With warm weather approaching, it’s time to pack away our jumpers and bring out the t-shirts and shorts. Luckily, the change in seasons doesn’t have to mean an entire wardrobe overhaul. A few key pieces can be styled differently to last all the way through the summer.
Linen trousers are a summer classic, thanks to the versatility of the fabric. Both flattering and comfortable, trousers with a fully elasticated or drawstring waistband are ideal for lounging by the pool. Our Silver Linen Trousers are ideal for branching out from the classic black or white look, but still compliment many other colours due to the neutral shade. Alternatively, you can create a smarter look with cropped trousers like our Q’neel Blue Stretch Crop Trousers, which are more fitted than the linen trousers but just as comfortable.
Summer is high time for parties and gatherings, and a stunning sundress is a must-have. Patterned dresses like our Chianti Jungle Print Dress make great statement pieces, and can be teamed with neutral shoes and accessories. Simple, single-colour dresses, such as our Vetono Green Crinkle Sleeveless Dress, create elegant silhouettes and a few small changes, such as swapping a light cardigan for a patterned scarf, can transform the look from day to evening wear.
Chances are, you already have a t-shirt or two in your wardrobe, and for good reason: a simple top is one of the most versatile summer items. By alternating combinations of accessories, skirts, and trousers, a simple top can be worn again and again and look new and exciting every time. T-shirts are available in almost every colour you could wish for, but black and white are a good pair to start with, as they are classic colours which can be worn with anything. Black is also slimming, and white is naturally cooling on hot days. Our Ivory Lace Blouse with lace detailing adds some elegance to a simple look. Different cuts suit different body types, so try a V-neck, scoop neck and sleeveless top to find out which flatters you best.
As I mentioned earlier, a patterned tunic with linen trousers is a winning combination. Our Que Smock Tunic can be paired with a maxi skirt, or jeans on cooler days. Longer tunics can also be worn alone or with tights on formal occasions. And the tunic is not just a summer item: long-sleeved tunics can be layered over shirts or vests as it gets colder.
Whilst we’re certainly hoping the sun will shine all summer long, a light pullover is useful to have on hand for cooler days or evening barbecues. Our Vetono Red Stripe Box Pullover has a simple cut which suits any body type, and will allow you to cover up without sacrificing your summer style.
