If you head for a seaside holiday this summer around our shores, you are never quite sure what the weather will be like. The secret is really about packing cleverly garments that you can mix and match and layer up just in case it freshens up. Don’t forget also accessories to turn a day outfit into an evening smart casual one with some jewellery, swapping the flip flops for summer heels with a lightweight jacket or shawl.
This summer we absolutely love our new ladies’ navy blue canvas jacket. Wonderful over our linen/cotton mix summer dress that you can wear to the beach and dress it up with a cotton scarf for the evening stroll.
Achieve the look
Our navy blue cotton jacket for ladies is made of the same thick canvas fabric as the one used for our traditional fisherman’s smocks. Long sleeved with patches on elbows, two front pockets, tailored collar and finished with flat metal buttons. A really nice casual jacket, perfect for the week-end and seaside holidays.
These linen/cotton mix dresses are great for the summer. Short sleeves, slightly batwing, in stripy white but also stocked in stripy blue, plain grey and plain coral. Once you own one, you will come back for a different colour. Just a great little number, the cotton mix gives it a nice feel on the skin.
A lightweight cotton scarf is also a best friend for lighting an outfit or keeping the chill away. Because of their size, these scarves are also versatile to use as shawl over a dress or tie around your waist like a sarong.
To finish, take some attractive yet affordable accessories like this anchor necklace in silver for the day and wear some statement earrings and stacked bracelets to dress up in the evening.
