Styling Linen … for This Relentless Heatwave

Words: Yours truly • Photos: David

This heatwave is never ending! I didn’t build up my wardrobe to accommodate this sort of climate!

Not complaining though because if it wasn’t for this heat and humidity, I wouldn’t have started shopping linen clothing and I wouldn’t have realised how much of a magical material linen is — so here’s an #ootd post on how I intend to dress for the rest of summer.

 

I love to layer: and not even a 28°C day could stop me from layering up! I wore the hero piece on top of a super slim fit plain white tee from ZARA, which (I found out the hard way) is not very flattering for the figure if you plan on feasting!

For bottoms, I went for these skater shorts, which are my new summer staples because their bagginess means lots and lots of airflow.

In terms of footwear, these loafers are my go-to at the moment. They’re both comfortable (the leather is super, super soft!) and easy to style; the perfect combo really for this warm weather… I mean ain’t nobody got time for painful shoes when you’re quite literally dragging your feet under the scorching sun. To finish off the look, I went for these blue-tinted glasses as they matched the blue stripes of the shirt.

 

That’s it! My question for you is : are you enjoying linen as much as I am? If you have any tips for dressing for this record-breaking heat, make sure you comment down below!

这几天英国超热!在国内的朋友们记得穿着要凉快一点哦!

    I’ve only just gotten into linen recently too but I couldn’t live without. Linen trousers for work have saved me from boiling in the office!

    Love that top, good to see how you’re styling it – I’m cotton all the way during the heat!

      I used to be cotton-obsessed too, until recently! Thanks for the comment, much appreciated!

    I can’t believe the heatwave is going on for so long. I also don’t know what to wear, so thank you for the linen tip!

    I love your style, as if it gets too hot, you can remove your top shirt. Looking really smart there too staying cool and still stylish

      Yes, and I did remove it a number of times throughout the day! Thanks for your comment!

    This fabric is super useful, especially where I’m from, it’s like heat overload. Great post!

      Thanks for your comment! It’s not usually this hot in Manchester… so I could never quite appreciate it, until now!
