Effortless Elegance - New Zjoosh Late Summer/Autumn Apparel
EFFORTLESS ELEGANCE: NEW ZJOOSH LATE SUMMER/AUTUMN APPAREL
by: Kellie Rigney
It was around this time last year, as I rushed about all hot and bothered in the summer heat shopping for something to wear, that I remembered a quote I had read somewhere: “Create the things you wish existed”. Finding nothing suitable in the stores, I decided then and there that in 2017 Zjoosh would create a new apparel range especially for late summer and early autumn.
It can be so difficult finding great quality but affordable garments made from breathable, lightweight fibres, but we hope this collection meets those objectives. We’ve opted for luxurious pure linens and cottons in classical styles to take you anywhere from work to lunch to dinner in the balmy and oppressive heat.
I’ve always been drawn to linen. It looks and feels so crisp and clean, and best of all it’s tough! Give me one good linen shirt over 20 that have synthetic elements every time. As natural fibres, these pieces will wash and wear beautifully. Believe me, I’ve road tested everything day after day to make sure they can support a busy lifestyle. After searching high and low, we found these gorgeous, elegant linens that are still well priced. At $99 these Zjoosh classic shirts look great, and will suit every different body type. Everyone at Zjoosh HQ has taken part in our ‘try on sessions’ and we’ve all purchased one, we love them that much.
You can pair these with our linen classic culottes. The culotte is the perfect pant for this time of year. They’re not only look sophisticated in a chic, Frenchy kind way, but they feel amazing against the skin. In fact, they are so comfortable and effortless they can double as lounge wear after a busy day.
We’ve also introduced a timeless shirt dress this season. I’ve always been personally drawn to the shirt dress. I’ve worn them since the early 90s and have a wardrobe filled with them. They look smart and fresh in a paired-back kind of way, and are super comfortable and cool in late summer. A true trans-seasonal piece, once the temp drops you can team it with a pair of jeans and boots and layer up with a scarf.
