FRINGE FESTIVAL

The movement and texture of fringing can breathe life into an otherwise unremarkable outfit. If you’re not feeling the boho vibe, try these smart fringed pieces instead.

LOVE STORY

We simply can’t wait for & Other Stories to open its first Dublin store this summer, so we’re shopping the brand’s cool 1970s vibe online right now. Retro prints adorn everything from headscarves to handbags, and accessories come in throwback textures such as tactile suede.

IN YOUR FINERY

If you’re tying yourself up in knots trying to figure out the rules of summer tailoring, take a look at Finery London’s super-chic layered looks. Simply swap the boots for an open-toe sandal, and you’ll look achingly cool come the warm weather.
Embroidered shirt, €82; wrap cami top, €44; peg trousers, €69

Summer is the ideal time to inject a bit of fun into your weekend wear. Irish designer Natalie B Coleman’s exclusive limited edition collection of printed sweaters, T-shirts and T-shirt dresses for Arnotts will do just that.
