Summer in the City

We all know dressing for work during the summer can be tricky, but this outfit provides the solution to those wardrobe dilemmas. Patterned trousers teamed with a lightweight, floaty top offer a comfortable yet smart look thatai??i??s easily dressed up or down. This pairing works best with strappy heeled sandals and simple jewellery.

Wedding Belle

Stand out style isnai??i??t just reserved for the bride, this elegant yet modern piece is a feminine number that will suit a range of personalities. Add chunky, cleated sole shoes and a floral headband for a bang-on-trend wedding guest outfit, or team with a fascinator and classic courts for a more traditional look.

Charlotte McCourt

I'm Charlie (officially Charlotte if I'm talking to distant relatives or I'm in trouble), Online Copywriter, foodie and lover of all things monochrome. I'm a big fan of chunky boots, trainers, roll neck jumpers and good white wine. When I'm not writing for House of Fraser, you can find me exploring South London, cooking up something yummy or nursing an addiction to creating Pinterest boards for things I have no intention of buying. My style icons are Kerry Washington as 'Olivia Pope' in 'Scandal' for her beautiful coat collection and Gemma Arterton for her haircut and laid-back tailoring. My true loves in life are Fashion, Family, Feminism and my dogs Frank & Herbie.
