Summer’s finally here and if you’re anything like us, you can’t wait to refresh your wardrobe with something that isn’t loungewear (well, most of the time...). We asked a few of our marketing team what pieces they’ve had their eye on from our collection and how they’d style them for all those occasions we’ve been dreaming of over lockdown!

1. Gingham Puff Sleeve Midaxi Dress
“Cannot wait to slip into this dress for my much-awaited friends’ bottomless brunch. I’m going to style with a pair of trainers (because I’m not quite ready for heels yet ) leather jacket draped over my shoulders, a pair of statement earrings and this bag which adds a splash of colour!
May re-use in a few weeks and mix it up with a block heeled studded sandal for a date night!”
Jess Rhodes, Buyer
2. Recycled Floral Midaxi Dress
“This is my favourite type of outfit to wear for summer, a midi dress made of light, breathable material with a pair of comfortable trainers and a basket bag to give that casual summer look. I have also added a pair of silver hoop earrings as the tone suits the light blue of the dress. I love the buttons on the dress as it means you can adjust the split to make it more day or night appropriate.”
Aisling Molloy, Campaign Implementation Manager
3. Floral Pyjama Style Blouse
“After over a year in joggers, I want to keep it comfortable this summer but I'm also looking forward to adding some extras to my wardrobe to give it a lift. The solution? This floral shirt elevates my simple summer shorts + cami outfit perfectly.”
Clair Janchote, Campaign Implementation Manager
4. Polka Dot One Shoulder Midaxi Dress
“I love a print for the summer months! This dress is relaxed enough to cling on to lockdown comfort but bang on trend with the one shoulder cut and polka dots. I’d bring in some glamour with gold accessories – perfect for a summer city wedding - or wear it casual with some of our new converse lifts and a big summery bag in the day!”
Jess Langton, Trading Manager
5. Denim Utility Jacket
“My summer edit is most definitely all about loose fitting fabrics and neutral tones, I want to feel comfortable and with no big plans I want to be able to make the most of my wardrobe! I want to be able to change an outfit easily by swapping sandals for trainers and a blazer to a denim jacket to give my outfits a complete new look.”
Liz Barnett, PR & Social Media Executive
6. Gingham High Waist Shorts
“I’m so excited to wear shorts this summer and get that much needed vitamin D! I’m upgrading my usual denim with a gingham pair. Throw on a trusty white tee, layered necklaces, crossbody bag and classic pair of Stan Smiths and I’m ready to go. This cream denim jacket will keep me warm on those chilly British evenings too, perfect for staycations or the beer garden. I’m all about comfort so if I’ve not got any plans you’ll likely find me in some sliders.”
