How the heck did I survive five straight days of 90 degree weather in N.Y.C.? Oh that’s right, linen.
I used to hate linen because it’s such a pain to iron and then I tried sweating out the summer heat in jean shorts. Hmm, swamp ass or a few wrinkles? I’ll take the wrinkles! And with plenty more blazing hot days on the horizon, I would suggest you invest in some linen, too. It’s super lightweight so you won’t feel like your clothing is smothering you, but not see-through like a lot of other featherweight fabrics. Even better, designers like Kate Spade, Marc Jacobs and Theory are all making cute linen dresses, shorts and tops for summer, you’ll have no problem finding cute pieces that will also keep you cool.
