STYLE NOTES:

BREAK IT UP: Break up a head-to-toe palette with crisp white or considered greige like Giorgio Armani.

DIVIDE AND CONQUER: Pistachio short suits are a hot Instagram commodity. Wear the shorts now with a tie-waisted shirt and pair the blazer with warm coffee colours for post-lockdown work attire.

LIGHTEN AND BRIGHTEN: Make cool tones extra fun with this season’s puff sleeves and ruffle silhouettes.

DIP IN: Trying it on for size? Opt for low commitment pieces like a pair of sunglasses or a handbag.
