quick straw poll at Jigsaw HQ shows that about three quarters of us are wearing sandals. It’s official: summer is here. This time last year, we were at the start of a three-month heatwave. The jury is still out on what summer 2019 will look like, but our collection is a banker of summer staples for work and play.
Let’s start with play. Holidays are a brilliant excuse to wear dresses, day and night. Linen maxis are the most versatile: throw them over swimwear for the beach, then swap flip flops for sliders or espadrilles and you’re ready for sundowners. The same approach works for our collection of kaftans this year. Our head of marketing has been spotted wearing her hand-embroidered version in the office, such is its versatility. Summer favourites like broderie anglaise is found on shirts and dresses, while shorts feature wrap-fronts and jumpsuits offer laidback elegance.
And if you’re not going on holiday but stuck at work? A linen trouser or short suit might go a little way to making you feel better.
