29 Lovely Ways With Linen

Slip into summer mode with these stylish and breathable linen pieces.

There is no fabric we associate more closely with the summer months than linen. Breathable and chic, it somehow looks better with a little inevitable crumple – and never more so than when thrown over a swimsuit for light lunch at a beach café (insert wistful sight here). It is equally lovely thrown over al fresco tables; gathered at windows as curtains; and even to do the washing up with. Should anyone need further persuasion, it is not only stylish but practical too, being strong, biodegradable, and naturally moth-resistant, However you use yours, these are some of the loveliest linens there are.
