How To Style A White Linen Jacket For Spring and Summer

If you live in a hotter climate, you already know linen clothing is excellent for spring and summer. Linen helps keep you cool, which is essential in hot, humid climates. Today I’m going to style a white linen jacket in several ways to show you how versatile this item is.

How To Style A White Linen Jacket With A Maxi Dress

When I was looking for a casual linen jacket, it seemed all I could find was blazers. I love wearing blazers, but I’ve seen comments where ladies wanted something more casual. I found this White Linen Jacket, which is perfect for a casual look.

I wanted to show you how to style a white linen jacket in several ways, and a dress was my first look. A dress is something I love wearing in the summer, but I like wearing a jacket or cardigan with them to keep me warm. This knit floral maxi dress is perfect for summer. I love the seam under the bust because it allows the rest of the dress to flare out for a flattering silhouette. I’m wearing a medium instead of my usual size large.

I love the modern cut-out detail that is modest and tasteful. It lets me partake in a trend in a way that I’m comfortable wearing.

One way to style a white linen jacket is by draping it over your shoulders. The most common way to wear this jacket will be worn over your arms. The jacket looks cute either way you choose to wear it.

How To Style A White Linen Jacket With Wide Leg Pants

Wide-leg pants are one of the hottest trends in jeans and pants. I recently did a post on Wearing Wide-Leg Jeans When You’re Over 50 if you would like to see more ways of wearing this trend.

This is a great summer look that is casual and chic. I like to call an outfit like this…elevated casual. It is comfortable and relaxed but put together and stylish.

This is a close-up look at the White Linen Jacket. If you look closely, you can see that it is thin and unlined. That is a plus for people living in warm climates. I love the buttons contrasting with the white jacket, and the drawstring waist adds to the casual vibe. I’m wearing a white tank under the jacket, which is of excellent quality. You can’t see through this tank; I’m wearing a large, and it fits me perfectly.

You’ll love these wide leg striped palazzo pants. They are so comfortable! The pull-on elastic waistband is wide and doesn’t roll over when you sit down. I also love the deep pockets that hold your keys, phone, kleenex, etc.

This Rattan Satchel is such a perfect size! I bought a larger one last year, and I get compliments every time I carry it. The Buckle Leather Sandals are a great neutral and will go with everything this summer. I love wearing sandals with jeans, shorts, or dresses, so I’m sure to get my money’s worth from this purchase.

How To Style A White Linen Jacket With Shorts

Linen on linen is the perfect recipe for a cool summer look.

This outfit would also go under the elevated casual category. Do you wear white on white? I love the clean, crisp look. I styled this outfit with black accessories that added to the classic style.

These Linen Blend Cuffed high-rise suit shorts came in before I left for the beach. I love these shorts so much that I also ordered pink and beige shorts. They fit so nicely and look gorgeous. These shorts are dressier than most since they have large cuffs, but they can still be worn casually.

How To Style A White Linen Jacket With A Jumpsuit

The last look is this European Linen Square Neck Jumpsuit with the linen jacket. Once again, this is a linen on linen outfit, but the jumpsuit is European Linen although I had no idea what the difference was. After some research, this is what I found:

So, what makes European linen the best linen fabric in the world? The unparalleled quality can be attributed to the unique climate conditions in the European continent, the mineral-rich silty soil and generations of farmer expertise.

Flax plants grown in the region are known for producing extra-long fibers — much longer than those from linseed grown in other parts of the world. As a result, the European fabric is remarkably strong yet notably soft and breathable.

The linen jumpsuit is from Quince. Quince is quickly becoming one of my favorite retailers to shop. The products are of excellent quality, and the prices are reasonable. They also have free shipping and a 365-day return policy!

  1. Love, love, love Martha Stewart! She looks great! No matter what she has had done she is an inspiration to all of us! Really cute outfits today, love the light weight jackets !!

  2. Becky Kerwin says:

    Love that dress! I also love linen clothes so yes a jacket is really a must in the summer with air conditioning. Thanks!

  3. The white linen jacket is so cute, but the stand-up collar would be in contact with the foundation on my face, I’m afraid; and that means frequent laundering. I really like the linen jumpsuit!

  4. Judy Thompson says:

    I love Quince and have bought several sweaters from them and they are excellent quality and prices are very reasonable!

  5. Oh my–just gorgeous dress! Love the detail on the back!

  6. Hi Tania!
    I love the floral dress and white linen jacket! You said you were wearing a medium in the dress- is it roomy or snug?
    I am a 40 in the bust and don’t want it to ge tight.

  7. Karen Fable says:

    thank you for guiding me toward dressing more age appropriate. i’ve c I mr to the realization I can’t continue to dress as I did in 30’s & 40’s. time forva fashionable update.

  8. I’m so happy to see Quince being mentioned. I love every one of their products that I’ve bought—sweaters, linen pieces, even jewelry. The quality is amazing, items are affordable, and the return policy cannot be beat.

  9. I wish I could find a more crop linen jacket. cute outfits. At least the magazine put Martha Stewart ,who is a real woman, on the cover no matter her age. (All photos on covers are photoshopped.) For her age she does look good.

  10. Love the summer looks. I agree, Martha looks great. So happy we are seeing older women being appreciated. I hate that everyone thinks they have to look 30 to be beautiful.

  11. I love all these looks, Tania, but especially the black and white mitered stripe tank. Couldn’t find the ‘link below’. Could you please site your source for this item?

    1. Laurie, the striped tank has sold out. It was from Chico’s.

    2. I just checked on the striped tank and it is back in stock at Chico’s!

  12. I love all of the outfits especially the jumpsuit!

  13. Glada St. Clair says:

    I love these fresh outfits.

  14. I love linen and this jacket is just what I didn’t know I needed. I can’t swing the price on this one right now, so I’ll be trying to find one like it for less asap. I think you look amazing in the black and white top and the jumpsuit is adorable!

    1. Thanks, Sheli. I went in and updated the posts where I had worn it.

  15. Linda Grimm says:

    I love the jumpsuit. Thanks for informing us about different types of linen.

  16. Tania, these outfits are great. I didn’t think the jacket would go well with the wide leg pants, but it looks really good! Thanks for showing me a new look.

    Martha Stewart does look beautiful.

  17. Tania, all great outfits, the shorts are my favorite! Looks so good on you.
    I agree with about Martha. She probably has had work done, but she did it correctly. Go Gurl!!!

  18. Sharla Broussard says:

    Surprising how cute the linen jacket looks with shorts!

  19. Tania, you look great in all these outfits. Love the floral maxi dress from Talbot’s. I purchased it in the blue floral print. Great summer dress.

  20. All of these outfits are super cute! 10/10 today!

  21. All the outfits today are adorable. I really love that jacket.

  22. Love the jacket! the problem with living in Florida is I don’t need any jackets!

  23. Dana Smithmier says:

    i love this white linen jacket❤️

  24. I love every thing about this post! The white jacket is a little more casual than the classic blazer and I like that! Martha Stewart looks fabulous! If she’s had work done it is tasteful and enhances her natural beauty. If I had her money I would do it too! Most of all she shows us what 80 can look like and still have class! That’s my goal! Thank you for the beautiful ideas!

  25. Jackie Lambes says:

    Hi,I really enjoy following you and appreciate all the good styling advice for us more seasoned gurls. I just wanted to say about Martha Stewart. Why can’t we all just celebrate the fact that society is finally getting that older women are beautiful,vibrant and are still very much here. She is a beautiful woman period. I think we should all refer back to the old saying. If you don’t have something good to say don’t say anything at all! I am 68 and finally feel free to be exactly who and what I want to be. I wish I had figured it out much sooner but having fun with my new found confidence about my face,my body and every little thing about me!
