5 key sustainable looks for this summer.

Today we thought we would pick out, our 5 key sustainable looks for this summer.

1)  The sheen on the navy boxy top with a slight copper coloured undertone marries well with the pleated pastel candy striped midlength skirt, with knee length slits up the sides for that summer airy feel.  Excellent for a walk in the park or a day shopping with the girls, the skirts blue and white will pick up on the vibrant blue of a summer sky complete with fluffy white clouds. Perfect for an English summers day.

2) A tapered culoutte for this seasons summer trend has come our way paired with a muted coloured gathered crop in floral. Recycled from vintage curtains, ideally paired with a wide brimmed summer hat to keep your bare strapless shoulders safe, and some chunky tan sandles for that on trend 70’s vibe. Less, hold the socks!

 3) For a more shaped sturdy aesthetic on top, this cherry red crop most suites an A-C cup, but more sizes can look good too. The hews on the upcycled patches, on the inside of the pockets, pick up the deep cherry colour of the stiff cotton top. Excellent colours for complimenting for a tan or darker skin, proving perfect for that holiday in the sun.

4) This high necked rose petal top has been synched in by this sky blue corduroy upcycled mini skirt . a sweet 16 pastel look for the retro 90’s teen. The shimmering panels on both sides of this top have ‘Clueless’ written all over it. Strut your stuff in those middy heels in town or that party, don’t forget that pink bubble gum ladies!

5) Mint green summer queen, this outfit is flirty fun and playful with its loose shorts and lavender blue flowers print. Its an outfit for the slightly can’t-quite-sit-still type, however with a French chic aesthetic with the slight shimmer and sheen as you walk down in the summer sun. Paired with cotton white socks and a vintage leather satchel take this summer by storm and be free sweet summer queen.
