Bearing a lightening bolt pattern but soft lace underlay, this look is funky but feminine. Whilst the draped duster coat and staple black bag soften the edginess of the print, femininity is also preserved through the lace lining, velvet loafer heels, and a beautiful vintage hairstyle.

Flares marked their return to fashion this year and this lady parades hers perfectly. Paired with a matching patchwork denim jacket, this denim duo is kept smart through the presence of a crisp white shirt, platforms and a navy leather handbag.

Strong, smart and structured, this look also ticks all the right boxes for its textures and colours. Sculpting the body through the printed pencil skirt, the outfit sees colour continuation into the yellow leather stilettos, whilst the vividness of the skirt is also soothed by the silky cropped blouse and its oversized bell sleeves.

Providing a photographic example of how to channel ‘smart casual’, this look creates the ideal balance of statement pieces against simplicity. Featuring a statement print maxi skirt and fedora with oversized trim, the outfit remains informal through the sequinned sweatshirt and Pilgrim style shoes. Both chic and comfortable, this outfit is perfect for a stroll along the streets of Milan.
