There's nothing worse than staring into your closet on a 95-degree day: You know full well you're about to walk outside and get hit with a brick wall of hot air. By the time you reach the subway, you're melting, and it's not even 9 a.m. That's where linen comes to save the day. The easy, breezy fabric is the perfect solution to your summertime sweats (sorry, that was kind of gross.) With styles that include slips, button-front, and ruffles. the breathable material will make sure you beat the heat while looking fabulous. As our May cover star Megan Thee Stallion once said: "It's a hot girl summer," so live your best life without worrying about sweating through your outfit. Linen is your summer life hack.
