Summer style edit: White on...
This summer is a white-out - the neutral of the season is awash on the high street, from linen blazers to leather accessories - light, bright and an immediate modern update. Impractical on the cleaning bill front perhaps but super versatile, paired with denim, print or for a high fashion look - opt for head-to-toe white with raffia accessories. Here's our pick - whether you're looking for boho chic or a sports luxe vibe:
Cowboy boots are back, with a twist. This white leather pair with metal toe caps and block heel are the perfect pairing with floaty maxi dresses and cropped jeans.
A shirt/jacket hybrid, a 'shacket' is the perfect casual outerwear option for this time of year. This cotton number from Arket is a great high summer alternative to a denim jacket.
These flattering palazzo pants from Jigsaw are just the right amount of Bianca Jagger. Pair with a white tee and let your accessories do the talking - whether you go for a bold pop of colour, or chunky metal to balance out the simple silhouette, these will become a summer wardrobe staple.
Every summer wardrobe needs a good linen blazer; we love this look, paired with city shorts and a simple round-neck tee during the week, then over dresses or with jeans at the weekend. Great for smartening up your casual summer pieces with a bit of tailoring.
This clever linen dress from The White Company can be styled 3 ways; cold-shoulder (Bardot style), on-the-shoulder, or a-symmetrically off one shoulder. The frill adds drama, yet the simple a-line shape is easy to wear. Pair with a wedge espadrille and some of our new hand beaded hoop earrings.
Belt bags have been huge in 2019, worn slung low at the waist or cross body. Great for at airports, or festivals. This simple design from Kin at John Lewis would look great over a floral maxi.
A crisp pair of white trainers are perfect for summer - this minimal leather pair from ethical trainer brand, Veja are great with shorts, dresses or cropped denim.
