First up is this gorgeous floral Ecru Culotte Jumpsuit. If you’re looking for a fun alternative to lace dresses this wedding season, why not opt for a flirty, floral jumpsuit instead? This fashion-forward culotte style is perfect for hitting the dance floor! Just throw in some heeled sandals and a clutch bag and you’re good to go.
On the search for the perfect blazer jacket to elevate your outfits? Every women should own a tailored white jacket. They’re great for dressing up jeans on a night out, and will also save you from shivering when the British summer gets somewhat unpredictable. This tuxedo style is a great investment if you have any September weddings to attend, as it will make for a very chic cover-up in the evening.
If you’re jetting away for the school holidays, it’s important to simplify your packing process by investing in dresses that can be worn both day and night. This Ochre Pleated Maxi Dress features a pleated design that’ll work perfectly for a day soaking up the culture in a new city – just team it with a denim jacket, cross-body bag and flat sandals. Then, come evening, ditch the jacket and slip into your favourite heels.
All of the coolest girls on Instagram are carrying straw basket bags, this summer. And this Neutral Straw Shopper Bag is a great way to get in on the look! It’s the perfect low-key accessory for picnics, trips to the beach and afternoons spent mooching around your local farmers market.
Moving onto denim, embroidery is a huge trend this season and the easiest way to tap into the look is by updating your jeans collection. These Embroidered Flower Skinny Jeans make enough of a statement on their own, so they look fantastic paired with a simple white T-shirt and a khaki jacket. But they’re also a great option for nights out. Especially when paired with the aforementioned tuxedo jacket…!
Finally, at number 7 are these Red Ankle Strap Sandals. Everyone knows a classic sandal goes with everything – dresses, jeans, skirts, jumpsuits… you name it! The bold red hue is perfect for making a statement but you can also opt for the pale pink version if you’re looking for a versatile shoe that will get you through a long list of formal summer events.
