Choosing what to wear when the mercury’s rising can be tricky when you’re not on holiday. Bethany Rowntree, founder of independent online boutique Studio B, shares her picks for chic summer style
As a nation seemingly wedded to our jeans and jumpers, summer dressing can bring us out in a collective cold sweat. How do you dress for the office when it’s hotting up and not look like you’re heading to the beach? And how do you take a break from your jeans when the weekend comes around? Enter Bethany Rowntree, a former buyer for Mulberry, Matches Fashion and Anya Hindmarch, and the founder of Studio B, an online boutique that champions small, independent brands so you can find something truly unique. ‘Buying less and buying better sums up my ethos for Studio B,’ says Bethany. ‘The aim is that each piece means something to someone and will stand the test of time.’
Here, Bethany shares her edit of the coolest looks to see you through summer in style – and not a flip flop in sight.
