Summer season outfit inspiration: part 2

It feels so good to say that summer is here at last. Let’s hope it’s here to stay because the number of outdoor events on the Feather & Stitch calendar is growing exponentially. This week I’m focusing on the more relaxed events we’re attending because putting a stylish yet casual outfit together requires the same careful consideration as a major social occasion, so today we’re drawing the fine line between being over or under done.

We’re really looking forward to the school Sports Day at the end of June; call it our competitive nature but we want to win style points well as the adult egg and spoon race. To wit we are eyeing the delicious Des Petits Hauts strappy silk dresses in a watermelon or star print and our flat Billi Bi sandals (we didn’t want to do the wheelbarrow race anyway). Add a cropped jacket or longline cardi if it’s a cool day.

This summer we’re also heading to a family friendly festival with a group of friends and all our children in tow. I toyed with the idea of wearing a bohemian dress but the reality is a pair of relaxed DL1961 boyfriend jeans and a Rails sleeveless Britt shirt are going to be far more practical on the day and considerably easier to launder after the event (insert ice-cream spills and hot dog stains here). Speaking of practicality, I’m going to pair this outfit with the leather sky blue Liebeskind Biggi bag; it’s zippered, has oodles of space and tassles. What more could a festival-going mum ask for?

Lastly we’re planning a few day trips and picnics throughout the summer holidays and need an outfit that can be styled any which way, which is why I’m choosing the Des Petits Hauts Kimoli Dress for these occasions. It’s made from 100% cotton so it will be cool even on the stickiest days. The ecru colour tones beautifully with a hint of tan, plus it layers beautifully over skinny jeans. Put simply, it’s a great all-rounder.

Outfit of the week – spring monochrome


We all have our favourite black pieces in our wardrobe, a little black dress, a pair of jeans, a top that suits every occasion. But come springtime black can feel a little heavy, a bit out of place next to landscapes dotted with jewel coloured crocus and bright sunny daffodils; all of a sudden stepping out in your favourite black number can make you feel like the woman that spring forgot. There’s a simple fix though, update your look with splashes of cream and white.

Des Petits Hauts has raised the bar for wearable feminine tailoring this season. All the pieces in the Des Petits Hauts collection at Feather & Stitch tie together and can be mixed and matched to suit your mood. Here Fi has layered the Kaboul blouse and Ariane cardigan over our signature DL1961 jeans. The blouse is long sleeved and made from 100% cotton so it is perfect for covering up in the sun this summer, it feels very light when worn due mainly to it’s loose fit and demi sheer quality. The double star details dotted all over the blouse give it a modern look that is juxtaposed by the cheese cloth appearance of the cotton. It’s a nod to the 70’s and ties in brilliantly with the 70’s revival trend that’s filtering down to the highstreet by way of high waisted flared jeans.

The Ariane cardigan will double as a summer jacket and is one of those essential pieces that every woman needs in her wardrobe. It’s the summer equivalent of winter’s leather jacket. As such we expect a lot from it, it needs to be tactile and soft, hang perfectly and add a touch of glamour to our look; all of which the Ariane cardi does with aplomb. The gold lurex thread running through the cotton brings understated glamour to this piece. Being knitted cotton it has a little stretch in the fabric so it will need a delicate wash cycle to keep it in shape and looking like new. I suggest washing it at a low temperature and then laying it out flat to dry. Here’s my tip if you have underfloor heating: lay a large pale or white towel on the floor, place the damp item on top then gently pull the fabric back into shape. Leave it there overnight and voila, dry knits with no crease marks or saggy hems.

Our Liebeskind bags have been an instant hit with our clients this season. We have only one of these tan totes left in stock which isn’t surprising considering once you touch the leather the urge to hug it is hard to resist.

It was a busy day in the boutique when we shot this look and heels simply wouldn’t have cut it, so Fi’s choice of Billi Bi footwear for this outfit is perfect. Flat, practical and comfortable while the snakeskin gives them a fashion edge.

Outfit of the week – Blush


In the second of our outfit of the week series we’re highlighting the colour of the season: blush pink. It is such a flattering neutral for all skin types and is so easy to incorporate into an outfit. It tones beautifully with grey, tan, blue, white and is in my opinion one of the most feminine colours a woman can choose without being girlish.

This is the Betise sweater by Des Petits Hauts. It’s made from 100% merino wool so it feels wonderfully soft and lightweight. The elegant drape on the back hem is extremely flattering and ensures you will never have a muffin-top moment while wearing this sweater. The peephole is cute detail too, making the upper back 2015’s unexpected erogenous zone.

BlushBackSmall1These grey wash DL1961 jeans continue to be a staple in my wardrobe. I’ve been blown away with how versatile they are. I’ve worn them consistently throughout winter and now they are pairing perfectly with spring’s new colours. We’re expecting a delivery of white DL1961 jeans very soon and I’ll be at the front of the queue for a pair.

The colour of the Liebeskind Elena shopper tones well with the neutrals in the  Des Petits Hauts collection but if you prefer not to be too matchy-matchy it also comes in a light grey. The beauty of these bags is not just in the design, you have to feel one to understand it’s full allure. The leather is so incredibly soft it renders the bag more than arm candy, it’s a tactile piece that will only get better with age.
