June 2016 Trend talk

Trend talk: Don’t burst our summer bubble

We’re knee deep in summer right now, and we want more. And more and more. And July’s reigning queen of styles fits in perfectly with this obsession.


This is the dress

The shirt dress is a one-stop outfit that magically combines a dressy feeling with total, relaxed ease. Now, if that’s not summer style, we don’t know what is. You can wear a shirt dress anywhere right now: to the beach, to a party, to summer class, to work (and sneak off to meet up with mates at that place, you know, that place, as soon as the clock strikes freedom). Now to the important question: are you a crisp white cotton shirt dress person, or a crazy polka dot shirt dress lady? Cause we’ve got a thing for the strict Scandi style white, especially in the wide, loose fit fit of the moment, but we’re all about the dot, dot, dots too.


Pattern of choice: polka dots.

And it doesn’t stop with the dress; how about polka dot co-ords, combining peg leg trousers with a cool open back t-shirt, or, if you prefer, a dotty pussy bow blouse? Or a rich blue polka dot jumpsuit, a crop leg playsuit in a thin, breathable fabric that looks great now and will look just as great when it’s back to reality time in August. Yes. Please.


Investment pieces that feel like impulse buys (in an awesome way)

We love versatile style. Wear now, wear later. Looks good, feels good. And if you too are going for versatile—pick a mini denim pinafore, a jeans dress that, worn over the must-have ribbed polo top, will make your mornings from now to November (just add tights). But let’s not think of tights now, and let’s not think of November, for many, many summer days yet.


Be prepared.

But. If the summer’s not as as sunny as it should be, we do have news for you: a fabulous black on white polka dot raincoat that would look awesome worn at any music festival of your choice. It would even look good in November. Keep doing that summer thing you do. You look so good going it.
