the i-d guide to summer dressing

Yes we’re already in the mood for fall thanks to the ever-impatient show schedules but lets live in the season we’re in for now. Summer is here, it’s time to change up your wardrobe. Strip down, layer up and just have fun because at the end of the day that’s what it’s all about. With that in mind we present you with i-D’s guide to dressing this summer.

  • chunky knits

    Wooly jumpers aren’t just for winter. Think of cozying up on those chilly summer nights. Wear with your summer skin, slung off the shoulder making the look super sexy rather than dowdy. For next level hotness add a piercing like Juliana.

  • costly over costume

    This summer don’t be afraid to bring out your finest of jewels for daytime dining and boozing rather than letting them gather dust in anticipation of some special night. Contrast delicate gold and silver with dressed down basics and denim to modernise traditionally evening accessories.

  • be a band aid not a groupie

    Channel your inner Anita Pallenberg and the glory days of rock and roll. Rummage through your attic, grandmother’s wardrobe and local charity shop for some barely there fanfare gems reminiscent of the 60s and 70s. Lace up boots and a spot of Saint Laurent are definitely a sure fire way of nailing it.

  • denim dos

    Trawl through vintage shops for the best denim pieces. Find perfectly worn denim and if the shape’s not quite right get it altered, it’s worth the effort I promise. Try something as simple as taking the sleeves off an over sized denim jacket as our Fashion Editor, Jack Borkett, did to create the perfect addition to this Stella gown.
