The Essential Summer Trends to Style Up your Wardrobe
Bohemian-tinted glamour, heavy on the fringe and a Marrakech-infused flavour – these are some of our favourite trends for this summer.
Whether you’re packing up the wheelie to jet away to beachy climes, trotting around town to make the most of the Great British Summer, or planning a staycation with your buds back home, one thing’s for sure – you need some serious style to keep you cool when the sun comes out.
So what should be on your shopping list? Check out our essentials list below!
1. White hot chic
All white everything is pretty much the definition of a classic summer wardrobe in our books. Cute and comfy playsuits, sexily sheer lace maxi dresses or a classic oversized white shirt dress create the perfect palette to show off sunkissed limbs and bare legs.
Release your inner bohemian by choosing something with delicate details that hint at a playful summer vibe, and finish off the look with a gorgeous statement necklace that adds a juicy slab of colour to shine bright in the summer sun!
2. Culotte it up for work
Ugh – stuck in an office while the ice cream van’s jingling outside? We know the feeling.
While we can’t deliver a 99 Flake to your desk – we can tell you how to keep your cool during the 9 to 5, with the fabulously retro vibe of swishy culottes.
Pair them with chunky sandals and a crop top, and add a jangle of understated bangles to your wrists for a bit of fun. After all, all work and no play is totally no good for you, right?
3. Do it all in one
Onesies, playsuits, jumpsuits – whatever you want to call them. We love the easy going vibe of a good all in one piece.
Slip in on over your bikini and you’re all set for the pool to drinks transition. Throw on your favourite beaten denim jacket and a pair of flat sandals, and it’s the perfect outfit for a summer brunch.
We love this gorgeously vibrant printed jumpsuit from Urban Outfitters – with a swirly blue star print that reminds us of those prettily tiled floors in Marrakech riads, this is already getting us nostalgic for summer hols…
4. Wet-look Lids
The last thing you want is to sweat off a face full of make up, so we’re totally down for keeping our summer beauty routine as minimalistic as possible.
That doesn’t mean zero make up though. One great beauty essential we’ve swiped from RiRi is a gorgeously gleaming eyelid – create the look by layering a hint of clear or tinted balm over iridescent eyeshadow – for beautifully mermaid-y peepers!
