French Quarter Motif Silk Twill Shirt, £349

Charlotte Collins

Deputy Editor

“I’ve always loved a silky co-ord. This playful French Quarter print lends itself effortlessly to long summer days and nights. Chunky gold and woven slippers give it a cool, modern edge.”

Smocked Tiered Jersey Dress, £265

Florence Eyres

Junior Shopping Editor

“I’m always drawn to feminine dresses. I’ll be throwing this classic crewneck over my shoulders for a nod towards collegiate fashion.”

Laura Black

Managing Editor

“A few buttons undone, collars up, cuffs turned back… It’s all in the styling of the classic striped shirt. I’ll be layering a varsity sweater over the top for extra preppy feels.”

Striped Blouson-Sleeve Cotton Shirt, £125
Knit Double Breasted Blazer, £349

Lu Hough

Fashion & Creative Director

“I love mixing formal and casual for a cool, modern take on classic style. The blazer and tailored trousers add polish, while the cap and trainers keep things laidback.”

Bias Cut Double Faced Satin Gown, £439

Amrit Mann

Editorial Assistant

“Lemon is such a great colour for summer, especially with gold jewellery. The simplicity of this dress means it has endless styling possibilities. I’ll be taking it easy in flats.”
