I’m having a fan girl moment for Gudrun Sjoden once again. I honestly believe that when the weather turns brighter, there is genuinely nothing better than turning to their eco-cotton creations that look stylish and keep you cool. Gudrun’s Summer creations are made for packing in your suitcase, they weigh next to nothing, feel cool and lightweight when you are wearing them, and yet still look good enough to take you from the beach to sightseeing around the city.
The dress I am wearing here totally illustrates this point. This is the Monsun eco-cotton dress which has a loose flowing style and, hurrah! is a dress with pockets. This dress is a dream to wear as it is in a very thin cotton, but it is not see-thru, as some cotton dresses tend to be. The fabric has a slight pleat to it, and a wonderful floral pattern that reminds me of aboriginal art.
This dress is super comfortable to wear, another reason why it is such a great holiday choice. The sleeves are not tight, the dress does not cling, and it has pockets – always a favourite feature for a day dress. The style is best worn loose and flowy, with the hippy-sh, Marrakesh style vibes that Gudrun is famous for, but could be adapted into a slightly more formal look with heels and a smart blazer. When the weather turns cooler, you could add a denim jacket, or even wear this layered over leggings in order to make it earn a place in your wardrobe. The dress really is versatile.
If you visit the Gudrun Sjoden website right now you will be in time for the early bird prices for the brand new Summer ranges, this time inspired by the wonder and design of Japan.
