Stylist Q&A: How to style linen pieces to the office?
Linen, with its lightweight and breathable nature, has long been associated with casual summer wear, but can you wear it to the office? Our answer is 100% YES, it’s a perfect fabric to wear to work during the warmer months of the year. Our stylists share top tips on creating an effortlessly chic ensemble that balances comfort and professionalism.
Fit and fabric
When it comes to wearing linen to work, go for more tailored pieces as opposed to boho dresses with thicker or lined fabrication to ensure that you look professional and nothing is see-through.
Style your linen pieces with at least one traditional workwear item, such as a blazer, a crisp white shirt or a tailored pair of pants.
Don’t overlook accessories such as delicate gold or silver jewellery, a pair of block heels or sandals, a matching sleek belt and a tote bag. All these accessories will help you elevate the entire look.
Steamer is your friend
While linen's charm lies in its natural wrinkles, it's best to reserve that look for the weekend. For workwear, it is important to steam or iron your linen pieces, just like you would with any other fabrication to look professional and sophisticated.
Opt for colours like white, black, cream or navy when you are wearing linen for work as these colours will look smart and will be easy to mix and match with other pieces in your wardrobe.
