How To Handle A Heatwave - Our Stylish Guide

Rumour has it there is going to be a heat wave hitting England over the next few days.  Although I am sceptical, it is always good to be prepared with some heat wave go too outfits.  We will look at a few of our heatwave friendly items available as well as how to style them for maximum summer chic, rather than sweaty chic.

Handle this heat wave with sustainable fashion outfits

Even sitting down at the moment ensues a hot sweaty mess, however with these cool and breezy styles you will feel relaxed even on the hottest of days.

I always choose natural fabric when it’s extra hot and with not much material. We have some beautiful cool airy camisoles in cotton and silk which are the perfect start for a bright and breezy outfit.

Even during a heat wave there may be events that you still need to dress up for. To continue the light floaty feel even for events that may run into the night we have some beautiful loose fitting items.  It’s the perfect way to stay cool but ditching those clingy dresses or tops. Our silk loose Christian Dior glam top is perfect to keep you cool with cut away arms and natural material.  Our second evening top is by luxury brand BCBG Maxazria and is also in a natural silk. It is a beautiful wrap top that can be worn and tight or as loose as you require.
