I must say that I’ve struggled for a long time when it came to my summer style. Whilst I have my winter style (almost) down to a T- leather trousers, cashmere jumpers and big coats, my summer style was a bit all over the place.

It’s not that I didn’t try. I’d always plan my summer wardrobe in advance, pouring over Vogue Collections and my favourite blogs, yet I always somehow got distracted along the way, ending up with an array of random, pink dresses, an amalgamat of Zara and The Outnet sale, a few trusted items and whatever I saw online during bathroom breaks .  It had no clear direction. This year, I wanted to change it.

I can’t profess turning it around completely but I think I got much better at streamlining my wardrobe.  One of the most important factors was to put a stop to magpie tendencies which meant no random sales or online purchases, no matter how many times I saw something on Instagram and thought it looked particularly cute. I needed to translate my love for simple clothes, clean lines and muted palette into a consistent style. I became quite good at telling myself I love it but it’s not my style. 

The second was to ask myself- what’s inspires me? I wanted my summer wardrobe to be a little more feminine than my usual style. I love black and white Italian cinema and thought about my clothes evoking classic Italian chic, Sicily and the style of Sophia Loren or Claudia Cardinale. I can’t say I’m 100% there yet but I’m working consciously on a consistent style that has very little to do with trends and everything to do with who I am.
