Many women are wary of linen because of the crease factor which is totally understandable, you are either a linen fabric wearer or not. If you’ve yet to try out linen fabric I’m here to tell you why I love it so much!

For the Love of Linen from Off The Rails Fashionista

Personally, I just love the way linen feels and hangs on the body especially in white and neutral colours. Linen fabric also absorbs colour very well, like this gorgeous green dress from Smudj clothing.

This is such a beautiful easy to wear dress, you just slip it on add your favourite accessories like I have done here with this gorgeous tan leather Patina bag (available to shop on my online site) and glasses, from Select Sunglasses, and you are ready to tackle your day.

In keeping with linen, this jumpsuit in the natural colour-way ticks all the boxes, also from Smudj! Style it up like I have done with these neutral leather heels from Julz Shoes and matching new style Patina bag keeping it elegant. It’s perfect for this spring weather, that morning birthday breakfast out in the open or alternatively with a pair of sneakers which will give the look a street style edge.

Smudj is a locally owned and designed business originating in Joburg, but they have a fabulous online site as well as being stocked at local boutiques such as Tallulahs in Claremont. There’s no reason to miss out on their divine linen pieces!
