When it gets hot outside, I rely on one fabric exclusively: linen. I own several pairs of the best linen pants available and turn to them as a go-to between May and September. But I’m always looking for new lightweight pieces to add to my rotation, and there are a few brands I look to repeatedly for a wardrobe refresh—Banana Republic, Gap, and Uniqlo. This week, I perused their newly stocked sections for the best linen essentials to pick up before the weather gets sweltering.

This edit will help create the perfect, street-style favorited all-linen outfit. I found a few linen dresses alongside breezy linen shorts to keep in your travel capsule wardrobe. If you need a new summer work outfit, I found more than one linen blazer that will keep you cool but offers a great layering piece for the office air conditioner.

Keep scrolling to shop all of the affordable picks—they’re all priced well under $200, with some priced under $50—but they’re also well worth the money. You'll hang onto these fundamental wardrobe basics for years to come.
