We met up with Patricia Campbell the Commericial Editor at Elleuk.com and co-founder of Frenchkissvintage.com. We chatted fashion over Pimms in sunny St. James' Park and she gave us her top styling tips and her top 5 picks for this Spring and Summer season.
Masculine, yet still short enough to be sexy, these mid-rise denim cut offs are a Spring wardrobe essential. I've got a California road trip coming up and these would be right on the money for bumming around Big Sur. At the risk of looking like a rookie cowgirl, I would swap the check shirt for a boxy cropped tee (especially as I plan to have abs of steel by the time my trip comes around).
After last season's muted palette of camel, stone and nude, what a joy it was to witness an explosion of riotous colour on the Spring/Summer catwallks. Join me in welcoming feel-good colour back onto the fashion agenda with this stunning Tucker blouse. I love the painterly quality of the print, and the diaphanous silk and artfully positioned gathers lend it a lovely ethereal quality.
As we welcome in the season of festivals and barbeques, it pays to have a go-to denim shirt at the ready. I love the simple, androgynous feel of this one, and the pale wash with darker edges around the pockets gives it a lovely modern edge.
Never underestimate the power of a neutral knit. I love the undone feel of this jumper by Elizabeth & James Dottie. It's perfect for the unpredictable spring weather, when so often a warm and sunny day will turn chilly in the blink of an eye. Wear with frayed denim cut-offs and scuffed up Chelsea boots.
With this truly delightful button up denim dress you can tick off two Spring trends in one: 1970s and white. Maybe it's due to the fact it looks a little bit like a pinafore, or down to those wonderfully unexpected back pockets- or even that oh-so-easy to wear A-line silhouette- but I'm a massive fan of this dress and am dying to pair it with tan leather platforms, big hair and a glossy pout.
