Belles & Whistles

What comes to mind when you think of dressing for Summer? 
Perhaps florals, lace, strapless dresses and pretty girly colours? For me these sum up my version of the perfect Summer wardrobe. I’ve recently been fantasising about the occasions in my diary this Summer – from days at the races at Ascot, weekend trips to the Cotswolds, garden parties and perhaps a day at the polo – and have made it my mission to build the ultimate Summer wardrobe around such dates. It seems that Jack Wills had the exact same idea when they launched their Belles & Whistles collection – a four product range exclusive to the Covent Garden store with timeless pieces for your warmer-weather wardrobe.

Fit and flare dresses are my favourite Summer silhouette, and this bodice dress is the ultimate in a girly, elegant Summer dress. A statement piece which should be worn with minimal jewellery and dainty sandals (heeled or flat) it’s a piece that works for all kinds of summer occasions. My necklace and bracelet are from OAK, and strappy sandals from .

This ruffled bra top is a fun piece to add to your more casual summer wardrobe – worn with trousers, shorts or a skirt this cotton based top feels more signature to the Jack Wills brand. I wanted to create a casual day look, so teamed with my ripped jeans from .

For an elegant summer occasion, creative director Richard Nicoll has introduced this sophisticated Jacquard Pencil Dress. The most sophisticated piece of the range and one which has plenty of attention to detail – the construction is well thought out and it fits the body perfectly.

The collared lace maxi dress is surprisingly easy to wear – it speaks for itself and doesn’t require any additional styling. It’s finish is below the knee and yet the pinched in waist enhance the feminine shape.
The four new pieces from the Jack Wills Belles & Whistles collection are extremely limited (only 20 being made of each piece) and they were launched over the weekend at the Jack Wills store in Covent Garden. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to own part of this fabulous collection!
