1. Lighten up: shed those heavy winter fabrics and swap for lightweight options such cotton, jersey and viscose. These will not only help to keep you cool on a warm day, but they’ll elevate your cold weather style to a sizzling summer vibe in a matter of minutes.
  2. All in the detail: frilled sleeves, ruffled necklines, flared hems - all these add a soft edge to a garment. On a lightweight fabric, these floaty edges will ripple and sway, creating a romantic and dreamy summer feel.
  3. Pretty patterns: from vivid florals, to seaside stripes, bright colour splashes and geometric designs, when it’s summertime everything is on the table. Look out in particular for what’s trending - this season indulge in pastel shades of pink, lavender and mint, or go bold with cobalt blue and scarlet red.
  4. Love your layers: while the weather remains changeable, layers are key to successful dressing to ensure you’re safely covered for the whole day. Think about a lightweight open jacket or blazer to throw over a lightweight maxi dress. A longline cardigan or linen shirt paired with skinny jeans and a patterned tee is a great go-to weekend style.
