Linen is one of those fabrics that’s classic and effortless and can easily be dressy or casual. Admittedly, I don’t have a lot of linen pieces in my wardrobe, but after buying this linen dress this summer, I know I’ll be wearing more linen in the future.It’s comfortable, lasts forever and every linen dress I have owned has been a favorite.

Another thing I love about linen is how versatile it is! I’ve seen linen dresses styled for weddings and worn to the beach.

How to Style a Linen Dress

Like I just mentioned, linen is so versatile and can be worn so many ways. I’m styling a linen mini here, but I love a good linen midi dress or a linen maxi dress! Linen is one of those fashion trends that’s not really a trend. It’s such a crisp, classic look, which means you’ll be able to wear it for years to come.

For my personal style, I love sandals with a linen dress, they’re simple and just keep the whole look chic! Pumps aren’t quite right with a linen dress in my opinion. As for your accessories, keep them simple—a handbag and simple jewelry.

3 Linen Dress Outfit Ideas

I snagged this short sleeve linen dress earlier this summer and it’s a favorite! For an easy everyday outfit, I paired it with a pair of sneakers and a big bag for toting around all my stuff—great for a work day, or if I need stuff for the kids. For an extra layer, a denim jacket would look so cute with this outfit.

A linen shirt dress is another great option for a casual way to wear a dress. It works for the beach, even as a cover-up, and can just as easily be paired with sneakers like I did here.

It’s still warm here, actually the weather has been perfect for outdoor dining, which is good since that’s what most places are offering! I dressed this up just a bit with some fun sandals and a pretty leather bag. If a hat is in your comfort zone, it’s such a nice touch!

Again, I love sticking with simple accessories and color palettes with linen. Black and tan keeps it chic for date night!

I know that fall is on my heels, so I recommend you wear the clothes for summer that you love while you still can!
