If there is one thing I’ve learned during the lockdown, it is that life is too short to wear synthetic fibers. And I’m not the only one feeling this way. So, here come cotton and linen! Why? Well, they’re both super breathable, soft and are all natural fabrics. Not only do they have an incredibly high absorbency, but are also eco friendly. Therefore, when in doubt, always choose natural over synthetic. In fact, I can’t think of something more stylish and comfy to wear than a oversized white linen shirt! Can you?

You can never have enough stripes.

There’s nothing more timeless, nor classier than a Breton stripe T-shirt. Furthermore, fashion houses like Céline, Miu Miu, Jason Wu and Awake Mode featured new versions of the classic shirts in their spring/summer 2021 collections. However, the history of the piece dates back to 1858 when it became the official uniform of the French Navy. Wondering how many stripes the original tee had? 21, symbolizing each one of Napoleon’s victories. Ever since, the Breton shirt has been proving versatility to our wardrobes and we can’t stop falling in love with it. What’s even better than a striped shirt, is a whole striped look. Just like our favourite vintage queen – Pernille Rosenkilde. Steal her outfit now!

Yes, that’s right. The “ugly shoe trend” is still here. From Teva to Birkenstock and Dr Martens Fisherman Sandal, the big comfort sandals have come out the pandemic like the heroes of summer footwear. We know that you see them everywhere – from your favourite Instagram influencers to runaways. For instance, Jason Wu and Boss brought back the velcro sandals in their spring summer 2021 runaways. Because these shoes are made for walking shoes (and that’s just what they’ll do). Therefore they’re ideal for those of you who are still avoiding public transport. Additionally, they will transition smoothly to fall when paired with socks. No matter if you choose the traditional models or the ones with chunky tractor-like soles.
