Whether it’s due to its environmental appeal as one of the earth’s most sustainable fabrics or the fact that it hasn’t been in the fashion spotlight for quite a while, Linen is experiencing a revival. Lately, I’ve noticed a slew of linen tops, and they are anything but bland and boring.
Here’s how this age-old fabric has been reimagined into some of the cutest tops of the summer and what it is that makes them so fresh and modern.
Colorful Prints are Trending
The loveliest linen tops you’ll see this summer aren’t one solid color. Prints have taken over, and many are just breathtaking. For example, this gorgeous linen peasant top has a stunning, watercolor floral print that gives it a breezy, tropical vibe.
Bright Colors Galore
Tan and khaki linen are the classic standby shades, but cheerful, feminine shades like this pretty tangerine seem more fresh and modern.
Linen looks Edgy
Linen has also taken on a more edgy look. Case in- point, this animal print leopard linen tunic. Who knew linen could look so sexy? In fact, it makes you look twice. Is this chic shirt really made of good, old, practical linen?
Linen Tops Have New Shapes
Linen tops are also taking on new shapes and looks. We’re seeing lots of print linen tees, off the shoulder linen tops, soft but structured silhouette tops…you name the style of top, and it is showing up in linen.
Advanced Fabric Technology
There are also new fabric technologies that make linen so much easier to wear. For example, the sleeveless leopard shirt I showed you is 100% linen, but it has unique No Iron Technology that makes it totally wrinkle-free. You wash and wear. Promise!
So if you have shied away from linen in the past because it felt old, a little dull or was just too much of a hassle with the worry of wrinkling, do give it try-on this summer.
Even if your style is classic and you prefer the look of a tried and true blue and white striped button up linen shirt, there of lots of these too. Even a small tweak, like tying your shirt in the front is a modern way to wear linen this summer.
Things change, and one of these beautiful linen tops may be just what your wardrobe needs to give it a big lift!
