Relaxed summer style: 5 of the best linen pieces

Linen is a great sustainable fashion choice for summer - not only is it a sustainable fabric to grow and process - it's a fabric that lasts; wearing better over time and if you invest well, will last year after year.

Opt for classic shapes that you can mix and match with your current wardrobe pieces - choose from neutral colours or opt for one of this season's statement hues in deep indigo, saffron yellow or warm rust red. Here are 5 pieces we'll be teaming with our YUNION T tees this summer...

linen checked skirt

Hitting a trio of trends - this linen, button through, gingham skirt would look perfect paired with our warm navy tees and a pair of Castaner espadrilles.

Button through linen checked skirt, £29, Mango

linen jumpsuit

This Lapis Blue linen jumpsuit, paired with our classic round neck tee is a little bit nautical, definitely comfortable and summer in an outfit. Team with tan leather accessories and a raffia basket to complete the look.

Linen jumpsuit, £130, Toast

A statement linen trouser is a great workwear option when the mercury is high. Pair with a leather mule and a simple short-sleeve tee for a smart, yet comfortable high-summer look.

Red Linen Cropped Trousers, £99, Whistles

If you're in holiday mode, the cotton/linen blend of these paperbag waist shorts from Boden make them perfect for packing as they will crease less. Available in a range of colours and leg-lengths - tuck in our deep scoop neck tee for an instant waist, the higher waist also elongates legs, win-win.

Linen blend paperbag shorts, £50, Boden

linen beige trench coat

When it comes to early summer, outerwear can be tricky - cold enough first thing to need another layer, always the chance of a shower but nothing too heavy... A classic belted trench in a linen blend is the perfect 'trans-season' addition to your spring wardrobe to get you through those iffy weather months.
