LIFE’S A BEACH
There’s nothing better than spending the long summer days hopping from beach to bar, and this bold printed playsuit fits all our sartorial needs. Roll this beauty up in your suitcase and throw on over your bikini quicker than you can say piña colada! The cut-out detail adds a cool touch, flashing some skin while still offering coverage. Who says florals can’t be groundbreaking, eh?! Just add a pair of strappy sandals and a denim jacket, and you’re good to go.
ALL DRESSED UP
The wrap dress is fastbecoming summer’s favourite frock, and we can’t get enough of it. This red floral number is next on our list. The giant bow detail gives it extra flair while the off-the-shoulder neckline adds another flattering touch. Pair with anything from trainers to sassy sandals.
EARN YOUR STRIPES
Give the classic jean a sporty makeover with a fun side stripe. Perfect for tapping into the athleisure trend without donning a full-on tracksuit. The mom fit gives it a vintage twist, too. Team with a slogan tee or red sweater.
The bum bag trend is still going strong, and this metallic beauty might be the fanciest one yet. Wear it as a belt or over your shoulder à la Kendall Jenner. This shiny number will look just as stylish with an LBD as it would with some denim cut-offs.
CHERRY ON TOP
It’s our new go-to summer top. The peplum style is über-flattering, cinching you in at the middle and flaring out to create an hourglass shape, while the vertical stripes help elongate, too. Plus the hot-red hue brightens any dull day.
Want to make an entrance at that wedding or BBQ? This midi dress does the trick. Floaty sleeves, a soft leaf print and a flattering tie waist, it’ll work for any summer soirée. Best paired with silver accessories for extra wow factor.
If you didn’t know already, buttons are the details du jour, so give the classic cami top a sophis update with some tortoiseshell fastenings. The mustard-yellow shade works well with denim, or keep things neutral and pair with cream highwaisted trousers for a smart, Scandi-inspired look.
Solving all our sweaty-hair-in-our-face dilemmas is this colour-popping hair band. A savvy shortcut if you’re struggling to tie a bandana. Team with a messy top knot or beach waves, and unwashed festival hair will go completely unnoticed, promise!
Introducing the prettiest shoe trend of them all, the bow. The satin fabric adds a touch of luxe to your look, too. Dress up a simple jeansand-tee combo with these sleek shoes to swiftly elevate your look to next-level chic.
