The Classic

Past couple of days suddenly feel like summer. Temperatures are rising and everything smells like holiday in the sun. Hot summer weather, however, can be a tricky season sartorially speaking. It requires comfort above all else, because who wants the fuss of intricate necklines and novelty details, when the humidity is following your every move?

This is the time when I fall back on the classic white t-shirt and jeans combination. Be it cut-offs or semi-boyfriend jeans, v or crew-neck, the right items never fail. As with all items that are known for their simplicity, the smallest details matter. My current favourite is a loose crew-neck tshirt in softest cotton. It drapes beautifully in all the right places, without looking overtly constructed. It’s easely paired with black jeans and brogues, tucked behind a leather belt, or with cut-offs and sandals, for the required trips to the beach.

  1. Very evocative. You’re making me very nostalgic for summer. it’s been 8-12 degrees C this past week (not to mention the indignities of winter rain+ windchill factor) and it feels like summer was years ago..XS

    • We had the worst summer ever this past year (so much rain and relatively low temperatures), that these first days of summer weather actually evoked nostalgia for a proper summer holiday. I suppose the summer just has that quality.

      I hope your weather improves soon!
