When it comes to winter dressing, the key to success lies in layering – but just how to go about striking the perfect balance without freezing or overheating? Enter Flax London. As its name suggests, the British brand specialises in the use of linen, showcasing the versatility of the ancient fabric by experimenting with weights, weaves and finishes. The result? Beautifully crafted shirts, overshirts and jackets that lend themselves perfectly to year-round layering, thanks to their strength and breathability. Scroll on for four easy-to-layer Flax London styles worth integrating into your wardrobe this season.
Chocolate Brown Linen Overshirt
Crafted from a suiting-grade twill weave Irish linen, Flax London's overshirt is equal parts sturdy and stylish. Layer it underneath a heavier coat in winter or wear it unbuttoned over a tee as a summer jacket in the warmer months.
French Blue Railway Jacket
This workwear-inspired chore jacket will fast become a favourite thanks to its pared-back aesthetic and fuss-free functionality. It's warm and insulating yet lightweight enough to throw on over a sweater.
Eucalyptus Heavy Linen Signature Shirt
Made from 100% Irish linen that is thicker, more opaque, and more textured than standard shirting linen, Flax's Signature Shirt boasts a straight fit that drapes beautifully. It will look just as great with your weekend uniform of jeans and sneakers as with more formal suiting and loafers.
Oatmeal Heavy Linen Grandpa Shirt
The informal grandpa collar on this heavy linen shirt makes it the ultimate smart-casual addition to your winter wardrobe. We love the soft oatmeal collar, which offers ultimate versatility.
