Dresses are my go-to for easy one-piece style. Beautiful boho blouses paired with faded denim jeans will be high on my list, too. Look out for on-point accessories that will work with everything.

 I’m determined to own less and wear more – so I’m looking to great brands for classic, chic staples. These pieces can be dressed up or down and reworked in so many different variations.

I’m after summer updates that are English-weather appropriate: heavy linens, easy layers and longer hemlines. I love styles that nip you in at the waist. Pair with accessories such as mules and raffia bags.

Joanne Toolan

Senior fashion assistant 

These are staple pieces, whether back in the office or out on a hot day. I can mix and match them to make a more professional look with mules and an open shirt, or keep it casual in sandals and a vest top.

Stephanie Sofokelous

Fashion assistant

I like putting a grungy twist on everything I wear – and tend to take more risks with clothes when I can see them on a hanger. I’m excited to hit the high street again and explore my style.
