So with summer officially starting this week and the weather in Scotland being pretty unsure of what it wants to do, I thought I’d share some of my favourite summer trends right now, despite my main attire probably being my work clothes this summer. I love seeing girls totally rocking something different and cute so I thought (despite being in no way a fashionista) I’d give some statement pieces to add to your wardrobe this summer.
If like me you are a jeans and a top sort of girl then dungarees can mix up your look without pushing you too far away from what your used to, they are a total throwback which is cute and with a cute and colourful top underneath them you can rock that casual cute look. This summer they seem to be a big trend with your high street favourites such as Topshop, River Island and Primark selling them, however I have fallen in love with a pair from Marks and Spencer, coming in at £49.50 they are your dark denim skinny ankle grazer dungarees which is a style I am loving right now.
Colourful Biker Jackets
As someone who doesn’t like to change my look very often I have some staple clothing items that I reuse each year, mostly being jackets, however this summer I am planning on investing in a new jacket because of how cute the colourful biker jackets I’m seeing are. Some stores are selling faux leather and some faux suede in this style, it depends on your preference but I am loving the Missguided range of faux suede biker jackets that come in an array of colours all costing just £40 (plus they do student discount!). From your neutral tan, grey and light pink to your eye catching red and green, it depends your style but I think these are a must-have this summer.
I have always found this company to have such an amazing idea behind them and it means I don’t mind spending that little bit more on my shoes, with their one for one promise, it means that for every pair of shoes you buy, someone in need of shoes across the world gets a pair as well. They are also extremely comfortable and so easy to just slip on and off at your leisure; they make for great holiday shoes too because of that reason. Starting at £34.99 you can get these in Schuh or Office or direct from the Toms website and they are a great summer investment- just so comfy!
Quay Australia Sunglasses
Quay Australia are killing it in the sunglasses game, being not only gorgeous but extremely affordable and having some amazing collaborations this year with Youtubers Chrisspy and Desi Perkins they have built up their brand into a household name. ASOS, Urban Outfitters and Topshop are all shops you can get your hands on them in the UK, with a huge range to suit everyone it is no wonder people are desperate to get their hands on them. Starting at £25 and going up to £40 they are a high quality brand with a good price tag.
I have never liked wearing skirts or dresses so a cute way to dress up your shorts is print shorts, a cute blouse and wedges this summer. It totally mixes up your look and allows you to go from day time to night time just by changing your shoes from flats to wedges-saving room in your suitcase. With most shops having a selection my personal favourites come from boohoo at only £12 which is a steal! I also love the black and white mandala prints for this summer but going for something more floral can brighten up your look if your used to darker colours (I almost live in black and grey).
As a handbag lover I have been thoroughly enjoying the bright coloured handbags that I have seen, summer always brings out the cute colours for handbags and makes choice almost impossible. But tote bags always come in handy during summer, theres more room for your summer essentials, sunglasses, sun cream and all the other junk handbags seem to gather. I am currently in love with one from Accessorize at £39 because the gorgeous blue colour seem to go with everything and is a colour favourite of mine this season.
Hopefully everyone has an amazing summer, what are your summer must-haves this season? What is your favourite summer style?
