More winter style solutions, this time with our definitive pick of winter scarves. A scarf is a great chance to add a splash of colour, pattern or texture to your outfit so be brave and pick something bold!
From left: University scarves are a great find on eBay, Paul Smith does a luxe silk-lined version for £110. Chunky scarves with the right amount of texture are hard to come by on the high street but Topman have a good selection, this teal offering is £12.

Monsoon have got the best manbags at the moment, combining neutral canvas with leather for an aged feel which are perfect for taking on holiday. The leather trims give an air of professorly insouciance, these are made for storing your heavy philosophical tomes. More importantly they look like an old find you might have been carrying around for years which will add chic to any casual outfit. See after the jump for product links.
These slouchy trousers from Monsoon (£55) are perfect for the summer, the linen content means they will look their best slightly rumpled and billowing but the rayon content will keep a modicum of crisp. Team the dark slate colour with pale blues, dove greys and white for a cool look; the trousers will be equally at home with a casual t-shirt and flip flops or smartened up with a tailored short-sleeved shirt and pumps for work.
I have been looking for a stripy navy top for ages, the kind that the French call a marinière. Monsoon have got a navy stripy v-neck which will look great with white jeans and espadrilles for Gallic summer look. You could also team the jumper with some brown cords, or some khaki shorts for a more low-key outfit. It definitely gets my vote for chic holiday cover-up.
I mentioned yesterday that knee high shorts aren’t easy to carry off, but it’s a bit of a dilemma because purely from a fashion (rather than comfort) perspective 3/4 length trousers are looking a bit dated. I’ve picked out an outfit based around a pair of navy tailored shorts from Topman trying to keep it looking quite casual; keeping all the other items in an outfit low key and in a neutral colour palette is a good way of trying out new trends.
