Whether I'm hunting down muted wardrobe staples, or in need of a more statement piece for the new season, my go-to destination is always & Other Stories. With design ateliers based in Paris, Stockholm and Los Angeles, & Other Stories amalgamates its expertise and influence from each city to create expensive-looking pieces at high-street prices.
For summer, I'm all about outfits that are easy to put together and no one does this relaxed summer dressing better than those in California. This is why at this time of year I always filter & Other Stories' website by atelier, and head straight to the Los Angeles section.
This summer the LA atelier has created everything I'd want for a summer spent outdoors. Think floaty dresses for picnics in the park, smart linen shorts for city escapes and colourful accessories to then tie it all together. There's a real focus on whimsical florals, with pink being the dominant colour palette for the collection this summer.

With sunny days just around the corner (I hope) I've taken it upon myself to search through the whole site and put together a concise edit of the best pieces to see you through the summer season. These pieces will be perfect for a summer spent at home, or to throw in your suitcase if you're heading somewhere hot.
