Which item of clothing do you think is key for this summer and why?
My key item for summer is definitely an army jacket/shirt. The one I’m wearing is from a charity shop, so they can be found for really cheap! I think this is the perfect way to make girly dresses look a little more edgy. They are also great for keeping warm on cooler days. After all, the British summers can be a bit chilly!
“How would you style this piece?
I’ll be wearing this jacket chucked over cutesy dresses & shorts. It makes a fab cover up if you don’t want to flash too much flesh!
