Hands up who’s looking forward to summer? Now the days are getting longer, and spring has fully sprung we can’t help but long for sunny days and balmy evenings. 

That said, for many people summer brings a whole host of clothing challenges. Maybe you really don’t like having bare legs or you balk when it comes to showing off your arms.  

Although we should all be proud of our bodies for what they are, these worries are often deep seated and can really spoil the summer months for many. 

So, we have come up with a few easy ways to help make dressing for warmer weather a little easier this summer. 


Explore different sleeve types 

Not all summer dresses have to be sleeveless. Lots of people find that cap sleeves are a great middle ground, offering some coverage for the top part of your arms, while still being nice and cool during hot weather. Check out our cream butterfly tea dress for example. In lightweight fabric with a pretty design and cap sleeves it’s a great option for summer. Alternatively, drop sleeves can be a good option too, allowing air to flow while offering additional coverage. If you like this look our blue loose sleeve tunic could be for you!  







Vary the length 

When it comes to skirts and dresses, try on a range to find the length that makes you feel comfy. We find our customers prefer midi or knee length options such as this gorgeous spotty dress, which flares fantastically when you give it a twirl. However maxi dresses and skirts are a great option if you feel more at home with some coverage on your legs. For real summer vibes our handkerchief hem dress is a great go-to.  








Treat yourself to a lightweight cover-up 

Lightweight wraps, cardies or boleros can be a blessing during the summer months, both in terms of offering a little more coverage and allowing you to vary your layers to cater for the Great British weather! We particularly love this floral print kimono-style top as it’s super pretty and it offers barely-there confidence-boosting coverage. It can be teamed with so many different outfits and it packs down nice and small if you are heading on your hols. The kimono is mid length though here our model Amanda has tied it at the waist to vary the look.
