Have you considered adding a linen blazer to your Summer capsule wardrobe? If not it’s worth giving it some thought because they are a multi tasking wardrobe staple. If you don’t like the creasing, look for one that is lined or is a blend of perhaps linen and silk. But don’t ignore them because they add a thin layer – great for covering arms without overheating you. Plus they come in all the colours of the rainbow! (Not sure what is best for your colouring?

Choose a neutral camel or stone version and it will go with everything else in your wardrobe and of course navy is a timeless choice too.
But if you want to opt for a neutral outfit, add a pop of colour with the blazer. Choose a pretty pastel or opt for something bold like the raspberry pink version below.
As far as shapes are concerned, as well as a classic blazer shape, this season the longer length double breasted jacket is everywhere. Just avoid a double breasted version if you are busty and look for one of the more fitted options with shaping at the waist.
If you opt for a less fitted blazer, choose slim or fitted pieces on your bottom half, such as a pencil skirt or slim jeans.
Then you have the multiple ways you can style your linen blazer, from casual – great with white jeans – to smart, to make your office wear more Summer appropriate. Or choose one of the new linen suits and dress it down with a casual t-shirt and a pair of trainers.
