Best Linen Dresses for Summer
Linen is the kind of easy fabric that looks good on every body type. Whether you want a loose linen midi or a fitted sweetheart mini, there are tons of options to incorporate in your summer wardrobe. We especially love how linen can do triple duty – it's versatile enough for every day wear, the office and travel.
Below are some of our favorite options for comfortable and stylish linen dresses!
1. Loose Linen Dress
A great casual option, this linen dress is flowy and over-sized, with cute cap sleeves, buttons down the pack and two small pockets.
The fabric is a cotton linen blend and feels both soft and well made. It's the perfect linen dress for a hot summer day where you want to stay cool and comfy!
The cut of the dress is pretty simple, and reaches just above the ankles. It's loose without being tent like, comes in 8 different colors and best of all is very affordable.
If you're looking for a light, soft linen dress, this is it!
2. Linen Shirt Dress
Want a linen dress that transitions from the office to happy hour? This lightweight linen dress is perfect.
With its notched color, A-line shape and lived in feel, it's a timeless and comfortable linen option that you could dress up or down, depending on your shoes and accessories.
It comes in a bunch of different colors, and even a short sleeve version if you prefer. If you like white, don't worry – this is a high quality dress made from a thicker linen and the white thankfully is not see through.
Best of all, it's machine washable! Since it's 100% linen, definitely make sure to use cold water and anticipate some slight shrinkage.
3. Linen Sundress
Want a cute fitted linen dress?
This gorgeous sundress has a bustier style bodice, flirtatious side slit and modern silhouette. While it's a pricier option, the fabric is ethically sourced and produced and the fit is a dream.
It's perfect for nearly every body type, as the tie straps are adjustable and the sweetheart neckline is incredibly flattering.
Pack this to wear on vacation, at summer festivals and for special occasions! Note: this is 100% linen.
4. Checkered Linen Dress
For a stylish linen outfit, pick up this plaid linen dress that has a sweetheart neckline, wide straps and matching fabric belt.
Linen can sometimes be a bit stiff, so the row of buttons down the front make this easy and comfortable to wear on hot summer days.
Add a straw hat and strappy sandals to complete the look!
5. Linen Shift Dress
We love a classic shift dress.
This 100% linen option is well made and extra comfortable, thanks to its cotton lining and clean tailoring. It comes in an all white option or this fun blue print of safari animals.
Wear it with heels for an evening look or white sneakers for day time errands.
6. Linen Dress with Pockets
At first glance, this linen dress looked a bit plain. But after trying it on, I began to like the simple, comfy design.
The linen dress has 2 deep pockets (that can fit my giant phone), a roomy shape and side slits. The fit has a slight swing to it, so it drapes nicely.
Wear it on travel days, casual errands and sticky humid afternoons. It's made from thick linen so it isn't see through and is a perfectly elegant option for nearly every body type!
Made from a cotton linen blend and available in several different colors.
8. Linen Mini Dress
This linen mini dress is perfectly girly and has a cute flirty summer vibe.
It's made from 100% lightweight linen and comes with slinky adjustable straps and buttons down the front.
Our favorite feature? Side pockets!
9. Linen Midi Dress
If you're looking for a linen workwear outfit, this midi dress with its slim cut shape, contrast skirt and lightweight fabric is perfect.
The two toned color is stylish yet simple and we love the v neckline!
10. Linen Overalls
For something different, try these linen overalls.
Fabulously loose, light and comfortable, these simple overalls are simple and elegant. The fabric is a thick, comfy linen and comes in 4 muted earthy shades.
The only drawback is that it's only available in one size. You could wear it for gardening work, errands or even as maternity wear!
Best of all, it's very inexpensive!
