Thinking of freshening up your wardrobe? Summer’s the time to inject some colour and print.
Let’s face it, when the mercury starts rising, it’s easy to slip on a simple T, but if it’s style you’re after that just won’t cut it. The answer? A linen or cotton shirt that will take you from beach to bar, garden to garden party.
A loose linen shirt is a timeless holiday staple and the epitome of relaxed summer style. Created from the fibers of the flax plant, it’s naturally cool on the skin and absorbent. Wear with chinos or jeans, or over shorts or swimmers. Embrace the relaxed look and the feel of linen, the more crushed the better!
This season we’ve got linen shirts in a range of colours and fits. From French brand Blue Mint we’ve got the Martin, a classic button-down style in shades of pristine White to Provence Blue. Team with their bright Arthur swim shorts for instant style points.
The Lars shirt from Brax is a cotton, linen collarless style. A classic and relaxed fit, it’s perfect over shorts and chinos for relaxing at home or taking away on your holidays.
A contemporary update of a summer classic is Blue Mint’s Mars design short sleeved shirt, available in two fun but understated summer prints.
A new brand for us is Xacus. This 60-year-old Italian company creates shirts of the highest quality. Their prints for summer are perfect for taking you from beach to bar. We love this pineapple print on the finest linen.
If you’re after a sportier look then we’ve gone bright and bold on our Brax Pete polo shirts. Are you brave enough for coral, pink or green?
When it comes to the summer months, your shirt, not your Jumper, is the centre of attention, so make sure it makes a bright and bold statement!
