Summer can be a difficult time for choosing clothes, you may want to pull out all the short dresses you have but find that even these are too hot to wear or not smart enough if you have any work events or evenings out. This is why we’ve compiled the best linen outfit ideas for hot weather as linen is loose and keeps you cool and chic so you can enjoy the sunshine without breaking a sweat.

The simple shirt

Every summer wardrobe should have a linen staple t-shirt that can be paired with jeans on colder days, shorts on the hottest and a skirt if you want to feel a little more dressed up. Getting one in neutral colours also means it will work with just about anything meaning you can mix and match freely with the wardrobe you already have and makes it one part of the best linen outfit ideas for hot weather.
