A white linen short sleeve shirt is the key to looking chic and feeling cool all summer. The lightweight linen fabric wicks moisture away from your body, making it ideal for travel or hot climates. The breezy short-sleeve shirts are versatile and pair well with pants, skirts, or jeans.
Expert stylist and TFG reader Chelsea Volpe says that the linen tops are “so comfortable, look crisp and fresh, and make a great option for warm-weather occasions.” The shirts also work as a cover-up when paired with a camisole or tank. They’re also the perfect choice for a picnic or a day lounging at the beach with an iced hibiscus tea and a stack of books.
If you’re looking for a white linen shirt that goes with everything, the Linen Relaxed Shirt from Everlane is an editor and TFG fave. This lightweight linen shirt comes in a range of colors, from classic black and white to tropical Brazilian Sand, and pairs perfectly with the brand’s coordinating pants and sandals for a monochromatic look that’s effortlessly chic.
