With the long and cold winter months finally behind us, summertime is drawing nearer. Finally, you can pack away your cosy heavy coats and knitwear that protected you from freezing temperatures but with the unpredictable British weather, it is always a good idea to be prepared. Beat the rollercoaster weather, where you could be enjoying the sunshine, then be facing fierce winds or rain, with clever layering. Summer can be a challenging season to dress for, but layers can help you keep warm or cool being easier to take off quickly to suit the ever-changing weather. If the temperatures rise, these pieces can easily be wrapped around your waist or over your shoulders. Our new lightweight and comfortable layers which can be worn now from our summer collection can help to ensure you look and feel your best.

In a timeless summer material, layer with our light and airy linen jacket with gentle body shaping in the top-stitched seams. This stunning casual jacket is unlined and styled with buttoned pockets and notched turn-back cuffs. Our white coloured outfit including a 100% cotton V-neck top paired with our lyocell and cotton blend cropped trousers and leather belt can help reflect the sun’s rays when it’s warm.

Keep the breeze away in this lightweight fully lined summer jacket, finished with two zipped pockets, self-coloured piping, top stitch detail and an inside pocket. It looks lovely worn with our neck detail T-shirt which complements the jacket beautifully and casual trousers.

Our lovely unlined paisley jacket in 100% linen, with three-quarter sleeves and a front yoke with mock pocket flaps, is the perfect statement piece to wear throughout the summer season.
