Summer in style with Timothy Foxx
Tweed fashion designers Timothy Foxx Clothing know how to look stylish as temperatures slowly start to rise, and in this blog, Rosalie Eustace, Chief Designer at Timothy Foxx gives her top tips for looking stylish and feeling cool this summer.
With a busy show season well underway the Foxxy Team travelled to Scotland for 2 shows back-to-back and then headed back down to England for one or two more shows until August, when we now get to have a few weeks at home relaxing and enjoying the summer.
It's actually a really nice season to spend some time on the Farm and to get some preparation done ready for another hectic show calendar in September. We are also hoping to be fully moved into our new HQ, which is about 3 miles down the road from where we are currently located. This is such an exciting time but we have a lot of painting, organising and packing to do along with getting our new bigger, smarter showroom sorted.
This Summer, polo shirts, luxury hoodies and ‘hotter than hot’ hot pants are just some of the fun looks we are offering 'Foxxy' ladies. Don't worry though,
if you are slightly more conservative, then our longer length, lightweight tweed skirts and tailored jackets still have that ‘Foxxy’ twist with clever
style details such as coloured turn back cuffs on jackets and pretty printed fabric linings on skirts for comfort.
Our adorable summer skirt collection ticks a big fashion trend towards romantic retro and incorporates our attention to detail through tweed waistbands and mis-matched buttons. Gorgeously girlie, the collection features polka dots, flowers and country plaids for a look that is flirty and fun! We also have our new ‘Skort’; a hybrid version of our mini skirt and shorts amalgamated. They offer a pretty feminine take on our popular shorts with baby blue corduroy waistband and featuring our gorgeous Igloo tweed. Many of our customers wear these skirts, shorts and skorts teamed with their knee high country boots, but they look equally great teamed with leggings and flip-flops. They are the perfect wardrobe attire for summer music festivals or a warm summers’ BBQ with friends.
Our top camping tips for show and festival goers.
The Foxxy Team are camping pros as we spend about 50 days of the year camping at shows all over the UK. The key is to be prepared and pack for all weathers, therefore pack warm clothing, wet weather clothes, sun cream and lots of spare underwear and socks! With the British weather being pretty interchangeable a comfy hoodie is a must as this is also great to sleep in if the weather is cold. We would also recommend a pair of thick socks to keep your tootsies warm at night. One of our tweed wraps offer the perfect lightweight but warm cover-up for those cooler summer nights and can act like a blanket over your sleeping bag too! And finally, to avoid bad bed hair, a bottle of dry shampoo is useful to have in your wash bag along with a pair of ear warmers.
We will be heading to the Royal County of Berkshire Show in September, which we are very much looking forward to as it is such a lovely county show to be a part of. Our stand will be in our usual place on Avenue A opposite one of the best county show food marquees in the country. We will have all our gorgeous Tweed clothing with us along with a Sales Rail, and for those of you who are fans of Timothy Foxx you will know that we very rarely have a sale so this is a perfect opportunity to grab yourself a Foxxy bargain!
Have fun this summer with your wardrobe and we look forward to seeing you at The Royal County of Berkshire Show.
