The May Edit
With places to be, sunshine to soak up and little ones to chase after, we're making following the trends even easier with our bite-sized debrief of what we're loving this May.
1. WEEKEND WEARING
It's the (long) weekend, baby! Whether you're planning a royal celebration, topping up your tan or catching up on some much-needed rest, it's time to prepare your wardrobe for whatever your bank holiday has in store for you.
2. THE CROCHET DRESS
The RI take on this season's most-wanted trend: "naked" dressing. This one is crafted in a subtly see-through crochet with a maxi length and long sleeves to strike the balance between covered-up and uncovered. Because not all of us are quite ready to bare it all this summer, right?
3. SO SEVENTIES
The '70s are back and that can only mean one thing; it's time to update your wardrobe with plenty of paisley, flares tassels and big sunglasses à la Daisy Jones (and The Six). Throw in a pair of platforms for good measure.
4. LIGHTWEIGHT LINEN
Warm weather? Yay! Sweat patches? Nay... Avoid the annual sweaty dilemma with fashion's most breathable fabric: linen. Perfect for keeping you cool, comfortable and stylish as temperatures continue to climb. Our favourite way to wear it? In this summer’s trending monochromes.
5. EDITOR'S PICKS
Dress like a fashion editor with Naomi May's top picks for the season ahead. With her effortlessly cool style, expect a mix of elevated classics and no-nonsense basics that create covetable outfits for city living.
6. NOUGHTIES NOSTALGIA
The moment you've been waiting for is here: the ballet flat is back. An icon of the 2000s for good reason, this Alexa-Chung-approved style is perfect for those who want to dabble in the noughties resurgence, but aren't quite ready for cargos, baby tees and rhinestones.
Eurovision is coming to Liverpool, and it's time to celebrate the only way we know how: with over-the-top outfits, off-key singing and all the sparkles you can handle. Haven't got any plans yet? Join us at our Liverpool Church Street store for an RI-approved celebration. Think in-store DJs, exclusive prizes and complimentary prosecco.
