Linen is the cool girl of the fabric family; even when relaxed and rumpled, it still appears effortlessly chic. So if you’re stocking your summer or resort wear wardrobe, you’d do well to add a few of the best linen dresses and separates to your cart.

A linen slip dress can work as a beach cover-up by day, then pair nicely with strappy heels for dinner — you even layer it over a turtleneck and pair with tights and boots in cold weather. Likewise, a linen shirt dress will surprise you with its flexibility; while it’s perfect poolside, the structured collar and sleeves can easily be dressed up with sleek loafers for an office-appropriate ensemble. Meanwhile, linen separates are a marvelously sneaky way to maximize your wardrobe. That pair of jeans you wore all through the cold months transforms into a summer staple with the addition of a linen button-down shirt; a pair of relaxed linen shorts can be paired with everything from tees and tanks to sweaters, and linen pants can be worn with a bikini top and sandals — you can even wear them when temperatures dip by adding a chunky knit cardigan. And for those who adore monochrome, there are matching linen sets for instant polish.

Even if your weather app is still reporting chilly temps, it’s not too early to do a little pre-season shopping. Scroll on to shop some of the best linen dresses and separates available on Amazon right now.
