How to Wear It: Living in Linen

As the weather gets warmer, the ever-versatile linen bottoms come out.

In this post I’ll show you some great ways to wear your favorite pieces from Athleta’s linen collection. Whether you’re going for a casual look, or something a little more dressy, there’s something here for you.

Dress It Up

Look 1 Alex
Don’t be afraid to dress up your linen. Pairing the pants with a nice blouse and a clutch can easily make your look more dressed up. I threw on a denim shirt to keep a good balance between the casual feel of the Stripe Linen Pant and the dressier elements.

Cute and Comfy

Look 2
Pairing strappy heels with the Linen Bermuda shorts is the way to go. This look is the perfect way to get cute and comfy all in one!

Mix in Print

Look 3
The Linen Jogger Pants are amazing but can be a bit harder to style outside your typical tee and sandals. Pairing these pants with boots is a bit more unexpected but totally works! Mixing in print and topping it off with a pop of color really gives you a whole new way to wear these guys.

Easy Goin’

Look 4
For an easy going outfit, pair the Striped Linen Shorts with an oversized button up and a hat!

Try the Half-Tuck

Look 5
When pairing a button up blouse with the Linen Skirt, give it a little half tuck for a more chic looking outfit. Opt out of a blouse for a tee to keep it more casual.

I love the look of Athleta’s gear, and yet I’m always so sad to see the cool linen and wool items that Athleta makes: I experience contact rashes from both. Just a few minutes in either fabric has me covered in hives.
I’m glad Athleta makes so many great bottoms and tops, and usually I can find ample styles I love in fabrics I can wear. Still, so bummed to have a great look unavailable!
