Initial reaction:

Easy like a Sunday morning.     

References:

The tried-and-tested Margaret Howell formula of work wear separates, clean lines and soft colour.

Unexpected details:

The drooped collars, neat bustier tops and loose sweaters revealing collarbones and décolletage.

Stand out look:

A checked t-shirt dress broke the palette of modest chambray and off-white.

How they wore it:

With a straw fedora and nonchalance.

Shoes:

Sensible brown sandals: simplicity is key for the Margaret Howell woman.

Summer staple:

The Breton-striped dress and cream fedora combo.

Key change:

Feminine ease took a masculine turn with cargo trousers and boxy checked shirts buttoned to the neck.

Hair:

Loosely plaited and looped into a low chignon.

Progression:

Bodice detailing and waisted skirts resulted in a more defined structure, and obvious femininity, compared to previous seasons.
