Hello Spring…”When is it “ok” to wear linen?” Typically, linen is regarded as a summer fabric.
Linen is a very popular, versatile fabric that never goes out of style. This natural fabric is known for its comfort. It allows the body to breathe, and so linen is especially popular in warm climates. With the proper care, linen can be a timelessly stylish wardrobe staple.
Linen is a natural fabric made from the fibers of the flax plant. Linen is a favorite fabric of some top designers. Also popular are blended fabrics made from linen combined with other materials, such as cotton, wool, silk, or synthetic fibers.
From the business suit to the little black evening dress to casual resort wear, linen is at home in virtually any setting. You can dress it up or dress it down with some simple accessories. Pair up your linen pants with a cashmere sweater in the fall, a silk blouse in the spring, or a cotton tee in summer. In some cases linen can go from office to evening effortlessly.
Some people avoid linen clothing because of its tendency to wrinkle very easily when worn. These days, some linen clothing manufacturers use a special finish on the linen that reduces wrinkling.
I say, Bring on Sunny & 75 … and summertime clothing!!!
Put a little style & flair in your life…with Panache!!!
