Sum­mer hand­book

VOGUE Australia - - Vogue Mood -

caf­tan-cum-mini-dress, with those strappy leather san­dals you bought on hol­i­days. But press pause, be­cause these days will come and go (sorry for the re­minder). Make the mood last by tak­ing note of sum­mer’s sig­ni­fiers. If there is a short­hand for sum­mer in print form, make it ging­ham. It’s all ap­ple pies and pic­nic bas­kets, Brigitte Bar­dot on her wed­ding day, Jackie Kennedy in the White House days. There are no tricks here, so em­brace its whole­some charm and virtue with Rosie As­soulin’s take on manor-to- city with sweep­ing gowns (watch out for these on a red car­pet near you) or Altuzarra’s sig­na­ture slim-fit shirt­dress, criss- crossed with di­ag­o­nally placed ging­ham trim. A basket bag is op­tional, but highly rec­om­mended. ZW
