Linen Apparel Report

Linen is a natural plant based fiber that is particularly cool and comfortable in hot weather.  It comes in a variety of weights from fine, tissue linen to coarser weaves appropriate for more substantial, casual garments.  It can be either knit or woven and is sometimes blended with cotton.  Colors tend to be either natural, bleached white, or earth tones, but more diverse color palettes have become more widely available in recent years.

Plus-size linen clothing tends to be classic in style and can be mixed with pieces to create more BoHo or contemporary looks.  In the summer months it is often possible to find career clothing in linen such as dresses and jackets, in addition to more casual items such as capri pants.  Office casual styles can include simple shirts and tunics, while more tailored looks work well in more formal professions.

Price points can range from moderate to upscale, luxury labels.

Higher end designer pieces can be organic linen or have specialty finishes. Organic linens are much easier on the environment to produce but lower in crop yield, so tend to push prices up.  Eileen Fisher is one of the few designers available in plus-sizes to work in organic linen.

Some designers such as Bryn Walker work almost exclusively in linen, while small artisan boutique designers such as Blue Fish that work exclusively in a natural, hand-dyed and painted aesthetics also frequently choose it.  A surprising entry to the organic fiber space in recent months has been the PURE line at Ulla Popken, a women's specialty retailer with styles available in size 12 to 30W.

Linen specialist Vivid Linen designs easy, relaxed pieces ranges from dresses, jackets, tops, pants, shorts, and crops in an assortment of colors for size XS to 4X.  Pieces work well for resort, casual office, bohemian, and classic styles.
