Could you go without your staples?
Could you go for any length of time without your jeans or black wardrobe staples?
This summer, the main trends are pattern and colour – and lots of it – but cute day dresses and jumpsuits seems to be the outfit of choice.
So is it possible to ditch the jeans and black trousers and don colourful and feminine dresses as we float through the summer? The current weather certainly makes me think so.
For this to work, you need to make casual dresses your new staple, as well as stocking up on fabulous officewear.
I love the Dihana Sweater Dress. With its navy and red stripes it's bang on for the nautical trend but the long sleeves and knee-length hemline make it really wearable.
Wear with boots and a stylish belt for the office, but swap these for cute white deck shoes when you're out with friends.
If you want something a little smarter, I recommend the Sharna printed dress.
With a large floral print it's definitely en vogue this season, while the empire lines is ideal for work or play.
