5 foolproof summer ‘fits


by Sarah Finnan
23rd Jul 2023

Summer dressing boils down to just a few key ingredients; a colourful co-ord, a good pair of denim shorts, a statement dress, a silk midi skirt and linen. Here are five foolproof 'fits to help you look and feel good, no matter the weather.

A co-ord 

If you’re looking for minimal effort, maximum impact summer outfits, then a colourful co-ord is the answer. Follow Lauren Nicole’s lead and pick one up in Barbie pink so you’re right on trend.

Denim shorts and a tee

Denim shorts are a summer wardrobe non-negotiable… which means that finding the right pair should be a top priority. Make yourself a hearty breakfast then block off some so you can hit the shops and actually try things on – it’s rarely fun but it’s the only way to really see what style/fit/length you like and trust me, it’s worth it.

A statement dress

Another put-on-and-go ‘fit, a statement dress requires very little forward planning and does all the talking for you – perfect when you’re running late and claim to have left five minutes ago. Wear with Birkenstock Bostons, your favourite white trainers or your comfiest heels for a fancier occasion.

A silk midi skirt and a bodysuit

Mini skirts had their moment but now, it’s the humble silk midi skirt’s time to shine. A great addition to any wardrobe, they’re chic, versatile and extremely wearable; pair them with sandals in summer, heels on a night out or tights and boots when the weather gets colder. However you wear yours, you’re guaranteed to look like you made an effort. A slinky bodysuit is the perfect companion and immediately makes you look put together.

All white

An all-white linen outfit is summer encapsulated – just add sunnies, a straw hat and a pair of sandals to complete the look.
