Linen clothing is perfect for summer and warm weather travel. Stock up on this vacation staple with this season’s ten best pieces!
10 Summer-Inspired Linen Clothing Styles
Table Of Contents
Linen regulates temperature nicely, making it cool to the touch. At first, it may seem dry and rough, but after a few more washes, linen clothing turns softer and smoother.
We love this fabric because it’s super comfortable in the heat. Unlike cotton, linen doesn’t stick to your skin even when you sweat and allows better air flow which cools your body down. This is great news if you’re traveling somewhere hot this summer: you won’t feel clammy in your clothing, just comfortable.

If you think this fabric is cool (which we think it is), here’s a list of chic, comfortable linen clothing pieces you can add to your travel wardrobe in time for your summer vacay:

The nice thing about tunics is that they’re versatile and can be worn outside or tucked into your bottoms.
Chico’s No-Iron Linen Tunic | Sizes XS-XL
If your travels take you to a sunny seaside destination, bring along a tunic in either chambray, flirty coral stripes or a pretty turquoise hue (or all three for my fellow shopaholics!) For a classic look, opt for a crisp and clean white button up.

We love a classic shirtdress here at TFG. A linen one with summer perfect stripes will take you through the day in ease. Breathable and basic, you can easily dress them up or down to your liking. They also make great swim cover ups!

I wore lots of linen in Italy this summer and it was perfect for the HOT weather. Thanks for the tips!
Nice Linen clothing styles for summer season. I mostly love to wear tunics during the summer season. Because tunics are lightweight, beautiful and one can look stylish and also feel comfortable when wearing it.
I am loving the trend of linen clothing. It is especially great for travel because it is so lightweight. Thanks for sharing!
Thanks Lauren! Glad you think so too 🙂
I love linen, it truly is breathable in hot hot weather. Woven linen can wrinkle badly – I carry a tiny spritzer bottle for my woven items. Fill with water, hang the clothing on a hanger, spritz well, and just hang overnight to dry. Most items are wrinkle-free by morning! (Sometimes you need to spritz and straighten out a bit.) I haven’t ironed in years!
That’s an awesome tip! Thanks Phebe 🙂
Even better than the pants and number three are ones made by a brand called dynamite
Cool, will check them out! Thanks for the tip!
