Shop The Shoot:

Whatever it is you thought you knew, think again. This season, it's all about mastering the art of unpredictability—we're talking bold blocky colours, sweeping shapes and knife-sharp tailoring.

Pastel was everywhere in 2016, but this year it's all about super pale or bold and bright shades. Trade in your baby blues for something with a more metallic glint: it's edgier, more sophisticated, and a subtle way to incorporate colour into your wardrobe.
A pale fur-trimmed trench coat from Prada is perfect with a matching set of steel-blue printed shorts and blouse from Miu Miu. The patterns are complemented by the block-colour coat, and the outfit's colour continuity pulls the entire look together.
Accessories can make or break an outfit, and these Prada sandals are a simple way to spruce up your wardrobe. Fur-lined kitten heels and block wedges are both summer essentials. A pair of Alexander McQueen sunglasses is another way to make a statement with bold shapes.
For a sharp silhouette, consider asymmetrical styles and pointed toes. Contrast free-flowing fabrics with angular cuts, and look to the '80s for super-shoulder inspiration: the bigger, the better.
These boots were made for walking—and talking, in this case, because nothing makes a louder fashion statement than Balenciaga's over-the-knee purple spandex boots. For something with more subtle star-power, the glitz of these golden Louis Vuitton ankle boots is sure to turn heads.
And for the ultimate twist on staid officewear, take a look at this Balenciaga asymmetrical skirt: it's equal measures quirky and cute, but with a tailored aesthetic to bring it back to earth.
Dior's ready-to-wear spring/summer 2017 collection puts things in black and white with a quilted crop top featuring the signature Dior bee emblem. Paired with a pair of metal aviator sunglasses, Dior's lacy tulle top avoids being too twee with sharp, modern horizontal lines.
From tailored workwear to utility-inspired casual clothes, this month we're taking a turn towards the practical, but that doesn't mean sacrificing style.
The double denim look is given a fresh overhaul with loose jeans from Isabelle Marant and a gold-detailed jacket and top from Mary Kantrantzou. But if baggy pants aren't your thing, a fitted jacket and trousers from Givenchy create a stunning, sleek silhouette.
