For a brand that sells mostly wool, we really do love summer. Picnics in the park, lazy days on the beach, and putting together the perfect outfit for the warm weather. Summer style has, in our opinion, some of the most fun fashion moments of the year. Having a few key summer staples in your wardrobe means that you can spend less time choosing what to wear, and more time enjoying the sun this season.
Summer outfits inspiration
Our Brand Stylist, Chloe, has put together her top five essentials for building out your summer looks.
- The white cotton dress
- Classic denim shorts
- Timeless black sandals
- A bright one-piece swimsuit (I love red!)
- Lightweight linen trousers
Each piece can be mixed and matched so well together and fit seamlessly into a capsule wardrobe, giving you a multitude of different looks for minimal effort. That’s ideal!
For example, you can layer a classic white shirt over a black tank, and pair it with linen trousers to give you an elevated summer evening look. Similarly, you can don a bright swimsuit with timeless straight-leg jeans to give you a brand-new top without having to purchase anything new. The possibilities are endless!
Sustainable summer style
The irresistible pull to go shopping in the summer can add to the joy that comes with putting an outfit together, but as always, we want to make sure we’re investing in pieces that last and can see us through the summers to come.
Invest in well-made pieces which use natural fabrics such as cotton and linen, both of which breathe well and keep you comfortably cool on those hot summer days. Classic silhouettes and styles will always stand the test of time, too - a white midi dress will never go out of style, and will always make you feel amazing while wearing it.
Accessories for ‘can you believe it’s this warm?’ season
Don’t forget the finishing touches that complete your summer looks; black or tortoiseshell sunglasses are the perfect summer accessory. Opt for some gold layering jewellery to elevate your outfit for the perfect ‘oh I just threw this on’ moment.
Small picnic blankets for summer
Not forgetting this summer's must-have accessory: the compact picnic blanket. Whether you're doing some solo exploring or looking for a spot with a friend, it's all of the adventure with none of the bulk. Simply roll up the blanket, pop it in your bag (or carry using the super handy built-in strap) and make any spot your spot.
