Given the snowy conditions out there you might not be thinking about your spring wardrobe just yet, but fashion waits for no man and what better distraction from the ensuing chaos than some internet shopping? ASOS are fully stocked for summer, with some great options in chambray and seersucker. This dark chambray, unstructured blazer (similar to the Acne/Lanvin collaboration) is a great staple. Seersucker has been building popularity over the last few summers and a pair of slim-fitting pants with that charming fine stripe is a great use of the fabric. The denim barrel bag is a snip at less than £10. Finally this short-sleeved chambray shirt with polo-type collar and the desert boots in lovely soft tones are both steals.
ASOS are promoting this look through a themed video called Bistroteque – a name many Londoners would associate with Hackney’s trendy bistro/drag cabaret venue rather than ‘Riviera chic’ but it certainly sets the tone.
