One of the best parts about moving into the warmer weather is how colorful spring and summer attire becomes. Trends are all about bright colors, prints and patterns. Don’t you Fashionistos just hate when you have to get all dressed up for work and the normal cotton button-downs have you suffocating in the heat? Well, here is the perfect solution, linen!

Whether it’s a sweater, suit, button-down or shorts, you cannot go wrong with linen. As the summer approaches and the heat turns up, you do not want to be roasting in that suit on your way to work. The linen material allows your body to breathe and has a light, airy feeling.

This Fashionisto wears this linen perfectly. He is wearing an Island Company blue and white striped linen button-down. He pairs this with a pair of J.Crew khaki shorts and accessorizes with Ray-Ban wayfarers. This look is very casual but classy. You can wear this look to class or just a regular day hanging out. The best part about this linen button-down is that you can dress it up or dress it down. You can leave it un-tucked with a pair of shorts or you can tuck it in with a pair of pants and a belt. This look is so versatile and you cannot go wrong.

How To: Got a light button-down? Perfect! Throw on some of your most comfortable shorts to recreate the look. If not, check out the Island Company. They have some amazing options for everyone!
