Nothing says summer-ready like a crisp wardrobe bursting with whites and all things floral. Don’t let the weather play spoilsport on your plans to play dress up though: Michael Kors wants you to swap your LBD for a statement white blazer, Céline is going XXL with its bag sizing metric and Valentino has the sweetest little mini bags for those who aren’t ready to get with the invasion of the extra large bags. Trust us, you’re going to want to bookmark this.
5 summer buys you need in your wardrobe
Heirloom jewellery paired with dreamy dresses should be your go-to evening look. Alexander McQueen’s wildflower-print chiffon dress with jewellery is the frontrunner
The white blazer is the new LBD. Follow Michael Kors and pair one with a knee-high slit dress. For extra drama, try adding embellishments, as seen at Dior.
X-tra large bags
X-tra large bags at Chanel and Céline make the updated handbag diktat very clear: it’s either too small or too big, nothing in between. How to carry off this extreme trend? They work best with structured, tailored pieces and looks.
Pool slides are the undisputed stars of the moment. Add floral accents to lend playfulness to their practicality.
Mini bags may lack in size, but they make up for it in personality. Valentino’s high-on-impact lipstick-and-mirror holder is the perfect example. And Anya Hindmarch and Fendi’s versions are ideal carryalls for your iPhone and compact.
