Shop the Shoot: Style Essentials To Get You Through An Irish ‘Summer’

Looking for your key pieces for season ahead? Well look no further, we've got all the wardrobe staples you need.



It’s raining outside and yet the mercury’s hitting 20 degrees? Oh goody, summer’s here! After a few days of sunshine last month, Irish weather has once again returned to a constant state of humid, slightly sweaty, what-the-eff-is-going-on-with-my-hair madness.

With that in mind, we got real in our August issue and styled our model in some realistic summer style staples. Forget bikinis and kaftans, we’re talking printed midi and A-lines skirts, airy shirt dresses and more statement bombers than you can shake a stick at.

Read on for Team STELLAR’s summer wardrobe essentials, plus how to style each one for whatever weather sitch you find yourself in.
