Pairing them is so easy as they work with almost anything, there’s so many ways to wear them, paired with all from buttoned-up shirts to t-shirts or even casual vests.

It shows that anyone can pull these pants off; with sandals, heels, or whatever else you have in mind. For some additional inspiration, try working with neutral pants as they’ll give you more choice in your shoe and shirt selections. Let your creativity take the lead this summer.

Maxi Skirts: Gone are the times when long skirts were only for the vertically gifted. Now, anyone can pull off a maxi skirt, and our celebrities cannot help but show us countless ways to rock this look. How about adding some linen to this look? Not only is the material classy, but it comes in a range of hues to give you more wiggle room (get it?) in your pairing. All you need is a vest (casual even) and a skirt to complete the look. Depending on the cut of your skirt (slit or not) and its length, you can choose to wear heels or sandals, or even nothing when working with a long skirt. Jewellery is optional as the whole look comes off as breezy as the fabric.

Linen Dresses: Dresses are a great way to cool off whilst looking hot as the temperatures begin soaring, and the air conditioning returns.

Not only does this radiate heat, but it also makes you look airy, radiant, and light. LinenfoxClothes offers a range of white linen dresses that are chic for every age. Their classic look makes them ideal for almost any occasion you will grace in the summer.
