As a new season arrives, we can’t help but dream of warmer climates as we begin planning our next summer getaway. As we scour Air BnB for our dream destination it also makes sense to take a look at the best fashion pieces to invest in for 2018.
We can’t help but swoon over Long Tall Sally’s latest drop which encompasses the first feelings of summer with playful prints, bright colours and chic new workwear pieces to carry you through to the warmer weather.
Well-known as the number one choice for tall women worldwide, Long Tall Sally lovingly constructs each and every garment tailoring hips, hems and pockets to suit their beautiful customers. Let us take you through some of their latest additions which we’re certain you’ll want to pick up in time for summer.
For a pop of colour, we love this soft jersey fluted sleeve dress which creates a hip-skimming silhouette and has a subtle side split. Ideal for a laid-back stroll along the beach before cocktails at the bar.
This tropical print bow detail sundress is just the ticket for a more formal day trip, and fully lined pure cotton material makes it comfortable enough to wear for hours on end. The front design is simple whilst the statement bow draws attention to the cut out back.
For a breathable, everyday look we love this green jersey cold shoulder top. It’s been updated for the new season to boast a flattering fit, great length and is perfect for squeezing into hand luggage for those girly weekend getaways.
If you’re looking for something a little more on trend, you need to add this bardot frill stripe top to your collection. Generous oversize frills make a statement look yet the stripes are classic and wearable. This looks great with jeans but really takes centre stage when paired with this stunning, chino skirt – a true favourite with Long Tall Sally customers. Great for every age, this A-line fit also has conveniently placed pockets which never go out of style.
If you need a lightweight dress to take you from day to night you can’t go wrong with this ruched waist jersey maxi dress. The relaxed fit makes it easy to wear for any occasion and the floral red print just demands a week at the beach if you ask us!
The most classic item of all is this pure linen sleeveless shirt, a staple in any woman’s wardrobe no matter what the season. This timeless piece can be worn with jeans or cargo shorts during the day and tucked into some wide leg palazzo pants in the evening for an elegant look. Alternatively, wear with power stretch legging jean which refuses to sag or lose shape, giving you the sleekest summer silhouette.
The must-have workwear item of the collection is this pocket detail skirt in the shade russet. The high quality fabric, flat feature pockets, removable D-ring belt and front zip and split all add up to a unique yet wearable piece which will keep you cool at the office.
For the rainy days which will inevitably come, make sure you’re prepared with a statement coat. We are obsessed with this gingham lined trench coat in olive green, which has all the makings of a transitional piece to last the rest of the year. Wear to work over a simple black dress or with boyfriend jeans and a soft white t-shirt for that off-duty chic.
This casual jumpsuit in navy is perfect for relaxed summer days, features pocket detailing and gorgeous gold buttons. Looks great with flat sandals at your family barbecue and even better with some killer heels and a cream leather biker jacket for a night on the town.
This cooling longline tencel shirt dress will see you through the season come rain or shine. Its floaty fit means its cool enough to wear on a city day trip, and the burnt orange shade makes it bang on trend for 2018.
To complete the look add these rope trim heel sandals in tan, a modern take on the nautical trend. These faux leather sandal with glossy finish have an easy to wear low block heel, leather lining and rope tie.
If you’re more of a trouser gal, then swap your dress for these micro print tapered trousers. The soft drapey fabric with contrast side stripe make them easy to beat and the elasticated drawcord waistband is an obvious plus point!
