Uniqlo linen V neck half sleeve cropped sweater goldAlthough we commonly think of cotton as being best for wearing in hot weather, linen actually has better absorption and evaporation than that uubiquitous fabric and it’s softer to boot.

Linen also looks more elegant, and thanks to Uniqlo’s special finish you don’t even have to worry about the bane of linen, its creaseability.

The Uniqlo linen range offers pieces for men and women; the womenswear includes everything from long-line jackets and cardigans, to a smart shirtdress (pictured left), a great knit (pictured right) and casual pants.
