Summer Sundresses

Sun dresses1

We are enjoying the lovely sunshine in Keswick this summer.

It is perfect weather for a Seasalt or Mistral cotton sundress.  The sundresses are cotton and fully lined so perfectly cool.

We particularly like the Seasalt Killingrew Dresses which is one of Seasalts classic Styles.  This summer they come in two stunning prints.  The Alium Tin design and the Painted Floral design.  both are made from soft cotton and are sleeveless with a deep V neck at the front and back and a waist tie for an adjustable fit.

If you love the Sun dress but would like a cardigan for the evening then needless to say we have three lovely ones to choose from (all three look great with both dresses!).  You can choose from the Seasalt Fresco Cotton Cardigan in either Crest blue or Rockpool green.  Or if you prefer the full sleeve then the Seasalt Carn Leh Cardigan in Lighthouse Red is just perfect.

Mistral and Nomads also have lovely summer dresses.  If the V neck of the Seasalt dress is not for you then the Mistral dress may just be the one!  It has narrow shoulder straps and elastic detailing at the back making it the perfect fit.  It is called the Market Day Dress which makes you feel it is perfect for strolling round a mediterranean market.

The Nomads Sun dress is also cleverly designed for a great fit – there is a tie round the top of the dress making it adjustable to suit most busts!  It is quite appropriately called the drawstring dress.

So here’s hoping that the lovely sunshine continues so we can all enjoy wearing our lovely summer dresses!


Linen – it’s like Marmite!

Linen Blog

We have lots of lovely Seasalt linens in the shop at the moment, linen is 100% cotton and ideal for hot summer days ….. however, like marmite. you either love it or hate it! It always make us smile with the dramatic reaction that customers give when they realise the dress or trousers are linen.

Linen is labor-intensive to manufacture, but when it is made into garments, it is valued for its exceptional coolness and freshness in hot weather.

This season Duck Egg blue is a key colour in many of our collections and one of our favourite Seasalt Linen Dresses is in the pretty Cornflower Dress is in ‘Garfish’.  We love the freshness of the colour and its verstility.  If you prefer the fabric also makes a loose fitting sleeveless top (the Levant Top).

Seasalt have yet again come up tops with their elegant Navy Blue wide leg linen trousers – the Hollyblue trousers.

If you prefer a pattern rather than plain then why not try the Seasalt Sapling linen skirt – a navy blue base with a host of pretty flower colours in the print.

Mistral also have several linen skirts and dresses our favourite is the lovely long linen Lyme Regis Skirt in classic navy or duck egg blue.
