On summer days when the temperature breaks 90 degrees, getting dressed is a game of figuring out how to leave the house with the least amount of fabric touching your skin. Thankfully linen, especially in the form of easy, breezy dresses, remains a big trend. The best part? Linen actually looks good with wrinkles, so you don’t have to fumble with a steamer when it’s equally steamy outside. Scroll ahead to shop our favorites in all sizes, from 0 to 24.
