Today’s outfit inspiration comes from Seasalt Cornwall who make lovely quality clothing and accessories that are woven with stories of Cornwall in the United Kingdom. Cornwall’s wild landscape, artistic culture and maritime heritage inspire their casual and useful designs.
I particularly appreciate how relatable, comfortable, practical and easy the styling of the brand’s outfits are. The attention to detail is fabulous and the patterns are interesting. Here are some my favourites of their Summer collection.
1. Tee, Pencil, Jumper, Sneakers
A relaxed patterned pencil skirt is combined with a fluid long-sleeved tee. It’s tucked into the skirt to create some structure. White sneakers pick up the white of the tee, and keep the look super casual. A navy pullover that picks up the blue in the skirt is draped over the model’s shoulders like a scarf, and can be worn when temperatures cool. I see a small crossbody bag that works with the palette of the outfit to finish off the look.
2. Matchy-Matchy Dress and Tote
This is a hard one to copy because you need a dress and tote in the same pattern. It’s delightful how they match! By all means combine a dress and bag in similar or complementary patterns for an equally great look. The breezy and interesting outfit is completed with dressy flat brown oxfords, which pick up the browns in the model’s hair. Unexpected and a fun touch.
3. Wide Crops, Blouse, Sandals, and Straw Bag
This is a crisp and easier look to pull together. Combine a pair of white wide crops with a fluid and breezy patterned blouse that isn’t too long. Leave it untucked. Flat brown sandals add to the relaxed vibe and bookend the model’s hair. A straw bag is a classic addition. You might prefer the outfit combination in colours that are more to your taste. Treat the look as a template and do your own thing.
4. Jeans, Tee, Anorak, Sneakers
This might not seem like a Summer look, but it can get chilly by the seaside in the middle of Summer, in which case you need to wrap up and wear layers. Living in the Pacific North West, I totally get that you need an anorak or raincoat of sorts at some point during the day when you live close to the water. Here, boyfriend jeans are combined with a striped tee, and topped with an anorak that picks up the navy and mustard stripes of the tee. The white and mustard sneakers further pick up the colours in the striped tee. Fably matched, polished and practical. Add jewellery, eyewear, bag, and watch as desired.
