Looking for some seasonal sartorial inspiration? Us too. There’s no better place than the streets of New York to discover clever styling tricks and fresh ways of reworking your summer staples. Here are some of our favourite looks.
Frayed denim, loafers and a twist on nautical chic with this striped and lace-trimmed top create a really on-trend but understated look.
This is safari chic with a capital C. The utilitarian skirt is balanced beautifully by a simple black turtleneck (the key neckline for AW16) and an elegant pair of ankle-strap heels.
So simple but so sophisticated. Head-to-toe navy with black accessories, and gold jewellery to add further polish. Gorgeous.
A great mix of textures here: silk, denim and leather. The biker boots toughen up the girlishness of the dress and the denim shirt tied casually around the waist looks effortlessly cool.
These high-waisted, stone-washed denim are very Bananarama and reflect fashion’s love of all things 80s. The silk top and animal-print heels bring the look bang up to date though.
Great use of colour-blocking here, plus the white cropped turtleneck prevents the outfit from being too dense.
Traditional summer stripes are freshened up in multi-colours. The star detailing on the shoes is a subtle way to mix up prints within one outfit.
A white shirt is such a cool and easy option for summer – smart and fresh. Bunched up sleeves, trainers and a fringed skirt add laid-back charm to the whole outfit.
Preppy always looks fresh and youthful in summer. Silver brogues make this outfit more contemporary than classic.
Culottes are given a cool flourish with flamenco-style frills. The simplicity of the rest of the outfit makes this work. Matching the colour of your shoes to your trousers is always leg-lengthening.
