Why Linen?

If you’re looking for that everyday staple shirt, smart casual dress or casual pants for women, linen checks all the boxes. Renowned for its superior quality and temperature regulating properties, our range of women’s linen clothing is the perfect go-to staple for ladies looking for comfortable yet stylish clothing.

While linen is largely thought of as a summer staple, this organic fibre is perfect for you to wear confidently all year round due to its versatility. Linen is ideal to wear as a standalone, with linen or for layering purposes as it adds body and texture to your outfit. Linen is one of the most versatile additions you can add to your wardrobe and is essential to developing a time capsule closet.

Linen is lightweight, breathable, quick to dry, airy, cool to wear and wicks moisture away from your body. Linen’s temperature regulating properties allows your skin to breathe, leaving you feeling fresh, dry and chic all day long. Not only does linen offer climate control properties, but in allowing your skin to breathe it possesses natural anti allergenic properties which protects the skin from bacteria and is good for those who suffer from allergies, dry skin and eczema.

Unlike cotton, linen uses fewer resources throughout the manufacturing process, is more ecologically friendly and has a far greater lifespan. While both fabrications are breathable and lightweight, the sustainability of women’s linen clothing makes it a superior choice. Linen is a highly durable fibre, which improves with every wash, becoming softer and more comfortable with time whereas cotton becomes more threadbare. It is this user-friendly capacity that makes linen perfect for everyday dressing and the ultimate addition to your core wardrobe.

We highly recommend linen for everyday as it pairs well with anything from a classic sneaker to summer sandals. For day-to-day wear, we recommend a relaxed collared blouse. This versatile piece in a classic white will work with anything from washed denim to linen shorts. For a casual look, roll the sleeves and partially tuck the front of the shirt into your bottoms of choice. If you prefer a more smart-casual look, add a statement piece of jewellery.

Work Wear

Summer is the ideal opportunity for dressing head to toe in linen. Having a staple linen dress is essential to your core wardrobe. Short sleeve summer dresses offer the ultimate comfort and style and can be worn simply with a wide brimmed hat and sandal. Change the sandal to a small heel for a more elevated look.

For a day at the beach team a linen shirt with pair of loose fitting linen pants over your swimsuit. White is the perfect colour for summer for a fresh, crisp look.


Women’s linen clothing is the perfect layering piece for the trans-seasonal months and offers an abundance of texture and style to your outfit. Layer a shorter chunky knit over a collared linen shirt and denim. Add a leather jacket for added warmth and style. Alternatively, style your linen shirt by wearing it over a long sleeve turtleneck.

Winter is the perfect opportunity to play with texture and shapes, bringing your linen pieces to life.

Care Tips

Caring for linen is essential to ensure that your garment gets better and softer with each wash. A key to doing so is by always following the care instructions inside your garment as a guide to appropriate care.

Linen is fully machine washable and we recommend using a delicate or cold cycle with a gentle liquid detergent. This is as powders tend to coat the fabric and damage the fibres. You can hand wash linen however must be careful to avoid wringing the fabric out to retain softness. Wash your linen pieces with items of a similar weight and colour for best results.

Quick drying, linen is best when air dried flat or hung on padded hangers to retain its shape. We would recommend drying linen in the shade however if air drying is not possible, a gentle, warm tumble dry will do the trick. Remove the item from your dryer while it is still damp as this will retain the fabric’s softness and reduce creasing. With the proper care linen has little need for ironing, a light shake will in most cases remove any heavy creases. Linen should always be stored in a cool dry place for best results and longevity.


Travelling With Linen

Linen is one of the most highly recommended fabrications to travel with, and with good reason! This breathable, ultra-comfortable fabric is your ideal travel companion as it takes up a minimal amount of suitcase space. This teamed with its lightweight nature means that you can pack that extra tee or more casual day dresses!

Versatile and easy to wear; women’s linen clothing offers ideal dressing for ladies travelling to both warm and cooler destinations. As a soft natural fibre, we recommend wearing a light linen dress or blouse on the plane for comfort during long journeys to cultivate the perfect long haul flight outfit. Effortlessly dress linen up or down easily for any occasion whether it’s to wear beachside on a European summer getaway or worn with heels and tucked into high waisted pants for an interstate business conference. With a quick dry time, you can effortlessly wear your linen pieces from day to night and completely transform your look.

Our key travel packing tips for women’s linen clothing is to ensure that you roll each item individually before placing them in your suitcase. This will maximise room while simultaneously reducing the garments capacity to wrinkle. While linen does have a tendency to crease, simply shake the item out or give it a light spritz with water and press flat with your hands and you’re ready to go explore an exciting new city in style.
