You’ve lived in sweatpants for the past several months, and you have no intention of giving up that level of coziness. But it’s time to move on to a trendier (and cooler) wardrobe. Summer’s version of your cozy sweats? Cool, breathable and relaxed linen. It’s easy to throw on, naturally temperature-regulating so you’ll always feel comfortable, gets softer with every wash and is anti-bacterial.
Garnet Hill’s Linen Shop is full of on-trend styles that could be worn on vacation to the Cape or a Saturday at the farmer’s market. The best part: Their linen is also responsibly sourced from Portugal. It comes from European flax, which (and forgive us for nerding out for a sec), is really unique because it needs as much as 60 percent less water to grow than cotton, lasts even longer (longevity=sustainability) and is less susceptible to disease and pests (thus, requiring fewer chemicals and pesticides).
Yep, it’s official. There’s nothing not to love about linen. Here, five styles that will have you feeling and looking your best, all summer long.
