Linen: how to look stylish whilst keeping cool

Style inspiration brought to you by resident stylist
Julie Dickson

WE LOVE LINEN. FACT. Not only is it a sustainable natural fabric but it looks great and keeps us cool through the warm Summer months. Damart have created a capsule linen collection that will take you stylishly through the season. Each piece combines the qualities of our “linen rich” blended fabric ( flax gives it that touch of softness) with understated tailoring for easy elegance. Combined with great colours and soft prints this is a collection you will cherish all Summer long.

The easy to wear button through skirt comes in 2 great colours- zingy citrus lemon for Summer and this soft charcoal stripe, vertical stripes always flattering, for now. It’s got pockets (always a bonus!) and side elastication for comfort. Wear later with a vest top and sandals or wear now with a soft textured sweater and espadrilles.

This one stop dress is a dream to wear and makes getting up in the morning so easy. We love this new ‘slim shift’ shape as it’s loose enough to hide any lumps and bumps but fitted enough to still hint at your shape underneath. Remember overly baggy clothes will always make you look bigger than you are. This dress is versatile enough to dress up with heels, a hat and tailored jacket for a very special occasion or down with wedges and a Summer trilby for weekend vibes.

Linen skirt and dress perfect for summer

The classic ‘boyfriend’ shirt comes in 3 great colours and it’s oversize shape means it can be worn over a cami and jeans as a cool top layer or buttoned up with jeans and pumps for a stylish weekend look. Also can be worn as a summertime cover up …. the zingy citrus colours look great with a tan!

Cut to flatter and made to last these drawstring linen trousers are far from basic. Team with strappy flat sandals and a pretty loose fit top (always half- tuck the front to show a hint of waist…makes you look slimmer!) or dress up with a silky shirt, a stack of gold necklaces and heels for a touch of night time glamour.

Get dressed in seconds with our linen “popover” shirt – Damart’s style solution for busy days. With all the tailored benefits of a smart shirt (minus half the buttons,) the “popover” looks glam with Aztec print silky trousers, block heels and bold beads but is versatile enough to sneak into your weekend wardrobe with jeans and pumps. Remember if you are top heavy a ‘v’ neck will elongates the chest area… avoid fussy detail around the bust and fabrics that are too clingy.

  1. Help!!! I have just spent quite a long time going through every category, trying to find the beige spotted top, with slit neckline, frilly short sleeves, as pictured, as the middle model on your page re Julie Dickson.
