Lu Hough: This is how to do relaxed summer tailoring. It’s all about the proportions – the slouchy knit makes the shorts look way more effortless and I love the heeled thong sandal to add a touch of femininity.
Charlotte Collins: This is proof that summer dressing doesn’t have to be boho. Anyone who feels like big sleeves and girly details aren’t for them should look to this outfit – lightweight tailoring and unfussy separates are a stylish alternative.
LH: A leather mini shorts and knee-high boots combo doesn’t sound particularly elegant but, paired with an oversized roll neck and structured blazer, Alex looks chic and on trend.
CC: I love the 90s Ralph Lauren-ness of this look. Shorts plus a tweed blazer has serious equestrian vibes – consider this a guide for how to pull off those long boots now spring’s here.
CC: Fancy trying all the current trends in one go? Here’s a masterclass in how to do it. Western boots, mini bags, dad jeans, baseball cap... It’s 80s-inspired, Hypebeast dressing at its finest.
LH: Again, it’s all about the proportions here. The relaxed jeans and oversized blazer change this look from wrong to right. The cap is the pièce de résistance for me.
CC: I’m obsessed with the oversized fit of this suit. Sharp shoulders and a slightly flared trouser fit save it from looking too borrowed-from-the-boys, and I love the simplicity of just adding a simple white tee.
LH: The suit may be a little too big, but the princess pink shoes and beach waves make the overall feel cool and relevant.
LH: Hannah proves a tan and flip flops really are the ultimate summer accessory. There is something about the way she styled this by rolling the sleeves and trousers that makes this utility look more wearable.
CC: Evidence that off-duty dressing can still be polished. A boilersuit is a great hack for looking cool with minimum effort – flip flops only add to that ‘threw-this-look-together’ aesthetic.
LH: More proof black doesn’t mean boring when accessorised to the max. Chunky chains, layered rings, a big messy bun and a killer red lip take this look from desk to dinner.
CC: There’s something so sexy about this unfussy look. I think it’s the slightly dishevelled, vampy details – red lip, undone hair, slub sweater – but then paired with a slip skirt and grown-up accessories, it becomes unexpectedly glam.
CC: Simple and easy to replicate, this contemporary look works for so many occasions. Headed somewhere you’re unsure on the dress code? You can’t go wrong in a statement trouser, heel and tee combo.
LH: Mastering the sandwich dress rule and keeping everything else simple make this look effortless but still a win in the style stakes.
