High Street chic

This summer you’ll be guaranteed to find inspiration on the high street. Shopping in London has never been so versatile, fabulous, and well, affordable. Catwalk-inspired looks are available to suit practically every budget and the season’s must-haves can be found anywhere, from supermarkets, to budget stores Primark, to fashion-forward high streets such as Topshop and Zara.

The trick is to spot the most stylish, well-made items and put them together in a contemporary, chic way. But don’t think that summer is all about showing off tans, midriffs and too much leg. The first rule of summer is to play it cool. Good summer references for how to dress stylishly include Gwyneth Paltrow in crisp cotton in ‘The Talented Mr Ripley,’ and Audrey Hepburn in ballet pumps and full skirts in ‘Roman Holiday,’ says Marie-Claire.

The colour for summer is irresistibly white. Mix and match different shades for a complete look or go for sharp tailoring, such as a classic white jacket over a skinny jean and vest. The classic strapless dress by Chloe has been high on every editor’s wishlist, but savvy shoppers will know it is also available in a broderie anglaise version from C&C California. Much more affordable and just as stylish.

Summer dressing should be anything but complicated. Shift and shirt dresses require little thought and are perfect shapes for day into evening. Accessorise with belts (but please, no patent with white) bows or just a simple chain necklace. Summer chic is about relaxed glamour and should be as effortless as possible. After all, the more time you spend getting ready, the less time you have to enjoy the sunshine.
