GET THE LOOK – Follow Hilary Swank’s contemporary summer style
With the changeable weather this season, it is always good to have a summer outfit in your wardrobe that brings a little bit of brightness to the day, but that will still keep you warm should a blustery breeze arise. Hilary Swank recently stepped out in a perfectly matched combination for the unpredictable forecast and here are some suggestions for pieces that will help you get the look, minus her adorable pooch.
The Harrods sale kicked off last Saturday and one great bargain is these Power Skinny Jeans from the Victoria Beckham Denim Collection (purchase here). With jeans, it is all about the fit and this is something that Victoria is very aware of when she designs her clothes. Previously priced at £179, you can now pick these jeans up for £99.95; they will hug and flatter your figure at the same time.
Bring your own rays of sunshine to the day by teaming the jeans with this pretty yellow shirt from Equipment, which is available from Net-a-porter (£230 purchase here). For a casual look, leave the first few buttons undone, or if you want to make an edgy statement, you can leave them done up to the neck and add a deep blue tie.
Black accessories can be a little harsh for the lighter days, so channel shades of navy instead. This leather-trimmed belt (£260 purchase here) by Proenza Schouler features a modern brass buckle and it will add some definition to your waist. The buckle will also complement the detail on Mulberry’s classic Ink Blue Tassle Bag (£995 purchase here), which features a gold studded rim.
Finally, complete your look with the Athena sandals from Gina (£430 purchase here). Embellished with Swarovski ‘Met Blu’ diamante, these flats are finished in soft navy suede metallic leather and will allow you to stroll along the streets in both comfort and style.
