Combining formal with casual is a trend to give a try. A good example of this look is teaming a tailored, smart jacket with more informal trousers. This season a twist on this trend is the way to go.

Generally people wear casual on the bottom and smart on the top, but now it’s all about casual on top and smart on the bottom.

An example of this is the pencil skirt and sweatshirt trend we’ve been seeing. The structured skirt with such a casual jumper is not something you would necessarily think of teaming together, but the combination is modern and stylish.

For summer, the look can be executed with a Dior-esque full skirt and cotton T-shirt.

Think statement bottom half and subtle top to pull the combination off.
