Style summer looks with ease in traditional Ticking Stripes. The print is a classic but also in-keeping with this season's nautical trend.

Finish with strappy sandals, ballet flats or gum-sole trainers (anything flat for a day of exploring!)

Nothing says summer like light and airy colours, and our Sprig Pressed Floral Set is no exception. From the Albaray x Wilder & Wren capsule collection, the pieces combine soft pastels and crisp whites to give you a fresh ensemble for the warmer days ahead. Pair the midi skirt with either our puff-sleeved blouse or square-neck top to change the silhouette to suit you.
