The heatwave continues – bring on the Super Shirt
In typical British style, we’re all a bit ‘over’ the heatwave. One of the warmest summers on record and we’ve had enough of it. Partly because our infrastructure can’t cope with relentlessly high temperatures, (last week a colleague and I ended up spending our lunch break in the freezer section of a local supermarket). And partly because we’ve exhausted our wardrobe options. I know that some businesses have relaxed their dress codes but there was a man wandering around inside the pub the other evening without shoes on. Really. Like children after a long hot day in the park, our faces are sticky, our clothes are dishevelled and we have all gone a bit feral. As the heatwave continues, I’ve been raiding my holiday box for bits and pieces to combine with the not-so-basic basics. This summer’s style hero has to be the Super Shirt. Worn with loose trousers, Harem pants or a la Carolina Herrera with a statement skirt – it’s a cool and easy way to add a little decorum to a scorching hot day.
If you’re looking for an end-of-summer wardrobe pick-me-up, Arket has up to 70% off in the sale and rails full of oversized shirts. Uniqlo is another good option for reasonably priced cotton and for silk shirts try & Other Stories. Go up a size or two for extra Waft Factor.
