Spring is upon us and we’re all wanting to get outside. Want to know what you’ll be wearing this Spring? One hint: It starts with the letter “L” and ends with “inen”. That’s right, linen. Jenny Fong of Modern Shibori loves GOTS-certified organic linen for many of her elegant and stunning hand dyed garments.
But why do we love linen for spring so much? The thing about linen is that it has beautiful drape, translating to how it flows around your body, capturing the air and keeping you cool as a cucumber. This particular linen is wrinkle free because of its density, organic fiber and quality construction. On top of all that linen provides UV protection on top of your sunscreen.
For spring we’ve used organic linen in our Vega Top and Stella Pant. Jenny did a video showing 3 ways to wear these versatile pieces. Check it out! 👆🏼 (Yes the video is very dark. We've since ordered a bigger stronger ring light!)
For Casual, Dressy Or Sporty Outings
Wear this outfit to a casual Sunday brunch, go to the museum and grab a refreshing cocktail afterwards looking effortlessly put together. Or dress the outfit up by doing a French tuck, add a belt and some statement jewelry.
And to go sporty, we kid you not, wear this outfit to go hiking! Add a hat, sunscreen and hiking boots. Linen is super durable and washable. Think Indiana Jones. Yes, it’s a movie but also, think about real life adventurers way back when who wore linen before there were high tech wicking fabrics. No joke.
Comfort Is In The Details
The Vega top features French seams, mitered corners, and a long hem in back that you can tuck in or wear pulled out. French seams are clean finish and so soft on your skin. Plus the seam has been sewn two times, there’s no breaking these. This is a top you’ll have for a lifetime.
The Stella Pant has a pull on flat front with 4 pleats so you look put together and elegant. The elastic waistband and belt loops make it so easy to get dressed adding a belt for security and structure if you want it. Plus there are 4 pockets, two in front and two cute patch pockets in the back. Planning any spring or summer travel? These will be your go-to travel and, surprise, hiking pant! These pants will go the distance with you and all of your adventures.
