Summer style hero: the dress

“Dresses are such an easy summer option, especially when you don’t have much time in the morning, like me, racing around after little ones. Just throw a dress on and you look instantly together. I always try to think how things will work into my wardrobe and that’s why I love these two dresses. The cool boho-vibe red dress will look brilliant in autumn (the colour’s made for it!) paired with boots and a leather jacket. And I love layering up this slip dress – but it could just as easily be worn on its own to a beach bar with nothing more than a bright lipstick.”

Summer style hero: the midi skirt

“I’m really loving midi skirts right now. They are so easy to wear and flattering on every body shape – because I'm so short they look more maxi on me, which I love! This pleated pattern skirt is really special. The pink, navy and mustard palette and mix of prints is really pretty – it also means the skirt doesn’t need clever styling to make it sing, so pair it with a simple white T-shirt and let it be the star of the show. This beautiful flower polka-dot midi looks great worn with a denim shirt or navy tee; simple but elegant with the soft frill adding flair.”

Summer style hero: the Nineties trend

“I love the sports luxe trend so this side-stripe skirt has become a style go-to for me over the past few months. I’ve pushed the retro vibe even more by wearing the slogan tee cropped with a knot – it looks cool and helps nip you in at the waist. This Nineties vibe skater dress is perfect for summer – it’s just one of those dresses that fits like a dream and looks great dressed up with heels or down with trainers – the bright red looks amazing in the sunshine too.”

Summer style hero: the trousers

“You don’t normally associate summer with trousers, but we’ve had such an amazing range this season that it’s totally made me re-evaluate my summer vibe! Jumpsuits have become a firm favourite of mine, because they look good, are comfortable and very easy to style (basically because you don’t have to use any brainpower). This floral all-in-one is a winner – it’s elegant with a sense of fun. I've only just discovered the white trousers with the side-stripe and I love them. The relaxed fit is perfect for summer and they look great with heels or flats.”
