It’s time to have some fun! Try something a little different from the everyday chino’s and denim jeans that have been your winter staples and consider a cool tailored pant, a classic white tee and a pair of braces – #bestdressed
Fresh white sneakers will continue to be your friend, but for those wanting to sharpen their look, consider a boat shoe, brogue or loafer.
If you are opting for shorts, block colours are best as you can play with an array of colour and experiment with bold prints on top.
