Given the fact that it's August, it seems appropriate that the coming days are set to be sweltering. Of course, whether this is a blessing or a curse is entirely down to personal preference. Whatever yours is, you'll probably still want to be comfortable in the heat. While it would be wonderful to just don a bikini - or nothing whatsoever - and be done with it, we recommend linen if you're in need of something more substantial. Strong, absorbent and faster to dry than cotton, linen is how sensible people do hot weather dressing. Gone are the days when linen pieces were a strictly greige affair, but the creasing is definitely still a thing. We're sure you'll make it work regardless.
