This month in style: July's 4 essential styles

Words— Frank And Oak staff

Colour-blocking made easy; pyjama dressing, relaxed seersucker shirting that’s perfect for the weather – plus classic menswear patterns reimagined for women. Here’s our edit of what’s new for men and women in the month of July.



1. Colour-blocked basics



Colour-Blocked Camp Collar Shirt in Grey/Navy, Cotton Colour-Blocked Crewneck Pullover in Navy


The first entry on our shopping list are these lively colour-blocked basics that juxtapose bold hues with patterns.  As seen above we've taken classic Oxford shirts and light, summer crewneck sweaters and added blocks of colour and large patterns that will make sure you get noticed – for the best reasons – this summer. 



2. Pyjama dressing





Easy and effortlessly cool this year’s array of fine pyjama-style tops, trousers, and jumpsuits exude relaxed vibes throughout the day and well into the evening. Because sure, sleep is necessary, but it’s also a lifestyle. 



3. A seersucker summer



Short Sleeve Seersucker Windowpane Shirt in Brown, Seersucker Windowpane Shirt in Navy



What do you get when you mix textured seersucker fabric and a very sharp window check? These shirts. Sorry, no punch line, just a winning combination.



4. Regal patterns



Cotton-Modal Wrap Skirt in Prince of Wales, Front Button Pinafore in Prince of Wales


We’ve taken one of the oldest and most often used patterns in traditional menswear – Prince of Wales – put it together with organic cotton, and injected it with a hint of yellow that takes it into bold new territory.
