Staying Stylish in the Sun

With the summer months knocking at the door, it’s time to clear out the winter wardrobe and get on trend with the latest hot looks. So whether you’re looking for casual daywear or something for an evening out, our 100+ stores are on hand to ensure you find all your summer essentials.

Working Hard or Hardly Working

Workwear has become significantly more stylish, with boilersuits proving hot property this summer. River Island’s Light Blue Utility Jumpsuit (£65) provides the perfect purchase to pull off this look. Whether you’re wearing it loose for casual day wear, or slipping into a pair of heels to take on the night, the boilersuit is a must have this summer.

Bold is Back

Bright neon colours are making a comeback. They may be straight from the 80’s, but they’re right on trend this season. Bright sunshine and bright colours are a perfect match, and New look’s Bright Pink Neon Bandeau Belted Midi Dress (£19.99) is perfect partnered with some simple jewellery and footwear.

Stepping Off the Plane

Holiday booked and bags nearly packed but still missing something to stroll down the beach in? This summer’s sandal is all about the straps, the more the merrier. Schuh has you covered, with something for everyone in their extensive range of sandals. We’re fans particularly of the Brown Aloha Sandals (£25), not only do they tick the box for this season’s strappy look, but also boast a stylish leopard print, which is all the rage this year.

Floral… Not Hawaiian!

Floral shirts are definitely in trend this year, but this doesn’t mean Hawaiian is back! Vibrant floral patterns with a more subtle background are a must-have for the summer look. Top Man’s Surfer Orchid Revere Shirt (£25) offers a busy design that will grab attention for the right reasons. Wear it closed to keep it smart or open with a plain t-shirt for any casual summer event.

Do Denim Right

Denim shorts can be dangerous, too long or too baggy and you risk looking like a 90’s skater. That’s not to say the style is a right-off. Finding a fitted pair of denim shorts is key to pulling off the look. H&M’s Slim Fit Denim shorts (£19.99) are great for getting it right. The distressed colour and slight rips break up the design and are ideal piece of day-to-day wear this summer.
