Quintessentially British summers should always include fish and chips by the seaside, 99´s, lots of rain and relaxing afternoons sipping on a refreshing Pimms and Lemonade out in the garden with friends. In order to help you to relax even more this summer, we have set about creating 3 beautiful and comfortable looks for just such peaceful afternoons with friends.
P&L afternoon look 1 is all about colour and print. Printed t-shirts like this one are very in this season and serve to provide an interesting 3 dimensional feel to your look. Continuing on with the colourful theme, we love the mixture of blue and tie-die orange, giving the outfit a punch of different colour without being too bright. For the chilly evening breeze, we have provided you with this short Mac-style, blue jacket with waist tie and to finish off, in keeping with the comfortable theme, these nude, bejewelled pumps provide the perfect balance on foot, with a texture and a neutral colour without the need to resort back to the obvious, black or white. Why not accessorize this ensemble with silver and turquoise jewellery, such as a long silver chain and eye-catching turquoise pendant and turquoise ring?
For our second P&L look, we have gone for a dress and jacket ensemble. The cute, summer florals are girly and delicate, which is why the contrast of harder fabrics such as this suede jacket make such a good accompaniment. This is equally true of the double buckled orange belt, which not only adds a harder texture to the look, but a pinch of colour with a bold orange, matching the pretty, floral pattern. To complete this look full of texture and pattern, we propose a cream scarf to complement all colours without being too matchy-matchy. A pair of tan or dark brown brogues would look fab on foot!
Our third and final P&L look is peacefully neutral with some accents of summer colour. White jeans and a navy blue, sleeveless top provide the basis of this look, effortlessly accessorized with this purple and taupe mix, patterned scarf and white and tan doctor-style, satchel bag. To top everything off, we have elected this taupe, suede summer parka with flattering mandarin collar, the perfect n1eckline to complement the beautiful summery scarf!
Which one of these looks would you sport in the garden this summer?
