Take a first look at Courtney Smith’s summer edit for Littlewoods Ireland

Take a first look at Courtney Smith’s summer edit for Littlewoods Ireland

With the mercury rising, and hints of some proper summer sunshine peaking through, our summer wardrobe planning has been propelled into overdrive. Easy-to-wear separates and prints are on our minds and stylist Courtney Smith’s brand new edit for Littlewoods Ireland has these two attributes and more.

Summer dressing is all about ease. Hot temperatures mean well -thought-out layering is a no go; most of the time all we really want is a slip-on-and-off-you-go outfit. The much-loved stylist has curated a collection for the retailer, which will make day-to-day dressing effortlessly stylish over the coming months.

Donned as a ‘summer goals’ collection, it’s a wonderful mix of feminine fancy and city edge. Unexpectedly, denim plays a major role in the edit. A classic denim jacket is given a revival of sorts with a frill twist while floral co-ords take pride of place but are re-worked in double denim.

Yellow, the colour of sunshine and eternal optimism, shines brightly throughout. The standout piece is a yellow floral print maxi dress, which is the perfect day-to-night piece when paired with sandals or strappy heels.

The real beauty of this edit is its separates. The co-ords on offer allow you to mix and match, meaning these pieces will go a lot further than just one wear. The striped linen two-piece is a favourite, and individually both the top and skirt will work on their own when paired with jeans or a plain white tee respectively.

As a stylist, Courtney understands the power of accessories. A belt or layered jewellery can change the dynamic of an outfit drastically and throughout she has expertly complemented the looks. Wide belts, on-trend straw bags, tortoiseshell sunglasses, statement earrings and French Riveria style boater hats elevate each look to something new, fresh and exciting.

The edit is now available to shop on Littlewoods now.
