What better summer fabric than linen?
Linen is one of the oldest fabrics in the books, and for good reason. It is super absorbent, which means it will wick away the moisture from your body quickly, allowing it to evaporate. This is a huge benefit for summer styling! Not to mention linen is durable, holds shape, and is all natural!
Now let’s talk style! Linen has, in the past, come in relatively select types of styles. Think loose fitting items, with little shape, and basic cuts.
However, over the years linen has become a hugely popular fabric, which means the styles are really starting to expand. We now have more linen than ever on the shelves, and in more styles to fit every body type and personal style.
We have a few favourites in-store and online right now! https://www.jemsboutique.ca/
If you are new to linen, this is a great place to start! This style barely even looks like linen, but has all the benefits. These joggers are high waisted with a drawstring, slim cut, and have the best moto-inspired detailing.
Don’t be scared to mix your linen with other fabrics! Here we paired our linen pants with a cotton T-Shirt, and even added a leather jacket!

Perfect Linen Dress
The ease of a linen dress in summer is irresistible. Our favourite styles this season are from our in-house designed line, Go2. The Michaela Pocket Dress is a classic loose linen look, with added pocket details. And the Maureen Jumper Dress is the perfect summer layering piece.
We encourage you to try a belt with the Michaela Pocket Dress! It cinches in your waist for a perfectly effortless look.
Linen From Head To Toe.
The best part about buying a full linen look is the mix-and-match potential! The Gina Bell Pant, Addy Coat, and Candace 2 Layer Tank combine to make the most classic linen look you’ll be throwing on all summer! But we also style these 3 items in many different ways. Talk about the ultimate linen capsule wardrobe!
Quick Tip: Because denim and linen are both natural fibres, they can take on a similar weight and texture and therefore pair beautifully together! So if you’re feeling nervous about mixing fabrics, try your linen with your favourite jeans, shorts and jackets! Then once you’re comfortable, get creative!!
