Trends for the upcoming summer season have been influenced by a myriad of looks and styles—but nothing compares to the current inspiration emerging from the Mediterranean! This month’s collection travels to France’s Provence region and back to the 70s for a nostalgic and dreamy blend created by our inspired stylists. Take this time indoors to sew up your favourite pieces for yourself and little one. Check out what we have to offer!

 

Trapeze Skirt and Sundress

Jupe trapèze et robe bain de soleil  - Burda Style mai 2020


So very 70s, this trapeze skirt is cut from flower printed cotton waffle fabric and adorned with two pleats that unfold from the waist to the hem for an incredibly special look. The gorgeous bucolic sundress in floral print to the right is the epitome of romantic! The short and slimming bodice, open neckline and ruffled straps are sure to make this frock a summer favourite. Plus, who can deny the charms of that breezy gore skirt panel?

 

Tunic and Blouse Jacket

Tunique et veste à basque - Burda Style mai 2020

This loose-fitting tunic in broderie anglaise is a true best seller from the 70s. Stay cool and stylish this summer with this gorgeous top featuring two large and flowy horizontal frills, three quarter length bishop sleeves and a deep V neckline. Inspired by fashion from the festive island of Ibiza. The more classic peplum top to the right in floral honeycomb jacquard comes with a pretty peter pan collar and two dainty pleats. A full-length zipper adds just that touch of modernity. These patterns are in short sizes.

 

Buttonned Miniskirt and Flowy Midi Dress

Minijupe boutonnée et robe midi vaporeuse - Burda Style mai 2020

 

This model is so easy to swoon over! We love the narrow fit, hem flounce and large tying belt that complement this buttoned miniskirt so well. To the right, the incredibly airy midi dress in light cotton with sweet puff sleeves and a gorgeous gathered skirt panel has really got it all. Totally fit for frolicking! Both models are nods to the very stylish 70s era.

 

Layered Dress and Delicate Blouse

Robe à volants et blouse délicate - Burda Style mai 2020

 

The long dress in pearled grey silk satin to the left will turn heads thanks to its lovely draping sleeves, fitted waist and dropped skirt with asymmetrical layers. This tress is in tall sizes. To the right, the dainty little blouse with topstitched ruffles adorning a peplum bodice is an absolute delight. We love the delicate darts that give this top a trapeze cut.

 

V-Neck Blouse, Girl's Suspender Skirt & Tunic

Chemisier femme, jupe à bretelles et tunique fillette - Burda Style mai 2020

 

This stunning liberty print is just the fabric for a lovely blouse for Mom and suspender skirt for daughter. The shapely cut of the blouse to the left is adorned with French darts, super trendy billowy sleeves, and a fitted waist thanks to a simple sash. The adorable skirt for children comes with an elastic waist with binding and large suspenders that boast tiny little shoulder frills. Little Miss’ tunic to the right is exceedingly popular and easy to make. It is hard not to adore the empire waist and cute balloon sleeves.

 

Buttonned Tank and Girl's Sleeveless Dress

Top à brides et robe chasuble - Burda Style mai 2020

 

This last-minute top looks super simple but includes many subtly beautiful little details, such as the full-length placket and thin double straps. The breezy frock in broderie anglaise modelled by Miss to the right is one of a kind! Ruffles around the rounded neckline, mini flutter sleeves and a lovely hem flounce make this sleeveless dress perfect for the hot summer months.

 All of these models can be found in the May issue of Burda Style, in shops since April 17th!
