With a busy season of Summer events just around the corner, we’re planning the key pieces to keep close-to-hand for an instant style hit, no matter what the occasion. Of course, it’s hard for us to choose, but here are some of our top Summer pieces, in our all-time favourite hue.
Occasion: a family day out
Whether it’s a morning at the park, an afternoon strawberry-picking or a day exploring a pretty coastal town, a smart outfit which allows plenty of movement in breathable fabrics is essential for busy family days out. Summer is the perfect time for outdoor fun with the children so soak up the (hopefully) good weather in comfort with these essentials.
Our Symons Skinny Jeans have plenty of stretch and a sculpting fit to flatter every shape, yet retain their silhouette, wash after wash. A soft Broderie T-Shirt gives this look a casual, feminine touch (the 100% cotton fabric and delicate stitch-work keep it cool to wear, too). An elegant long cardigan will combat that British-Summer breeze, while leather and suede sandals will be comfortable through all that exploring.
Occasion: brunch with the girls
A healthy brunch, mid-morning coffee or evening gin and tonic: whatever you’ve got planned with friends this Summer, it’s precious time and deserves to be dressed up for. A look that says put-together, yet appears effortless, is the ideal friend-date outfit – don’t forget to add flourishes with accessories.
Start with our Clean Chinos in grey – the perfect casual trousers for an easy, modern look. Add a beautiful blouse in luxurious materials – silk and linen are always fail-safe – and finish with our chic leather sandals, Brass Beaded Tassel Necklace and matching Bracelet for a playful touch. Warning: your friends will definitely want to know where you got them.
Occasion: midsummer garden party
Whether it’s friends, family or neighbours you’re entertaining this Summertime, as host you need a beautiful white outfit to shine brightly (and evoke a sense of calm, even if it’s all an illusion!). Keep it fuss-free (as well as the food) and let a simple white dress do the talking – keep accessories to a minimum and enjoy a top-to-toe laid-back aesthetic.
With so many gorgeous white dresses in our Summer collection, we know it’s hard to choose. If you prefer to wear skinny jeans or leggings, our Linen Striped Hem Tunic is the perfect choice for a relaxed look. For a pretty ensemble which uses intricate needlework, our Floral Ladder Trim Dress, paired with Espadrille Wedges is forever-stylish. Alternatively, our Linen Gathered Dress showcases gorgeous blouson sleeves (perfect if the day isn’t as warm as you’d hoped).
