There are many French women whose style I covet, from Coco Chanel to Caroline de Maigret. But when it comes to spring/summer dressing, it's Brigitte Bardot whose riviera-chic ensembles I look to for wardrobe ideas. But while I appreciate vintage fashion, I often find myself wanting something more modern. Luckily I stumbled across Swedish blogger Matilda Djerf, who is easily 2018's answer to Bardot. The influencer is regularly spotted in warmer climes wearing Cannes-ready outfits I'm planning to re-create for my upcoming holidays, and I know you'll want to do the same. Ready to start thinking about your summer wardrobe? Keep scrolling.
Style Notes: Red and white stripes look so flattering on glowy skin. Add a couple of pieces of delicate jewellery too and you'll look divine in the summer sun.
Style Notes: Could this be more Bardot? From the tousled hair to the wrap dress, impeccable tan and two-tone pumps, we're adding this to our Pinterest holiday board.
Style Notes: White tops will always look incredible with a post-holiday glow. Take a tip from Matilda and wear a cropped version with high-waisted trousers.
Style Notes: A long white dress doesn't just have to be for brides. Pick one that's patterned for the ideal holiday evening dress.
Style Notes: Ruffles and stripes on a minidress is such a cute look. Just remember to keep hair and makeup minimal to make sure it remains grownup.
Style Notes: A silk scarf is a must to wrap around the head when you hair is in a loose romantic plait.
Style Notes: When you get home from your travels, there's nothing chicer than wearing a pair of red boots, a miniskirt and a trench to show off that post-holiday glow.
Style Notes: Of course, you're not summer-ready without a pair of oversized sunnies.
Style Notes: To add a touch of sophistication, combine Bardot and Bianca Jagger with this white suit.
