Linen is a summer saviour.

Breathable and wearable in warm weather, it’s a must in the heatwave summer we are currently enjoying.

While temperatures aren’t as high as they were last week, we are still sweating on the daily commute and this limits our outfit options.

Thankfully, however, linen is an all-rounder in such a season.

It can work in the office and for summer drinks, making anyone look effortless and stylish.

Meanwhile, if you have a destination holiday planned, we think your suitcase should be 90% linen.

Even better, you don’t have to worry about wrinkles and creases – as linen looks better when lived in.

So to aid you in dressing for the rest of the summer, we’ve put together a list of nine of the best linen pieces on offer now.

Our top picks include Reformation’s stunning wide leg two piece and Mango’s green linen dress, which is a sun holiday essential this year.

It’s finally time to stop fretting about summer dressing.
