Melissa's top five summer picks
Melissa with her five top picks (and wearing two other favourites - the Zoe V Neck and Geri Print Skirt!)
As we start emerging from months of lockdown life, I’ve never craved summer more. I can almost feel the warmth of the sunshine as I imagine those long, lazy lunches, evening barbecues and trips to the beach. As I browse through the new summer styles, I know exactly what I’ll be wearing. Tricky as it is to whittle down a favourites list, here are my top picks from the collection, and how I’ll be styling them. I look forward to hearing which colourful styles will be finding their way into your basket too!
Ruched Halterneck in Lime
Destined to become my ‘dress-up, dress-down’ go-to – perfect with shorts on the beach or smart with jeans, heels and a jazzy pair of earrings in the evening.
How I’ll wear it: with a Cashmere Gauze Stole in Pink Geranium to cover my arms when the temperature drops.
Lydia Linen Tee in Pink Fizz
Hands-down my favourite light summer tee in my favourite Spring pink. I love the texture, loose, floaty fit and pretty cap sleeves.
How I’ll wear it: over a Lace Cami, with either jeans, paperbag shorts or the Weekend Skirt.
Romana Shirt in Green Teal
I just love this shirt – it’s so cool, light and floaty and appeals to my natural side. I tend to avoid loose shirts as an hourglass, but as this shirt is made of tencel jersey, it’s sheer and lightweight enough to give definition.
How I’ll wear it: with white jeans and a Long Vest in Apple Mint or Pink Fizz for an instant colour pop.
Supersoft Sweatshirt in Sunshine Yellow
I love this sunny colour and can’t wait for the coral colourway to arrive at the end of the month. I always size down to a small in this style because it shows my shape when it’s neater fitting. Such a versatile, comfortable team player in your wardrobe.
How I’ll wear it: with a Weekend Skirt in Twilight Blue.
Weekend Skirt in Pansy
The perfect everyday midi skirt in so many ways: not too full, not too much fabric, great texture and 100% cotton so it doesn’t create the dreaded VPL. Oh, and the elasticated waist means it’s incredibly comfy too.
How I’ll wear it: with my Lydia Tee in Pink Fizz and a gold metallic belt to break up the look.
