Summer Style Preview: Classic

Enjoy this spring weather now! Here in North Carolina, it is generally short-lived. That being said, we have plenty of summery options to take you into the upcoming season.

If you lean towards a classic style, you are set here at Dovecote! We have the signature washed and wrinkled linen tunics from CP Shades back in the shop this year in stunning colors that will pair perfectly with your favorite Equestrian pants. We have some great fitted button-downs from Claridge & King as well as slim pants and sweet dresses from Italian designer Peserico, new to us this season and already selling like crazy.

Featherweight cashmere sweaters with intricate details are perfect for breezy evenings on the beach and summer date nights. White pants from Equestrian or Krazy Larry make such a classic base for a look to be topped with some color. We love a nautical navy, but are equally obsessed with lime, peacock blue and tangerine.

We love a Tula hat and sandals for day, and switching it up at night with a silk and cashmere scarf from Kinross and demure heel from Bettye Muller. No matter what your style, our personal stylists will be happy to help curate your summer look!
