Our favourite girl boss uniform just got a chic update. With a silhouette that's perfect for our tropical climate, the short suit will easily be a hit among stylish working ladies. It's sleek, chic and comfy to boot, what's not to love? "We saw huge success with our short suits in our Summer Workwear Edit," says Net-a-Porter Global Buying Director Elizabeth von der Goltz. "Following this proven success, we really went after this style, with 60 short suits coming for the new season."

Yes, these 'mom shorts' are back in the scene and this time you're gonna love them. The huge utility pockets are now edited out and the overall cut is much more sophisticated.

There's no arguing that mini dresses are the most versatile one-pieces. It's also time-saving; pick one, put it on, accessorise and you're ready to go. No wonder it's been a wardrobe staple since the 1960s. Expect wide selections to come soon on Net-a-Porter, including the three super covetable little black dresses spotted at the opening of Versace's Spring/Summer 2020 show.

The men's shirt

With androgynous fashion becoming popular, many ladies are crossing over to the men's section to score some good style picks for less. The leading ladies' choice? Men's shirt. It turns out that whether it's the short or long-sleeved kind, these pieces are great for creating casual yet polished ensembles.
