Looking for some weather-appropriate outfit inspo? These are the linen staples to add to your shopping list for compromise-free style… 

Linen is extremely underrated – it’s cooling, it’s soft, and it’s comfortable. However, it has been notorious in the past for not having the greatest range of options for new-season style that ticks every box, which is why we’re so glad that more of our high street favourites are seeing its potential just in time for the summer season.

The latest White Stuff edit at John Lewis is packed with pieces that marry classic silhouettes with the latest trends for wardrobe items you’ll actually want to keep.

Not only that, it’s also one of the most environmentally-friendly fibres to produce as it’s made from flax - when grown in rainy conditions in rich soil (as found in northern Europe, where White Stuff sources its flax), it requires no pesticides, herbicides, fertilisers or artificial irrigation, doesn’t produce any waste and also retains carbon in the soil.

With that in mind, here are some of our sustainable must-buys from the new collection… 

  • 1. The staple t-shirt
