Summer is almost here. Thoughts of longer, relaxed days start to become tantalisingly real for those with a break booked. Whether you're escaping to the beach or staying put, our wardrobes change. We look for clothes that are more relaxed; that are cool and comfortable to wear.
Styling You The Label's 2022 Beach Edit is a capsule for effortless summer dressing. Breathable fabrics of linen, jersey and technical have been crafted into "one and done" dresses and separates that can be mixed and matched.
The Beach Edit: available Tuesday, November 29, 12noon AEST
Our signature silk-like, easy-care technical fabric comes in our best-selling Cameo top in black and Maria split-hem pant in stone. Maria has had a slight tweak to its design. The waistband is thinner, allowing for more stretch in the waist and there's a slight increase in the rise. This is a pant best suited to those who like to wear a pant lower towards the hips.
We've taken our popular luxe jersey t-shirt fabric and created the Beth maxi t-shirt dress in a stunning navy marle colour. This is the type of dress you'll throw on over a swimsuit and not take off all day. No judgement here if you also wear her to bed.
Our Valyn spaghetti strap maxi dress is back by popular demand and available in sizes 6-20 for the first time. I lived in this dress last summer and during our holiday in Fiji. She's just so stylishly easy and cool to wear.
The Andre drop-waist linen dress in white is a new style, designed to offer a relaxed dress-up/dress-down option for summer. This is crafted from a linen/cotton blend, so the design isn't see through and is a little more friendly in the crushing department.
Everyone loves a striped shirt and the new Amanda relaxed linen shirt in hot pink/white or black/natural stripe is crafted with a denser linen fabric from our block coloured linen pieces. The width of the upper arms has been relaxed in fit, making this an option for those who might otherwise have to skip this style of shirt.
Team the shirts back with our new shorts style - the Tess linen jogger short in navy and black. This fully elasticated style is a slightly shorter, more casual short alternative to our Bec technical shorts.
