencer (€140)

Although the weather has been great lately, we do live in Ireland so it is bound to get a little chillier soon so this M&S linen duster coat is definitely the perfect summer coat. The mustard colour screams summer and the length means it can be worn both during the day and at night. Paired with some trusty black jeans and a white blouse, this is the perfect addition to any outfit.
