Very Jackie O meets Paris Hilton – we’re loving this candy-coloured mini skirt and cropped jacket twin set. Make it street-chic with skater vibes: checkerboard high-tops, chain detailing and a baseball cap.
And immediately you’re transported on holiday. Yep, palm prints have that power. Take notes from Polish blogger Julia Kuczyńska with this 70s-style loungewear shirt and trousers combo. Clash up the casj with two-tone pumps and add sunnies to maximise the hot-weather vibe.
A play on the pyjamas-by-day trend that refuses to go away, Gigi Hadid makes it relevant for summer by going awkward on the lengths. The stripy-collared shirt lends itself to peekaboo sass with its cropped one-button fit, while the trousers stop mid-calf and are complemented by retro ankle boots. To finish? Ruby 60s-style cat-eye shades and a bright ruby bralet.
