The days are getting longer, the number on the thermometer is creeping up, and signs of new life are everywhere you look. Growth. Excitement. Anticipation. Summer, could that be you?
What to Wear
After almost a year and a half in quarantine, many of us are simply ready to get out of the house. You’re longing to hop on the first plane, train, or automobile you see and get that first summer trip with your friends or families under your belt. But, after almost a year and a half of nap dresses, loungewear, and joggers, panic might be setting in! Do we even know how to get dressed anymore? What do we even want to wear this summer? Luckily, Universal Standard is here to provide the ultimate summer wardrobe — starring our five-piece, light-as-air linen collection.
Linen by US
A wardrobe staple that is well-known and well-loved, linen is a strong and lightweight fabric that is perfect for summer getaways. It never goes out of style, but if you have ever worn linen in the past, you know it has a tendency to be a bit stiff and can often be unforgiving. Universal Standard has changed the linen game by creating a collection with all of the texture and elegance you want, but none of the stiffness you don't. Our new, innovative stretch linen has the freedom of movement you have come to expect from Universal Standard, and with this five-piece collection, you’ll be sunning yourself on the shores of Ibiza in no time! Each piece is designed to mix and match or stand on its own. With summery colors like Golden Sand, Washed Indigo, Deep Aquamarine, Ocean Blue — as well as tried and true Black and White — get ready to say "Hello!" to the new summer essentials!
