Feeling Hot? Luna’s Cool.

While the sun still shines, at Luna we believe in having plenty in stock that suits the season so this month is all about staying cool in every sense of the word.

When the temperature’s rising, there is no better fabric to choose than linen. And don’t just take our word for it … a quick look in the history books will tell you our ancestors were keeping their cool in linen thousands of years ago. But we know for sure they would not have been rockin’ the bold, beautiful and downright gorgeous 21st-century colours and styles that Luna has to offer you.

First to mention are our shift dresses. We have relaxed, short-sleeved ones aplenty in a host of colours from mustard, coral and kingfisher blue to staple black, white and navy. Choose completely plain or those with button detail, and a choice of on or below the knee, to wear bare-legged or with leggings. There’s a sleeveless version too, with a strong designer in-put: drawstring hem, huge slouchy pockets and lacy back detail. All these are so stylish it’s hard to believe they’re just £45–£58.

Moving on from the plain, our polka-dot shift linen dresses – sleeveless and a loose, soft fit – are real Miss Sugar cuties. Colours include navy, soft blue, muted lime, hot pink and scorching orange … and they’re a sweet £48.

Keeping with the dotty/spotty theme, and if like us you love layers, our Sugarbabe range of tops includes a bold polka-dot under tunic with a shorter length, long-sleeve plain top as the upper layer. In colourways of navy, cobalt blue and soft pink to name but three, these are super-loose fitting and terrific value at £40.

Shorts are good news this year and we have several styles, including a flirty and flattering pure linen wide-leg pair (with sneaky jersey waistband for added comfort) – definitely worth waxing your legs for! If you prefer a flirty skirt, Miss Sugar has a similar alternative to the shorts. Look out for the shorts and skirts in navy, white and airforce blue, both items £35.

If you don’t want to bare your knees, take a look at our loose-fit, wide-leg linen trousers, with eyelet detail down each leg to add that special Luna twist. These have a drawstring waist and come in black, white, grey, soft pink and beige, retailing at £55. In our opinion, these are go-anywhere essentials to any summer wardrobe!

Now, the final two recommendations here may not be linen but they are equally cool. Bag a little French chic to go with your shorts or skirt with a cotton Broderie anglaise top by J&L of Paris, which can be worn on or off the shoulder. White, beige, navy, sage green and just £40.

And if the sun should go down, we have the perfect solution: loose knit, long-sleeve tops with pretty lace detail at the back (£40). Hot pink, soft pink, sage green, kingfisher blue, baby blue … what’s your favourite colour?

As is the Luna ethos, we have a fast turnover of stock and new items arriving every week, so that each time you visit our stores there will be something new to catch your eye. So do keep popping in to see us over the summer!

 

Summertime – and at Luna, the livin’ is easy!

In fact, Luna styles are easy to wear all year round and now the sun is up, it’s time to rock summer’s coolest looks.

Linen is a major player this season and we have plenty of choices, including from our favourite Italian fashion houses. As always, many of our tops and tunics are a flattering ‘go with the flow’ look, especially great if fitted is a no-go for you. In store are gorgeous long-line polka-dot linen tunics in dove grey, sage green, navy, red, mustard and hot pink – which also come with a flower pattern as an alternative. We’re also lovin’ the linen over-shirts in various shades of blue, dotted with pretty stars. All these are just £45–£48.

We’ve got plenty of more traditional length tops too, including cool cotton ones with pin-tuck detail on the sleeves, which come in coral, cobalt and essential summer white (£45). A cowl neck is flattering on just about everyone, and Miss Sugar’s sleeveless tops (£40 and in duck-egg blue, navy and hot pink) are just right if you dare to bare your arms. A similar neckline but on a tunic-style top with a longer sleeve – and gorgeous embroidered leaf detail – is another winner; these come in baby blue, navy, summer green and white, priced at £50. Cover-ups for cooler days include waterfall cardigans and open-knit shrugs … and much more besides.

But there’s more to Luna than tops! Check out our linen midi skirts in grey and white at £45 that fall softly and beautifully, or how about our casual but detailed draw-string track pants by Suzy D at £48, in grey, navy and soft pink?

A simple linen shift dress is perfect for keeping you looking and feeling cool from day to evening: check out the smart plain ones at £65 or the more casual spotted ones with slouchy pocket detail at £38, which come in black, sage green, soft pink and mustard – and make a brilliant beach cover-up too!

And remember to top-off your holiday look with a pair of stunning shades and a pretty straw bag, all here at Luna.

Pssst! Top-tip! Luna’s mid-season sale is now on and there are bargains galore to be had – but be quick as we are making space for more super summer stock!
