Top up your summer wardrobe with some great value buys

TAGS:

We’re halfway through summer… but, hey, there’s still the hottest month to go. So whether you heading off on your hols or staying put in town, why not treat yourself to a few last-minute seasonal buys.

Updating your accessories gives every outfit a new lease of life, and this is the time of year when a roomy bag is always useful – whether you’re setting off on days out with the kids or heading out on a shopping expedition. If you’ve got a beach trip lined up, a gorgeous light kimono is an absolute must-have. Or you could top up your sunnies collection with some mirrored aviators.

Nothing’s simpler than slipping into a dress and there are some great bargains out there for under £30. This denim dress really ticks the boxes, as it looks good on its own with bare shoulders or would work well with a close-fitting, Bardot-style off-the-shoulder top underneath. Demure enough for the office, yet relaxed, you could add a Breton top for laidback French chic.

Skater dresses are just so cute, and we love this versatile turquoise lace one. Team it with metallic flats and a floppy hat for a day out sightseeing, or dress it up with heels and a clutch for evenings.

When the sun’s really beating down, a little strappy number is the perfect go-to style. We love this classic V-neck, striped mini dress with a tie waist. Simple, chic and super-cool!
