Part of the boho 2.0 revival, disc belts are back in vogue. If we had any doubts, seeing how style influencer Monikh pairs hers with breezy linens (rather than noughties low-riding jeans) grounds the look firmly in the now.

In need of dress-up inspiration? Think pink! We love how feel-good this effervescent pink look is on Spanish fashion designer Maria de la Orden. Whether you’re headed to the races, a summer wedding or a garden party throw caution to the wind with a floor-sweeping pink dress or a two piece. (Plus, read our guide on how to be the best dressed guest here.)

Another dress-up muse, Alexa Chung heralds the ladylike trend, which is big news for autumn, in archive Victor & Rolf couture, replete with ultra-feminine frilled gloves.

Polka dots are a classic fabric we’ll always choose and we love how they’re updated for summer in an elegant square-neck shift dress with a brown and white colour palette. (Speaking of, see an edit of the prettiest summer dresses THE GLOSS editors love here.)

White on white? Yes, please! Rosie Huntington Whiteley is inspiring us to colour drench in the chicest shade of all. These pleat-front trousers are the Liza trousers by cult brand Tove Studio, but we’ve seen similar at The Frankie Shop and Marks & Spencer.

Speaking of white, we love this clean and simple Aje dress worn by model Elsa Hosk, who is making us consider if we can pull off an old Hollywood headscarf.

Danish style influencer Sidsel Alling makes the case for stirrup leggings and ballet flats. Go all black on the bottom and team with a sharp blazer for some polish. Our favourite layers underneath? A super soft T-shirt or a box-fresh blue striped shirt.

Is a white lace mini dress the dress of the summer? Vintage inspired, classic and eternally in style, there’s a reason why this look pervades. Seek out brands such as Dôen, Loeffler Randall and Sézane. (Equally, check resale sites such as Vestiaire Collective and Depop for the perfect little white dress.)

On the topic of white, we love an off-white blouse paired with tan leather, as inspired by the Chloé AW24 runway collection. Hunt down a vintage blouse to do your best Left Bank impression.

Summer temperatures not turning out as you’d hoped? Lean into classic staples like simple grey knits, jeans and square-toe flats. You’ll be warm and look enduringly chic!
