One of my favourite things about summer is my summer wardrobe – and adding to it. My summer staples this year are denim shorts, boyfriend tee, statement necklace and Birkenstocks but for really hot days (hello muggy weather we’ve been having recently!) or for days when I want to look a bit smarter, the summer dress is everyone’s best friend. You can wear one with some flip flops for a picnic or day at the seaside or wear some bejewelled sandals and a statement necklace and it’ll be office-ready.
George at Asda have asked me to pick out my favourite dresses from their Summer Shop… this is how I’d wear them…
There’s something about any print that vaguely has a hint of Missoni about it, that appeals to me every time. This maxi dress just needs a slick of bright lippy, sandals and a denim jacket to make any picnic or BBQ a style hit. Add a fedora hat if it’s really sunny.
Printed maxi dress, £12
Buckled sandals, £10
Mid-wash cropped denim jacket, £18
Rimmel Kate Matte lipstick in 110, £5.48
This outfits screams ‘summer date’ to me – whether you’ve managed to blag a babysitter or you’ve got a night out with the girls planned (cocktails and cinema is always a winner with me) the combination of cotton midi dress, leather jacket and embellished flats will see you right.
Faux leather jacket, £30
Gemstone sandals, £12
Wasp necklace, £4 (has an air of Alex Monroe to it, don’t you think?)
I love a stripe – especially when paired with a statement necklace. But for this look, I’ve gone for a print clash (something I learned from my friend Erica) by choosing a floral kimono in similar colours to wear over the dress. Add a pop of colour with some bright nail polish and trainers (or if you’re going for a more dressy look, block heeled sandals would look ace.)
Stripe sundress, £10
Floral print kimono, £16
Max Factor mini nail polish in coral, £1
Canvas slip-ons, £6
