Be ready for whatever life throws at you with these stylish ‘Summer in the City’ looks that will take you effortlessly from office-to-evening. Below we have featured our favourite must have pieces from Karen Millen for sophisticated city living that include fashionable workwear to show you mean business, as well as versatile pieces for afterwork soirées.
A gorgeously feminine blouse featuring a pussy-bow neckline and ruffled shoulders. The fitted Frill Shirt is available in pale sky blue or navy. Wear with tailored black trousers or skinny jeans, or for a more casual look pair with blue denim. Accentuate the waist and add interest by styling with a coloured belt worn over the shirt, as pictured above, alternatively tuck in and opt for a black or tan leather belt and coordinate your footwear.
These high-waisted black skinny jeans are the perfect fit and will flatter any figure. So versatile, black skinny jeans are a wardrobe staple that can be worn across the seasons. Dress black skinny jeans up with a cold-shoulder top, tailored shirt or silk camisole or dress down with a slogan tee, oversized shirt and white sneakers.
The deconstruct collared sleeveless shirt in white is clinched in at the waist with a matching belt and features a low hemline. For summer wear with cropped wide-legged trousers, skinny jeans, faux leather trousers or a pencil skirt. Not a fan of bright colours, pair with neutral tones or pastel shades, such as pale pink, baby blue or mint green.
There is nothing quite like a striking red shoe to make you stand out from the crowd. This vibrant pair of red ankle wrap heels are made from high quality Italian suede. The elegant ankle ties and peep toes make them perfect for summer days and evenings out. Pair with black or denim skinny jeans, cropped wide-legged culottes or a floaty pleated skirt.
If you only invest in one pair of sunglasses this summer then make it count with these fantastic sunglasses from Karen Millen. A stylish combination of brown tortoiseshell and contrasting gold metallic, these sunglasses really do go with everything. Perfect for wearing everyday, for special occasions, events, or for lounging poolside or by the beach.
These wide-legged tailored culottes come in vivid orange and are clinched in at the waist with a d-ring belt for a flattering fit. For the office pair with a white or ivory blouse, or camisole and structured blazer. Culottes are so versatile, wear with comfortable flats by day and then slip into stiletto heels or sandals for dinner or evening drinks with friends.
