Ah, the classic British summer. As we put this post together, the month of June is drawing to an end- which, apparently means one thing: grey skies, digging scarves back out from the bottom of our wardrobes and lots of drizzle thrown in for good measure. While the weather might just sort itself out by the time this post goes live (yeah right), here’s our pick of vintage cover ups to help keep the chill at bay.

The Kaftan
You know when you see an item of clothing that’s a little bit quirky and you fall head over heels? That’s how we feel about our Kalua kaftan. Its statement colours, geometric shapes and sweet ribbon tie come together to create one of the most playful cover ups we’ve seen in a while- and it’s light enough to be whipped away into a bag when the sun (finally) makes an appearance.

The Denim Jacket
Our sunshine yellow Diesel denim jacket gives this season’s denim trend a summertime twist. It’s all about the details with this piece, with its sweet floral embroidery and metal collar wings adding a feminine touch to its oversized shape.

The Oversized Shirt
Taking cues from seventies icon Jane Birkin, we love throwing on an oversized shirt over a feminine summer dress. The leaf print on our Hazel shirt, edged with white loop stitching, makes it the perfect piece to team with a white dress, either worn loose or knotted at the waist. In a much cooler hue, our sky blue Lani shirt looks sweet not only with high waisted jeans, but worn over a dress too. (And, as if its versatility wasn't enough to earn it some serious style points, did we mention it’s only £10?)
