… a word from Amanda & summer fashion tips

Welcome to Zips It Up and the end of May.

It’s almost Summer, heating up in London and the Balearics very nicely.

Here at Amanda Zips It Up, the seasonal advice is all about hitting the beach in cool kimonos and sassy shorts sets. Chelsea Peers has produced its first loungewear range made from planet conscious fabrics, perfect to wear outdoors as well as indoors.

My favourites are the satin kimonos, which are the perfect cover up for your summer holiday. Check out the floral and geometric prints. Or if they scare you, opt for the neutral colours seen in the shorts sets, which are light airy and made from cheesecloth. Prices vary around the £40 range.


Also, on the summer holiday vibe, Kurt Keiger has dipped into fashion design, with an exclusive swimwear range. The collection also includes bold statement maxi dresses, kaftans, bucket hats and hoodies, which definitely aren’t for the beach shy. Expect bright colours, embellishments ad THAT iconic rainbow print.

Prices range from £59 – £239
