Chloë Sevigny looks almost ethereal in this light peach Prada gown. The white collar, the full sleeve and floral embellishment is so elegant. Chloë is a risk-taker when it comes to her style, and she always owns it

City Limits

Itching for a cheeky getaway? Then a city escape is just the ticket. But what to pack? Travelling light is key, so that you can squeeze every valuable minute out of your break. Wear your sassiest pair of platform heels as part of your travel outfit. These will dress up your jeans or add a retro Seventies vibe to a cute summer dress. Pack a knit in a neutral shade that you can wear with a variety of different outfits. A shirt is a must — it can be worn under your knit or alone, if the temperature allows. Trainers are an absolute essential — a pair of classic Nikes or Converse for ultimate comfort and coolness. And save space for a hat — it will complete your city girl get-up like nothing else. Obviously, it helps to pack clothes that you can mix and match, so when it comes to colour, think tone-on-tone as an easy way to edit your carry-on luggage.

Top tip

This season there’s no escaping embroidery, which appears on everything from elegant evening gowns to denims and varsity jackets. Some of the interpretations are full-on, so my top tip for a light summery look is to focus on splendid details across cuffs, collars or shoulders.
