I Just Discovered the Cutest High-Street Co-Ord

When it comes to dressing for summer, I take the "more is more" approach. I go for loose linen jumpsuits, flowing trousers and dresses, white jeans, and seersucker tops with puff sleeves (all the better for ventilation). If you haven't gathered already, I tend to cover up when the sun comes out.

That's partly because I want to protect my skin but also because the UK weather is so changeable that I will inevitably get cold and need to rely on trusty layers to cope with the hourly shift in temperatures. But then I spied a crop-top–and-miniskirt daisy print co-ord from & Other Stories

It has all the markings of an outfit I'd usually avoid⁠—"mini" and "crop top" aren't words to describe anything in my daily wardrobe. However, there is a heatwave, people, and both these items, whether worn together or separately have the power to transform an outfit. Personally, I love the square neck on the crop top and can imagine wearing it with a pair of high waisted wide-leg white jeans I've got in my wardrobe. I'd also say that the mini would look incredible with a white T-shirt or loose shirt tucked in. As for the shoes⁠, opt for strappy heels or classic white sneakers—from brands such as Veja or Superga. And if you're into the full shebang, might I suggest taking tips from the two women below who pull the co-ord off with aplomb. Keep scrolling to see the look.…
