3 New Season Buys You’ll Never Regret

If you’re looking for longevity from your new season buys, take a look at the list below. These pieces aren’t just for SS17, they’re for life.

Gingham may be the material of the moment, but because this cheesecloth print has long-held associations with the beautiful Brigitte Bardot, it will never look out of place worn on a sandy beach or in a Mediterranean village. I love the soft shade of powder blue too. Red gingham can look a little too like a tablecloth for me.

Gingham top, €75 at uterque.com

Culottes, like jumpsuits, have been around for so many’seasons that they’ll never not be in style. I adore these gorgeous vanilla white culottes from Zara. The texture will really elevate an outfit, and they’ll look elegant paired with other neutrals.

Jacquard culottes, €49.95 at Zara

If you buy one dress this season, make it a shirtdress. In my mind, shirtdresses?are a classic, but they were especially prominent on the SS catwalks this year. I love this piece from & Other Stories, and how it’s styled, with leather trousers. It will look equally good with bare legs or cropped trousers.

Oversized shirt dress, €79 at & Other Stories
