Live Action Getup: The perfect, bright summer afternoon

Colorful summer style.

There are so many reasons to love summer: bright mornings, weekends at the beach, good vibes all around, and of course: experimental dressing. We don’t know what it’s all about in the summer, but take a look around on the street and you’ll notice that almost everyone becomes a better version of themselves when the sun is out – more relaxed, more free and more themselves true me And that also applies to how we dress.

Hot mornings and balmy afternoons mean we’re not focused on choosing an outfit that has to work twice as hard as keeping us warm as well as looking stylish. In the summer, the only thing our outfit needs to do is look good. And under the high, clear sun, every color in your look shines.

So whether you’re heading to the market, a lunch date, the gelato stand or even work, no layers required, we’re free to feel good and look good with ease. And it gives us more room to fall back on shades we love – which is why we love this fun, colorful look so much.

Style it for outdoor events like engagement parties and baby showers, dinner with friends, or smarter vacation days or nights where you want to prioritize comfort and style while still looking presentable.

Looks best on a summer afternoon

Have you ever noticed how often you see red and white together? Gingham picnic blankets, striped deckchairs, strawberries and cream… It’s a summer color match made in heaven. In another, darker look, white jeans would be a bright, eye-catching piece. But here the bold red trousers are toned down, with black accessories acting as the perfect neutral detail.

ONE long-sleeved linen shirt, denim jeans and suede loafers might not seem like a revolutionary combination when you break it down to its basics. But these timeless and versatile pieces come together in unexpectedly interesting ways when we start playing with shape and color.

Linen shirts offer the ideal light, airy texture for warm afternoons, and you can wear yours as loose, open or rolled up as you like to suit your own summer style. Paired with white jeans, linen has a slightly preppy edge reminiscent of yacht clubs and drinks on the Riviera – a vibe that is only enhanced further with a pair of sophisticated dark suede loafers.

That’s why we love an elevated smart relaxed dress code – it’s the perfect excuse for us to try an interesting, summer-worthy style.

The weave of linen means it is able to absorb up to ⅕ of its weight in moisture without feeling damp – making it perfect fabric for warm days when you may be worried about the dreaded underarm patches. Being a natural fabric, it also holds color better than synthetics, which is why this bold red linen shirt looks so good.

White jeans
