Trench season isn’t over just yet! As we wait for the good weather to come back, we’ll be embracing preppy classics such as camel trenches (perfect for dodging May showers) and shirting. Loosen up the look by swapping loafers for tennis-inspired trainers.

Cocktail hour calls for smart separates. A silk or satin blouse, paired with a mini skirt and kitten heels, is a sleek alternative to a romantic dress.

Waistcoats are trending and the cream renditions available now are enduringly chic. Pair with co-ordinating trousers and ballet flats for the ultimate in elegance.

It’s not just about full white skirts for summer (although we love those, too: see our favourite styles here). A quilted style is an alternative that oozes feminine appeal. This one, pictured, is by Spanish label Co.

Butter yellow is quickly becoming the new summer neutral, a nice accompaniment to shades of cream and ecru. We love Monikh’s striking, floor-length yellow dress paired with a black boxy blazer – it’s the perfect way to temper the look, especially when the weather isn’t playing ball with your outfit!

Striped, pyjama inspired trousers in linen and cotton-poplin fabrics are set to be huge for summer. But how do you wear them now? French influencer Anne Laure Mais makes the case for adding a suede trench coat into the mix. As for shoes, w’d wear ours with ballet flats or loafers.

Who said black suiting wasn’t for summer? Take a three-piece into a lighter realm by pairing it with dramatic gold jewellery, Greek-style tan leather sandals and a woven bag (see our favourite basket bags here).

A leather shacket (that is, a shirt-cum-jacket) and flared jeans are a nod to 1970s dressing we can get on board with. Finish the look with a great pair of ballet flats (shop an edit of the best flat shoes here). 

Meanwhile, for workwear, a pleated mini skirt is top of our wish list, especially when paired with a tonal blazer and jacket, as worn by creative director of J Crew Olympia Gayot.

A pair of pleated trousers (preferably in cream or white) and a lightweight knit are a firm favourite now that the weather is a little warmer. Wear with trainers for a casual look or, for something a little more dressy, a pair of minimalist, strappy shoes with a kitten heel.
