The weather is getting warmer and summer is on its way, so now is really the time to start preparing your summer wardrobe. Fortunately for me the majority of my wardrobe is made up of items that are better suited for a tropical climate, so this is when I truly thrive.
It can be hard, however, to find the perfect items that work with England’s bizarre and unpredictable weather, which is where transition pieces are truly key. My current favourite is this GANT linen shirt which was practically made for transitioning you through from spring into summer.
I love linen items for summer because they’re really breezy and are amazing at keeping you cool. In warm weather I want to look chic but still remain comfortable, and this shirt is truly perfect for that.
The blue stripes scream summer, and I love that the fit is a little looser to create a casual, relaxed look. I actually chose to have it a little oversized so that I could tuck/tie/layer it to my hearts content – you could wear this shirt a hundred different ways and have a look for every occasion.
The simplicity of this shirt also means it pairs really well with everything – I went for a basic pair of jeans and flats to create a casual look, but you could also wear it with shorts if the weather is warmer or pair it with a skirt for a slightly dressier look.
You could also grab this in a larger size and wear it as a beach cover-up or shirt dress – the possibilities are truly endless. I already know I’ll be getting a lot of use out of this over the next few months, it really is the perfect shirt for taking you into summer.
As you can probably tell, I’m completely obsessed with this shirt – you can get one for yourself (or just shop around on the GANT website!) here. I also have a special 15% off code for you, so there’s definitely no reason not to!
