So, with sun-soaked evenings in mind, we have picked our June essentials to make sure you start your summer with a bang. From the must-have trousers to dresses to die for you can rely on Kit and Kaboodal to keep your outfit fresh and unique all season long. Without further ado, let’s show you which styles you need to pack in your suitcase!

The Shirt

Nothing beats a crisp linen shirt in summer. A natural fibre, it’s lightweight and breathable and most importantly planet friendly, so you can feel guilt free if you find yourself wanting every colour in a style! Our Made in Italy Par Premium Linen Shirt is a great weight linen that you can enjoy now and right through to autumn. Its oversized shape means it can easily be layered making it perfect for wearing with jeans, trousers, skirts and more – a true capsule piece! Available in a wide array of colours you can keep it classic with white, or add a zest of colour to your life with our bright blue, just like the Turkish blue lagoon!

The Dress

A summer wardrobe isn’t complete without a summer dress and we have a great selection of linen, cotton and jersey dresses online. Our favourite this season has to be the Made in Italy Tiverton Dress. Crafted from soft jersey this longline piece works beautifully with flip flops or wedges making it a great day to night style. Plus the long loose shape is lightweight and comfortable on those extra balmy summer days or, if you stayed out too long and forgot to reapply your sunscreen, it’s a great cover up! Which design will you choose?

The Trousers

You can’t beat a smart pair of trousers for when you’re wining and dining at the marina. Teamed with a chunky wedge or heeled sandal, it’s instantly elegant and perfect for a night of luxury! We’ve picked out the ideal trousers to wear whilst you sip champers – the Made in Italy Sabbia Trousers! These palazzo pants have a retro feel with their wide leg, and you can even enjoy an after dinner ice cream because of the elasticated waistband which guarantees a perfect fit every time. If you want to create a more relaxed look then try our linen version too!

The Tunic

If you want to inject colour and pattern into your wardrobe then a tunic is the ideal way to do it. You can balance the pattern with neutral trousers or simply jeans and you are ready to go. The Made in Italy Paradise Printed Tunic features a gorgeous allover tropical print which will instantly make you feel summery. With frill detailing and tassel ties, this style has a feminine touch to make you feel like a spanish senorita.

The Skirt

A skirt is a summer saviour. Take it to the beach to throw on over your swimming costume, add a smart top and some jewellery for an evening, or simply add a tee and flip flops while wondering through the markets- the possibilities really are endless! One of our favourite arrivals this season has to be the Made in Italy Kaimes Washed Linen Tie Skirt. We love this style because it can be worn multiple ways to create different looks, so you are getting two looks for the price of one.

The Shoes

Simple yet stylish, we love this new ‘slip on and go’ sandal which has just landed online! With a simple flat sole and vegan suede uppers it is a great alternative to a flip flop for a more ‘dressed up’ vibe. The little elasticated panel allows for extra comfort when you’re walking around exploring the sights.  Available in stone, black or animal print, you can keep it monochrome or make a statement with these sandals.

£22 | Fit UK 3 – 8
