Chic, stylish and effortlessly wearable, there’s a lot to love about summer’s most coveted fabric—linen. But while the breezy material often lends itself to warm weather favourites like dresses and classic button-ups, this season linen has taken over traditional suiting to create a trend worthy of our immediate attention. Say hello to summer suiting.
Whether it’s Cate Blanchett on the French Riviera or Alexa Chung walking the streets of London Fashion Week, the linen suit has long been a sartorial go-to for the celebrity style set, proving itself as seamlessly versatile, designed to be worn head-to-toe for an altogether ensemble or mix-and-matched for endless opportunities.
Here you’ll find the linen suiting that’s made its way onto our warm weather wishlist, and this season its all about injecting colour and fresh new takes on traditional silhouettes. Prepare to switch out your classic neutrals this season and make way for bright pops of colour. From daring greens to pastel pinks and deep chocolates, linen suiting has gotten a striking upgrade in the form of block colours set to make a statement. Better yet, each piece can be paired with existing pieces already in your wardrobe, proving themselves as colourful additions in their own right.
Forget everything you ever thought a traditional suit has to look like, and instead, play into the exciting and fresh silhouettes being offered up this season. Whether it’s a scalloped linen skirt and matching robe from Oroton, or Zimmermann’s ever colourful prints and pastels paired together for a statement-making ensemble, the latest trend is teaching us that suiting can be fun and playful.
