I don’t know if you have noticed but Linen is making a comeback this summer. In past seasons, linen has been absent with the exception of the resort wear category as designers focused on man-made fabrics. Designers are getting braver and using linen with a minimalist approach but creating remarkable designs. For spring-summer 2018, French designer Simon Porte Jacquemus used it in a collection dedicated to his mother. Brock Collection showed the fabric’s Merchant Ivory-esque side in a bateauneckline embroidered dress and Akris upped its luxe credentials with an ecru trouser suit. This summer, look for linen to return to the forefront of fashionability. The fashion audience is embracing its credentials as a natural fibre made from flax plant with an easily traceable supply chain – not to mention its breathability and great texture. Not to mention, linen’s return helps create more sustainable collection as an eco-friendly but luxurious alternative to cotton.
One of my major concerns with linen is how much it wrinkles. This cannot be avoided so as much as I love linen and no matter how careful I am while walking or sitting, it is inevitable. The solution is to steam before leaving your home and embrace that wrinkle haha. My outfit is a linen blend so I guess that helps reduce wrinkles. I can’t wait to rock linen dresses and more co-ord sets this summer. This is my first time wearing this brand and I must say I love the high waisted pants and the crop top. The fit is amazing and it’s true to size.
I recently found a personal shoe shopper in the UK and she found me this great pair of Rupert Sanderson which I absolutely adore. These shoes with the pink lips just adds character and showcases my personality. The sandals are sold out everywhere but found them in a silver.
Hope you have a great weekend:)
