Game, set, match! Spring is finally in the air, and that means new arrivals at Carousel. We are so excited to start sharing our latest styles from our Circus range, all designed in house here in Dublin, and produced ethically in collaboration with our factory in India.
We have lots of new patterns and colours now available, all in our popular, vintage inspired shapes of course. One new pattern we are very excited about is this fun and colourful tennis style pattern!
With a bright, multi colour print, this pattern looks great paired with bold, block colours for spring. This pattern makes us dream of summer. Watching tennis on a fresh lawn, sipping Prosecco and munching on some strawberries and cream
This gorgeously fun pattern is currently available in two dress shapes and a blouse. Lets take a closer look at these, and some styling ideas, below.
Tennis Style – The Brigitte Dress
In a timeless 1950’s inspired fit and flare shape, this dress reminds us of the simple but chic dress shapes favored by Audrey Hepburn.
Style it simply with a cute cardigan thrown over you shoulders for a laid back retro look. You could even layer a long sleeve polo or tee underneath for chillier days. Dress it up with an updo and some matching block colour pumps for fancier soirees. The Brigitte is so versatile, and that’s why we love it!
Tennis Style: The Anna Blouse
Spring is the perfect time for separates because they give you the opportunity to mix and match, and make endless outfits. This is also handy for Springs more, shall we say, temperamental, weather! You can layer up or layer down, dependent on the weather.
Our Anna blouse shape is a must have for your separates collection. You can wear it out loose over jeans for a laid back look, or tucked into a smart skirt for work. Peek the Anna’s necktie out over a jumper or cardi to add a darling detail to any look.
We styled this look by pairing block colour pieces with our tennis style pattern, to really let the pattern speak for itself. We’ve kept the look bright and bold though, because we want our style to stand out this Spring! Stay with the tennis theme, and keep it comfy, by wearing this outfit with some white sneakers. This look is perfect for a shopping trip and some lunch with the girls.
Tennis Style: The Ingrid Dress
It’s always time for tea in our 1940’s inspired Ingrid dress. We can see ourselves sipping tea from vintage porcelain outside on a green lawn this summer in the gorgeous new Ingrid tennis dress. With cute details, like the button up bodice, fold over collar, and cap sleeves, this dress is so, so cute and unique.
We’re complimenting this look with a darling sky blue cardigan, and would add other layers and accessories in dainty feminine shades, to let the colours of the pattern really stand out. This dress would look great paired with some retro sandals and straw hat this Spring/Summer season!
