Feeling Hot AF? These Linen Outfits Might Do The Trick

Linen is the perfect sweat-wicking, heat-absorbing fabric to keep us cool as the weatherman expects the mercury level and humidity to go up till the end of the month.

The good thing about being stuck indoors during this circuit-breaker is that we get to escape the sweltering heat outside. According to the weatherman, warm and humid weather is expected to continue in the second half of May. While many of us have traded out our daily togs for something more WFH-friendly, a heat-absorbent fabric to consider and add to your wardrobe would be linen. With a long 36,000-year history, linen has sealed its status as the ultimate summer-proof fabric – a.k.a what we need here in +65. But besides the fabric’s regular iterations in the form of tropical camp shirts and pegleg trousers, the options this season is more fun and fashion-forward. Above, the many ways to incorporate this fabric into your wardrobe.
