While the sun still shines, at Luna we believe in having plenty in stock that suits the season so this month is all about staying cool in every sense of the word.
When the temperature’s rising, there is no better fabric to choose than linen. And don’t just take our word for it … a quick look in the history books will tell you our ancestors were keeping their cool in linen thousands of years ago. But we know for sure they would not have been rockin’ the bold, beautiful and downright gorgeous 21st-century colours and styles that Luna has to offer you.
First to mention are our shift dresses. We have relaxed, short-sleeved ones aplenty in a host of colours from mustard, coral and kingfisher blue to staple black, white and navy. Choose completely plain or those with button detail, and a choice of on or below the knee, to wear bare-legged or with leggings. There’s a sleeveless version too, with a strong designer in-put: drawstring hem, huge slouchy pockets and lacy back detail. All these are so stylish it’s hard to believe they’re just £45–£58.
Moving on from the plain, our polka-dot shift linen dresses – sleeveless and a loose, soft fit – are real Miss Sugar cuties. Colours include navy, soft blue, muted lime, hot pink and scorching orange … and they’re a sweet £48.
Keeping with the dotty/spotty theme, and if like us you love layers, our Sugarbabe range of tops includes a bold polka-dot under tunic with a shorter length, long-sleeve plain top as the upper layer. In colourways of navy, cobalt blue and soft pink to name but three, these are super-loose fitting and terrific value at £40.
Shorts are good news this year and we have several styles, including a flirty and flattering pure linen wide-leg pair (with sneaky jersey waistband for added comfort) – definitely worth waxing your legs for! If you prefer a flirty skirt, Miss Sugar has a similar alternative to the shorts. Look out for the shorts and skirts in navy, white and airforce blue, both items £35.
If you don’t want to bare your knees, take a look at our loose-fit, wide-leg linen trousers, with eyelet detail down each leg to add that special Luna twist. These have a drawstring waist and come in black, white, grey, soft pink and beige, retailing at £55. In our opinion, these are go-anywhere essentials to any summer wardrobe!
Now, the final two recommendations here may not be linen but they are equally cool. Bag a little French chic to go with your shorts or skirt with a cotton Broderie anglaise top by J&L of Paris, which can be worn on or off the shoulder. White, beige, navy, sage green and just £40.
And if the sun should go down, we have the perfect solution: loose knit, long-sleeve tops with pretty lace detail at the back (£40). Hot pink, soft pink, sage green, kingfisher blue, baby blue … what’s your favourite colour?
As is the Luna ethos, we have a fast turnover of stock and new items arriving every week, so that each time you visit our stores there will be something new to catch your eye. So do keep popping in to see us over the summer!
