Summer’s finally here, which means it’s time to pack away all those heavy winter jackets and spruce up your wardrobe with some on-trend essentials. Below, we’ve listed some of our favourite and most versatile items for this summer.

Keep Things Floral with a Print Dress

You’ve probably noticed it already, but floral print is big this summer. Why not feel the breeze with a light floral print party dress? Alternatively, go for something light and sophisticated in jazzy stripes. Both styles are back in a huge way this season and, with the perfect pattern, you can find something that will brighten up your wardrobe. If you want to try out something a little different than your usual party dress, check out some of these designs for inspiration.

Say it Loud with a Slogan T-Shirt

Make a statement this summer with a slogan tee. All over social media, people are making their opinions known, so why not go retro and do it with a simple T-shirt. It doesn’t have to be complicated, it’s a slogan after all. Black on white is the way to go. Whatever your cause, make your feelings known and wear a slogan t-shirt with pride, and perhaps some nice faded blue jeans.

Trainers, Trainers, Trainers

I can’t stress this one enough. A good pair of white old-school trainers are just about the most versatile item you can have in your wardrobe this summer. From that smart casual blazer to a slog t-shirt and distressed jeans, they’ll go with pretty much everything. Start out with a nice pair of plain Reeboks and work your way up to something with a little bit more colour, but make sure it keep it chunky.

Look the Part in Aviator Shades

A decent pair of shades is well worth the investment, especially if you can wear them at multiple occasions. When (or if!) the sun comes out this season, you’ll want to look the part. As ever, your sunglasses are going to be a key piece of your wardrobe, so why not invest a little bit extra? Aviators are back in at the moment, particularly from Michael Kors – have a look here and see if you can find something to your taste.

Dress for Success in a Strong-Shoulder Blazer

In case you hadn’t heard, the 90s are cool again, and that means big shoulders on blazers are back in style. If you’ve got job or internships interviews lined up or just looking for something that adds an extra touch of class, you can’t go wrong with a chic blazer in your closet. Again, this is such a versatile item that you’ll be kicking yourself if you don’t get out there and get one soon. A blazer with a tailored fit lends just the right amount of elegance to almost any outfit, so make sure to find one that fits your figure perfectly.
