Consistent, trend-free, highly wearable. This best summarises the work of UK designer Nicole Farhi, and her new summer collection is no different. While the mainline prices have felt a little high in the past, with the pound struggling, her range has now become a more attractive buy.

When it comes to shorts, I prefer to keep things nice and simple, which is why I like this smart model from Oliver Spencer so much. The sole cut available is based on their flat front trousers, and hits at just the right length (a little above the knee). Of the color / fabric options, the Thames (left) and Malo’s (right) subdued shades of blue will compliment a variety of outfits - £95 from Oliver Spencer.
