Hat tricks


Protecting your precious skin from those harmful rays is an important, but not exclusive, benefit of a summer hat. There are serious sartorial gains to be had when adding headwear to your summertime style.

While classic straw hats will always have a place in our hearts – and on our heads – this year, the popularity of bucket-inspired styles endures, and we’re enjoying the more mature interpretations like Seafolly’s Relaxo Hat (pictured). Here’s Metropol’s pick of summer hats which deserve a moment in the sun.

Rise of rib


Rib might be the elevated basic you’ve been looking for. Its textured effect makes any clothing item appear more elevated, whether worn layered or on its lonesome. Fabricated in natural fibres for softness and breathability, we’re romancing rib in all garments from singlets and tanks to midi dresses and skirts, long sleeve tees, wide leg pants and summer swimsuits.

Shirr thing


Whimsical meets all-important comfort with shirring, an outfit go-to making quite a name for itself. The romantic ruffles created by shirring, where elastic is sewn in parallel rows so a garment gathers, offer an of the moment silhouette.

 

Marle Ines Top

 

Often fun, floaty and iron-free, countless brands are making a strong case for the sartorial technique, which is being reimagined in dress, blouse, skirt and pant form from high end to the high street.

Adjacent to Prairie and cottagecore aesthetics, shirring is nostalgic yet simple – making it a versatile wardrobe addition whether you opt for a monochrome or patterned design.

Ruby Mirella Short Sleeve Wrap Dress

In New Zealand, designers like Ruby have set the scene with its sell-out Mirella series, shirred dresses, tops and skirts in a range of hues from classic black and white, to bold bright pink and tonal olive green. Marle’s Ines Top from its newest collection offers a pared back option, with a single line of shirring giving shape to an otherwise floaty favourite.

Pair shirred maxi dresses with sandals, sneakers, heels or boots to suit your day’s activities. Mix shirred tops with jeans, wide leg pants, slip skirts or shorts; and shirred skirts and pants with simple shirts, tees and blouses.

 

Giselle Silk Georgette Top

In a time where comfort is key due to most of the world being homebound, shirring offers the stretch required for both sedentary and active days.
