5 Days, 5 Ways: How to Wear a Linen Shirt
Ready for anything
Our Spring Style Guide is presented in partnership with Uniqlo USA, dedicated to creating clothing that never stops evolving because your life never stops changing. Simple apparel with a not-so-simple purpose: to make your life better.
Spring is the perfect time to add a few lightweight pieces to your wardrobe.
First up? Linen.
This natural fiber exudes ease – you can literally wear linen anything and still feel stylish in 100ºF weather. If you’re not the ironing type, and want to keep the wrinkles to a minimum but still hit a high Easy-Breezy Quotient™, opt for a linen-cotton blend.
The linen shirt: Uniqlo, $30
This uber-soft Uniqlo style is made with premium linen from the Normandy region of France, in an Aero processing technique that gives the fabric a soft, airy texture. A shorter hem and slender cut makes it an ideal light layer for spring and summer.
SG Says: Linen means business when it’s paired with a smart suit and leather accessories.
SG Says: Linen works as a great base layer on mercurial spring days that shift from sunny to breezy in what feels like a matter of minutes…
SG Says: Linen’s breathability makes it a great base layer for April and May’s notoriously muggy showers.
SG Says: Colorful chinos and a Harrington jacket look just as good paired with a linen shirt look at the office as they do after hours.
SG Says: A linen shirt works wonders as a stylish layer when traveling (and facing cool AC on a hot day).
