Fashion tips

Styling for summer

Styling for summer clothes layout

Summer is on the horizon now and with it comes its lighter and longer evenings. This has to be my favourite time of year, with the promise of warmer days just around the corner. I have been busy pulling together some outfits that I can wear now and for the coming season for (fingers crossed!) all the days out and trips we can make – and what I might be able to wear out for a drink or for a nice quiet meal or pub lunch.

Here are a few pics of some outfits to give you a bit of inspiration on what you can put together using our current blouses. I have worn all of these tops already either working from home, to make me feel smarter for work, for weekend walks and on the school run.

We have some new midi dresses arriving very soon so I will also get you some pictures of those very soon too!

I hope you enjoy, Clare x

One of my favourite tops is the fluted sleeve blouse in dalmatian print and leaf print.

This can create the perfect jeans and top look. Pair with your favourite jeans dressed up with heels or dressed down with trainers. And as the weather gets warmer, I love some denim shorts or a skirt with sandals to complete a summery look. You can even tuck the top into a midi skirt like this pink pleated one.

Our frill shoulder top has a long flowy sleeve to take you through cooler spring days and into summer. Here I have paired the green daisy print with denim shorts and some Birkenstock sandals, but this would equally work well with your favourite jeans and trainers. A simple denim skirt and sandals would work for warm summer days too. I love the colour of this in the ochre too – it gives a real pop of colour to brighten up your day!

The tie sleeve top or pussy-bow is a perfect pairing for jeans – adding some heeled sandals creates a smarter look that is work zoom / office friendly. And then it’s ideal to take you from work to the pub garden! The longer sleeve will keep out the chill on a cooler evening too. The blouse can be easily tucked into a skirt such as a pleated midi and paired with sandals for an equally smart summer outfit.

Polka dot blouse styling

The peplum top has an elasticated waist to create an elegant silhouette and works well with some jeans and heeled sandals for a going out outfit – or dress it down with shorts or denim/white jeans in summer with flats for a perfect casual daytime outfit.
