The Whiter Shades Of Pale

Paula Style - - Gitte’s Favourites -

There is noth­ing pre­cious about sum­mer’s new, yet clas­si­cally inspired take on shades of white from chalk to sand. There is an el­e­gance to these clothes and a wearable ease to the sil­hou­ettes. The pair­ing of pale shades em­braces all things beau­ti­ful at the beach. Sim­ply add a touch of tan leather and an or­ganic ac­ces­sory to pro­vide the modernism of a new sea­son.

El­e­gant yet with a de­li­ciously nat­u­ral feel to it, the Side Tuck Skirt 5855 in River Linen lends it­self to light­weight sum­mer dress­ing, worn here with a Mi­cromo­dal Side Split Long Sin­glet 2828.

It doesn’t get much cooler than the Godet Skirt 5815 in Crushed Linen, an airy and el­e­gant weave. Its non­cha­lance and slightly rum­pled aes­thetic is a hall­mark of sum­mer style. Team with a Mi­cromo­dal Sleeve­less Frill Top 5775 for a truly fem­i­nine sil­hou­ette.

When the mer­cury starts to rise, reach for the un­de­ni­ably cool Roll Sleeve, But­ton Front Dress 5831 in a Soft Linen Blend. Add vis­ual in­ter­est with the nat­u­ral Leather, Two Tone Waist Belt 5827 fea­tur­ing Tan trim and Gold buckle.

Cool enough to wear to the beach, the Neru Trimmed Shirt 5707 in Em­broi­dered Cot­ton adds tex­tu­ral in­ter­est to any out­fit. Worn over the su­per­flat­ter­ing Stretch Cot­ton Waisted Slim 7/8 Pants 5819, they’ll take you from one sea­son to the next.

Linen has its own nat­u­ral charm and gives cool com­fort to the Godet Skirt 5774. Sim­ply add a Shirred Tube 5412 in Su­perfine Mi­cro­jer­sey un­der the transsea­sonal Chif­fon and Satin Hooded Coat Shirt 5813 for smart lay­er­ing.

Play with tex­tures this sum­mer and stay cool in a Tech Mesh Top 5711 over a Mi­cro­jer­sey Short Shirred Tube 5411. Com­ple­ment these nat­u­ral tones with the Clas­sic Mi­cro­jer­sey Waisted Cig­a­rette Pant 2099 in Sand.

70’s inspired, the “boob-tube” has be­come the per­fect un­der shirt, un­der jacket gar­ment.

Clas­sic and so ver­sa­tile, the Stretch Cot­ton Waisted Slim 7/8 Pant 5819 worn with a Sleeve­less Layer Front Top 5792 in Su­perfine Mi­cro­jer­sey will be­come a wardrobe favourite.

Ac­ces­sorise the Zip Front Dress 5853 in Su­perfine Mi­cro­jer­sey for evenings in black or add a floppy hat at the beach if you go for the white op­tion.

A ro­man­tic vi­sion in two linen shades be­comes the per­fect so­lu­tion for sum­mer wed­dings, Christ­mas Eve on the beach or sim­ply the pack­able piece for re­sort dress­ing.

Feel su­per fem­i­nine in a Vis­cose Jersey & Chif­fon Draped Layer Dress 5857.
