This season there has been many variations on the summer shirt. The collections are bursting with Hawaiian and ocean prints that are made for wearing in sunny weather. For refined elegance look no further than Casablanca. The silk shirt combines bold graphics and a bright colour palette. But you don't have to wear bold colours to make a statement, the Saint Laurent Wild Orchid Shirt creates the perfect contrast in monochrome.

The puff sleeve has presented itself in so many variations over the seasons. The denim jacket is the ideal casual jacket for a light layer for summer evenings and this season Alexander McQueen has created a modern take emphasising the sleeves and creates a voluminous silhouette. For feminine details look to Khaite and self-portrait for ideal evening outfit tops.

As much as we like to pretend there’s no need for layers once April is over, summer can be full of unpredictable weather, making it hard to know what to wear. A failsafe wardrobe staple is the ever-trusty trench coat. Its versatility makes it suitable for every season. If you’re looking for something traditional, the Burberry Panel Trench Coat features the famous vintage check lining and a pure cotton composition. For a contemporary twist look to self-portrait, the cream Lace Trench Coat creates an effortless aesthetic.
