As designers based in Palm Beach we are experts in warm weather fashion. Our clients come from all over the world, love to travel and need to be chic and comfortable. A recent standout is our Best Linen Dress in Irish linen.


So while you’re sprucing up your spring and summer wardrobe, let us be the guidance you’ve been looking for. Below we have our ‘Best Linen Dress‘ done 4 ways. What better clothing item could you ask for?

 Here are four of our favorite looks:


Shopping in Town – Best Linen Dress in Reef Blue paired with a comfortable wedge, our teal blue beads and a tiny drop earring in the same shade, and then take along our Big Flower Malaya tote lined in cotton batik.

To the Beach –  In white we tied it with one of our Kikoy scarves from Kenya, accessorized with a shell and pearl necklace strung on leather cord and a silver necklace in a leaf design, some bright wrap bracelets made of dyed acai berries, and our BIG Bag in blue riviera stripes.

Dressy Lunch – In sand gold the same dress is very grown up – we paired it with a chunky crystal and gold statement necklace, nude stilettos and a big envelope clutch.

Out for dinner – we love playing with color for evening  – here we took the dress in chartreuse and added a lemon yellow Kikoy, deep coral beads, faux snakeskin cuffs and a fabulous oversized clutch in hot pink and orange.

As we leave you with these great looks – we can confirm a few terrific upcoming trips this dress is taking – in May it’s going to Paris with a young Vogue editor, in June it’s off to Istanbul (perfect for the climate and the length is appropriate for visiting the Blue Mosque), throughout the summer it will be in Harbour Island worn over a bikini and belted with skinny white cigarette pants, and in Palm Beach, our customers are cheering for the arrival of a great linen dress that can be taken out to lunch.


Have a great weekend from the two of us at CJ Laing and we’ll be back writing next week,
