Colour it well

A black linen dress for ladies and a suit for gentlemen are classic choices. Add some colour to it and it will become a chic choice for any summer outing. When talking about colours, light colour linens are really pleasing to the eye. Think baby pink, butter yellow, pearl grey, candy pink or peacock blue! Fashion designer, Rohit Bal, not only swears by this fabric’s fashion quotient but also makes colours such as pale peachy look so perfectly elegant.

Dress it up!

A plain linen suit requires some interesting pattern to add some shine to it. You can either go for interesting prints or jazz it up with a cool tie or shirt. It will definitely add to your fashion quotient. A linen shirt or dress can look really elegant with a simple play of Swarovski over it. Even coloured stones or light embellishments can jazz up your party outfit. Pretty embroideries on the collar or neckline can look dressy as well.

Art of accessorising

To add a dash of colour or style to your linen suits or coats, men can go for a nice scarf or printed pocket square. To add elegance and spunk to your linen dress, ladies can use a leather belt over a linen shift dress. Depending on the colour of your dress, pick on warm corals or soothing neutrals to stay graceful. A trendy watch, fashionable heels and sunglasses are a must-have for a comfortable day out in the sun.

A touch of confidence

Carrying off the gentle creases and folds requires you to be confident and self-assured, as linen wrinkles more than any other fabric. Saif Ali Khan wore a linen kurta on the day he went to register his marriage. He certainly made the fabric look really comfortable, stylish and royal.

 

When you pick the right colour of linen for the right occasion, half your job is done. All you need to do it is ooze out confidence and match the perfect accessories for a well turned out look!
