Affordable Linen with Glassons

MXM_0182Hello fashionistas,

If you’ve been following me on Instagram you would have seen that I’ve become obsessed with Linen! Linen is so comfortable to wear and looks great for those “relaxed but pulled together” looks. But linen can be quite expensive, so I was so glad to see that Glassons has so many amazing linen designs that are on trend yet affordable. Here’s some of my picks.

Linen Blend Wrap Skirt // $39.95Β 

Available in different shades, I went for black because I felt I would get more use out of it. It’s pretty true to size. I’m about a 10 to 12 down the bottom and the skirt in a 10 fits like a glove, but then again that’s the beauty of a wrap skirt.

When wrapping it, it can be a bit difficult as it can bunch and the band can move up in the back. So play around with it to see what works for your body shape.

Linen Blend Strap Dress // $59.99Β 

I’m so glad I bought the dress in burnt orange! Its such a beautiful dress that you can dress down with flats or dress up with heels. I’m so tempted to buy it in white and black- don’t tell Ben.

With the dress I bought a size 12 as my size was sold out. I would say its true to size and if they’re out of your size, go down in size.

Here’s some other Glassons Linen purchase I bought. They’re older styles and sold out, but I wanted to include so you can see the diversity in their range.

My tips when wearing Linen is to make sure to iron them. After they’ve been washed my linen clothing looks wrinkly and crushed- not a good look. Make sure to take the time to iron, it will be worth it.

  1. Linen is one of my favourite fabrics (along with Silk) both are a little high maintenance on the iron/steam front but oh how I love them!! I am planning on taking mostly linen to Europe with me this year!! Grana have some beautiful pieces they have just released and while a bit more expensive than Glasson’s still really affordable!
