4 Timeless Ways to Style a Linen Shirt
1. Wear a linen shirt with jeans
Point a person who does not own a pair of jeans. Jeans are timeless pieces and can be styled with basically any type of top. The perfect pair to style a timeless piece like this linen shirt would be a pair of jeans. I styled my linen shirt with a skinny fit pair of jeans with a pair of white strap low heel sandals and a brown bag. You can pair a slim fit or skinny fit pair of jeans with a long sleeve linen shirt and you have got a weekend warrior’s outfit
2. Wear shorts with a linen shirt
Another classic combo of the linen shirt are shorts, these needs to be a nice pair of shorts. For a classic evening outing, pair a linen shirt with shorts. I paired mine with a black short, cinched at the waist line with a belt that has leopard print head, red heels and red bag.
3. Pair trousers and linen shirt
If you thought the linen shirt can only thrive in a casual territory, you are wrong! Just as a basic long sleeve shirt, a linen shirt can be styled with a pair of trousers. As with any shirt in formal situations, the linen shirt needs to be tucked into the trousers. Tucked into a pair of red trousers, I paired it with a pointed slingback block heel.
4. Linen shirt with skirt
Skeptical about this look when I was creating it, but it turned out just as nice. If you ever thought of how to wear a long skirt, pair it with a linen shirt, cinched at the waist line with a belt. I see myself wearing this combo for a casual day-out, you may prefer to pair yours with a shorter or a mini skirt, I totally recommend.
Which look is your favourite? To be honest, I can’t chose a fave, I would wear any of the styles for different occasions. How would you style a linen shirt? Would you be adding this timeless piece to your wardrobe?
