Warm weather days call for a twist on your tailoring, and this season, fluid cuts, natural fabrics and looser shapes are everywhere. From menswear-inspired linen suits to slouchy wide-leg trousers, here’s how to do tailoring this summer.

Our go-to summer wardrobe might be little white dresses and cut-off denim, but we’re still a sucker for a smart suit or masculine shirt. Don’t let the high temperatures deter you from feeling pulled together and look to soft linens, loose-fitting suits and oversized blazers for a warm weather approach.

On the high street ARKET, H&M and & Other Stories are nailing the look, especially when it comes to less structured blazers. And if you’re looking to invest, check out the likes of Max Mara and Asceno for soft tailored pieces to keep forever.

Keep the rest of your look simple with barely-there sandals and delicate gold jewellery.

These soft pleated H&M trousers are a great way to do smart work look or chic dinner style in the heat. Look for creams, caramels and pastel hues for an alternative to classic black and white.

Wear Zara's linen wide-leg trousers and sweet boxy jacket together for a chic head-to-toe look or mix them up with summer denim and silk camis to maximise your cost per wear.
