Schoolgirl Style for Spring/Summer

As the weather gets warmer, it becomes increasingly apparent that layering a long-sleeved white shirt underneath a black shift dress isn't going to fare well. What's that I hear (probably none of you) cry? How do you incorporate schoolgirl style for spring/summer? Here's how...

1) Relax the silhouette

Dress - Topshop

This dress still has the smart element that you want to maintain, but it's much less structured. The colour is perfect for the upcoming season and the pockets ensure space for your pens and pencils.

2) Never underestimate the sock

Socks - ASOS

You're probably already partial to pairing your socks with your cropped trousers, but there's no reason to leave them behind. There's a plethora to choose from: gingham, lace, or fringed. Team them with your brogues or penny loafers and you'll be top of the class.

3) The collar is your best friend 

Collar - Ebay

As previously mentioned, layering shirts underneath other garments won't be an option when the temperatures are at their highest. Instead, opt for a detachable collar. This means that you can keep your cool, but still look put-together. An A+ for accessories.
