Another week, another summer style trend to lust over. With all the loud gingham prints, pale pastels, and look-at-me style ruffles around right now, we kind of forgot that summer is the season to take a less-is-more approach to getting dressed in the morning. However, there’s one trend that’s embracing summer’s chill-at-your-will mood: linen. You’ve probably seen the fabric trickling through your Instagram feed, and even if the lightweight material reminds you a little of a trip to West Elm, we promise linen has well and truly evolved past home decor and into the wardrobes of stylish women everywhere.
With summer hot on our heels, go to work narrowing down your search for the perfect linen dress—or top, pants, skirt, jumpsuit and beyond—with a shortlist of 11 brands doing outrageously good linen this season. Labels like Aussie name Faithfull the Brand, Steele, or British brand Three Graces London. Ahead, we’ve curated labels that meet every budget: from cheap and cheerful summer flings to special occasion looks from that are 100 percent worth the investment. Trust us, regardless of what you’re looking for exactly, you’re going to want to own everything in this linen line-up. Keep scrolling to start shopping.
