When it comes to the theory that black has no place in a summer closet, a cute polo top clearly proves otherwise. Pair with cropped jeans and a suntan to make a style statement. If plain isn’t your thing, it’s worth knowing that stripes (a perennial favourite) are really having a moment this year. While we love a traditional striped T-shirt, there are plenty of new ways to earn your stripes this season. Throw out your belief that blue and green should never be seen – a flash of teal will reinvent a classic nautical look.
Soft fabrics and pretty shapes add a ladylike elegance to your summer closet without being too girly. This striped shirt dress feels easy and breezy but the nipped-in waist keeps it flattering. Style with a cross-body bag and sandals when the temperature cranks up a notch.
It’s a sad truth that you can’t get through a summer without a jacket to hand, but this season’s cover-ups are covetable enough to make up for it. Mix up your stripes by combining a nautical blazer with a classic striped tee. This mash-up looks best with simple bottoms such as jeans or turned-up shorts. Another option when the weather’s breezy is the never-out-of-style denim jacket – much like the leather jacket, this closet staple can be flung over any outfit for a cool but casual finish.
