1. Hit reverse

: “Now is the time to part with convention and remix your smartest daywear with a cocktail-hour teaser,” says Julia. “Switch a white shirt for a tailored tee with nautical button detailing for a new spin on suiting. This is the novel way to sign off your look (and it comes with full catwalk approval).”

2. Trail blazer

: “Play up the flattering proportions of a body-skimming dress with fluid black tailoring. This unfastened, calf-grazing blazer is your instant update on the gentleman’s suit jacket – perfect for days when lightweight cover-ups rule from day to night.”

3. It’s a wrap

: “Step into the collegiate wrap skirt – your fast-fix update on skirt suiting. Preppy with a ladylike twist, this easy-to-wear piece takes the hard work out of getting dressed on or off-duty. Make it city-ready with a classic white tee and box-fresh low-tops.”

4. Try the new crop

: “Here’s how to master French Riviera chic, the modern way,” says Julia. “Nothing says summer like a pair of pressed, chalky-white trousers – only this season, the cult staple has been given a tomboy feel with slouchy cuts and slashed hems. Pair with slick leather sneakers for easy-going office attire that’s so right for now.”


5. Spot the difference

: “It’s time to up your shirting game. The new season brings personality to minimalism with punchy polka dots and a waist-sculpting peplum. This is how grown-ups pull off cheery prints without losing any of the wit or attitude,” says Julia.

6. Add volume

: “Get set to make a plush leather skirt your latest daywear staple. Note the cut: forget last season’s constricting pencil silhouette – instead, cue this artful swing style (with indulgent, deep pockets). Work a slouchy-cum-chic vibe, adding a breezy mannish shirt with the cuffs rolled up – naturally.”
