From an impromptu get-together to a chic cocktail evening, we'll make sure you look and feel fab, no matter what this summer throws at you
Beach picnics and sandcastles. Fish and chips and Cornish pasties. Nothing says summer more than a picnic, so gather your friends and head to the nearest park. Bold print trousers and crop tops, embroidered playsuits, sandals and minimal accessories are the order of the day – comfortable and effortlessly chic pieces that make lounging on the grass and soaking up the sun a piece of cake!
From Bali to Brighton, a day at the sea calls for colour, pretty prints and seriously stylish swimwear. Mix and match your separates for easy beach-to-bar style. Floaty printed shorts and embroidered tops can transform your daytime look to night-time glam, while classic Bardot dresses make getting changed on the beach a breeze. Taking little ones with you? Cute printed kaftans, frilly bikinis and jelly shoes equal instant mini me style.
Flower power, boho vibes and rainbow stripes? fashion has it all. If there was ever a reason to go OTT on the fashion front, this is it. More is more and all rules go out the window. Want to wear sequined strappy crop tops over rainbow print tees with sheer skirts, plastic fantastic rain macs and effervescent bum bags? Go for it!
Balmy evenings and classy cocktails are made for silky fabrics, killer heels and statement jewels. Go for bold with colour and detailing. Frill finishes and diamanté embellishments instantly add stylish sophistication to classic-cut dresses, jumpsuits and accessories. Finish off your look with a glitzy clutch and you’re ready for that glass of bubbly.
