Shopping with Chantal Column: Summer at centre:mk – create your own classic

centre:mk’s PR & Digital Marketing Manager ChantalLawren Welch believes that summer is the perfect excuse to add some new pieces to your wardrobe…

For our latest campaign shoot we took inspiration from London Fashion Week trends to recreate wearable looks available from around centre:mk.

First up is a nod to the mod, with this hot pink suit from Next. Tutti Frutti suiting is a serious summer trend with yellow, cerise and blue tones coming through in many of our stores.

Pop a silk cami under the jacket for a chic romantic look (perfect for a summer wedding), alternatively why not follow our model’s cue and go all-out 60s style with white boots and statement sunnies!

You’ve probably noticed that a must have this season is the highly wearable and flattering boiler suit.

There are lots to choose from in stores like M&S, Fatface, Next and Primark… style it up with a stand out belt and statement bag like this one from River Island. Or keep it casual and youthful with stacked canvas plimsolls.

Boys can be bold with colour this summer, bringing in clashing prints and neon hues. This shirt and short combo from River Island would look just as smart in the city or on a beach, wear it with a handy bum-bag (yes they’re back in fashion this season!) – but this time round worn across the body.

Floaty summer dresses like this one from Monsoon will take you from office to al fresco drinks in no time. Team with killer heels (yellow stilettos: Kurt Geiger) for a playful pop of colour and elegance.

Finally, if you’re searching for something office appropriate in the hotter months, why not take a nod to the modern beige trend by teaming a block colour dress such as this one from John Lewis with nude heels and bag (Hobbs), throwing over a classic trench – (just in case there’s even a hint of a shower forecast!)

We just love the addition of this 70s inspired headband from River Island to keep unruly heat wave hair off your brow.
