Styling Casual Linen Pieces

I’ve never worn ANYTHING linen before!? I swear my mum would persuade me to try and buy linen shorts when I was a teen but back in those days I was all about heavy black jeans and hoodies (even in 30 degree heat). However although I do get worried about the creases and last minute ‘shit, I need to iron this before I leave the house’ panic, I am actually SO into linen this season.

I’ve found a few gorgeous linen pieces on the high street so far this summer, including some blazers, shorts and trousers, and I thought I’d style some new-in stripe linen crop trousers I bought in New Look.

As soon as I saw these trousers in New Look I had to have them! The belt is so cute with the wooden detail, and everyone knows that wide leg linen is super comfy to wear. It makes a change for me to wear lighter clothes too so I think these would make the ideal holiday piece. Since I saw them in store, New Look have also released them in orange, white, green and dark blue! I love the orange ones (they’re more of a rust colour) so I wouldn’t be surprised if they end up in my wardrobe soon…

Summer also calls for bardot tops! At the same time as the crop trousers I bought myself a classic white bardot with wooden buttons, which match so well, don’t you think? I think the frill detail is so cute and these tops are so handy to wear tucked into midi skirts and shorts.

For layering I added my favourite fine knit cardi (which I wore in this outfit post not too long ago) and to this day it’s still my most worn cardi – it goes with literally everything I wear! I wanted to add a bit of black to go with the contrast of my shoes…

And coming onto the shoes, these are also a bargain I picked up in New Look when I was looking for a comfy flat sandal to take me through summer. I pretty much live in heels so it was about time I found an easy slip-on sandal to throw on when I was popping out for a walk or something.

Finally, another summer staple always comes in the form of a woven bag! I literally love this one (yes, also from New Look…) which has a gorge bamboo handle and a leather base. I’ve had so many compliments on it and it really finishes off this look!
