Fresh finds to brighten your look this summer

Your style guide to what’s hot this season.

This summer had a decidedly fresh feel about it, with citrus shades joining forces with cool shades of blue and green. Peppered with natural fibres and metallic finishes, it’s a great time to try something new, whether it be with your seasonal wardrobe, or entertaining at home. 

In vogue are tassels, on everything from jewellery to tableware, white stripes are a classic summer staple –particularly when used in a nautical-inspired colour palette. 

Whatever style takes your fancy, make sure you stay hydrated and invest in some sunscreen (zinc is favoured by skincare experts) to ensure you survive the summer looking your best.
