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

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.

A linen tank top is a total summer essential, working well with a variety of looks and offered in a wide range of cute styles.  A white shirt tank adds a preppy feel to any daytime ensemble while tank brings a dramatic cut to an otherwise casual garment.


Use packing cubes to help you organize and even compress your belongings to maximize your space.

Quince 100% European Linen Pants | Sizes XS-XL


Ranging from delicate stripes, and a chic tie waist to a stylishly casual wide leg pant, a pair of linen pants is an easy summer essential for your travels. The best part is they won’t weigh down your luggage and will keep you comfortable in the heat.




Bag | Top | Shorts | Sandals


Navy Shorts


While black will always be in, why not choose a pair of shorts in another classic color, like navy? Pleasing both minimalists and color enthusiasts alike, these navy shorts are an instant summer staple.




Faherty Arlie Day Short | Sizes XXS-XXL


There is an endless list of styles to choose from when it comes to navy shorts. You could choose a trendy tie waist pair or go more classic with a classic drawstring. Looking to play it up a bit? Opt for a pair with a funky print, like the ones above!




Hat | Earrings | Top | Shorts | Sandals




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.




Earrings | Sunglasses | Flats | Shirtdress | Sunscreen | Lip Tint


Linen Plus


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!
