Hot weather heroes: dressing to beat the heat

David Nieper
Style Advice

As we find ourselves in the grips of the Great British heatwave, striking the right balance between comfort and style can be tricky. Lightweight, airy pieces are a must in this weather, so here’s a guide to our heatwave essentials - all thoughtfully designed to look stylish but keep you cool and comfortable as the temperature continues to rise.

Linen-blend trousers and casual cotton top

Breathe easy

Embracing breezy, breathable and barely-there fabrics is an absolute must during hot spells. Lovely, lightweight linen and cool, fresh cottons will be your best friend - as natural fibres, they’re much kinder to your skin by absorbing excess moisture and allowing it to breathe properly. Beat the heat while looking suitably chic by styling our laidback linen blend trousers with our casual cotton top.

Sleep soundly

Endlessly tossing and turning on a warm summer’s evening is something we all want to avoid, so choosing the right fabrics and styles for your nightwear is especially important. Sleeveless nightdresses are the perfect solution - choose loose-fit styles in pure woven jersey cotton for coolness and to regulate your temperature.
