Summertime – and at Luna, the livin’ is easy
In fact, Luna styles are easy to wear all year round and now the sun is up it’s time to rock summer’s coolest looks.
Linen is a major player this season and we have plenty of choices, including from our favourite Italian fashion houses. As always, many of our tops and tunics are a flattering ‘go with the flow’ look, especially great if fitted is a no-go for you. In store are gorgeous long-line polka-dot linen tunics in dove grey, sage green, navy, red, mustard and hot pink – which also come with a flower pattern as an alternative. We’re also lovin’ the linen over-shirts in various shades of blue, dotted with pretty stars. All these are just £45–£48.
We’ve got plenty of more traditional length tops too, including cool cotton ones with pin-tuck detail on the sleeves, which come in coral, cobalt and essential summer white (£45). A cowl neck is flattering on just about everyone, and Miss Sugar’s sleeveless tops (£40 and in duck-egg blue, navy and hot pink) are just right if you dare to bare your arms. A similar neckline but on a tunic-style top with a longer sleeve – and gorgeous embroidered leaf detail – is another winner; these come in baby blue, navy, summer green and white, priced at £50. Cover-ups for cooler days include waterfall cardigans and open-knit shrugs … and much more besides.
But there’s more to Luna than tops! Check out our linen midi skirts in grey and white at £45 that fall softly and beautifully, or how about our casual but detailed draw-string track pants by Suzy D at £48, in grey, navy and soft pink?
A simple linen shift dress is perfect for keeping you looking and feeling cool from day to evening: check out the smart plain ones at £65 or the more casual spotted ones with slouchy pocket detail at £38, which come in black, sage green, soft pink and mustard – and make a brilliant beach cover-up too!
And remember to top-off your holiday look with a pair of stunning shades and a pretty straw bag, all here at Luna.
Pssst! Top-tip! Luna’s mid-season sale is now on and there are bargains galore to be had – but be quick as we are making space for more super summer stock!
Baby, it’s cold outside …
… but that’s great in our book because it’s a chance to cosy up in gorgeous Luna jumpers and tops.
Knits are big this season, in more ways than one! Make sure you’re primed for the cold snap with one of Luna’s gorgeous oversized pieces. Over jeans, jeggings, leggings or cute skirts and thick tights they look chic while keeping you warm. And unless it’s raining, snowing or completely freezing, with plenty of layers underneath an oversized jumper can often mean forgoing being bundled up in a coat.
V-necks, crew-necks, round-necks, batwing sleeves, dropped shoulders, plain or patterned – whatever your preferred style, there is sure to be something to suit you at Luna this season. Our heart and star-patterned jumpers are practically marching out the door, so popular are they proving. One of our faves is the Miss Sugar 50% cashmere/50% wool jumpers; they’re soft luxurious … and priced at £55–£65 simply amazing value. And if you want to add a little sparkle to a dull winter day, as Luna-lovers know we always have pieces in stock that match that criteria.
The ultimate pop-over is, of course, the poncho – the perfect extra layer that is practical, comfortable and stylish to boot. At Luna we have a whole range of these one-size-fits all beauties – plain, frilled, embossed and, for an extra hint of glamour, faux fur and suede. We’re lovin’ the Jayley Cashmere-blend faux fur poncho (just £65); fully lined, it makes a stunning finishing touch to any outfit, day or night.
Luna jumpers, tops and ponchos come in a range of colourways, with soft pinks, pale greys, mustard and forest green being particular headliners, as is charcoal – the very flattering ‘new black’.
There’s a lot of cold weather still to come, so if you buy only one item this season, make it a Luna winter-warmer.
