These 30 Linen Summer Dresses Will Actually Keep You Cool in a Heatwave

Elinor Block

Looking put together in a heatwave is one of the trickiest styling obstacles, however the one thing that is always cool (in the literal and aesthetic sense) is a linen dress—and I've found 30 that I'm sure tick off every summer dress box.

A word on how to style, though: My personal preference is to take tips from the likes of super-polished Eni, who always hits the right note with her styling. Don't opt for anything overly fussy in terms of accessories and opt for barely-there sandals (if they match the colour of your dress then even better). While there are the more expensive options, I've also included some of my favourites from the high street.

Just remember to shop for pieces you love and know you'll wear. Keep going for the edit.
