Because it’s high summer and we’re ready for the ease and breeze that linen brings into our wardrobes. The days of linen being strictly bohemian and earthy are long gone – designers are repositioning this flax seed textile into the territory of contemporary chic that looks good both in the daylight and under the neon lights. All in the hues of blues.

Rejina Pyo top (£329)

 

If you could only choose one updated staple this summer, let it be this Rejina Pyo tailored re-constructed striped shirt. It will take you from the beach into the night.

Antonello Martis Quadri tote (£516)

 

Designed in London and handcrafted in Italy, Antonello Martis’ elaborate tote bags are the perfect summer luggage – they will fit everything from a lipstick to a spare pair of shoes.

Castañer flatform sandals (£155)

 

You don’t always have to forego style when choosing comfy shoes. These Castañer flatforms are a perfect example of comfort looking chic – throw on an oversized white shirt-dress and call it a day.

Mara Hoffman dress (£390)

 

Summer heat doesn’t sound that bad with this Mara Hoffman dress on our minds. The definition of summer dressing, you will only need a pair of white canvas trainers and a whiskey-coloured hobo bag to complete the look.

Johanna Ortiz trousers (£672)

 

If Studio 54 met Côte d'Azur, this is what Bianca Jagger would wear while rocking on a white horse. The high-waisted palazzo trousers by Johanna Ortiz will work best with a simple white sleeveless top and some vertigo-inducing platform heels. It’s disco on the beach.
