Linen clothing is perfect for summer and warm weather travel. Stock up on this vacation staple with this season’s ten best pieces!
10 Summer-Inspired Linen Clothing Styles
Linen regulates temperature nicely, making it cool to touch. At first, it may seem dry and rough, but after a few more washes, linen clothing turns softer and smoother.
We love this fabric because it’s super comfortable in the heat. Unlike cotton, linen doesn’t stick to your skin even when you sweat and allows better air flow which cools your body down. This is great news if you’re traveling somewhere hot this summer: you won’t feel clammy in your clothing just comfortable.
If you think this fabric is cool (which we think it is), here’s a list of chic, comfortable linen clothing pieces you can add to your travel wardrobe in time for your summer vacay:
The ideal travel wardrobe includes several basics like Madewell’s Spit Neck Sleeveless top. You can easily mix and match this easy-to-wear blouse with just about anything! Wear it with shorts or with jeans, and finish it with flat sandals or preppy ballet shoes on your way to Spain.
A pop of color is always a good thing this season, and Halogen’s linen tank is a no-brainer addition to your wardrobe. Wear it with a skirt, shorts or pants while visiting Sao Paolo, Brazil, and still look in with the crowd.
Wander the streets of India in Stem’s Linen Track Pants. They’re fresh, cool and delightfully chic. The best part is they won’t weigh down your luggage and will keep you comfortable in the heat.
In The Navy
Show of your legs as you breeze into Florida’s seaside cities. While black will always be in, why not choose a pair of shorts in another classic color, like navy? Vince’s Cuff Linen shorts are best for a casual look when worn with cute sandals but can also be dressed up for night with a pair of wedges.

Tune into the Tunic
The nice thing about tunics is that they’re versatile and can be worn outside or tucked into your bottoms. Simplicity with edge, Tommy Bahama’s indigo sleeveless tunic is definitely on our wishlist. Stride along Paris’ Champ Elysees without a sweat on this delicate piece, finished off with a skirt or white Capri pants.
We all know dark colors attract the heat, but Eileen Fisher’s Organic Linen Tank wicks it away. The great part about this top: it’s available in a broad range of sizing. The loose, flowy fit offers coolness is perfect when paired with jeans and sneakers while navigating through the colorful streets of Central America.
Ripe for Stripes
Go aboard the nautical-inspired trend with Hinge’s Stripe Tank Dress. Oh-so pretty and comfortable we love A-line skirts to match every body type. Our tip? Wear it with sandals and head on to your Caribbean cruise with this lovely one piece.
