Perfect Pairings: Linen

For this month's edition, I decided to focus on a seasonally-appropriate fabric.  There is an unmistakable ease with linen that reads relaxed and effortless.  When looking for a lightweight piece in this textile, I prefer to choose one that is a blend with either cotton or silk, which produces a softer finish and doesn't wrinkle as quickly. I've created 2 outfits below featuring transitional pieces that will work both now & later - just swap out the jeans for shorts and the sweater for a sleeveless blouse!  (Care tip: the best way I've found to remove wrinkles from linen is to place a damp cotton cloth on top of the garment and then iron over the cotton piece with your iron on the high heat/steam setting.)
