The perfect linen shirt for your work wardrobe
A linen shirt is a wardrobe staple for the office, always in style with a sophisticated look and feel that instantly elevates any work ensemble. White linen shirts and linen blouses are fresh and formal, tucked into dark pants with a blazer to add definition. Black linen adds instant elegance to your outfit, paired with matching black linen pants for something sleek and professional or contrasted with beige or white pants for a modern look.

Why a women’s linen top is a must-have in your wardrobe
Linen is a wardrobe staple for a reason. Not only is it soft, lightweight, moisture-wicking and durable, but it also has temperature-regulating properties that let you show it off in every season. Go casual in the summer with a linen t-shirt or tank top half-tucked into linen shorts or a midi skirt with a tote bag for shopping. A linen blouse can take you from day to night with smart linen pants, some heels and a few fun pieces of jewellery.
Linen shirts are fantastic for the office or around the home, unbuttoned over other tops. Relaxed-fit linen tops can even double as sleepwear thanks to their softness and breathability. In the winter, layer linen up with your favourite cardigans, jumpers, knitwear and scarves.
How to style linen tees
Linen tees take you from casual at-home days to brunch with the girls to a day at the office in an instant. With inclusive sizes that range from XXS to XXL and 3XL, it’s easy to mix and match your linen pieces with other clothing to create endless options for every day. Consider:
- Tucking a plain linen cami into a pair of linen floral belted shorts with a shoulder bag.
- Teaming a fresh white linen tee with a matching white a-line linen midi skirt for a sweet summer co-ord.
- Going casual with a colourful linen tee left loose over denim shorts.
- Tucking a neutral linen tee into smart pants with a structured linen blazer for work.
- Slipping a linen tee under an unbuttoned linen shirt with shorts and sandals.
- Styling a linen tee with a pretty print skirt and accessorising with a belt and a stylish clutch for the evening.
Lounge around in linen
Linen gives loungewear an elevated look while keeping you cool, casual and comfortable. With its naturally relaxed fit and airy feel, linen clothing is perfect for everyday styling in the summer and is made for long days spent lounging around the home. Embrace the lived-in look of linen pants paired with a soft linen tee or team a linen pleat sleeve top with linen shorts to look cute while doing nothing special. Linen dresses are fabulously freeing and feminine. Slip them on and sway your way through weekends spent in or add some accessories and take them out all over town.

How to care for your linen tops
Linen makes an un-fussy addition to the wardrobe and is easier to care for than you may think. Here are some tips to keep your linen looking luxurious and feeling soft from the first wash:
- Use a mild detergent on a gentle cycle.
- Rinse thoroughly and avoid bleaching.
- Don’t wring wet linen. Instead, re-shape and dry naturally on the line.
- Dry white linen in the sun and coloured linen in the shade.
- Iron white linen on both sides and coloured linen only on the reverse.
- Store linen clothing in a cool, dry place where there is air circulation.
DO’s and DON'Ts - What to pair with a linen shirt
There’s no real guidebook to wearing linen - it’s a beautifully versatile fabric that will go with almost anything in your wardrobe and can be dressed up or down. That being said, here are some tips to make the most of your linen shirts:
DO - Wear linen shirts with linen bottoms for an effortlessly sophisticated look.
DO - Mix and match linen shirts with different colours and prints.
DO - Slip it under a blazer for work or special occasions.
DO - Unbutton and wear over a tee or singlet for a more casual look.
DON’T - Always tuck in your shirt. Create different styles by leaving your shirt untucked over long pants or half-tucked into a pair of linen shorts with sandals.
DON’T - Stress over the wrinkles! A big part of linen’s charm is its wrinkles which give it a unique and natural beauty.
