In the Wardrobe Oxygen Community, Diane mentioned Chico's no-iron linen; she and Christine asked me to try it and do a Chico's Wrinkle Free linen review. Your wish is my command!

I reached out to Chico's, and they sent me three of their No-Iron Linen shirts – one in stripes, one in white, and one in hot pink. To ensure this was a quality review, before writing this and photographing me wearing the Chico's Wrinkle Free linen, I washed all three shirts more than once. I wore them tucked in for long days in the heat, shoved them into tight jeans, washed them again, and put them in the dryer.

There's no way I can do a quality review of Chico's Wrinkle Free linen if I don't try my darndest to get it as wrinkled and creased as possible! Spoiler alert, I am a big fan of Chico's linen!

Reviewing Chico's Wrinkle Free Linen

I chose to feature the white linen in this review because white linen is usually as opaque as Saran Wrap. I'm thrilled to report that Chico's no-iron linen is not sheer. I do have a nude T-shirt bra on underneath, but this white linen has such opacity that it makes this top appropriate even for the workplace.

And speaking of which, I usually find linen a no-no for the office (too rumpled) but this one could work. I washed the shirt with other white items the night before this shoot and threw it in the dryer. And then I left it there overnight without hanging it or giving it much thought.

I yanked the shirt out of the dryer the next morning, put it on, tucked it in, and did work for about an hour until my husband was ready to do this shoot. No iron, steamer, or Photoshop; this is how good the shirt looked after sitting in a dryer overnight.  I also find it just as cool and comfortable as normal linen (these photos were taken on an incredibly steamy hot day).

As an FYI, the color and patterned Chico's Wrinkle Free linen also looked great after being washed and dried. They also came out of the dryer crisp and ready to wear.

I find these shirts are generously sized; I am usually a 14 but my bust often makes me purchase shirts in a 16. However, with Chico's linen I was comfortable in a size 2 (Chico's has a unique size chart).

I really like Chico's Wrinkle Free Linen. This post is from 2018 but I revisited it in 2024 because Chico's continues to carry their no-iron shirts and I really love them. In 2020, I featured some of Chico's no-iron linen when I showed how to style one pair of linen pants two ways. Chico's linen has been a staple in many of my capsule wardrobes. I find the material holds up; I still own this same white tunic!

  1. Confession: ‘liked’ your FB page but never really paid attention to it. This morning, I actually came to your blog, and WOW! so glda I did! Dear lady, what a jewel you are: you are an adorable lady with a ‘normal’ body shape (ei: like mine) and am so proud and impressed that you have a ‘how to dress’ blog. Please take this as a true compliment. <3 Am going to splurge on the Chico's No Iron linen shirt: thanks for letting us know it's not see-through and it is real-life wearable linen (am so excited!)
