A cape can elevate your look from practical to premium in an instant, offering instant style kudos. Accentuating and flattering, this style offers slits for the arms, not only majorly fashionable but also functional for a hot summer’s day.



A simple shift dress is an easy and chic way to nail summertime dressing without too much fuss. Accessorise with oversized sunglasses and a bigger bag to boot to keep this look minimal yet effective.



When in doubt, wear neutrals! #velvetandvino

Taking note from androgynous catwalk trends, this pairing of tapered trousers with a light shirt  and sleeveless jacket is a match made in co-ordinated heaven. Cute yet not overtly feminine, this combination sees traditional office wear turned on its head for an alternate SS take.
