11 pieces to put in your bank holiday shopping basket now

11 pieces to put in your bank holiday shopping basket now

Fancy some retail therapy? We’ve found 11 must-have pieces to add to your online basket this weekend…


Can I get a hallelujah and an amen for the fact we have another three-day weekend on our hands? It’s time to relax, put the feet up and get some well-deserved retail therapy (AKA, online shopping).

We now find ourselves in a new month and a new season. While our Irish weather might beg to differ, we are revelling in the fact that summer is once more in our grasp. Summer dressing means colour, prints, lightweight fabrics and summer dresses – all accessorized with a glass of rosé.

If you find yourself browsing the ‘new-in’ of any online retailer, you will find all of the above (though maybe not the rosé…) and more. There is enough to keep you dreaming of sunnier climes, and if you listen hard enough you might just hear the faint whisper of a hot Irish summer.

However, if the warmer weather takes another while to hit our green shores, these 11 pieces pay their due until then. The Asos midi-dress can be worn with boots, and the daisy print organza blouse can be layered underneath a leather jacket and gives it some sartorial edge.

The floral & Other Stories maxi dress is summer wedding perfection, but it looks equally as promising when worn with a black longline blazer and white trainers for a relaxed day. What’s more, the Editor jeans from Topshop will work whatever the day and whatever the weather.

Now, all you have to do is enjoy your long weekend and your extra day of shopping.

Floral organza blouse, €39.95 at Zara

Ruffled floral maxi dress, €119 at & Other Stories

Heel leather sandals, €35.99 at Mango

Long polka dot dress, €49.95 at Zara

Asos design long sleeve sheer high neck top, €41.48 at Asos

Petula animal print wrap midi skirt, €115 at Kitri

Glamorous curve midi dress with front splits, €52.54 at Asos

Bleach editor jeans, €68 at Topshop

 

Blouse with broderie anglaise, €27.99 at H&M

Castañer Carina 80 canvas wedge espadrilles, €90 at Net-A-Porter

Verona curve long sleeved jumpsuit, €69.13 at Asos
