Beg, Borrow & Blue Steel

This summer we’ve got a new and somewhat ironic style icon – Dad, step forward and bring your novelty shirts with you. Remember those loud tropical and Hawaiian shirts he used to whip out for holiday? We’re bringing them back and they look so good, the girls want in too. Over to our fave boy/girl BFFS from RI HQ who hit up Old Laundry Yard in Shepherd’s Bush to show us that sharing isn’t just caring, it’s styling…

this creative duo were never going to go basic, we love them for choosing this Miami Vice take on the soft revere shirt. Photographer Marc goes full papa vibes, pairing his shirt with 80s style jeans, loafers and tube socks. Elle tunes into that Miami style tucking hers into a high-waist white skirt, worn with matching mules. Don’t forget your sunglasses, super-round or skinny frames add instant style points. 

Move over Sandy and Danny, our Digital Designers have summer nights and days covered with their diner-to-dancefloor styling. Print-phobe Andre switched up his standard monochrome look throwing our blue floral shirt over a classic black tee and jeans. Maddie rocked the ultimate contrast going for crisp white shorts and cat-eye shades. Girls take note: a neat tie at the waist brings your silhouette back and gives a cute Americana twist. 
Menswear Category Manager Emma is no stranger to borrowing from the boys and jumped at the chance to take on the challenge with work pal, Business Analyst, Patrick. They opted for this season’s hero shirt in its most iconic print – leopard. Both decided to keep their looks simple with shorts in neutral white and black, letting the shirt take full glory. Just add shades and you’re good for any summerr celebration.
