What To Wear For A...Weekend BBQ

As laughter fills the air at a weekend barbecue with friends, the Darci Dress in Navy Getaway effortlessly steals the show with its bold print and refined details.

An everyday maxi dress, the deep frill hemline of the Darci Dress sits above the ankle for easy wear with heels or flats; on grassy lawns, decks or garden steps.

Featuring extended neckties, this versatile neckline can be worn open (as pictured - perfect for a relaxed barbecue setting) or tied to style up a higher neckline.

What To Wear For A... Bottomless Brunch

Head to a bottomless brunch with a spring in your step - a dynamic print like that of the Caspian Palazzo Pant in Cancun will add vitality to your morning meet up!

With a pull-on waistband, stretch jersey fabric and wide leg cut, palazzo pants are super comfortable for sitting, supping and dining.

Beyond comfort, the drama of the voluminous cut gives the effect of a maxi skirt with the style twist of being a trouser.

Pair with a black cami top like the Eddy Cami in Black for simply sophisticated chic; add a playful pop of colour like the Kai Cami in Jade Bamboo or power up the print with a faux jumpsuit effect and the Briar Top in Cancun!

What To Wear For A... Winery Afternoon

In the midst of a sun-kissed vineyard, exude an allure as fresh as your Pinot Gris in a crisp white Arley Shirt and Ronnie Tailored Linen Pant.

Lightweight and breathable in sustainable Tencel fabric, the Arley Shirt is the perfect way to keep the afternoon sun off your shoulders.

French tuck (tuck in at the front and leave loose at the back) your shirt into tailored linen trousers for a sophisticated summer look dripping with European elegance.

In shades of Midnight, Emerald or Cobalt, linen is the ultimate summer fabric. Natural, breathable and moisture absorbent, whiling away lazy afternoons outdoors is easy in linen fabrics! While tailored cuts like the Ronnie Tailored Pant or the Rylen Bermuda Short to give structure to the silhouette.

What To Wear To An... Outdoor Cinema

Heading to an outdoor cinema on a balmy summer evening? The Bibi Dress is a playful yet elegant choice.

A fixed wrap dress style, the Bibi Dress features a secure crossover bodice and short sleeves. Designed to cover the knee, the full skirt of this fit and flare style flows in feminine style.

Reinterpreting the classic polka dot print, the new Blue Bubbles print adds a flavour of vintage nostalgia, screen heroines and the glory days of the silver screen.

Set the scene, settle in under the stars and bring big screen moments to life in the Bibi Dress in Blue Bubbles.
