With the summer heat increasing in intensity ever year, it's no wonder more and more people are looking for ways to stay cool and stylish beyond a pair of tank top and denim shorts. Our tip? Go for linen all the way. Breathable and airy, the light fabric is arguably everyone's anti-sweat best friend this season. To help you with your summer wardrobe search, we rounded up five online stores that predominantly make use of linen to keep you fresh and fashion-ready!
A favorite when it comes linenwear, Araw provides their customers with everything from basic pieces, to asymmetrical tops and sophisticated jumpsuits, to fresh pastel dresses, and more! They even have a swimwear collection. Try out their sapin dresses for a playful and vibrant summer aesthetic.
2. Studio 17
Founded by sisters Allyssa Balboa, Aira Balboa, and Alleli Balboa, Studio 17's basic pieces are all made from 100% linen. They're also proudly local and sustainable. Rendered in subdued summer colors with their signature, airy cropped style, the brand holds this season's must-haves, especially if you're just starting to build a wardrobe that's apt for the sweltering heat. They even have a cool and crisp jumpsuit that will have you nailing the utilitarian trend!
Anika's timeless aesthetic offers easy, wearable basics with an exciting and unexpected spin that makes their designs unique. You'll definitely love the subtle twists they incorporate on classic pieces, whether it's a two-toned dress with adjustable straps, or a frock that you can wear both ways like their ruffled Emilia dress.
New to the linen game, Muna is a promising venture by Zam Gammad and Zaila Macadangdang. Launched just April 18 this year, their main thrust is to spread inclusivity and body positivity, not just through the clothes they sell but in the way they market and package their products as well. All the brand's tops, dresses, and cover-ups promise a size-chart that meets and flatters every body type. Why not shop their Alon dress for those fresh and flirty mornings outdoors?
For bright and vibrant colors, check out Undo's collaboration with Seek The Uniq, most notable of which are their rami linen blazers that you can perfectly pair with a wide range of colored trousers. Who says you can't wear suits for the summer?
