VIDEO: thinking spring, thinking linen

Welcome to Marrakesh. We know that most of us are only dreaming of traveling these days, so we thought we’d share with you some footage from our recent photoshoot, and bring Morocco (and our new spring linen collection) to you.  

This season, breezy linen and linen-rich blends continue to be an important fabric in dresses, sweaters, shorts, and tops and tees. Linen is soft, breathable, and layers beautifully, making it a versatile wardrobe essential whether you’re longing to travel, or staying close to home.

Here are some linen highlights and tips for wearing linen from the new collection:


MAKE A BEELINE FOR A-LINE SHAPES

An easy, elegant shift becomes an everyday essential as the weather heats up. We recommend easy linen dresses with flattering A-line shapes. 

These linen lovelies are comfort, versatile, and ready to fulfill all your wardrobe needs: The Essential Three-Quarter-Sleeve Linen Dress is offered in an array of solids and a fun, intricate mosaic print. The Fringe-Hem A-Line Dress has a frayed border to give its otherwise simple shape a little attitude. The Linen Dropwaist Dress is a more elevated take on a casual T-shirt style knit dress. All of them are ideal blank canvas for accessories, just add your favorite jewelry and a pair of sandals.

PLAY WITH THE PROPORTIONS 

There are so many interesting shapes and silhouettes in this season’s collection. They make it easy to get creative and express yourself with your wardrobe. Play with pairing relaxed and fitted styles, layer long over short — the options are endless. We love this Easy Long Linen Cardigan worn over a pair of Linen Pull-On Shorts. There’s something bohemian about how these linen pieces work together.    

THERE’S A NEW MAXI DRESS IN TOWN

Maxi dresses still reign supreme as cool, versatile fashion pieces for spring and summer. The Linen Button-Front Maxi Dress is new for the season. It features a row of buttons down the front and a refined flounced hem for a little added drama. Wear it loose and flowing or belt it to accentuate your waist.

A LITTLE EMBROIDERY GOES A LONG WAY

Intricate embellishment instantly transforms simple, classic shapes into artistic, on-trend statement pieces. We love the way the graceful border of embroidery dresses up this Linen & Modal Tank. This tank looks great layered under our Organic-Linen Modern Cardigan. For a little more oomph, the LA Rita Knot-Tie Shirt by Johnny Was features ornate all-over embroidery. Rows of embellishment also defines the shape of our Organic-Linen Embroidered Tee (not shown in the video).

RAISING THE BAR ON STRIPED LINEN

Clean and classic with a nod to nautical flair, stripes make a bold yet refined statement as part of our latest linen collection.  From boxy Boatneck Sweaters and V-Neck Tees to the Fringe-Detailed Tank, stripes are a versatile alternative to solid-colored linen pieces. For more striped linen styles not featured in the video, we recommend the Easy Linen Tunic, Linen Pleat-Detailed Trousers, and Linen Fringe-Hem Shorts.
