The Browns Fashion Summer Checklist: Summer Staples

Looking to refresh your wardrobe this summer? Browns Fashion has you covered.

We are practically euphoric as we rediscover the joy of dressing up for the litany of plans now peppering our diaries once again. Every outing is an opportunity to dress up, and a worthy excuse to add a piece or two to our summer wardrobes. Browns – the one-stop luxury fashion emporium for the smartest edit of stand-out pieces and effortless staples – can cover outfitting for all your summertime plans: seaside staycations, garden barbecues, and even thrice-delayed weddings. From fresh, emerging talent to established names, Browns has the chicest curation of pieces to ‘add to basket’ or snap up IRL from their recently opened glossy flagship store in the heart of Mayfair.

Whether you’re yearning for a breezy summer dress, an Instagrammable swimsuit, or an investment accessory to cherish for years to come, below, we’ve collated our edit of the hottest summer staples available at Browns Fashion.

In Partnership with Browns.


Summer Dresses

Nothing can manifest a sunshine state of mind quite like an effortless throw-on frock, and at Browns, there truly is a dress for every occasion. Reformation is synonymous with excellent floral dresses, and this blue and white midi is no exception; dress it up with a strappy sandal to be the best-dressed wedding guest. Zimmermann’s maxi dress – in charming multicoloured stripes – has serious seaside vacation energy and will be worn on repeat. Pattern not your thing? This Three Graces shirred dress is an effortless go-to, showing black very much deserves a place in your summer wardrobe.


Chic Swimwear

Whether you are planning a UK staycation, spending an afternoon at the spa, or venturing further afield, new swimwear is a summer staple. When it comes to deciding on your chosen iteration there are endless possibilities – opt for unexpected cuts and intricate details to make a statement. Rendered from super-stretchy nylon, Hunza G‘s one-size-fits-all sizing model takes the faff out of swimwear shopping, and this mismatched bikini is as serotonin-boosting as it comes. Channel poolside glamour in Alexandra Miro‘s one piece with a super flattering waist belt, whilst Frankies Bikinis X Browns clever separates come in various cuts to suit your body shape. Just add sun.


Statement Blouses

A statement blouse is a sartorial quick fix. We’re now masters at dressing from the waist up, thanks to 12 months of Zoom meetings, so it’s time to get brazen with print IRL. We love the painterly florals and relaxed borrowed-from-the-boys silhouette of this Rejina Pyo shirt, whilst the frothy frills of this ultra-feminine Matilda Goad top present points of intrigue. A Breton T-shirt is endlessly classic, and we love the monochrome stripes of this More Joy tee. Simply pair with your favourite denim – or a slinky bias-cut midi skirt – to complete the look.


The Separates

If micro-shorts aren’t your thing, fear not. A more grown-up silhouette of denim is trending for SS21, such as this pair of A-line shorts by MOTHER, that cut just above the knee. We champion the mood-boosting power of fashion – take Zimmermann’s tropical print shorts which will transport you to sunnier climes, even if you are simply lounging in your garden. Looking for a hard-working piece for when the heatwave hits? This Acne Studios lemon sorbet-hued maxi skirt with a crisp white vest is a winning outfit.


The Shoes

If you’re deliberating your SS21 sandal purchase, Browns’ chic edit has you covered, nailing timeless classics and trending designs. The most effortless footwear option is the flatform sandal. Crafted in buttery soft leather, this Chloé pair simply hug your foot, perfect for pounding the pavements between meetings. Similarly appealing is the gladiator sandal, which has made an unexpected return for SS21. We love this Valentino pair, peppered with signature studs that add an edgy twist to feminine summer dresses. If you’re ready to re-embrace heels, Wandler’s signature mules are suitably glam, with a chic-yet-comfortable mid-heel.


The Bags

If you didn’t splurge on an investment piece during lockdown, here are some new season bags to consider. NEOUS‘ sculptural accessories are like works of art, and this Jupiter tote is the definition of conversation-starting fashion, and the perfect bag to hail the return to the office. For revenge dressing, a micro bag like this Valentino cross-body in a zesty hue is a worthy contender – the shimmering gold hardware is suitably luxe too. When it comes to occasion dressing, this Rosantica clutch ticks a lot of boxes: wicker details, satin ruffles, tassels, and crystal embellishments will incite glances of admiration.


The Finishing Touches

A signature pair of sunglasses should be top of your wish list. We love the chunky tortoiseshell frame of these Nanushka sunglasses – the retro, square silhouette is universally flattering. Statement party earrings are just what we want to be wearing to usher in summer soirées. These Anni Lu pearl hoop earrings are an instant outfit transformer, carrying you from day day-to-night. You may already own a straw hat, but it’s time for a haute upgrade with this Chloé logo-emblazoned iteration to cajole the sun into making an appearance.
