Summer may be imminent, but the often-unpredictable weather calls for a cool cover-up. This season’s blazers have it nailed. And here’s how to wear them…
Weekend style game in need of an update? Mine too actually. We sort of stole this outfit idea from model Karlie Kloss and her off-duty NYC wardrobe, but slogan tees are everywhere right now and we don’t like to be left out. Team a witty tee with your fail-safe blue jeans and courts and throw on a smart blazer in blush – it adds that feminine spin for a look that works just as well in Newcastle, Norwich and Northampton as it does in New York.

The Special Occasion
I’d love to rock up at a wedding in nothing but a cute cami and floral pencil skirt, but let’s not kid ourselves – even a June wedding can be a little nippy, especially when the sun goes down. So enter the ivory flute sleeve jacket – dressy enough for the dressiest of dress codes, with conversation-starting flute sleeves. Delightful!

The Girls’ Night Out
I remember the days of hitting the town without a jacket (less time in the cloakroom queue, more time on the dancefloor right?). These days I prefer NOT to accessorize my outfit with goosebumps, a little black blazer is much more chic. Thrown over an on-trend cami top – think velvet, shimmer or plissé – and worn with black skinnies and killer heels. That’s Saturday night’s look sorted.
