While sweatpants and leggings have been basic staples in my at-home wardrobe, I've been interested in finding some alternative clothing options to wear that are just as comfortable but feel a bit more pulled-together. That's when I noticed the rise of linen clothing—an anti-loungewear trend I've been seeing more and more among the fashion set. The fabric is light and breathable, which is perfect for moving into hotter summer days, and I personally can't wait to start mixing in some of the airy pieces into my wardrobe.
While linen blazers have been a summer staple for me in the past, this summer, I'll be trying out other takes on linen with everything from button-down tops to high-waisted shorts to maxi skirts catching my eye. Showcasing just how stylish the trend is, see how her and other fashion people are wearing it and get some inspiration for the best linen clothing pieces to add to your wardrobe.

A Miniskirt With a Tank Top
While I typically stick to neutrals, I've been adding more fun pops of color into my wardrobe recently, so this outfit with a pastel miniskirt caught my eye. Worn with a strappy tank top, this is such a cool and easy outfit to wear right now.
I'm suddenly very into one-shoulder tops.
This pastel hue just makes me happy.
