As we approach warmer days, there is that constant feeling of wanting to be outdoors. However, when it comes to active-wear outfits, it’s easy to get straight into boring leggings and scuffed trainers. We take a look at the Lacoste L!ve collection for tips on easy summer styling that’s both classic and on-trend.

1.Look for a pair of sneakers which are both comfortable and fashion forward, as well as versatile enough to style with leggings, jeans or even a summer dress.

2. The ultimate in chic dressing is the lightweight striped jersey. Invest in a good quality number to keep you warm on chillier nights or after a long day on the beach.

3. You can never go wrong with a classic leather belt. Pair it with your denim cut-offs to instantly pull together a weekend look, or to cinch the waist of a printed dress for a chic workwear outfit.

4. The white sneaker trend is here to stay, and we can see why – they go with just about everything. To keep your pair in top-form, avoid putting them in the washing machine; you can clean them with a toothbrush dipped in a little white vinegar instead.

5. For an update on your summer #OOTD, pair a V-neck T-shirt over a collared dress and add a pop of colour with your handbag choice.
