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

·2-min read

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 them, 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 choose 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 this summer and every summer after it. Scroll on to shop the edit just in time for the glorious incoming weather.
