Inspired by Dress Like A Mum's effortless sweater x short-shorts look, we've put together three top tips for staying pose-worthy this summer, even if the sunshine goes MIA.

1. Colour Pops reign supreme

Stripe Sweater x Shorts outfit Inso

Whether in a solid or stripe, colour pops are magnetic - a must for summer in the city. Our candy striped sweater with warm coral is a modern take on a classic breton. In a relaxed silhouette, this sweater looks great loosely tucked-in at the front and worn loose at the back. Finely knitted in pure merino wool.

Wear it with:

White denim shorts and silver kicks - we love these silver foiled exclusive Converse from Office. Finish with a pair of sunset-tinted aviators - perpetual sunshine guaranteed through these babies.

2. Make a chic understatement...

Á la Dress Like A Mum sporting the Qui Moi Sweater, translation "Who, Me?". Chic, fun and versatile, this style can be worn as slim fit, or size-up for a more relaxed look.

Wear it with:

Flirty shorts like these broderie beauties in black, which add a touch of elegance and modernity to your daytime look. Show off your summer pedi with a slim pair of sandals in neon. We love these lady-like slides by Sophia Webster.
