So it’s now officially the start to the Summer and what a beautiful one it’s been so far – all this sunshine and heat has definitely got me thinking about my summer wardrobe which has been decidedly lacking in the right summer staples. I am definitely a winter girl, I have already stockpiled 4 Autumn and Winter coats ….. but this summer I have just felt hot hot hot all the time! I’m sure you’re with me on this – so how to keep cool in Summer? In previous blogs I have been banging on about how linen is the best fabric for warm weather – and here at Maison Brocante we have been busy launching beautiful new linen dresses and bags – timeless pieces that fit with our ‘buy for life’ ethos.
So I decided it’s high time I achieved my own capsule Summer wardrobe before I melt completely
So here’s introducing our new Linen slouch pants! Featured here on the blog is the sample – made in natural stonewashed linen, milk white linen and grey linen. Of course I have been test driving the first sample – I have literally not had them off. Why? Apart from being super comfy, they are literally the only cool thing about me!!! It really is true folks, linen is officially THE best fabric for hot weather! My legs have been lovely and cool whilst the rest of me has been melting!!
So here starts the capsule linen collection by Maison Brocante – timeless French linen clothing and homeware that will take you through Summer to Autumn and throughout the seasons
We have been making our Summer Linen Prairie dresses for a while and they continue to be so popular – so easy to wear, loose and comfortable – currently available in light and dark grey linen on the webshop – an easy colour transition from Summer to Autumn https://www.maisonbrocante.co.uk/shop/100-linen-prairie-dress-charcoal-grey/
These will also be available in a beautiful new warmer linens, dusky grey and raisin, ready for when the cooler climes arrive
Our new linen slouch pants will also be available in these beautiful colours, ready for layering with a linen tunic or sweater
