Camilla and Marc Resort 22

Far from too-buttoned-up, a lightweight waistcoat is your essential summer layer

Take Kate Moss’ early noughties festival circuit signature — the waistcoat — to the boardroom and beyond. The way to wear it is either alone, as a top itself, or layered to add a touch of sleeveless structure to a lightweight dress or shirt. Pair with wide-legged trousers, choose a print or colour-blocking, and you have the reinvented look of the season.
