First we have this fun and flirty navy waistcoat playsuit from Asos, paired with an off white baseball cap from Primark.

 

These lovely white mid-heeled sandals  are a step up from flip flops, and with this outfit we’ve paired our Morris Blue Fruit pattern in two ways - a small clutch bag with chain in or out, and a matching scrunchie

Second, is an outfit as bright as the summer sun and the crack in the blinds at 5am.

 

Here we have a yellow co-ord mini skirt  from Y.A.S. and Schuh leather black sandals .

 

For the top, there’s options. Did you know that silk scarves are so versatile you can even wear them as a shirt? Perfect for an extra hot day. If it’s a bit cooler, or you’d rather be more modest, this Japanese Honeycomb Silk Scarf brings a pop of colour to that comfy white tee.

Let’s switch to men for our third outfit.

 

This summer, relaxed and pleated linen shorts  are all the rage. Think suit trousers, but shorter!

 

On a warm day that may call for dash of formal, try adding a short sleeved dress shirt like this one from Topman, and these Schuh Radley tassel woven loafers  into the mix.

 

It then becomes easy to add almost any tie to this neutral and summery base. The three ties shown here are, from left to right: Morris Snakeshead , Monet Pond , and Paul Klee Moonshine .

It’s time for our 4th outfit, can you spot some items from earlier? We’ve created a completely different look with the skirt and shoes from outfit one and two.

 

Try tying this large satin-feeling Ikat Blue & Yellow habotai silk scarf into a big bow in the front. You will look as if you’ve just stepped off the runway. We’ve also added this Van Gogh-inspired laminated canvas tote bag from our collection.

Lastly this linen jacket is effortlessly placed over a bright white tee.

 

We’ve got a number of pocket squares to tuck in to bring the look up a level. Pictured here: Stag , and Pheasant designs.

 

We’ve paired some basic black canvas shoes and sunnies to bring the summer sun, and wear over jeans or trousers. (not shown)

 

This outfit epitomises day-to-night with the addition of this single breasted linen blazer  in light grey and a pocket square.
