Exploring Closer To Home

Spending the warmer months a little closer to home? Rework your wardrobe with pieces that balance the sartorial signatures of the season with a more casual sensibility.

While in previous years the notion of summer brought with it a strong sense of wanderlust (usually with the promise of travel), this year’s hotter months are accompanied by a different mantra, one that’s decidedly a little closer to home…

Wardrobes that were once built around dress codes for barbecues, beach parties and basking poolside are now shifting into a more relaxed territory as the status quo of summer takes on a new agenda. Marked by tactile fabrics, fluid silhouettes and a strong quota on comfort, discover the styles that reimagine what it means to create a refined – yet realistic – summer look.

The sartorial embodiment of summer, a white dress wears well in all settings. Decorated with subtle print details in a fluid midi shape, the Romi dress stirs up an almost Grecian sensibility. Bringing a taste of summer’s escapism directly into your everyday style.

Add balance (and comfort) with a sleek tee or sophisticated touch of silk.

There’s optimism in a playful pattern. While louder prints may feel too jarring for days spent at home, a more muted palette is welcomed as a new dimension to casual daywear. Look to summer’s bountiful florals for a seasonally relevant wash of colour.
