Outfit: Trophy Jacket and Frill Sleeves







Sunglasses: ASOS
Jacket: c/o Boohoo
Blouse: c/o Boohoo
Trousers: c/o Boohoo
Flats: ASOS 

When it comes to style, I like to do an elevated version of casual, whether that's a plain white tee in a really nice cut and quality fabric, or taking a silk dress and wearing it over wide leg trousers and flats. Here, it's about pairing rolled-up, slightly loose black trousers and slip-on flats with a frill-sleeved blouse and jersey trophy jacket, complete with embroidered trim. Easy, but effective.

Outfit: Ganni Dress over Jeans






Dress: Ganni
Ear Cuff: c/o Felice Dahl
Jeans: ASOS
Shoes: Topshop (similar)

Last week I was invited to Tastecard's 10th birthday at Manchester's Hotel Gotham. It was a great evening of drinking wine on the roof terrace with incredible views right across the city - and given it was an unusually warm evening, I opted to wear this plunge neck dress from Ganni (this is the kind of thing where small boobs are a blessing). 

I bought it the last time I was in Copenhagen from the Ganni Postmodern store (which I'll definitely be visiting again when I'm there for fashion week in August) and love how the long, oversized shape balances out the low-cut neckline. I popped some jeans underneath to dress it down slightly, and added a bit of colour with these Topshop block heels.

Outfit: Shirt Dress over Wide Leg Trousers






Shirt Dress: c/o New Look
Trousers: COS
Shoes; Topshop

Last week I featured this shirt dress in a casual, everyday look for holiday - one that you can just throw on for exploring the local city or over a swimsuit for the beach. I love an item of clothing that I can wear a load of different ways so when it comes to evening, I'd use it as a layer over wide leg trousers or culottes, like this dark green pair from COS.

Outfit: Neutral Layers







Tunic: Zara
Culottes: Warehouse (similar)
Sandals: c/o Dorothy Perkins (similar)

A tunic over culottes is one of my go-to looks, purely because I love the ease of comfort as well as the silhouette it creates. I recently added this lightweight knitted tunic from the Zara sale to my collection and have been wearing it with neutral colours for a simple look that suits the British summer.

Outfit: Oversized Shirt Dress







Sunglasses: ASOS
Dress: c/o New Look
Bag: Zara
Flats: c/o New Look 

For some reason holiday dressing throws the best of us. We're either tempted to wear things we normally wouldn't, or throw a load of pieces in our suitcases with reckless abandon, tipping the scales at the airport and risking that pesky extra charge. New Look has created a whole hub based around this dilemma - take a look at their Style on Tour or Holiday Helper for the ultimate holiday style guide - something I've taken advantage of with this dress. 

When it comes to my holiday wardrobe, I try to build mine around a few key versatile items. An oversized shirt dress is one of the first pieces I pack; it can be worn over your bikini to the beach, on its own with flats for a casual daytime look - like I've done here - or dressed up and layered for evening (watch out for my next blog post to see how I wear it come nighttime).
