STYLE IT OUT

SUMMER DREAMS: IN THE CITY

Dip into a cool, calm sea of style with our gleaming summer edit. This year we’re taking a laid-back, dapper approach to dressing — with open-air rooftops, dinner dates and after-work drinks back in the calendar. We’ve taken inspiration from 1950s Havana to bring you the most hardworking, sun-seeking styles to embrace, whether you’re cooling your heels by azure waters or not. Your hero piece is a modern palm print shirt, dressed up or down it’s guaranteed to add a burst of personality and put you in the mood for summer in the city. If you don’t see yourself as the print ‘type’ then veer towards the low-key side with soft textured polos or relaxed, neutral suiting for some newfound confidence. And as easy as that, you’ll be serving smooth style all summer long.
