How to do sleeves in 25°C weather

Summer sleeves

Summer might signal cami straps and bardot necklines, but that doesn’t mean sleeves need to leave the building. We’ve sussed out some summer-friendly options (that we can actually wear a bra with!).

Peasant-ly surprised

A long sleeve maxi dress dress doesn’t exactly scream ‘sexy’, but thanks to the V-neckline and cheeky side-slit of this peasant dress, it’s brought right up to 2019. The lilac shade and light fabric make it summer-appropriate, too.

Safari, so good

It’s officially no-jacket weather, which means jumpsuits just became even easier outfit options (peeing-situation aside). Currently enamoured with this Pretty Lavish edition. Cool enough for the British summer, but warm enough to power through those chillier evenings too.

Bloomin’ lovely

When the inevitable mini-heatwave hits, we’ve got this little mini dress on standby. We’re into the subtle floral print and like how the puff sleeves add an SS19 edge. Pass me my wooden bag…

Legs out, arms in

It can be hard to find a summer dress on the fancy side (that isn’t a floral maxi) so just imagine our delight when this little white dress landed on site. Classic, but still feels very now thanks to the subtle Shakespere sleeve – we’ll be wearing it to everything (except weddings) this summer.
