Ever fancied yourself as a traffic warden, a staff nurse or a Girl Guide? This summer, you don't need to sign up for life. To look the part, you can just pick out a stiff, white shirt dress, a blue nylon policewoman's shirt (with epaulettes, if possible), flat-fronted policeman's trousers from Miu Miu or Oasis, and a pair of exercise sandals by Dr Scholl.
