Summer 2021 style is about to be simplified with these short-sleeved, pared-back linen shirts.
When it comes to sunny-season fabrics, none come close to the easy-breezy nature of linen. Come rain or shine, it’s a summer perennial that’s perfect for keeping cool – stylistically and temperature-wise.
Forget about long sleeves too; when the sun decides to put – and hopefully keep – her hat on for this summer, fashion’s biggest love-in with linen comes in the form of simple yet oh-so-stylish short-sleeved shirts, most specifically in neutral palettes of earthy hues.
The best part is that these breezy blouses are as simple as 1,2,3 to style; simply wear with your favourite slip skirt, your go-to denim shorts, or just throw on over a bikini before an afternoon lounging by the lido. These are a few of our favourites to buy now.
