Summer Tailoring Update

If you rely on a tailored jacket and trousers for work (or play), and flowery dresses aren't your thing, you're probably feeling sartorially stumped as to what to replace it with now that the sun is shining. 

May we suggest the on-trend shorts suit - a sharp-cut, lightweight blazer and shorts (either loose-fitting or tailored works best) combo – beautifully showcased by style mavens like Kate Bosworth, who teamed her scallop-edge shorts with a long line cover-up.

We've tracked down some of the best pieces that make for the most contemporary of office and occasionwear. We'll be wearing ours to garden parties and weddings, or teamed with flat sandals and tanned pins for everyday attire.
