Stylish Sandals

Flats and sandals are ideal footwear choices for the summer. Anything heavy like boots, may cause you to overheat.

Think fashionable yet practical.

If you’re planning on wearing clothes with lots of detailing, it’s best to keep the shoes as simple as possible.

& Other Stories: Heeled Leather Square Toe Sandals – £85

Sandles nude Your summer wardrobe sorted

Elegant? Check. Simple? Check. Stylish? Check.

Add timeless footwear to your smart-casual outfits with these heeled leather sandals from & Other Stories.

Featuring a square toebox and a ’90s inspired heel these nude sandals can be paired with anything in your wardrobe.

Plus the open toe will keep your feet cool in the warmer weather.

& Other Stories: Block Heel Leather Sandals – £65

If you prefer a sandal that offers more support, try these chunky heeled sandals also from & Other Stories, that come with an elasticated back strap.

Like nude, black is another colour that can be worn with practically anything in your wardrobe.

Simple Sneakers

If sandals tend to cut into your feet or give you blisters, you can’t go wrong with some flat sneakers instead.

Be sure you choose a pair that are light and bright, as that way you can keep your feet cool(er).

Plus a simple pair of white sneakers can give any outfit a more casual appearance.

Featuring their iconic 4cm high sole and soft leather, these trainers offer a statement finish to your effortless summer outfits.

Beguiling Bags

The winter months often involve us carrying more than we would like to – umbrellas, gloves, hats and more.

But in the summer you don’t need any of that extra baggage, which means our bags can be smaller and lighter.

Strathberry: Allegro Micromint – £295

Strathberry allegro micromint Your summer wardrobe sorted

One such bag that’s light in colour and the perfect size for your summer essentials is the Allegro Micromint from Strathberry.

Sleek and contemporary, this bag includes one interior pocket and features the iconic Strathberry bar design. The detachable chain allows the bag to be carried both over the shoulder and as a belt bag.

Plus how amazing is the mint green colour?

Strathberry: Box Crescent Soft Pink – £425

boc crescent strathberry soft pink

Pretty in pink. The box crescent also by Strathberry is another perfect sized bag for summer, especially if your day out turns into a night out.

Again, this design features two straps, a wide leather belt and a sleek chain, offering alternative wearing styles to match a plethora of outfits.

Swanky Sunglasses

There are hundred different styles of sunglasses out there. It can be downright overwhelming trying them all on.

But quite frankly we don’t have a choice in the matter, sunglasses are a must-have accessory for the summer, fashion reasons aside, don’t forget that sunglasses are key in protecting your eyes against UV damage.

We could have listed a whole load of sunnies, but instead we went for two that seem to be trending.

Ray-Ban: Round Metal – £131

Ray Ban round metal

The classic round style Ray-Ban, you can’t beat it.

These round metal sunglasses are totally retro and can make any outfit 10x cooler. This look has been worn by legendary musicians and plenty of celebs of the years.

Balenciaga: Slim Rectangle Sunglasses – £295

Balenciaga narrow sunglasses

Remember when ‘the bigger the better’ was the trend for sunglasses? (WAG’s we’re looking at you).

Well now the tables have turned and ‘tiny is trendy’.

The ultimate seal of approval for the tiny sunglasses trend came from – you guessed it – the Kardashian’s, who began wearing tiny sunglasses after Kanye West (Kim’s husband and famous rapper), told his wife that she was no longer allowed to wear big glasses, only tiny glasses.

This trend was then followed by Kim’s sisters, the Hadid’s and Rihanna.

Snazzy Swimsuits

Whether you’re jumping on the plane for a quick get away or off on a trip to Brighton beach, there’s nothing worse than being unprepared for a beach trip.

Finding a simple yet stylish swimsuit is the ultimate must have when summer comes around. We’ve found two that should compliment your wardrobe nicely.

Seafolly: Belted Tank Swimsuit – £91

Seafolly swimsuit

Sporty yet sophisticated, this belted tank swimsuit by swimwear designer Seafolly features a flattering black scoop neck with a button down front.

The black and white elastic belt draws attention to the waist area, adding a touch of sexy glam to the swimsuit.

These will sell fast so we suggest you get in their quick!
