Time for Linen

By Silhouettes1 · March 7, 2011 · 0 Comments ·

Since spring is on its way, it’s time again to think about linen. This lightweight cotton fabric is great for warmer weather, loose-fitting clothes, and can be layered over other pieces really easily (which is good for spring days with varying temperatures).

A short-sleeved linen shirt like this one works well on its own, but you can also layer it over a tank top or cami and mix and match colors to contrast with each other.

When you wear a long-sleeved shirt, pair it with a vest like in the photo, roll the sleeves for a casual look, or wear it over any tighter-fitting shirt for an extra layer.

And these lightweight linen pants are perfect for when it’s not quite warm enough for shorts or a shorter skirt. If you tend to be heavier in the hips and thighs, the wide legs on these pants are flattering and slimming, too.

So when you’re thinking about clothes for spring, don’t forget a few pieces of classic linen!
