With the weather being as hot as it is, we want summer fashions in cooling materials. Naturally, we’re looking to Talbots, which offers apparel that every sophisticated lady loves. From dresses, jackets, and shorts, to shoes and accessories, the retailer can always be counted on to give a modern twist to classic women’s clothing.

Since it’s summer, we have linen on our mind. It’s a breathable and light fabric, making it ideal for warm weather. It’s also durable and has a more sophisticated quality than polyester. We love wearing the material in the form of a dress, shorts, button-down top — you name it.

Talbots is one of our go-to places for classic women’s clothing, and right now, they have some amazing lightweight looks in their linen collection. Honestly, we’re having a hard time settling on which ones we’re adding to our cart, but this is what we’re thinking:

Best Classic Women’s Linen Clothing From Talbots

Linen Boyfriend Shirt

Buy from Talbots, $99.50

Every woman needs at least one boyfriend shirt, and this option from Talbots is one of our favorites! It has a curved shirttail hem, which keeps the button-up from looking boxy, plus the back yoke ensures it drapes in just the right way. The 100 percent linen shirt falls right at the hip, so it’s a great to wear with leggings or a tight pant. However, we also like it tucked into a pair of jeans or pencil skirt for a business-causal meets cool girl look. Available in the colors ultra pink and white.

Square Neck Linen Fit & Flare Dress

A sundress is one of our favorite pieces for summertime — especially when it’s as pretty as this one from Talbots. It’s the perfect blend of fitted and flouncy, plus its linen material will keep you cool on the hottest days. Its midi-length shows off a little leg but not too much, and there’s even a hidden back zipper. Sizes go up to 18 and are available in misses, petite, and plus.

Linen Pintuck Yoke Shell

A snazzy new top is one of the easiest ways to dress up a plain pair of pants. We’re going with this Linen Pintuck from Talbots. It features a side-split at the hem and has an effortless pullover style that we’ll happily reach for on busy mornings. The tropical print is fun and interesting, and the color combo of blue and white keeps it from being too loud. A gold Three Steps Pendant Necklace (Talbots, $59.50), and a pair of Beach Queen Earrings (Talbots, $29.50) is all you need to make the look really pop.

Washed Linen Easy Slim Leg Pants

Leggings are comfy, but they’re not exactly sophisticated. We shop Talbots because they always have classic women’s clothing that’s both stylish, functional and — gasp — actually comfortable to wear. These linen pants, for example, are light and airy, but have enough je ne sais quoi for semi-fancy affairs. It all depends on the shoes you wear them with, so go for fancy sandals or wedges on date night. For more casual days, a crisp pair of white tennis shoes will do the trick. The pants are available in four colors, including flax and blue.

Washed Linen Jacket

A lightweight jacket is essential for combatting air-conditioned hotel lobbies or restaurants. We love the large faux-horn buttons that this one has, as well as the way the drawstring bottom allows the fit to be adjusted. It comes right to the hip, so it won’t completely hide your outfit, and the patch pockets are a great place to slip your phone or keys. Available in four lovely, summery colors, the jacket can be grabbed in misses, petite, plus, and plus petite.
