So this week Spring accelerated at 100mph into high summer, leaving us in an unprepared, sweaty, style conundrum. We’ve gone from drizzle to sizzle in less time than it takes for a fake tan to develop. Whilst we’re not complaining about the weather (although we wouldn’t be British if we didn’t) this left us in something of a wardrobe quandary. What the heck do you wear in a heatwave when you are far from summer ready and not on a beach?!

The answer lies in a lightweight, easy breezy, stripe midi skirt. Fashion folk love to talk about a ‘hero piece’ and this might just be ours. Smart enough for work if teamed with kitten heels and a blouse, but equally cool with slides and a slogan tee. And when the heatwave subsides throw on a biker and trainers and you’re good to go.

Enjoy the sunshine!
