The Spring Summer seasons brings many occasions that make their way into gardens and under gazebos to spend time in the sun rather than indoors. So we obviously need a wardrobe to suit, right?
Collen and Clare are home to several designers that will have you dressed to the nines, ready for your weekend getaways, summer wedding or any party that may be thrown your way. Linen is always a go-to fabric when the warm weather hits us as it allows our skin to breathe, but S Max Mara have put their own spin on a somewhat dated fabric. Their Marche Shift Dress embodies a 60’s style with its contrasting piping detailing and a design that is made to create a flattering silhouette.
But occasionwear doesn’t have to always be simple and sophisticated colouring, it can be as bright and beautiful too. If you are after something a bit more colourful then Goat is the brand to go to. Their Babylon Frill Dress is figure hugging and fun loving with its frill accenting around the neckline, arms and pockets, adding an element of excitement to the outfit. The eye-catching pink is bound to make you stand out in that crowd.
There are plenty of options for the men out there when it comes to dressing smart. SS16 will allow men to embrace patterns when it comes to their shirts and Hartford has this nailed. Their quirky and colorful pieces brighten up your wardrobe and matched with some stone trousers, you are garden party ready.

SS16 allows us to break the rules when it comes to men’s footwear too, feel free to put away your black lace-ups and embrace something new. Loake have a wide selection of brogues to score that British Heritage look, but, how about a suede loafer? The Eton’s leather sole ensures durability whilst the suede upper creates a relaxed vibe so that it can still be dressed up making you look like you paid attention at Fashion Week…
