As summer is coming up I decided to share with you my favourite pieces for this season, it was hard to narrow down but I have 5 summery outfits that cover all types of weather we experience in the UK as I know for a fact not every day in the summer is crazy hot! I have shown outfits suitable for holidays away as well as ones for hot days in England. I love summer fashion especially because it’s so uplifting and enjoyable, the styles shops bring out are always so pretty! It’s also much easier in away as there’s not as many layers of clothing, most of the time its just shorts and a top however we all know its not as easy as that with our inconstant British weather so that is why I am showing you a more realistic approach to outfit ideas for this summer…
So the first outfit is for those chilled hot summer days, maybe your going out or even on holiday possibly, it is a staple playsuit. Everyone needs something super easy to throw on (step into more like!) and cool, this is also great for going on days out. My beloved playsuit from H&M is a casual t-shirt style, I like to the pair this with my black Adidas hat and a boho tasselled black bag also from H&M. For shoes I’m keeping with the Adidas theme and going for some trendy Stan Smiths- which I mention in my Spring Edit post so go and check it out.
Next outfit I’ve chosen is particularly for the rainy or colder days in the summer but it can still be quite humid, so something cool and warm at the same time is key! I’m wearing some vintage mom jeans which I love, I brought them from a vintage site on depop- my username is @tillyblowers. Compared to Topshop mom jeans I prefer mine as they seem to fit much nicer around the waist, even though they are slightly less tight fitting on the legs I don’t mind that as they are such good quality! I pared them with a white fine knitted top, I know what you’re thinking knitted clothes in the summer? It’s actually really cool I don’t get too hot in it! For my feet I love to wear my white Birkenstocks as they still keep me cool and are so comfy to wear.
Another one of my favourite outfits is this super cute shorts and strappy top number. I love this for really hot days when I’m out and about, it shows a lot of skin and may be too much for some people but sometimes you need to just feel body confident despite what you are wearing, especially if it’s hot then you should wear what you want! The top I’m wearing is such a nice summery colour and I love the tassels! The super high waisted mom shorts are from Topshop, they go so well with the top as I noticed the thread in the shorts match with the mustard! I like to style it with a black shoulder bag from Primark and again my Birkenstocks.
This outfit is great for a holiday, it’s quite casual but still looks put together. The top comes all the way from Thailand but I am sure there are some high street alternatives out there! My on trend baggy floral trousers are from Hollister, I love them so much they are really comfy and just so easy to wear! I like to style this with a denim jacket as I think it goes nicely, plus it’s great for the more cooler evenings whilst on holiday! For shoes I’m wearing my trusty Havaiana flip flops because they are the most comfiest pair I’ve ever had I highly recommend them!
And last but not least this is my favourite going out dress, it’s beautiful. I think everyone needs a dress that they can wear to give a more formal look or just to keep cool in when the weather is hot. Personally I love to wear this in the evenings whilst on holiday, maybe going out for dinner as I would dress this up and feel all fancy. My favourite part of the dress is the ‘china plate’ oriental pattern and the cold shoulder detail. The shoes for this are silver T bar/gladiator sandals which adds to the formal look.
Thank you all for reading, we are growing a little more each day and I can’t thank you enough! Hope you enjoyed this post and got some inspiration for your own summer style!
