18 Linen Shirts You Need For Summer

Effortless, androgynous and cool, an oversized linen shirt is a must-have this summer. Choose from boxy designs in clean white or light blue stripes, or turn to the men’s section for an authentic borrowed-from-the-boys look; just team with bare skin and lashings of gold jewellery for that nonchalant, cool-girl finish.


Linen is the perfect excuse to play with textures and proportions, so I’ll be wearing a white style with a silky midi and sandals for casual holiday evenings and warm work days – sleeves rolled up and a few buttons undone, naturally.

For an everyday edit I’ll be wearing mine oversized with denim, but for a holiday look with a difference, I’ll wear loose and unbuttoned over swimwear – with statement sunnies, it’s the cool alternative to conventional cover-ups.
