The sale. It’s here. It’s happening. Let’s get excited. The summer sale has arrived just as summer nears its precipice. With many of us yet to make our way on holiday or fully enjoy a lazy summer evening (the British weather hasn’t been playing ball) the discounts really couldn’t have been delivered at a better time. At last, it feels like everything is falling into place, and the arrival of the summer sale is to act as your wardrobe-godmother ensuring you stay fashionable while relaxing on the beach, or surpassing your daily step target on a city break.
Post-Christmas we wait for our summer hols impatiently, so when the time finally arrives wanting the perfect wardrobe to match our expectations is understandable. With so many designers vying for our attention, and so many captivating trends to try, how are you supposed to navigate fashion’s finest? Fortunately, our resident stylists are on hand to act as a fashion compass and point us in the direction of some seriously stand out pieces. We’ve asked our stylists what they’ll be buying from the sale to inspire your sartorial decision making.
My summer pick would be the NEIL BARRETT Patch Pocket Shirt. The lightweight linen and cotton blend will keep me cool during the day, with the open neck collar makes it a stylish choice for wearing at night.
A pleated skirt is a wardrobe staple, and this MSGM Multi Print Midi Skirt has the perfect floaty summery vibe. The contrasting prints and asymmetric hem add a funky edge that makes it easy to wear both casually during the day, or styled with a pair of heels as an elegant evening look.
It’s my wedding in July and the NEIL BARRETT Band Collar Shirt fits perfectly with the look I want to compliment my suit: the bib panel gives it an edge over the more traditional band shirt. It’s a piece I’d definitely wear it again with a more casual outfit; it’s an excellent wardrobe staple.
To me, summer is about feeling good, bright colours and feeling comfortable in your own skin. My summer pick is definitely the MSGM Tie-Dye Dream T-Shirt. It’s quirky and comfortable, perfect for summer.
