Where to find the best summer shirts?
Nothing beats a great shirt as a cover up on holiday.
Easy to get on and off, sexy yet classy, it is my ‘go to’ for throwing over a bikini or swimsuit.
The crucial thing is that is it long enough to cover your bottom, slouchy but not too oversized. The fabric has to be ultra lightweight and needs to wash well.
At my last Matches shopping event we fell in love with the Mes Demoiselle one featured below. The gather detail at the back and the way it is cut means that it works really well over swimwear. Tucked in, it looks magnificent over shorts too. It is the perfect length and weight. Yes, its expensive but you only need one! It comes in white and pink too.
Another great option, and it is so hard to find a great short sleeve shirt, is the one below from STAUD. It is long enough and the fabric so soft to the touch, perfect poolside cover up.
Ascenco have some wonderful linen pieces and I have my eye on the one below
I also have a fabulous tunic linen top from Stone Waisted, a brand which prides itself on using the best fabrics.
