STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Livin' in Linen

When picking out an outfit, you usually ask yourself one question: do I want to look cute or do I want to be comfortable? Well thanks to the latest trend featured in New York Fashion Week 2016, you don’t have to choose. Channel your inner beach bum (and still look cute) while wearing something linen. Celebrities from Kiera Knightley to Brad Pitt have been spotted in this casual-chic look, and designers and Fashionistas around the world have caught on to the trend.

In today’s fashion world, it is no longer all about glamour and perfection, it is about incorporating comfort into your style. Seriously, where’s the fun in wearing super tight pants that make you unable to breathe, or shoes that force you to sit all night because it hurts too much to walk? Linen is a fabric that can be made into many different designs and cuts, and is an effortless way to look put together. Whether you wear a pair of linen pants with a tank or crop top, or a linen shirt tucked in to a pair of high-waisted trousers, you’ll be ready to go anywhere.

This Fashionista chose to wear not one, but TWO linen pieces to create her effortlessly stylish look. She paired striped linen pants with a white loose-fitting linen shirt to create what might be the most comfortable outfit ever. Next, she added a pair of lace-up sandals to complete her beach-themed look, and chose a few accessories like a long layered necklace and Marc Jacobs watch.
