Looking for summer styling ideas for cool city dressing in the heat? We’ve scoured Instagram and Pinterest to bring you SL’s pick of the most lust-worthy street-style looks around.
Make like Fashion Me Now’s Lucy Williams and nail relaxed weekend wear in on-trend ankle-tie flats, or follow Sincerely Jules’ lead with a cross-body bag over smart tailored shorts for a put-together office-to-bar look.
From updated takes on classic pairings (hello, ripped skinnies and Breton tops) to the best ways to ace this season’s more challenging chunky sandals and culottes, scroll through our gallery for serious sartorial inspo and read on for our top five SS15 styling hacks:
For bags, it’s all about the cross-body for easy, hand-free dressing or larger, roomy totes when you need to store all your essentials with ease. With shoes, mix things up in on-trend chunky flats and lace-up gladiators or opt for simple heeled sandals with ankle-strap detailing.
As one of the biggest catwalk trends of the season, denim is an essential style component, whether you opt for ripped skinny jeans, timeless cut-off shorts or an of-the-moment indigo-hued skirt.
This season’s silhouette has been seriously supersized, so invest in the new, extra-loose style, from culottes to palazzo trousers. Team yours with a heel for the most flattering effect.
NEW SKIRT SHAPES
The skirt has taken a leading role this season, popping up in multiple guises, such as split-front midis, sheer panelled numbers and A-line button-throughs.
Classic black and white never goes out of style, so opt for one of this season’s monochrome prints, as a simple Breton top, checked shorts or one of SS15’s off-the-shoulder dresses in horizontal stripes.
