Bored?! That was once. Linen, the trending material of summer, is suitable for much more than casual stand-up styles. We have the three coolest style combos for you that will definitely upgrade your daily outfit.

It doesn’t matter if it’s wide leg pants, a casual blouse or a blazer, we only have one favorite material in summer: linen. The fabric creates a real holiday feeling as soon as you put it on and is also completely weightless on the skin. What else do you want? Some style options maybe.

Because although linen is an absolute classic, the material made from linen fibers always conveys a slightly conservative image. But the times when anyone could think of linen pants as old-fashioned and “eco” are over! Here are three great ways you probably haven’t matched bedding before.

1. Linen + sneakers for a cool touch

The style variant with sneakers is perfect to break with the classic style of linen. Linen pants, dress or suit and sneakers, does that go together? Yes, and how! Combined, the two components will become one of the most comfortable and casual fashion trends of summer 2022. The sneakers offer classic and sometimes very elegant linen designs, a companion to casual style, so the look also works outside of a beach vacation or a summer wedding and is well suited for everyday wear. A cool style that strikes the perfect balance between casual and chic!

2. Linen suit + top bra

Women of fashion no longer just wear sports bras and bra tops or hide under thick woolen sweaters. Paired with a blazer, lingerie is a spring must-have, and it perfectly complements our linens! Since bra tops are usually quite sporty looking, they add an exciting twist to plain-colored classics made from natural fibers like linen. Seductive, fresh and super elegant: we can’t decide which components of this style convince us the most. One thing is for sure though: the far and near game makes for a smart eye-catcher. Also great: if you combine the look with statement accessories like a chunky necklace and a large bag!

3. Linen pants + oversize shirt and T-shirt

Dads are simply the best, and they continue to provide us with great style inspiration. The “dad style” also works well with fine linen and ensures hassle-free summer vibes. Our favorite combination: wide-legged linen pants, fitted white t-shirt or tank top, then an oversized shirt on top. This is practical and paired with some chunky sandals (yes, you can totally storm Dad’s wardrobe) will get us through spring and summer in style. If you don’t want to go that far, you can combine pants, t-shirt and shirt with mini heels and complete the look without complications with a small or especially feminine bag.
