Here’s to enjoying summer 2022 in style!
What To Wear This Summer?
When it comes to summer fashion, looking (and staying) cool is a number one priority, and one of the easiest ways to keep things chill is by picking outfits in lightweight and breathable fabrics.
Look out for cotton, linen and silk fabrics and choose loose-fitting and baggy styles for easy comfort. Pick styles in light colours like beige, nudes and pastel shades to avoid attracting too much heat.
Our George For Good collection features stylish pieces made from responsibly sourced cotton (thanks to our partnership with The Better Cotton Initiative), just look out for the handy logo.
Stylish Summer Dresses
When putting together a summer shopping list, one of the first things that comes to mind is dresses!
Our collection is bursting with bright and beautiful holiday dresses and summer dresses for every get-together. For sunny days out, women’s maxi dresses will be calling your name, and when it’s time to sunbathe (yay!), women’s sundresses are our go-to.
We suggest investing in around 3–5 dresses and choosing a mixture of colours, prints and hemlines to create a solid start to your summer collection. Floral dresses, midi dresses and maxi dresses are all summertime seasoned pros!
All-In-One Jumpsuits & Playsuits
Jumpsuits and playsuits tick box after box. Easy to throw on, simple to dress up or style down and super comfy. These ‘one-and-done’ outfits are ideal for having on reserve for those days you just can’t decide what to wear.
We’re loving ALL the prints this season and whatever this summer has in store for you, there’s a polka dot, Aztec or floral print number for you to live your best life in!
Depending on the occasion (and weather!), you can rock your all-in-one outfit with a pair of sandals or sneakers – canvas trainers are totes a vibe, right?
Chic Shirts & Blouses
A white shirt is our summer wardrobe staple. They are oh-so-versatile, can be worn with endless outfits and layered effortlessly. Drape yours over a matching two-piece suit, with a pair of jeans or team with a satin slip skirt… the list goes on and on.
Not only can they be reworked time and time and again with your summer wardrobe, but white shirts are also a fab trans-seasonal staple you can layer with jumpers in the winter or with a lightweight jacket in the spring – is this a capsule wardrobe piece we’re spotting?!
Heading to a summer soirée? Pull together a chic ensemble like a sateen shirt or summer blouse, skinny fit trousers and wedged sandals – dreamy.
Staple Shorts & Skirts
Welcome the sunny season with summer shorts and skirts! Our exclusive women’s shorts edit is packed with trusty denim numbers, casual sweat shorts and printed midi skirts.
Channel some retro-cool in tennis shorts or get set for festival season with cycling shorts and denim shorts.
HELLO skirt season! Whatever your preferred hemline, there’s a trendy pick for you with colourful mini, midi and maxi skirts. Complete your look with a pair of chunky or flatform sandals for stylish steps all summer long.
Lightweight Linen Trousers
For a laidback look, pop on a pair of airy women’s summer trousers. Ideal for everything from lounging on the beach to BBQs and picnics galore – we’re comin’ for ya!
Go mellow with yellow or embrace all things bold and beautiful with tropical green styles. We’ve got tons of full-length and cropped trousers to keep you cool during warmer weather.
Once you’ve found a fab pair, grab some snazzy shades and a summer hat, and lap up the sunshine!
Step-Up In So-Sleek Sandals
These sandals are made for walkin’ (or in this case for chilling at the beach and beyond…). There’s no doubt women’s sandals are a summer footwear must-have. Say HELLO to summer and step into a pair of flip flops, comfy mules or strappy sandals.
For evening events, heeled sandals and flatform sandals in classic colours like tan, cream or black are a dreamy choice to wear with all of your ‘fits.
When it’s time to dip in and out of the pool, flip flops are a fuss-free (and waterproof) choice, and quilted sandals will complement your daytime dress seamlessly.
Iconic Summer Accessories
Add the finishing touches to your collection with a handful of summer accessories. It goes without saying, finding a pair of sunglasses that frame your face will have you feeling fabulous all summer long.
On particularly hot days (whoop whoop!), a sun hat will bless you with some much-needed shade, and for when it’s a bit nippy, a denim jacket or trench coat will beat the breeze.
When you’re thinking about summer jewellery, less is more. Be ready to have a T-bar necklace, small hoop earrings and a stacking ring set on rotation this season.
