Summer is an excellent opportunity to try out those trends that have been buzzing around for a while, with more social events going down, and brighter weather (finally).
From cold shoulders to slip camis and palazzo pants, it’s time to give them a go.
Here are our on-point looks for those key occasions, on holiday and at home, all put together with just nine key pieces.
Mix and match to create your own statement style.

If you’re going for some well-deserved after-work bevvies on Friday, you’re not going to have a whole lot of time to get ready.
So, pick an outfit that’ll take you from office to bar with ease.
And just a quick shoe change involved.
Wide-legged trousers are perfect workwear for this time of year, as they look smart while keeping you super cool.
The same goes for a printed cami, and it’ll look just as good out on the town as it does in a formal meeting.
Just swap your flats for some chunky wedges, and you’ll be ready to welcome the weekend in style.
