Maxi Linen Skirt

Dance fearlessly between the casual and the elegant with our Olen Maxi Linen Skirt, a multifunctional delight. Its waistband has been meticulously designed to leave a smooth, seamless finish that looks ultra-flattering and will have you feeling confident whether you are sitting, standing or rushing to a meeting.

For work.

Gracefully skimming the ankles, the maxi length of this skirt makes it the perfect addition to your workwear line-up. The certified European linen fabric will keep you fresh during the long hours at your desk and on the commute home.

A master at versatility, we will share just a few simple ways to style this must-have. Yet, it will also pair seamlessly with many of the favourites already in your closet.

For work, this skirt is dying to be paired with a white linen top, a classic for good reason. Tuck it in to accentuate the waist and infuse extra polish into your outfit. Or wear it untucked on casual Fridays — accessorise with a skinny leather belt for the final finishing touch to the outfit.

For sunny days, a silk camisole top in a similar tone would create a sophisticated effect and keep you cool. To dress up the ensemble, layer over a blazer. Because of the maxi length, adding some height to your shoes will give the illusion of a longer silhouette.

Looking smart at the office is not only about choosing the right clothes but also how you present them. Smooth, crisp linen entails much more than just the iron. Read our blog on how to keep linen from wrinkling for our best tips.

For play.

Sway into the weekend with the A-line silhouette of this maxi skirt that exudes an irresistible feminine shape while still being loose enough that it is comfortable. You can easily pair it with a fitted tee and look put-together, even if it takes you only seconds to get ready. 

For a fashion-forward look, wear a matching light blue vest as your top half. It will give you more structure, creating a fitted silhouette that will also impress anyone who understands the latest fashion trends.

Our maxi skirt also comes in a delicious espresso colourway that just happens to make your skin look radiant. Looking for ideas to style this brown hue? Discover the cortado rule, which recommends relegating darker browns to the bottom of your outfit and creamier whites and camels to the top half. Picture a frothy cappuccino.

A white singlet top is an obvious winning choice, but for those after some mood-boosting vibrancy, you can always opt for colour-blocking. Going for a top or cami immersed in reds, blush pinks, sunshine yellows, and vivid greens creates a winning summer outfit.

Linen Camisole Top

Delve into the world of breezy summer dressing with our Tie Knot Linen Cami Top, a lightweight must-have. Cut from airy Italian linen, it drapes lightly on the skin and feels like pure luxury on hot days. 

For work.

An all-black linen look during the summer is a bold move that radiates all things chic and sophisticated. Pair our linen top with equally black linen pants and black ballet flats for a sophisticated work outfit.

It is all about the polished extras to elevate a simple top and trousers combination into something fit for the office. A slicked-back bun for the hair, dainty jewellery, and a vintage-looking watch will all infuse refinement into the look. The top's v-neckline produces an elegant effect that can be dressed up with beautiful necklaces.

Going with an all-over black look is a simple way to put together a contemporary outfit with minimum effort. Leather slides will be a great accompaniment and suit a brunch and coffee catch-up.

For a casual vibe that still ticks all the fashion boxes, pair our cami top with denim cut-offs. It is a match made in fashion heaven while still relaxed enough to wear around the house.

How to style linen for summer?

When it comes to styling linen, less is more. This makes it ideal for the warmer months as it foregoes the need for layers of jewellery or other heat-inducing accessories. Here are a few of our favourite tips on how to style linen for summer:

  • tonal styling. Choosing similar tones is the quickest way to create a classy outfit that looks harmonious and saves you the headache of figuring out what colours match each other.
  • for the weekend. Pair your favourite linens with natural materials like brown leather, pearl jewellery and canvas tote bags. Raffia basket bags or woven details infuse your outfits with holiday vibes and French girl chic.
  • for work. Linen is an elegant choice for the office that will keep you feeling fresh and comfortable. Try to pair it with more structured and tailored pieces to dress up the overall look of your outfit. Incorporate signature workwear items into your outfit, like black pump heels, white button-shirts and blazers to dial up the professionalism.
