What to wear: Summer events

We have collected some stunning, hassle-free and comfortable outfits to suit all occasions this summer! Whether you have a diary filled with events, a relaxed summer planned or perhaps you’re looking forward to a long-awaited holiday, we hope these pieces will fill you with confidence and be a joy for you to wear!


Event: Weddings

Celebrate a wedding in style in these gorgeous combinations! The lovely soft tailored jacket can be worn with our floral print skirt, coordinating classic trousers or matching panel skirt. Each pairing creates an easy, elegant and stylish ensemble and can be simply completed with accessories like our scarf or necklace for a beautifully finished look!


Event: Holidays 
If you’re setting off for warmer climes by plane, train or cruise make sure you pack our delicate printed blouse and cropped trouser combination! The blouse is a perfect versatile cover-up that can be worn with a range of outfits and there is a lovely spot detail in the weave. While the cropped trousers are made in an easy-care textured fabric with a fully elasticated waistband and the forget-me-not blue can be paired with a range of tops for hassle-free dressing!


Event: Garden parties 

Hosting or attending a garden party? Our printed dress is the perfect piece with its gentle shaping and eye-catching paisley design in bright summer colours! Pair with either our fabulous Italian woven wrap or wonderfully lightweight shirt jacket for a fabulous effortless outfit.


Event: Family gatherings

Relax in the summer sun with family and friends in these cotton-rich jersey separates that have been exclusively made for us. Both pieces can be paired independently with garments from your existing wardrobe or worn together with a plain t-shirt for a relaxed, feminine and comfortable combination.


Event: Gardening 

Our soft, relaxed leisurewear is a must-have for days in the garden tending to your plants or enjoying your yield of beautiful blooms. Choose from either our long or short-sleeve polo tops, each made in luscious cool jersey and pair with our gorgeous stretched jersey cropped trousers for ultimate comfort.


Event: Regattas

Enjoy the quintessentially British summer event, in our beautifully shaped jacket which has been made in cotton with a touch of sateen and features a striking floral inspired design. Couple with either the matching skirt or a pair of our versatile classic trousers and a white or blue top to accentuate the nautical colours.


Event: Picnics 

Pop out for a picnic this summer in our wonderful chambray pieces. The trousers have an elasticated waistband for comfort and the 100% cotton scoopneck t-shirt offers cool breathability. The coordinating shirt can be worn on chiller days or evenings and features a lovely subtle floral embroidery. Finish the ensemble with the gloriously nostalgic sun hat!


Event: Fêtes 

Home-made treats, painted faces and a morris dancer or two, there is so much to love about summer fêtes! If you’re attending one or more this year, dress with ease in our gorgeous floral easycare jersey separates! The edge-to-edge cardigan has three-quarter sleeves and a neat facing around the neckline, while the pull-on eight-panel skirt has an elasticated waist and a beautiful flare.


Event: Graduations

Will a loved one be graduating from university towards the end of the summer? You’ll certainly need a lightweight and comfortable ensemble for the occasion! Try our figure flattering textured overshirt and trousers. Both made from beautiful fluid Italian crêpe fabric. Finish the chic relaxed look with our classic Italian woven bag and venetian bead necklace or silk scarf.
