Be it warm and humid or clear skies with sunshine, staying cool is on the top of our style agenda as we navigate the summer months. Our secret to handling the heat? Light, natural fabrics that allow our skin to breathe. Here, we take a closer look at our top linen and cotton styles from our SS19 collection and show you how exactly we’ll be wearing them…
The Lightweight Knit
Whether you want to take cover from the early morning breeze or the afternoon heat, a light, linen-blend knit is the perfect piece to throw on this summer. Slightly oversized and airy, this soft-touch style is coloured in warm orange and comes with wide batwing sleeves and a flattering v-shaped neckline – wear with everything from peg-leg trousers to denim.
The Midi Dress
Meet the midi dress you’ll be wearing now and next. Crafted from a naturally breathable blend of linen and cotton, this button-through design will keep you stylishly cool as temperatures rise. We like how the cinched-in waist creates a flattering fit, while the blouson sleeves with tie-up bows offer a feminine finish. Style yours for the urban jungle with a macramé bag and block heels in luxe leopard print.
The Printed Top
Fashioned for warm, balmy weather, this tea blouse is made from a lightweight linen and cotton blend and patterned with sunray prints in yellow and off-white. Note-worthy design details include tortoiseshell buttons and flattering three-quarter length sleeves with self-tie bows.
The Animal-Print Maxi
Offering a new iteration of animal print, this cool cotton maxi dress is patterned with leopard spots on a rust-red backdrop, making it perfect for both beach and city settings. Its calf-grazing silhouette comes with a fitted bodice and a gently-flared skirt and looks equally as stylish with sandals as it does with a pair of wedges for warm summer nights.
The Cotton Midi
A sunshine-yellow hue makes this pure cotton midi dress a summer wardrobe favourite, adding an uplifting note to its minimal mood. A simple neckline, wide three-quarter length sleeves and a defined waist lend it an effortlessly chic look, while white trainers and a straw circle bag provide the fashion-forward touches.
The Tank Top
Part of our eco-friendly S.E.W collection, this floral-print top is made from organic cotton that’s soft on the skin and kind to the environment. It’s designed in luscious green for a light, summery feel, and boasts a peplum waist for a form-flattering fi. Wear yours with denim.
