Summer is on the horizon, which means now is the time to get your wardrobe warm-weather ready. Of course, you won’t be dressing for the tropics thanks to Ireland’s altogether unpredictable climes, but you can nail the dress code come hail, rain or shine.

As trends from the ‘90s and early ‘00s continue to enjoy a resurgence, this May we’re tipping our hat to western influences so don’t banish your cowboy boots to the attic just yet.

But beyond the boots, we’re championing easy, stylish, single-item outfits that will take the drama out of getting dressed in the morning. From gingham smocks, ruffled maxis, pathwork prints and the dress of the hour, the denim midi, there are so many styles to crush on and Monsoon has the best bohemian looks of them all.

Cotton co-ords, featherlight ditzy print blouses and denim cut offs should also be brought into the mix. Whether your facing into a heavy downpour, a cold chill or a balmy summer’s day, just remember how a simple parka and chunky boot can weatherproof any look.
