Summer is here (although, with this weather it doesn’t always feel like it) and with it comes a feeling of fresh-start fashion: it finally feels like we have licence to actually start wearing lighter, more seasonal pieces that hint at the – hopefully incoming – warmer days. First up, allow your look to pack some punch by playing with metallics. Shades like gold, silver and gunmetal are an unexpected hint of summer glamour and pair well with wardrobes staples like shirting as well as lightweight blouses. Invest in Marks & Spencer’s silver maxi skirt now and you’ll wear it long after summer has passed. Meanwhile, the dress of the season is all about gathered and shirred fabrics that skim and flatter the body: see H&M’s statement black dress, below, which is entirely wedding guest appropriate. Meanwhile, striped trousers, in both linen and cotton, are back in vogue after going viral last summer. The update? Branch out into bolder colours (see the Stella Forest pair, below, from Dublin boutique Costume that come in a joyful shade of green) or try a blouse and shorts co-ordinates set. Lastly, great accessories are never far from our minds (see the mid-range French bag brand we’re loving here), and right now we’re enjoying new discovery St. Agni, the Australian brand that comes up trumps for woven basket basket bags and totes, as well as 90s-inspired shoulder bags. Equally as appealing on the accessories front, the collaboration between Scottish luxury goods brand Strathberry and Collagerie focuses on artisan-crafted scarves, bags and wristlets that allow stripes to take centre stage (something we always welcome): its skinny silk scarf will be the final flourish to any summer look. Scroll below for the wow pieces we’re craving right now: happy shopping.
