If You Buy Anything This Summer, Make It This Chic Two-Part Outfit

If the warm weather has been distracting you from your Who What Wear reading lately, this one sentence should bring you up to speed: The fashion world is losing it over linen this summer. From breezy dresses to chic trousers, linen fabrications are cropping up in every product category. However, if there's a piece that's proving incredibly popular, hands down, it's the linen shorts set.

A move-on from traditional suiting, linen shorts sets are summer's answer to co-ords. Breathable and versatile, they're a dab hand in a heatwave but also bring polish to your seasonal outfit rotation. I'm especially loving how my favourite influencers are styling theirs, whether over swimwear or jersey basics, paired with trainers or sandals. Fashion types are donning their linen shorts sets in a myriad of ways, the best of which I've outlined for you below. You're welcome.

Many of the designs boast beige and cream hues, which are classic enough to look good for future seasons. However, if you're looking for a little more personality, you will also find brighter shades at COS and Sleeper, while Mango even has some joyful rainbow stripes to choose from. Scroll on to see my picks of the best linen shorts sets. Then, once you've found your perfect duo, why not head on over to see the summer sandals that'll look perfect with them, too? That's the definition summer styling made so easy.


Naturally, your linen shorts set will also act as the perfect beach cover-up.
