Going the linen way

fashion and trends Updated: Jun 22, 2012 01:04 IST

Highlight Story

1 Linen for women: You can go for dresses as well as tops in linen as these are not only comfortable but look stylish as well. Linen jumpsuits, trousers with matching linen shirts, or even a straight-cut long dress with a sleek belt is a wise choice.

2 Linen for men: For a formal look, team up linen trousers with matching linen shirts. For a casual look, you can pair linen trousers in jodhpuri style with a comfortable polo neck T-shirt .

For the board room look, go for nice linen suits in deep brown, off white or grey colour and make a fashion statement.

3 Colours to go for: Light colours such as white, beige and pastels work best during the day, while for evening, dark colours such as black, navy blue and dark brown are the best bet.

4 Taking care of linen: Do not leave your linen to dry under the sun for a long time as it can cause the fabric to lose its softness. Make sure you iron linen fabrics while they are still damp. Store linen clothes in a cool and dry place.
