The history of the skinny jean is a long one.
Worn by everyone from punk band members to it-girls, skinny jeans have been in and out of our wardrobes for decades.
But have they had their day?
Linen is the new girl on the scene and has come back with a bang this summer due to its lightweight feel and effortless look.
Made popular through TikTok fashion icons like Matilda Djerf, linen is due to take over.
Here’s how to incorporate the latest trend into your look.
Refresh your formal wardrobe with linen tailoring
Formal dressing can be hard, especially if the ‘jeans and a t-shirt’ combo is your go-to.
With many formal environments like workplaces bringing in ‘smart casual’ dress codes, the lines between formal and informal have been blurred.
The key is to put your own spin on what a formal look means to you.
Linen tailoring is the perfect way to incorporate informal pieces into more formal settings. By pairing a linen trouser suit with a t-shirt and flats, you’re guaranteed to be comfortable without feeling or looking out of place.
Linen can be informal too
Being such a lightweight fabric, linen clothing often comes in loose, wide-leg designs for comfort and practicality - making it the perfect choice for day-to-day outfits.
Straight-leg linen trousers and a simple tank has taken over as the uniform of the season. Available in different colours and easy to switch up, this look is fail-safe.
The Frosty Pants from YAS are a She Selected favourite. The muted tone means you can take them through to autumn and pair them with practically every colour.
Linen as occasionwear? Absolutely!
Occasion dressing can be stressful. Whether it’s a christening, wedding or graduation, it’s hard to know what vibe everyone is going for.
Here’s where linen comes in.
A simple, delicate piece that can be tweaked for every event is the perfect staple that will last from season to season.
The Jeanne Slip from Sisterhood is the perfect dress for an occasion. Simple and floaty, but elegant and chic, this dress is super easy to accessorise and can even be worn with a leather jacket and heels in the winter.
Don’t forget your accessories
Linen bags are the perfect way to add texture to an outfit. While seeming casual, linen can be used to elevate simple outfits to one that looks a lot more thought out.
Cross-body linen bags are not only practical but also perfect for every occasion. From dog walking to city trips, you’re always covered with a linen bag.
Headbands are back. Yep, you read that right. Chunky linen hair accessories, à la Blair Waldorf, can keep your hair out of your face in a chic way.
