THE SUMMER SWAP TO LEAVE YOUR DENIM JACKET IN THE SHADE

The denim jacket has had our hearts since the 90s but there’s a new cover up in town just in time for summer. There’s less to the style, two sleeves less to be precise, but less is definitely more when it comes to this Emporio Armani Sleeveless Waistcoat, a piece that has got festival favourite written all over it.

INTRODUCING THE SUITCASE SAVIOURS

The first bank holiday of the year has a tendency to trigger a little wanderlust in all of us. Yearning for some sun after seeing out the worst of the winter, we’re counting down the days to those late morning Mimosas and coconut scented sun creams, our suitcases full to the luggage allowance limit with pieces that show off sunkissed shoulders and tanned pins.

Spring may have only just sprung, but it is already all-out summer in store here at Robinsons, where new season arrivals have us putting holiday looks together in our heads on an hourly basis. If your first holiday of the year is just a matter of weeks away, may we suggest you let us lend a helping hand and take the pain out of packing with the help of our suitcase saviours. Consider these the classics that will take you from Cornwall to Cape Verde, Costa Rica and beyond. Simple, sophisticated and made for summer, they’re the case contenders no holiday wardrobe is quite complete without.

His shirt

The big day is just around the corner but we were coveting Megan Markle’s style long before Prince Harry put a ring on it. It’s hard to tell whether Ms Markle borrowed her oversized white shirt from Harry but she has scored some serious style mileage from its chameleon-like ability to adapt to any outfit. When it comes to holidays, a slightly oversized white shirt will lend a chic yet casual borrowed from the boy look to denim shorts and also serves as a cool cover up on beach days.

The jeans

Jeans might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you’re getting holiday ready, but it’s hard to think of anything that says summer quite like a good quality white pair. Save your leggings for the gym after one too many ice creams at the all-inclusive and wear your white jeans to the airport instead. A grey jumper will keep you cosy when the air conditioning ramps up mid-flight, while flat tan slip-on mules or espadrilles will show off that pre-flight pedicure.

The dress

There’s something about the sun that makes us reach for white, even when we’d steer well clear of its stain attracting tendencies at home. In fact, white works so well with a tan that we couldn’t consider a suitcase complete without a white dress or two. This applique Michael Kors style will look a million dollars with glowing skin, whether you’re off to the beach bar or hitting Rodeo Drive, baby.

The wedges

We know it’s finally summer when our ankle boots are replaced with wedges. If you’re reluctant to hang up your heels even on holiday, these Michael Kors wedges with luxe rivet detailing will offer the extra few inches those maxi dresses need if your height isn’t quite upto Elle Macpherson proportions.

THE SHIRTS THAT DON'T TAKE THEMSELVES TOO SERIOUSLY

Who says suited and booted has to mean staid and serious? ETON shirts argue just the opposite with their microprint cuffs and collars. On first appearance they’re a simple white shirt, cut with the same care and attention you have come to expect from ETON, but look a little closer and there’s a subtle shot of personality hidden in those crevices. Really wild safari scenes or ice cream dreams, there’s nothing bland or boring about these subtle details. Sometimes the smallest touches make the biggest impact.

THREE WAYS TO WEAR THE MULBERRY BRAIDED BELT

Though it may be a basic, there’s more to the humble belt than mere practicality. With trousers tailored to fit our shape without needing to be cinched these days, we’re using the belt to inspire a little creativity in our outfits instead. To celebrate the arrival of the Mulberry Braided Belt in three colours in store now at Robinsons, we’re sharing three new ways to wear them for an instant new season style update that won’t break the bank. Belts were seen on the streets and runways of every SS18 Fashion Week; here’s all the inspiration you need to add them to your accessories arsenal.

LOW AND LOOSE

Blame the boho revival because belts worn low and loose are back. The casual leather braid of the Mulberry style is ideal for belting floaty summer tunics and shirt dresses at the hips, so take it down a notch or three from the waist and go a little lower for some Seventies chic.

OVER OUTERWEAR

We’re all about pieces that make this awkward transitional dressing phase a little more effortless and belts are capable of taking the modest knitted cardigan from frumpy to fashionable. Belt your cardigan open an inch or two to reveal the layers beneath and create a flattering panel that will draw the eye down and make you look long and lean.  

ALL TIED UP

There’s something about a knotted leather belt that looks incredibly nonchalant in a way you’d think only the cool girls could carry off. It’s actually one of the easiest looks to carry off and whether looped through white jeans with a grey jumper slung on top for weekends or belted over Laura Orchant’s painterly silk scarves, a tied tan belt will quite literally put a new twist on the way your wear other pieces in your wardrobe.

Shop the Mulberry Braided Belt in store now at Robinsons. We’re open Good Friday 9:30am – 5:30pm, Saturday 31st March 9:30am – 5.30pm and Easter Monday 11:00am – 4pm, plus we have FREE parking available right outside the store.

Happy Easter fashion bunnies!
