organic clothes, eco fashion, organic clothingWhatever your style, you need just five key pieces to make your Summer wardrobe fizz like champagne and strawberries (is that Wimbledon I see on the horizon?? – Daisy).

I’m a big fan of the capsule wardrobe – the ‘take-anywhere, work-with-anything’ essentials that are more flexible than your credit card and that coordinate like a dream.

But how do you make sure that you get the right pieces?

white tailored summer jacket1.  First, there’s the jacket

When choosing your signature jacket, look for natural fabrics with high thread counts, which will add style without the weight.  An elegant cut is important – in caramel, white or dust grey, a jacket with relaxed tailoring is a must so no excuse not to look dapper.

2.  Second, the top

Right now it’s raining over Daisy Hill in St Ives, Cornwall, but we’re hopeful that it won’t last – so we’re in the market for a lightweight top.

When the sun does return (and it will), we’ll be ready with a versatile smart white shirt that creates a perfect foundation for any Summer outfit.

3.  Next you’ll need a skirt

Look for something that will skim the body and give you a great silhouette, day and night.  A butter soft cotton A-line skirt is a future classic that you’ll wear year after year.

4.  Then the trousers

Sharp lines work throughout the year, and Summer is no different.  Go for a pair that give you work-to-play flexibility; a wide leg linen is a great staple.

Blocks of bright colours can liven up any outfit, and this pair of cute little poppy ballerina pumps from Camilla Norrback will raise the bar on your chic look.

So there are your five essentials that will have you stepping out blinking into the Summer sun in style.

Are you ready to sparkle?  Don’t forget the glass of champagne.
