Three Ways to Wear Linen

Oliver Brown linen jacket   There's no better way to stay smart in the summer heat than in perennially stylish linen tailoring. You can relax into this easy-to-wear fabric whatever the event without compromising on style, as our linen suits include the hallmarks of great tailoring - think working cuffs and pick-stitch detailing as standard. However, it does require a little thinking. Here are three ways to wear linen this for a little summer inspiration.   1) Wearing linen at weddings For weddings in sunnier climes or more casual mid-summer nuptials in the UK, linen suits are just the ticket. The general rule is: the more formal the event, the darker your linen suit, so take your cue from the dress code. However, you can't go wrong with a beautifully tailored navy linen suit paired with the crispest of white shirts. Add a touch of colour with a silk tie and pocket square that complements your jacket, and you're all set.   pink silk tie by Oliver Brownnavy linen suit by Oliver Brownsilk handkerchiefs       2) Wearing linen at a casual event At casual summer events, the rules are of course a little more relaxed. A linen suit is the perfect option if you wish to retain a little elegance but feel free to experiment with your favourite colours. A safe option, though, is the neutral stone-coloured suit, worn with a linen shirt and brown suede loafers.   Oliver Brown suede loaferscream linen suitOliver Brown blue linen shirt       3) Wearing linen as separates  For everyday summer wear or informal evenings, a linen jacket is so versatile. When wearing smart cotton jeans or chinos, our un-lined linen jacket is perfect for completing the look over a smart cotton shirt. Why not try the vibrant fuchsia pink for a splash of colour?
