Styling tricks for an au naturel summer
It's time to get back to nature, at least as far as our style is concerned. The summer months can be a challenge, especially if you're dressing yourself for city climes rather than kicking back on the beach. The best way to stay cool whilst channelling that holiday feel? Combining our favourite au naturel staples. We've fallen hard for loose linens, woven accessories and cork wedges this season - here's our styling tips to wear them in your own way.
It's summer. You're hot, I'm hot. But when it comes to dressing for work, we can't always embrace the appeal of as little clothing as possible. The solution? Lighter-feeling linen materials and pale palettes. We're all about earthy neutrals, so whether you're going all out in cream and white ensembles or mixing light shades with khaki staples, just remember to keep the materials thin and the look simple.
Sunshine calls for beach-inspired accessories. Enter baskets, wicker bags and lots of texture. Whether you're dressing for your summer holiday, a Sunday brunch date or a balmy evening, these styles won't let you down. From clutches to beach totes and hand-held baskets, there really is a design for every occasion. The perfect companion to a LWD (little white dress), we'll be styling ours with every breezy outfit we own this season.
From cork wedges to of-the-moment espadrilles, we're really spoilt for choice this summer with nature-inspired shoes. The minimal designs and neutral shades of the below pairs make them great multitaskers. Wear yours with everything from white denim cut-offs and swimsuits to summer dresses. We love a sky-high wedge with embroidered maxis and billowing skirts, whilst espadrilles are our favourite work-to-weekend shoe.
