Why to buy:The ethos of the Indian designer label Little Things Studio lies in bringing comfort, luxury and sustainability to consumers. The Oak Co-Ord Set is made with Cupro, a regenerated cellulose fabric created by dissolving cotton linter, the fluffy fiber around the cotton plant’s seeds into a viscous solution of copper oxide called cuprammonium. Completely plant based, the vegan silk is incredibly durable, stretch resistant, breathable, has thermoregulating properties and dries quickly. The fabric helps reduce cotton waste and dyes more easily than other fabrics, hence reduces dye consumption.
What we love: ‘Dear Ocean’ is a transitional collection dedicated to the breathtaking beauty of our vast mysterious ocean. It brings a new wave of escapism and consciousness. With refreshing prints and a free-spirited mood of the 1970s, the narrative is drawn from the growing concerns towards our oceans and sea life, inspiring us to romanticize the ocean itself.

The implied wrap neckline and tie waist round out the fit. The airy, flared cut plays around the body. Just put it on and feel good, that's all this spring look needs
