Lu Hough: This is proof summer style doesn't need to be super feminine. I love the chunky studded boots, and the leather shorts are a great alternative to skinnies. The plaid jacket in pink adds a nice touch of colour.
Charlotte Collins: Thought you had to retire your autumn/winter worker jacket? Think again. This shows you how to add a bit of masculine energy to bare legs.
CC: A cool coat can really make or break an outfit. Go oversized and add simple shoes, and you hardly need to accessorise.
LH: I love how she has made this oversized statement trench the focal point – styled with simple strappy sandals, it's unfussy, but still elegant and eye-catching.
LH: Jen is taking jeans and a shirt to the next level with killer accessories. These Khaite boots seriously elevate the look and the vinyl jacket feels more fashion forward than a classic leather biker.
CC: A great outfit needn’t be over-complicated, and this simple jacket and jeans combo is all about the proportions. It works because the denim crops in exactly the right place, while the jacket has just the perfect amount of boxiness.
CC: A masterclass in chic crochet, Nojin Nasty shows you don’t have to reserve it for the beach. Team a simple style with city-appropriate layers for a more polished take.
LH: A full length crochet dress could look a little like net curtains, but layered with an oversized trench and Chanel sandals it looks on trend and cool.
LH: It’s all about the details here – the ties at the ankle, the Isabel Marant fold-over belt and the chunky chain necklace add a touch of glamour to an otherwise masculine boilersuit.
CC: Not sure how to make boilersuits work? Adding patterned heels and simple, cool details gives them a wearable, more feminine spin.
CC: The ultimate high/low balance, follow Valentina’s example when it comes to making smart tailoring work for even the most off-duty of days.
LH: I’m obsessed with this look. The ripped slouchy jeans immediately remove any stuffiness from the classic black blazer. Complete with messy hair and black sunnies, it has serious attitude.
CC: We can't all have legs like Leia Sfez, but we can still take style cues from this look; a belted, oversized utility jacket is a creative way to show off some skin. Stick to flats like the Insta-star to keep the look daytime-appropriate.
LH: Despite being quite revealing, this look still feels smart and grown-up because of its slick colour palette – classic khakis and browns work together for a polished look. Turned up cuffs, a relaxed-fit tee and loose waves give it a nonchalant feel.
