How to dress up a linen dress?
Linen is a fairly casual fabric, but that’s not to say you can’t give a linen dress a bit of a revamp using fashion forward linen clothing staples. The trick is to choose accessories that complement and elevate your linen dress. To dress up linen for work, start with a linen shirt dress and add low heels or boots, and a few pieces of tasteful jewellery or a scarf. To take linen out for the evening, wear it with heels and more jewellery like a statement necklace – but think classic gold rather than dripping with diamonds. Tailoring always helps to dress an outfit up, so add a tailored blazer or a belt to emphasise your silhouette.
How to wash a linen dress?
First of all, always double-check the garment’s washing instructions before putting it in the machine – some items will need to be hand washed or dry cleaned. Separate your linen clothing from other fabrics and separate into light and dark. Set your machine to a cold to lukewarm, gentle cycle and don’t overfill the drum. Use a gentle, high-quality detergent and never use bleach. Hang your dress on a coat hanger as soon as the cycle has finished and dry it on the line.
How to iron a linen dress?
It’s easiest to iron wrinkles out of a linen dress when it’s still damp, so either iron it as soon as it’s done in the washing machine or give it a generous spritz with water. Use a medium- to high-heat setting on the iron and press until the wrinkles are removed — don’t iron it dry. Your linen dress should be ironed inside out to avoid visible shiny patches or fading.
