Summer in the Office
There’s nothing worse than being stuck in a hot office as you struggle to stay cool in workwear. Heavy shirts, blazers and trousers aren’t ideal for the summer months so it’s time to invest in chic workwear that will see you through the seasons. Our linen collection includes a wide range of dresses, tunics and tops that are perfect for the summer. Designed to be light and airy, you can create your own capsule workwear collection using key linen pieces paired with cotton leggings or stretch skinny jeans. Linen is an ideal choice for those needing to keep in line a workplace dress code as it always looks smart and chic, whether you opt for something classic and neutral or inject colour into your look with a vibrant shade.
Finish your new office look with smart sandals or platform espadrilles and you’ll certainly mean business this summer.
Summer Daytime Style
A summer’s day is the perfect time to go on a walk, whether you’re hitting the shops or meeting friends for a long overdue lunch! One of our favourite go-to summer outfits is a pair of linen culottes or harem pants paired with a classic cotton t-shirt. The wide leg fit of the trousers will ensure you stay cool and comfortable throughout the day, plus the cotton t-shirt won’t restrict you like other heavier materials.
The relaxed nature of the pants means that you don’t need to worry too much about your footwear, opt for a smart pair of sneakers or a flat pair of sandals to really get the most of a day spent exploring your surroundings!
Is there anything better than the smell of BBQ on a summer evening? We can’t wait to celebrate the summer with friends and family over a burger and a cocktail, but what’s best to wear when faced with an evening spent outside. Let’s face it, a British BBQ could include a myriad of different weathers so we’ve put together a classic look that will keep you comfortable even if the weather takes a turn!
Our linen jumpsuits are totally on-trend right now and ideal for an evening of fun and food. These jumpsuits are designed to offer a relaxed fit, with wide legs and comfortable straps. Wear alone or over a cotton t-shirt and finish your ensemble with a statement necklace from the range. Our linen jumpsuit range includes a variety of styles to suit the summer plus plenty of colours you can stock up on and rotate throughout the season.
If the weather cools, simply slip on a lightweight jacket in a neutral shade or a light cardigan that can easily be stored in your bag until needed.
