Summer in Colour: Dressing For Sunshine

  • Posted on

It seems that here in the UK we're being blessed with a REAL summer this year. The sun is shining day after day and we can't believe our luck. It's cause for celebration and a rejection of drab, dreary colours. Complement your new sunny disposition with suitably mood-enhancing clothes in hues that sing!   The easiest way to add colour is with a vibrant new jacket. The rest of your outfit can stay neutral if you're a stranger to head-to-toe colour, but a splash of bright fuchsia pink (from our unlined linen jacket) or pale red (our unlined cotton jacket) will certainly revitalise your look.   Pale red cotton jacket by Oliver BrownOliver Brown unlined linen jacket     Similarly, a pair linen or cotton trousers in a bright new hue will put a spring in your step, wherever you're going. Worn with a crisp white shirt, the look is contemporary and fresh. Our linen jeans in pale blue are the perfect swap for traditional denim. While our smarter single-pleat linen trousers in fuchsia are the braver choice for smart or casual events. Pair our pale red cotton trousers with the coordinating jacket for a head-to-toe tonal look that's perfect for summer weddings.   Oliver Brown blue linen jeansOliver Brow fuchsia linen trousersOliver Brown pale red cotton trousers     And finally, for the less brave, colourful accessories are a joy to wear at this time of year. A polo belt with navy and soft pink accents will lift a pair of neutral chinos. Socks are the entry-level way to add colour, providing a subtle flash of colour at the ankle. And for the sartorially-inclined? A silk handkerchief artfully tucked into your breast pocket is the perfect finishing touch to a formal tailored look.   Oliver Brown polo beltOliver Brown colourful socksOliver Brown silk twill handkerchiefs
