Fashion: what to wear when the sun shines this summer
With comfort a priority, the beauty of this summer’s style lies in its ease
Ask any fashion aficionado to name the must-have item for the season and you might expect an answer in line with the recent trend for showmanship. A name-check for Versace’s sky-high platforms, say, or Proenza Schouler’s brightly coloured fringed dresses.
But the actual answer might surprise in its lowkeyness. Not polarising or budget-blowing, it’s a piece so versatile that it appeases even the toughest critics, and the chances are you might already own one.
