|Me wearing: the 'Sailor T' by Chinti and Parker, with J Crew Liberty print trousers, a Gucci bag and Office shoes.|
It’s mid-June, and whilst I’m totally holding out for July and August, experience tells me the absence of a jacket might be as good as it gets in London this summer. But just because the weather isn’t playing ball doesn’t mean you can’t look and feel summery.
So for summer dressing in the cold, I’m relying on printed trousers (the brighter and more colourful the better), my current faves are this Liberty floral pair by J Crew, a vibrant breton stripe top: Chinti and Parker do them best, check out the coral and orange contrast ‘Sailor T’ I’m wearing above.
For added summer pizazz, give black and dark bags a rest in a favour of pastel and washed out hues, my pale blue Gucci Soho leather Disco bag fits the bill perfectly.
Ideally we’d all be wearing sandals in June, but I hate soggy toes as much as the next person so I’ve been getting lots of style miles out of my white leather Office sling-backs, which do ok in the rain and keep outfits light and fresh.
