Your Summer Story Starts Here
As the sun starts to shine our minds drift off to busy beer gardens, long alfresco lunches, sandy beaches and jetting off on holiday. Then boom, we are hit with fret, what are we going to wear in the heat? Here at Kit and Kaboodal we are very familar with the ‘fret’, but worry not we have stunning arrivals that will be perfect to wear all summer long. Think loose layers, lightweight fabrics and luscious colours.
So to celebrate the start of Summer we have a wardrobe guide to your holiday essentials. We are talking about the perfect trouser, dress, top, jacket, tunic and of course accessories. The pieces we have chosen are so versatile and will be your summer staples to layer with everything! So what are we waiting for…
The perfect style trouser for Summer has to be a casual fit, lightweight, comfortable, easy to pull on over your bikini and most of all stylish. The only style that perfectly ticks all these boxes has to be the Made in Italy Filey Linen Cropped Trousers. These gorgeous trousers are a steal at £30.00 and due to them having two sizes available you are guaranteed to find the perfect fit. The great thing about these linen trousers is they work perfectly with sandals, flip flops, espadrilles, loafers – everything! And best of all you can dress up or dress down these trousers making them a perfect holiday essential. The bad news? They are available in 14 colours so you’ll be wanting them all!
So that’s trousers sorted but what about a dress? This was a hard one, we have so many lovely longer length styles that layer perfectly but we decided to go for something a little bit different to add a bit of variety to your wardrobe. The Made in Italy Reano Dress is a perfect day to night dress that has a little bit of glamour making it perfect for teaming with some wedges, jewellery and a clutch. Our favourite aspect of this dress has to be the multiple layers, with an underskirt, silk skirt and linen top you can throw this dress on and not worry about adding other clothes, it really does do all the talking.
To keep our linen theme going strong we have chosen the ideal top to wear with jeans and skirts, The Made in Italy Tivoli Cowl Neck Linen Top. This sleeveless number is sure to keep you looking classy whilst keeping cool with its classic cowl neckline and simple shape. This Audrey Hepburn inspired style keeps coming in new colours all the time so you can really make a colour pop with the bright orange, lime or cobalt!
Now what to wear on an evening when a cool sea breeze hits you? Well a cropped jacket of course. Now this style has been around before, but due to it being so popular last summer we just had to stock it again. It’s the Made in Italy Chicago Jacket, a very versatile jacket for just £30. You can team it with a tee and jeans, trousers, or even wear it over a dress! We love how this style is available in so many colours too, you can wear something very neutral and then brighten it up with this smart style.
If you are after a slightly longer length style to keep slightly more covered up then we can’t recommend the Made in Italy Imperia Linen Tunic enough! Tunics can work brilliantly with trousers or leggings and the beauty of this style is it is sleeveless. Wear it as is, or simply add a white long sleeve tee underneath or a jacket on top, the possibilities really are endless! The ruffle detailing adds a little elegant touch making it great for wearing on an evening.
Ever struggled with Summer accessories? Us too! You need a tote big enough to fit all your holiday essentials, some comfortable footwear to wear on the plane and through the day, plus some stylish new jewellery to add a bit of interest to your outfits. We have new accessories arriving all the time but here are our top picks at the moment.
The Tessa Tote is gorgeous everyday bag with a added coin purse that you can even use as a clutch bag on an evening if you wish! If shoes are what you are after then we couldn’t recommend the Holster Sneakers any more. The gorgeous trainers are available in 4 stunning metallic shades to add a bit of glitz to your everyday wardrobe. Finish your look with our new lagenlook chunky jewellery like the Danna Necklace or Juana Bracelet, guaranteed to add a splash of colour to your outfit.
Now we have picked out our new Summer favourites we can all calm down, relax, order some pieces and step into summer with no fret – hurrah!
