In case you needed capri pants inspiration, see how Claire Rose styles her black pedal pushers with kitten heels and a lightweight knit: chic.

We’re full to the brim with talk on little black dresses and little white dresses, but what about the little red dress? This one from Aligne, with its pocket detailing and perfect summer length, is firmly on our wish-list. 

Another vibrant dress to admire is this pin-tucked puff-sleeve dress in striking lipstick red by Irish label & Tate, which was inspired by Wallis Simpson. The dream look for a summer wedding or garden soirée.

It’s that time of the year where you want to trade your usual, sedate jewellery for a hodge-podge of playful trinkets and summer-approriate charms. Think: sea shells, horse shoes, evil eye motifs, as well as shots of blue and red. Look to this grown-up milieu of necklaces for inspiration. 

Speaking of summer-themed dressing, a crochet dress is a dramatic statement that is both contemporary and nostalgic. (Think Jane Birkin in the 1969 film La Piscine or Taylor Swift stepping out last week in London in a multi-coloured iteration.) Our favourite take on the trend is a white maxi-length style, we especially love it when paired with a luxe basket bag. 

If you’re craving something more pared-back, let this black and white outfit be your guiding light. The simple waistcoat looks striking when paired with black loose-fit trousers and a minimal pair of sandals. 

If you’re going on holidays with only hand luggage take inspiration from Sarah Corbett Winder’s holiday wardrobe for 48 hours in Formentera. It’s making us feel optimistic about squeezing in all of our travel essentials (read: an excess of floaty dresses and frilled blouses) on our next trip. 

The one good thing about Irish summers? A jumper, jeans and sandals outfit is the perfect combination, as seen on style influencer Anna Newton. A navy fisherman-style jumper is an excellent foil to lightwash denim jeans, too. 

Tired of striped trousers? Opt for animal print instead. This pair, pictured on Lucy Williams which are by Massimo Dutti, are the kind you’ll wear on repeat all summer long.

Add a shot of interest to an all-white outfit care of a patterned neckerchief or bandana. Opt for classic hav-a-hank print or channel the lady of the manor trend with a spot of paisley. 

Shirt dresses aren’t just for the office: the universally-flattering style is upgraded for summer in clashing prints and vibrant patterns. This one, by Australian label Alémais, is a dream investment.
