Maria has teamed one of SS15’s standout statement pieces, the button-through denim skirt, with an on-trend floral print shirt and chunky-look flats for an easy off-duty look. Perfect for warm days wandering through the city.

Nothing says summer like a simple cotton midi dress, and this printed floral style is a cut above the rest thanks to its halter-neck and side vent detailing. Make like Maria and keep accessories to a minimum for maximum impact.

Printed Dress, £45.99 | Zara



Printed wide-leg trousers were big news on the catwalks, and the secret to keeping this look flattering is to follow Maria’s lead and pair your high-waisted pair with a simple cropped sweater to accentuate a toned middle.
