THE STYLIST DIARIES | Linen safari with Jules
THE CRUSH ON LINEN CONTINUES TO BE STRONG FOR SPRING
With an easily traceable supply chain, linen is one of the most sustainable fabrics to buy. The coolest fashion trend of 2019 is breathable, lightweight and LUXE. Beautifully tailored suits, relaxed shirting and short suits are effortless options for many occasions from casual resort to evenings in our warm climate.
Try tonal colours – white on white, natural & rust tones worn together to elongate your figure and look effortless. Accentuate and add personality with a pop of colour or animal print.

Accessories – linen is a minimalist trend so keep accessories simple. Look for mules or strappy sandals for casual looks and a delicate strap heel for more formal occasions. Use a belt to cinch in the waist and give shape. A wide brim straw hat will complete a beautiful day time ensemble.

This season’s twist – Look out for strong design details – 70’s tailoring, belts, pockets, top stitching and cuff details. A pant or short suit is an elevated way to wear linen this season. Try a sleeveless, belted jacket for a polished look. Wear casual linen shorts with a matching jacket for smart casual or resort wear.
