Come rain or shine, don’t let the unpredictable spring weather deter you in your summer stylish ways. Trouser suits are always a good bet; you can wait until the actual day before deciding whether to team with a warm woolly or cool cami.
As our first designer brand’s name says ‘Relax Baby Be Cool’ and wear their Sekar Jagard cropped jacket and matching trousers.
Relax Baby Be Cool was established by Estonian-born mother and daughter. Daughter Liis Boode has spent half her life travelling and so wants to give back and contribute to preserving ancient textile art and ancient traditions. Mother Katrin Kiho is behind the process of giving life to the products with her lifelong knowledge of large scale garment production, dedication to crafting and arts, and an eye for perfection. All collections are handmade and limited due to the print and fabric used.
The Sekar Jagard print is one of their Indonesian batik patterns and symbolises beauty, in 100% friendly cotton with metal buttons.

For frills and bows, New Look’s pale blue bow front Bardot crop top is the perfect length and will just sit on top of the high waist of the trouser and under the jacket in order to keep the silhouette neat. Also available in pink neon for a bolder look or white for that classic style. Price £12.99.
