Linen is the smart choice for summer styling thanks to its breathable and lightweight fabrication. What’s more, the natural crease of the composition adds to the laid-back feeling that we’re all searching for through the summer months. As you can see from some of our favourite fashion people, the LMD (linen minidress) is undemanding. For this piece, the simpler the styling, the better; just a pair of sandals and a simple handbag will do.
