August is like the Sunday of summer. It is still warm but the air is a tad breezier, and the daily rhythm is leisurely. In fashion, August marks the beginning of a new season – a great time to go back to basics.

Liz Hoops by Tom Wood

A great way to upgrade any outfit is a pair of go-to earrings. The Liz hoops from Norwegian jewellery brand Tom Wood are just that. Made of durable sterling silver and in a timeless design, these will be a go-to for years to come.

Breezy shirt by Djerf Avenue

The versatility of a blue cotton button-down shirt is next to endless. It can be dressed up and down, buttons open or closed, sleeves rolled up or not. It makes the perfect garment for August when summer days in the Nordics are getting cooler. Opt for a slightly looser fit to add comfort and style, and wear tucked into jeans, over skirts, or solo for lazy mornings at the summer cabin.
