If you look in my saved folder on Instagram, you'll most likely find (amongst cute cats) many pictures of my top influencers' outfits. I see this feature as my easier, streamlined answer to Pinterest, often used to refer back to my favourite looks when I'm having one of those freakout "I own no clothes" kind of days.
Whilst perusing my saved section this week, I realised that there's a pattern in the types of outfits I'm bookmarking and wanting to re-create for summer 2019. So I've broken it down into easy outfit equations. Maths wasn't particularly my strong point at school, but it's as easy as adding key pieces to curate perfect pairings. From dad sandals and maxi dresses to shorts and blazers, scroll down to see the five outfit formulas that I think are worth dipping into this month's paycheque for.
Maxi Dress + Dad Sandals
Coloured Denim + Coloured Denim
Style Notes: Monochrome never fails, so if it isn't broke then stick with it. It's the chic combo I always rely on for summer events, and there are so many dreamy white dresses popping up this season. Keep it streamlined and a little '90s for the win—like the ever-chic Pernille.
Floral Top + Jazzy Trousers
Blazer + Shorts
Style Notes: I wear a blazer all year round. When it's cooler, it's for layering, and when it's summer, it's the lightweight cover-up to carry when you're in the UK. Cycling shorts are a trend thanks to the likes of Chanel, but I suggest giving a pair of longer length denim or tailored shorts a go instead if you aren't quite sure.
