Lu Hough: I love this – Alison mixes statement trousers with a simple white body, oversized shirt and neutral accessories for a casual, yet vibrant, look.
Polly Sayer: On paper, snake print trousers never scream chic to me, but Alison has changed my mind. Pared back with an oversized white shirt, they feel more understated and cool than gaudy.
LH: On the surface, this outfit is really simple, but the slit in the skirt and ruching round the waist elevates it.
PS: I love how relaxed this look is, but it still makes an impact. There’s not too much going on, but it just proves that with a matching two piece like this, there’s no need to over accessorise.
LH: This look is understated but so effective – if you need any more evidence that supersizing is a shortcut to making any outfit look cooler, this should do it.
PS: I totally agree. If everything was shorter and form fitting, it wouldn’t be nearly as swoon-worthy. I also love how she’s tucked one half of the shirt in and casually draped a sweater over her shoulders – small details like this can make a look feel far more considered instead of frumpy.
LH: The exaggerated volume on the shoulder is the obvious talking point here, but for me, it’s the shoes that steal the show. Who doesn’t love an embellished heel?
PS: Emili’s known for wearing bright colours, but she looks amazing in this all black look. That bardot neckline with puff sleeves keeps things interesting – kudos to her for adding a tiny pop of colour with that neon green nail paint, too.
LH: What a way to style a bump! While the socks and shoes combo might not be for everyone, the oversized collar adds a feminine touch to this all leather look.
PS: From the knees up, I adore this. Sadly, the socks and shoes are a bit too 'schoolgirl' for my taste, but I do appreciate how the black and white tie in with the blouse and dress. The contrast between tough leather and a girly collar is also super cool.
LH: This could be one of my favourite outfits of the summer. The cornflower blue Jacquemus dress with elongated tassels is a statement in itself, but paired with killer white heels, cat-eye sunnies and gold jewels, it’s easy and super chic.
PS: This shade of blue is so gorgeous. Rikke hasn’t shied away from statement accessories either, despite the maximal tassel detail – unexpected, but she totally pulls it off.
