Linen Fashion Trends for 2023: Must-Have Pieces and Styling Tips

Hello, Linen lovers! Time to get some new ideas for this summer heat. Today, I’m going to talk about our favourite fabric of all time again: linen. Yes, you heard me right. Linen is not just for your grandma’s curtains or your dad’s boring shirts. Linen is the ultimate summer staple that is chic, versatile, and sustainable. And guess what? Linen is having a major comeback in 2023, with some of the hottest designers and brands showcasing their linen creations on the runways and in the streets. So, if you want to be ahead of the curve and rock some linen looks this season, keep reading our tips on how to choose, style, and wear linen clothes like a pro.

Why Linen?

Before we dive into the trends, let’s talk about why linen is such a great fabric for summer (and beyond). Linen is made from the fibres of the flax plant, which makes it more eco-friendly and less resource intensive than other textiles. It’s also incredibly breathable and naturally temperature-regulating, meaning it will keep you cool in the heat and warm in the chill. Linen is also durable, easy to care for, and gets softer with every wash. Plus, linen has a unique texture and drape that gives it a casual yet elegant vibe that works for any occasion.

What to Look For

When shopping for linen clothes, there are a few things you should pay attention to:

  • Quality: High-quality linen can be expensive, but it’s worth the investment. Look for linen that is certified by OEKO-TEX Standard 100, which ensures no hazardous substances are present. Also, check the details page for any linen clothes you’re considering. Some clothes are made using linen blended with other textiles, which could make the fabric less breathable or durable. We put our trust in European linen as it is heavily regulated.
  • Fit: Linen is a fabric that can be worn loose or fitted, depending on your preference and style. If you want a linen dress that is incredibly breezy and loose to your form, look for A-line skirts, sheath silhouettes, and relaxed fits. You can also size up if you’re looking for a dramatically oversized look—which, as Style Director Sara Holzman reports, is one of summer 2023’s top trends. If you want a more tailored or structured look, opt for linen clothes that have some stretch or are cut close to the body. You can also use belts, buttons, or ties to cinch in your waist or create some shape.
  • Color: Linen comes in a variety of colors, from classic neutrals like white, beige, and navy to vibrant hues like yellow, pink, and green. You can’t go wrong with any color of linen, as long as it suits your skin tone and personal style. However, if you want to be on-trend this season, look for pastel shades like lavender, mint, and peach that are fresh and feminine. Or go for earthy tones like olive, rust, and brown that are warm and cozy.

The Styling Tips

Now that you know what the trends are, let’s talk about how to style them. Here are some of my tips on how to mix and match your linen clothes like a pro:

  • Play with proportions: One of the easiest ways to create an interesting and flattering outfit is to play with proportions. For example, you can pair a loose linen top with fitted linen pants, or vice versa. You can also layer different lengths of linen clothes, such as a long linen dress over short linen shorts, or a short linen jacket over long linen pants.
  • Mix and match colors: Another way to create an eye-catching and fun outfit is to mix and match colors. For example, you can pair pastel linen clothes with bright linen accessories, or earthy linen clothes with metallic linen shoes. You can also create contrast by wearing complementary colors, such as blue and orange, or purple and yellow.
  • Add some texture: One more way to create an appealing and unique outfit is to add some texture. For example, you can pair smooth linen clothes with rough linen bags, or soft linen clothes with crisp linen hats. You can also mix different types of fabrics, such as silk, cotton, or velvet with your linen clothes.
