Look of the Week


Stuck in a rut and getting bored on wearing denim and blue suit trousers? Summer is the time to take a risk and try something new. One of summer’s biggest trends is the light trouser - perfect for days in the sun (whenever they may be). 

The lightweight fine hopsack trousers at Chester Barrie are perfect for those spring days when a jean or chino just wont do. These trousers are flat-fronted, fitted with side adjusters and gently tapered. We imagine them to be the sort of thing you might see Jay Gatsby in over a weekend. They are also the perfect accompaniment for a beautifully tailored summer jacket. Look to River Island, who are leading the way in coloured suits this season, with this light blue design being one of the most wearable. A simple knit works well to bring the two together - we recommend a beige polo from John Smedley - simple the best knitwear that money can buy. 

For a formal event, sneakers are a no-go. To keep a sense of fashion flair, invest in a pair of Gucci’s highly acclaimed horesbit backless loafers. Available at Mr Porter, they may not be the most practical of shoes, but they are among the most statement shoes this season.
