While we may hope for bright blue skies and sun-soaked days, British Summers are notoriously changeable, making seasonal outfitting that little bit trickier. Here, we’ve compiled a guide to dressing stylishly for rain, shine, and somewhere in the middle.
When the temperature rises, it’s tempting to reach for failsafe shorts and tees. Instead, take style cues from Morocco with loose linen and pure-white cotton. Not only will natural fabrics keep you cool, they’ll also add texture and elegance. Maxi dresses, such as this 100%-cotton tiered piece, are the key to easy Summer ensembles – simply add elegant gold-toned accessories and beaded sandals.
When the sky can’t make up its mind, opt for lofty, versatile layers. An oversized, super-soft scarf is a great way to combat chills when clouds appear. Drape our lightweight foil design around your shoulders – its generous width allows it to double as a cover-up. When the sun decides to show, knot it around the handle of your bag for a hint of bohemian flair.
When it rains, instead of staying indoors, embrace the inevitable and channel pared-back, yet chic style. Leather plimsolls are a practical footwear solution – wear yours with a go-to pair of jeans and an all-important rain jacket. All that’s left is a backpack for everything you need on the go.
