A linen shirt is an item of clothing that every man should have in his closet. It is a versatile choice that will work for many occasions. It is ideal in summer and spring, as it is very breathable. If you don’t own one yet, you can confidently consider it. Check out how to style a linen shirt in summer.
A linen shirt can be worn all year round. However, linen is the material that is usually worn in the summer. No wonder – it is a natural fabric that is famous for its air permeability. This allows the skin to breathe and the body to sweat less. For this reason, men choose linen shirts most often in summer. In addition, linen is hypoallergenic, so sensitive people prone to allergies can successfully wear linen clothes.
A linen shirt is a middle ground between elegance and casualness. When styled properly, it can be worn on most occasions. It will be perfect for a wedding on a hot day, of course, if you go as a guest. It will also look good at a less formal business meeting. You can also successfully wear a linen shirt to a casual meeting with friends or family, as well as to work.
The level of formality of a linen shirt can be easily changed. All you need to do is match it with accessories appropriately. If you want it to look a bit more elegant, then wear a suit jacket and tie with it. In this case, a shirt in a neutral color, preferably white, will work best. If, on the other hand, you want to look more casual, then skip the suit jacket. For a linen shirt, then wear a sports jacket, and choose chinos or jeans. If you want, you can also undo a few buttons on top, then you will look more “casual”.
If you are going on a summer date, a linen shirt will be the perfect styling idea. You will look elegant, but without exaggeration. In addition, you will be comfortable and be sure that you will not be too hot. Match it with chinos and moccasins, and if there is sun – sunglasses.
Any shirt is a type of clothing that should really fit well. This also applies to a linen shirt. It is worth remembering that a linen shirt should not have a collar that is too loose, then the whole styling may look unattractive. It will be good if this type of shirt has a looser waist and slightly longer sleeves. This will make you move your arms freely. If you are not sure if you can get the linen shirt right, then go to a seamstress. She will tailor-make this item of clothing for you, in such a way that it will lie perfectly.
