Linen Shirts For Women
Long ago linen was limited to use by the wealthy because it was difficult to produce and care for. Lucky for us all, these days linen—while still considered a stylish and luxurious fabric—is plentiful and used for things like tablecloths, napkins and bedding—and linen shirts for women. A beautiful selection of shirt designs is offered by INC International Concepts, Charter Club and JM Collection.
Lightweight and cool, modern linen still requires more care than other fabrics like cotton because it has to be ironed to remove wrinkles after machine washing. Drying linen in a clothes dryer can remove a lot of the wrinkles, but a totally smooth surface will probably require the use of a steam iron. Some linen shirts for women, like peasant shirts, are designed to take advantage of this wrinkling effect to resemble gauze, a lightweight fabric that can add a sense of softness and femininity.
Button shirts are often more formal than other styles and can be worn to work or around town. Tuck a linen button shirt into a pair of silk or linen pants for a neat, professional look or leave it un-buttoned and wear over a matching tee for a more casual effect. A scoop neck shirt looks good on almost any body style. Try a linen version worn off one shoulder matched to a favorite pair of jeans for a great evening look. Add metallic sandals and a clutch to dress it up a bit.
A tunic shirt is another terrific style in linen and can work really well worn with a crinkled linen skirt in almost any favorite color, pastel or bright. Add a pair of rhinestone decorated sandals and a matching clutch and this outfit can be perfect for any occasion that doesn’t demand formal attire.
Linen is one of those special fabrics that can be worn every day. Browse the great selection of linen shirts for women, as well as other women's clothing, today at Macy’s.
