Mastering the art of warm-weather layering is an infallible way to achieve an instantly polished look. An oversized shirt is an effortless choice for days when a little more coverage is needed; style either a linen or satin shirt over a simple top and pair with tailored trousers and sandals for an easy-yet-sophisticated daytime look. In the event of a heatwave, a pair of linen shorts provide an elevated take on office wear but can also be worn from brunch-to-bar.

Merging style and comfort is the way forward when it comes to spending summer in the city. A pair of wide-leg trousers crafted from light fabrics, such as cotton, linen, and satin, will prove to be a worthy investment. These styles tend to create a perfectly balanced look while also creating the illusion of an elongated silhouette, adding immediate poise to any ensemble. Style a pair of wide-leg trousers with a form-fitting top and sandals to curate a flattering outfit to explore London in.

Denim has been a long-standing wardrobe staple for decades; however, it has recently received a contemporary update. Infinitely versatile, a denim piece doesn’t feel out of place in the office and can be equally as appealing for day-to-night plans. The denim maxi skirt in particular has received a spotlight moment this season, proving that longline silhouettes can be just as desirable as their mini counterparts throughout warmer months. This piece can easily be styled with a T-shirt, racer bodysuit or Cami top for an elegant off-duty look. Take an elevated approach to the denim trend by choosing a denim dress paired with heels and accessories.

A forever classic, a linen piece promises to deliver easy elegance throughout this summer and next. Its natural texture lends an air of minimalist luxury to everyday looks, while a lightweight and airy feel gives warm-weather appeal. This versatile fabric has been crafted into countless iterations; a puff sleeve dress adds an element of romance to alfresco venues, from garden parties to rooftop bars, whereas a linen blazer instantly elevates any work-to-weekend ensemble.

Whether for a date night or evening with friends, it’s essential to own at least one outfit that can be relied on from sunrise to sunset, especially in London. When in need of a touch of glamour, choose an embellished slinky dress that can be styled with sandals or heels.
