Beat the heat this summer


After an unsteady start summer is most definitely here, and keeping cool, calm and chic is many a girl’s number one priority as the mercury rises. So our buying team have been putting together some gorgeous jewellery, footwear and bags to help you along the way…

However you choose to beat the heat, you’ll do it in style with these fab pieces.

Beat the heat… with Honora Pearls

When we think of keeping cool in the summer, the ocean is top of the list – so what better way to keep cool than with its most prized fruits?

Pearls’ unique nacreous coating stays naturally cool against the skin as it doesn’t conduct heat, and their lustrous sheen is a great way to show off a sun-kissed glow.


Beat the heat… in blues and greens

A cooling paddle in the surf is a great way to lower your temperature, and organic stones in ocean deep blues and sea green shades evoke the gently lapping waves of the shore.

They’re perfect paired with floaty printed kaftans and loose-fitting cover-ups during the day.


Beat the heat… in gold

Gold is a gorgeous way to show off your tan, so opt for mellow yellow metals as the sun sets and the temperature drops.

Perfect for warm, dusky evenings, pair golden pieces with black or bright summer whites like our volunteer, Trisha.


Beat the heat… at the beach

If tan lines are something you want to avoid, opt for dainty pendants and barely-there chains, but otherwise a boho, fringed aesthetic is a great way to achieve your best ‘beach babe’ look.

Openwork designs and woven bags let your skin breathe and won’t get clammy against your skin.


Beat the heat… with summer brights

An injection of colour – courtesy of jewellery in saturated shades – is a great way to drag greyscale wardrobe basics into the the summer season.

Jazz up greys with oranges, yellows and lime greens; blacks with punchy pinks and reds; and whites with bright blues and purples.



Beat the heat… with flip flops!

Sandals and flip flops keep your toes exposed, perfect for keeping cool as the body’s extremities emit the most heat.
