Summer Styling With Ichi Clothing
With the sun shining, our clothing choices adapt accordingly and with summer officially here, it’s never too late to add brand new pieces to your wardrobe! At Potters Of Buxton we are delighted to stock such a great collection of women’s clothing from Ichi, and today we’re sharing our favourite Ichi clothing options to help you get some summer styling inspiration.
About Ichi Clothing
The Ichi clothing brand was founded in 1999 and has grown to become a popular European womenswear brand for ladies who enjoy wearing creatively designed pieces that fit into a contemporary fashion world. The Scandinavian brand takes its influences from Japanese culture and the well known minimalism that is typical of Scandinavian style. Flattering cuts and high quality fabrics in beautiful designs ensure that Ichi are an essential addition to your summer outfit collection this year!
Summer Outfit Ideas
Comfort and style go hand in hand with the women’s clothing from Ichi, and you can expect nothing less than quality designs when adding pieces from their summer range into your wardrobe this season. The focus is on lightweight fabrics to keep cool in the summer heat, so fabrics such as linen and pure cotton should be held in favour over thicker material or clingy fabrics such as jersey.
Stripes will never go out of fashion and they transcend well between seasons meaning that you can save your favourite summer striped top for winter by simply adding knitwear to make it seasonally appropriate. A traditional Breton stripe t-shirt is a wardrobe staple that many of us already have at our disposal, but the Ichi top in black and white stripes and V-neck design offers a welcome alternative option. The Ichi Blisa striped blouse with short sleeves and combination of vertical and horizontal stripes with button detailing on the back can be worn casually with jeans or dressed up for work with formal trousers.
A dress that we believe will become a firm favourite among fans of shirt dresses will fall in love with the Ichi Bano longline shirt dress. Offering a mature take on a summer shirt dress with thin pinstripe lines and an off-white base colour, this women’s dress design with long sleeves can be worn for the office or holiday equally as well. Wear with summer sandals or wedges as a demure way to style the dress, or wear it open over a vest and denim shorts as a chic cover up.
Feminine Prints & Colours
There are certainly prints that are synonymous with summer style, and Ichi have tapped into those seasonal patterns perfectly with their latest collection. A floral pattern can be translated into almost any fashion item; from tops to trousers, to small accessories such as floral embroidery on a clutch bag. The Ichi top which displays an elegant floral pattern is the long sleeved Vada floral shirt in white with pink and coral flower sparingly spread across the material. Pink and coral offer a beautifully subtle hint of colour that plays well into the classic summer colour palette, without being too powerful. Another classic summer top choice is a simple white blouse and the Ichi blouse in a smock design is a refreshed take on the wardrobe staple. Both women’s tops can be teamed with cropped jeans or chinos.
Staying with the floral theme, an Ichi dress with short sleeves and in a floral print will definitely add some easy summer style to those long hazy days. The ideal casual dress, the Ichi Dizo printed dress offer muted tones of mustard, pink and cream as a wonderful way to bring colour into your summer clothing choices. Style the Ichi dress with sandals for an effortless look that is perfect for weekends.
Due to the delicious weather we’re treated to during the summer months, a jacket is often not necessary, but opting for a light jacket can make all the difference to completing a summer outfit wonderfully. The Ichi Tuxa longline jacket was made for this season with it’s soft and lightweight fabric and wrap around design with belt. A jacket like this in dusky pink will make an ideal addition to a patterned cami and chinos outfit combination, or worn over a summer dress.
