Weird Fish clothing, based in the heart of the rolling Cotswold countryside, has launched its spring/summer 2018 women’s and men’s range. The collection features season essentials, including short sleeve check shirts for warm afternoons and lightweight dresses for humid days spent sightseeing.

Top picks for women include the Pascale Dress (£30). Guaranteed to brighten up your day with its vibrant boysenberry tone, the stylish dress ties at the back and is cut just above the knee. When the barbecue invites start to roll in, the Tallahassee Dress (£35) is the perfect choice to keep you cool in the warmer weather. The Tallahassee is Weird Fish’s best-selling dress, back in four new season prints and the renowned super-soft jersey cotton fabric.

For those looking for a reversible skirt to save on space when packing, opt for the Shana Reversible Skirt (£40). With an easy wrap around style, get two designs for the price of one. If shorts are your preferred option, Weird Fish has added four cargo shorts to its collection – walnut, dark denim, aqua sky and boysenberry. The Ottawa shorts (£30) are cool, stylish and comfortable, with a little stretch for the days when you’re exploring coastal towns.

With an elasticated waist and quirky all-over print, the Nimbus harem trousers (£25) are smart and lightweight, helping to keep the evening chills at bay.

There’s plenty for men this season too, with a focus on short sleeve check shirts. Weird Fish has expanded its range with some fun and playful prints, including the Mullins Hawaiian Shirt (£35), Wade Herringbone Shirt (£35) and Tibbet Shirt (£30). The Mullins tropical print can be dressed up smart with the Hiram Cotton Shorts (£28), or dressed down with the Broxburn Denim Shorts (£35).

The Soundwave shorts, a surf-inspired staple, are back in three different colours – pumpkin, deep ocean and moonlight blue (£30). When the temperature drops, Weird Fish recommends the Skipper Classic Macaroni sweatshirt. Available for £55, it’s an upgraded version of the brand’s 25 year old classic sweatshirt. The Macaroni is designed for year-round use, perfect for layering and is durable.

John Stockton, managing director at Weird Fish, commented: “Our new spring/summer collection focuses on a fun and playful vibe, designed with summer activities in mind – everything from rowing boats down rivers, to festivals, to chilling at beach bars. We want to instil a ‘your weekend starts here’ sentiment, encouraging our customers to get outdoors and live life to the full every day.”

The SS18 collection is available to buy nationally from Weird Fish retail stores and online. There are 14 branded stores and stockists include Debenhams, Cotswold Outdoor and Blacks Leisure.
