Linen, linen and more linen. Summer has spoken, and the natural fabric is taking over our wardrobes in the form of dresses, trousers, shirts, shorts and skirts. And today, we want to shout about linen skirts. With warm days and muggy nights, staying cool is essential. Sure, a hand fan will be the chicest accessory worth investing in this season, but forming your everyday uniform with linen pieces can make for a less sweaty experience. Choosing what to wear is stressful enough as it is, right? There are so many skirt trends this season, including but not limited to bold florals, checks, pelmets and tiered hemlines. But it doesn’t matter which print, detail or style you look to as long as it’s made of linen (or a linen blend if you want a less crease-prone alternative).

Breathable, lightweight and effortlessly chic whether it’s a mini, midi or maxi, the best linen skirts can be found on the high street at the likes of Zara, & Other Stories and Reformation. Keep scrolling to see all the linen skirts that’ll serve you all summer, and wear them with everything from matching linen shirts to vest tops and camis.
