With ‘neutral’ as fashion’s tone of the season, these pieces are offering an easy approach

There is something about eschewing the typical summer ‘look’ that feels liberating. And where overtly floral dresses and colour blocking — once signifiers of the arrival of warmer weather — have fallen somewhat out of fashion, it’s the simple, subtle pieces in neutral tones that are staking their claims in our wardrobes.

This summer, why not invest in fashion that is versatile, wearable and that exudes a more relaxed approach to the season? Here, we round up the new pieces that are helping us do exactly that, and should be your first port of call when thinking about building your seasonal wardrobe.
