A firm favourite of our founder, Chrissie, a floaty, bohemian top is the perfect holiday piece, and Summer staple.
This Summer’s selection has more choice than ever, from gorgeous printed finishes on soft silk to beautiful Indian-inspired broderie on a pure-cotton base. Wondering how to style yours? It’s easy. Try crisp, white styles with pale blue denim and pale chinos, or temper a printed blouse with white skinny jeans. As this style adds a little volume to your top half, keep proportions slim on the bottom half with skinny or straight-leg trousers.
The broderie one
The broderie on this top was inspired by a vintage swatch. Using the softest cotton as a base fabric, it was then embroidered with fine cotton yarns before being garment washed for softness. A gentle peplum shape gives a flattering fit and finish.
“My Summer wardrobe simply isn’t complete without a white blouse for every occasion. This beautiful one combines two of my favourite things: a flattering boho-style shape and wonderfully detailed broderie. A holiday must-have.”
Chrissie Rucker MBE, Founder
The luxe linen one
This year, we have introduced a new linen gauze, which is super-lightweight, with a more open weave. We’ve also washed the fabric to give it a lovely soft drape when you slip it on. Because the linen gauze is so beautifully delicate, we recommend layering this over one of our Essential Camis.
“I love this shirt-style piece in a new almost vintage-style linen weave, which is wonderfully cooling in hot weather. It looks great layered with a cami for a wonderfully relaxed yet chic Summer look.”
Chrissie Rucker MBE, Founder
The printed one
Detailed with intricate jour échelle detailing on sandwashed silk, this beautiful blouse is perfect for petite sizes as it is more streamlined than our other boho styles. Accented all-over with our gorgeous new Antibes print (also available on our bikinis) tuck yours loosely into the front of a pair of white jeans and add leather sandals for a carefree holiday look.
“Come Summer, natural fabrics are key. This top is made from pure silk, making it a gorgeous choice for Spring and Summer dressing. I’ll be wearing mine with pale-blue denim.”
Emma Griffin, fashion & lifestyle editor
The holiday one
This relaxed top is a new take on our popular peasant blouse shape, cut from a soft and crinkled cotton-viscose, which will still look charming after being packed in a suitcase. The hem is accented with three deep horizontal pleats, and we’ve added bohemian tassel ties at the neckline. Throw it on with easy chino shorts before heading out on a hot day.
“Boho looks are back on trend. I’m loving our tops worn with shorts, or soft cotton capris.”
