Blue and White: the Freshest Summer Colour Combo

Every time I see someone wearing blue and white – male or female – I always think it is the freshest summer colour combo. Blue and white seems to suit absolutely everyone – whatever your hair colour, complexion or body shape. Which is why I’ve trawled the internet and come up with some great examples of this fabulously fresh colourway…

Looking cool… and when it’s hot, cotton does the trick every time. This mood-lifting striped shirt is from Floryday. MORE INFO

Brora’s relaxed fit cotton knit zig-zag t-shirt is a lightweight option for summer. MORE INFO

Bretons are, as we all know, a wardrobe staple. Here are two fabulous ones. The first is from Kettlewell Colours and is really feminine and fresh. A relaxed fit, it’s crafted from 100% cotton and has side splits at the hem. MORE INFO The second is an ultrasoft lightweight bamboo jersey from BAM has breathability, moisture-control, UV protection and anti-allergenic properties. MORE INFO

Poetry has come up with this printed linen cotton collared dress which has a relaxed silhouette (ie very comfortable to wear) and features an inverted back pleat and two hidden side pockets.

A kaftan is super useful – if we ever get to go on holiday again it takes you from beach to bar to restaurant with ease and, paired with white or cobalt jeans will be perfect for a socially distanced BBQ here in the UK.

The Magda midi length shirt dress features a vibrant cubic print in cobalt, simple frill hem and a tie waist. Loving the three-quarter length sleeves and mandarin collar.
