Fashion fades, Spirit style stays
Joining us at Spirit of Christmas Fair in November, we have an abundance of independent fashion brands filling the halls with stunning clothing and accessories that are simply must-haves in our wardrobes.
But clothes shopping isn’t just for Christmas... certainly not! That’s why we’ve picked out some of our favourite brands that have beautiful additions in their summer collections...
Ladies - these are for you!
A gingham midi dress is an essential summer outfit and we’ve found the perfect one from Fig Cashmere! Next up, Country Connections have this beautiful polka-dot patterned silk scarf - a great way to dress up a simple outfit. Shirt dresses - they’re flattering for lots of body shapes, nipping you in the waist with a belt, and we just love this cotton piece from Creative Dezigns.
Made from 100% Mongolian cashmere with ribbed detailing, the new Abigail Rib Jumper from Cashmere & Cotton is beautifully soft and ever so stylish, ideal for those chilly summer evenings. This delicate embroidered cream blouse from Laurie and Jules is fabulous. Dress it with jeans and trainers to look effortlessly chic! Before we know it, Autumn will arrive. And that’s where Gabriela Rose comes in with their glamorous coat collection. You’re sure to look a million dollars when you add this striking regency coat to any outfit worn!
Now let’s not forget about those all important accessories…
We spotted these safari cow print sandals from Welligogs - a funky addition to a summer closet! Spirit of Christmas has so many beautiful jewellery brands joining us, too many to mention - but this gold apollo green coin cuff caught our eye. This statement accessory from Ashiana is sure to glam up your outfit! Made from British leather here in the UK, Padfield make the most amazing handbags with a broad range of styles and colours to suit all outfits.
Gentleman - we’ve found you a thing or two!
Whether you’re dressing smart for work or heading to a wedding, Fleet London have a great range of shirts made from high quality sustainable cotton. For a sophisticated style or those cold country walks, the reversible gilet collection from Illan are great, they don’t just look wonderful, they are sure to keep you warm as they’re made from cashmere too..
For that more casual, rugged look, the classic linen shirt collection from Dundas are perfect for summer days, keeping you cool with a touch of relaxed style. If you wear glasses (whether that’s spectacles or sunglasses) MONC have an amazing variety of trendy and modern frames, sourced and made across the seas in Italy by a small team of craftspeople, with a strong focus on producing sustainable and ethical products. New for summer 2021, Flax London’s ‘Easy’ linen shorts are ideal for those hot summer days - with breathable material and an elasticated waistband for sheer comfort.
Children’s brands for you to look through...
If you’re on the search for cute but quality-made nightwear for little ones, The Pyjama House is where you should be looking. They’re made from Egyptian fine cotton, and have amazing adult editions available too! Designed in London, with a funky and unique style, Kayla Kids have a wonderful children’s range of clothes including this colourful little tutu to brighten up a child’s outfit - it’s perfect for parties, making them feel extra special and sparkly!
