Last summer, casual matching linen separates were the ideal loungewear for our pandemic lives. The leisurely and loose resort-inspired silhouettes felt as luxe working from home as they did out for a walk—they also made for a great bathing suit cover-up option. This season, however, the humble linen set has stepped up its game. The casual, lightweight material isn’t just offered in simple button-front shirt-and-short combinations, but for real, leaving the house options too. And there’s a coordinating set for almost every occasion.
There are summer suits made up of linen blazers and Bermuda shorts—ideal for returning to the office. For vacations and nights out dancing, consider cut-out blouses or backless halter tops with trousers to match. Puff sleeve blouses have met their match with midi skirts. And crop tops are getting paired up with high-waisted shorts in the same linen hue.
All these make deciding on an outfit this summer an effortless task. Plus, a coordinated set of linen separates will undoubtedly have you keeping cool while looking chic. What’s not to love?
