What to wear this Spring/Summer
As all the top trends hit the shelves this season, here are some picks to jump start your wardrobe.
1. Be inspired by Parisian glamour with Karl Lagerfeld’s Spring/Summer collection, which melds urban flare with the city’s chic style. Take your pick from a silk-satin bomber or a neatly tailored blazer, paired with a straight skirt to complete your look for the season.
2. Turn heads in Kenzo’s reinvented raincoat-style dresses in airy fabrics, or a structured military-print dress, paired with a shiny cross-body clutch bag.
3. Is the laid-back look more your style? Choose from Michael Kors, where boho-chic meets glamour.
4. Nothing beats a classic suit. Invest in British menswear house Hackett’s signature piece.
