See It Style It

Over & Out

Our capricious weather makes the summer cover-up a smart choice, and this season the blazer runs the show – be it safari-style, supersized or cinched. Utilitarian classics are your off-duty alternative, proving ‘over the top’ can spell stylishly understated.

Dial It Forward

A sleek blazer instantly signals SS21, lending contemporary gloss to that timeless summer trio of maxi dress, espadrilles and sunhat.

Play On

The old-school anorak slips happily into summer’s ’30s aesthetic, alongside pleat-front trousers and the polo top, while sneakers are the finishing touch that keeps things contemporary.

Love Knot

A favourite on the SS21 runways, a tie-waist is this season’s hit detail, lending a soft femininity to the tailored jacket. Finish with sporty accessories for the dream work-and-play pairing.

"This bag is such a winning combo, use it for a farmer’s market sweep or just fill it with things that need a stylish home."

Bright Young Things

The blazer is this season’s key cover-up, so make yours count. Worked in bold Yves Klein blue, this striking number adds a vibrant pop to a simple summer ensemble.

Pretty Perfect

Street meets sweet in this fresh, modern mix as the prettiest of summer dresses is topped with a laidback stripy shacket. Swapping sneakers for heels will give the look legs, carrying you into evening and beyond.

Grand Designs

A statement jacket – like this supersized, tie-front design – deserves centre stage, so pair it with easy summer separates and let modern tailoring do the talking.
