Wearing a suit in summer isn’t even possible? Are you kidding me? Are you serious when you say that! Linen suits are currently making a comeback and are very popular. And for many good reasons. The suits are available in many models and colors. They can be combined with different shoes, bags and jewelry and most importantly they keep you cool on warm days. So, if you love wearing a suit, you don’t have to part with your summer two-piece at all. But this should be made of linen.

Why are linen suits perfect for summer?
Linen is a remarkable natural fiber made from the flax plant, more specifically its stalks. The fabric therefore has the great property of letting the air through as much as possible. Clothing made of linen is therefore very popular in summer. This is not only breathable, but also anti-allergenic and anti-bacterial. In addition, linen hardly pills and feels very comfortable on the skin. You don’t sweat so easily and the moisture doesn’t stay in the fabric for long, but evaporates after a few minutes. And although natural fibers crease quite easily and a lot, this of all things gives the linen garments a special, unmistakable charm.

What is the best way to care for linen suits?
Although linen is considered to be relatively easy to care for, you should pay attention to a few things. Never wash your linen suits or any other clothes made of this fabric in a water temperature higher than 40 degrees. The gentle cycle with approx. 600-800 revolutions is optimal. Do not overload the washing machine. This creates too much friction between the clothes and the linen can be a bit strained. It is best to only use liquid detergent that is mild and gentle. Very important: Linen should never be put in the tumble dryer!
Always dry linen suits directly with the hanger in the fresh air. However, it is better to avoid strong and direct sunlight. Because otherwise dyed linen could fade and turn whiter. And what about ironing? Even if linen looks so charming with a few creases, it would be optimal to iron this fabric after washing and drying it. It is therefore better to leave your linen suit a little damper and iron it inside out at medium heat. If you want a casual look right away and don’t have a problem with a few creases on the fabric, you can of course also do it without ironing.
Short trousers and jackets with short sleeves in particular hardly need to be ironed
How is a linen suit worn?
You can really let off steam with a linen suit. Because almost anything is possible. Nevertheless, you should be careful that the look doesn’t come across as too “eco” or rather shabby. It is therefore advisable to combine linen suits with high-quality shoes and accessories. Forget worn-out sandals or the wooden jewelery from the past. To look trendy and fresh, it would be much more appropriate to pair linen with classy bracelets, earrings or necklaces in gold, silver or brass. Elegant sandals or low shoes round off the linen suit very harmoniously. Fine designer bags and sunglasses also cut a fine figure here and are ideal, fashionable companions.
