Cool & Classic Women’s Linen Dresses
Grae women’s linen dresses are new season favourites and it’s easy to see why. Linen clothing features all the benefits of natural, breathable fibres that soften with wear for a relaxed yet sophisticated look and feel.
What is a linen dress?
For centuries linen clothing has been made from the flax plant, which produces a renewable fibre popular as a summer fabric due to its natural breathability. Grae linen clothing spans not just lightweight summer dresses, but linen pants, shorts, shirts and tops and jackets for year round comfort and simple style.
A classic linen dress has many looks:
- Choose a plain linen dress, a linen shirt dress or a linen print dress for casual summer wear with slides and an across-the-body bag.
- A linen dress for work delivers smart casual style when worn with heels and suitable accessories.
- Try layering a linen dress in winter to experience linen’s unique ability to transition between keeping you cool in summer and warm in winter.
- Create a sophisticated look for winter by choosing a long sleeve linen dress teamed with one of our jackets such as a denim jacket or a linen blend jacket and tights or leggings with your favourite pair of boots.
Is linen comfortable to wear?
Knee length, 100% linen or linen blend summer dresses are set to become everyone’s go-to summer fashion favourites - but not just because they’re one of the most comfortable petite through to plus size dresses in anybody’s wardrobe.
Linen is a fresh-feeling fabric crafted for casual comfort and elegant style in a range of designs and colours. Linen’s versatility, breathability and natural fibres make it the fabric of choice for many women who love the lightly textured feel and structure of linen fibres.
Inclusive Grae sizing sees comfortable linen dresses featured strongly in just-landed seasonal dress styles and looking great in regular and plus sizes on every body. Light and breezy loose-fitting styles mean a size 8, a size 18, a size 24 linen dress and all sizes in between look and feel just right on every woman.
Can you wear a linen dress to a wedding?
When comfort is your preference but the occasion calls for style, a linen dress is the perfect choice. Suitable for any occasion, you’ll be reaching for linen dresses for your early morning breakfast meetings to your Friday drinks after dark - and everything in between.
Style a lovely linen dress with beautiful accessories and elegant heels and you have the perfect outfit for a garden wedding. You can relax and be cool and comfortable in your linen dress with buttons, a sleeveless style or with neckline detailing that looks as good as you feel.
A black linen dress or a white linen dress may or may not be your first choice for a wedding, but accompanied by stylish accessories and shoes, a black or white linen dress looks fresh and striking for any semi formal occasion.
