1. The short suit

Tailoring just got a lot cooler. Working in much the same way as the humble trouser suit, the short suit is the answer to all style dilemmas. Looking effortlessly Instagram worthy, these perfect co-ords can be worn with any footwear and any top to suit the desired occasion. Plus mix and match the blazer and shorts with the rest of your wardrobe and you’ve got chic outfits all summer! You can thank us later…

 

2. Slip dressing

The big sister to the bias cut slip skirt, the slip dress is your ultimate summer staple. From desk to bar, occasions to festival, there’s nothing a slip dress cannot accommodate for. Throw a t-shirt underneath and pair with trainers for a laidback, casj feel, or glam up with heels and a beaded bag for the wedding season. Trust us when we say you need one in every colour.

 

3. Cycling shorts

Don’t be fooled by these ‘90s throwbacks, they’re an easier trend to pull off than one thinks. Cycling shorts are the answer to those weird weather days, when it’s hot but not and you still want to look hella stylish. Best served with anything oversized to balance out the tight leg fit. Your classic jeans and a nice top just got a SS19 revamp.

 

4. Gingham (anything)

Nothing quite says summer like a checkerboard print, whether it’s on your picnic blanket or your clothes. Gingham works in any colour, any style and is the ultimate co-ord combo, so there’s really no excuse. Keep it classic with blue palettes or inject some sunshine with mint green and coral hues.

 

5. Rope bags

Summer just isn’t the same without a rope bag anymore. Instantly updating any outfit with their holiday vibes, rope and woven bags are here to stay so invest quickly. Your go-tos are the macrame and beaded styles that look like they’ve come straight from an exotic market. The perfect finishing touch to an outfit for the beach, city break or just a day in the office.
