Guy meets Girl

I have recently noticed a look that I am in love with and will fit right in this spring/summer. It's a guys' outfit been modified for girls. The traditional chinos and shirt. It came to my attention lookking at the Jack Wills spring season.
  (this guy is wearing Fred Perry...I think)

It is the perfect look for when you want to feel summery and casual but are reminded by the weather that it's still Britain, and a white summer dress is out of the question.
 It is versatile and can be worn with a blazer or Arran knit. I like to pair the look with some boat-shoe moccasins and retro sunglasses too.
These pictures are from Jack Wills. They offer a range of colours and fits for the shirts and chinos. My personal composition is a blue and white pinstipe, classic fit shirt with olive chinos. JW also do this style glasses but you can get the above from ASOS.com for less. Moccasins and boat shoes in different styles can be found in many places. The blazers and knits are also available from JW (by chance) but looking around a variety of places can piece together this look.

Hope you like this and manage to find what your looking for. If anyone would like me to source other alternatives just ask,( I do realize this has unintentionally used alot of Jack Wills.)  :) xxx
