Stylist and fashion editor Deborah Brett chooses her favourite pieces from IRIS for a three-part holiday special. Get the perfect looks and hassle free packing tips in our guide to looking chic this Summer.
If I’m going on a city break, I always stick to a tight colour palette. It means you have to put more thought into the packing, but when you get there, you can go on auto-pilot because you know that everything works together. It maybe a palette of black and white, or blues, whites and denim. Take a clutch or bag that goes with everything. Keep it concise.
OUT AND ABOUT
I love these relaxed IRIS Drawstring pants they’re like a grown up tracksuit but perfect for travelling in. Very comfortable, but also really elegant too. And this BA&SHslouchy white tuxedo is amazing – it instantly makes the look more modern. Remember to roll up the sleeves. The Paris tee is super cute – I love a logo! With the Donchoo clutch you’re good to go.
This is a perfect go-to dress for a city break. Perfect for day with flats and a cross-body bag, and then dress it up for evening withespadrilles and a pair of gold hoop earrings. I like to stack my rings, and layer up my bracelets and necklaces. Both the dress and the bag are good sale buys as they are great trans-seasonal pieces they don’t just work in Summer, but all year round. The dress would work equally well going in to Autumn with tights, even a polo neck underneath and knee high boots for a 70s vibe. I love the Jerome Dreyfuss tote big enough to chuck everything in, light-weight and it has a shoulder strap and handle, which very useful. It would be a great bag for work too.
