Summer In White

Whether you like it or not, linen is always part of the summer forecast!

As the summer is approaching its end I decided its time to share with you a look with one of my favourite summer fabrics – linen! 


Linen is  truly irreplaceable in summer, when travelling or in hot and humid climate!

The main benefit of wearing linen clothes is the coolness they provide. Thanks to the weave and linen fiber specifics linen fabric allows more airflow and it’s structure means it stays away from your skin allowing better airflow over your body. It is claimed, that heat conductivity of linen is five times higher than wool and eighteen times higher than silk. This means having linen clothes in your summer wardrobe is not only an idea – it’s a decision that will make you feel comfortable, confident, easy and pretty, too!


I went for a gold & white combination for my outfit as white is one of my absolute favourite colors! I love wearing white in the summer months mainly as it represents purity, innocence, and light, and is the symbolic opposite of darkness.

If you have seen my previous looks you will know that gold is always part of my outfits! I wear mainly gold accessories and I love metalic handbags as well.

In addition, linen is mainly worn in white, however, there are more and more linen colors coming out every summer! So if you are not a fan of white, there are lots of other colors you can choose from for your linen look.


My look was inspired by one of my favourite UK brands – Maquien. More specifically, I was inspired by their Vita waistcoat. It is very stylish and elegant and its lenght makes you look slimmer and taller.

I am a fan of charleston trousers, so I decided to combine the waistcoat with a pair of linen trousers and white pointy shoes for ultimate elegant linen look. It is perfect for a day in the office or a dinner date.

I have combined it with a top in gold and a clutch in white and gold to bring some accent to the white look.


Maquien make a small range for Summer, and they are garments which fit any wardrobe, in beautiful pure linen, in natural or white.  The long pointed front Vita waistcoat is a very versatile garment, for going to the beach, out for a meal, or just to wear over your swimwear.  In white, it is trimmed with front inside facings in a natural colour, and available in natural, it has white trimmings.  It always keeps your look fresh and stylish.  In the Maquien sale at present £99 down to £79.
