It's taken its time but summer has officially arrived, which means festivals, holidays and beer gardens replace Netflix, cozy nights in and takeaways. Although the last month has been full of Autumn/Winter 2016 collection previews, I've only just started buying my Spring/Summer wardrobe! My first point of call for summer wear was Topman, I put together the above look for my recent trip to Barcelona and decided it was actually also perfect to wear for a local midday Sunday beer in Brixton.

I love outfits that are versatile and work for a multitude of different circumstances, from Topman Oxford Street to Barcelona to Brixton! Two key aspects to this outfit are the shorts and bomber jacket. Chino shorts are comfortable and breathable and therefore perfect to be worn for long sunny walks or chilling out on Clapham Common, Victoria Park or whatever your local green space is. I've chosen a pair of black shorts, although Topman also do these shorts in a variety of other colours. Dark shorts work well if styling with lighter shades on the top half of your body and are a hardier colour for wearing from day-to-night. 

Khaki bomber jackets were an AW15 hit, now in the SS16 season, grey bomber jackets have taken over and looking at the AW16 previews - grey features again (as well as earth rust tones). So if you invest now, you'll have a whole year of wear out of it and some!
