So what are you waiting for? Enter our capsule where sunny style is plentiful and begin building your summer wardrobe…

Start at the top

From basic vest tops and short-sleeved T-shirts made for hot days to embellished tunics and printed designs ideal for dressier occasions, you’ll find a range of tops in our Summer Capsule to ensure you feel fabulous in the sunshine. Slogan tees like this Love Heart T-shirt from Ruth Langsford and Summer of Love top from Dannii Minogue are a particularly versatile choice, as they look great styled with casual or smart bottoms as well as being easy to wear under a jacket or knit if temperatures fall.

Another fab option is a top with a floral print like this Sleeveless Shirt by Michele Hope as it will instantly make your outfit beautiful and bright. If you’re not sure about going sleeveless, try pairing it with a lightweight cardigan like the one in this two-piece set, also by Michele Hope.

Make the base ace

Gone are the cold months when you’ve got to keep your pins wrapped up warm. Summer means the options are endless when it comes to dressing the bottom half of your body so go wild for skirts like this leopard print number from Ruth Langsford, embrace nautical style with shorts like these Chino shorts in Bright White from Joules, and keep it easy-breezy and relaxed with floaty wide-leg trousers such as these chic H Halston culottes.

Select a staple

Whether it’s a jumpsuit you feel you can live in all season or a dress you can turn to in a hurry, make sure you’ve got a summer staple ready in your wardrobe for those ‘what to wear’ occasions. The key is not only choosing something that’ll keep you comfortable and cool but also picking something that makes you feel, well… down right fabulous!! We’ve got everything from casual shirt dresses to beautiful fit and flares and gorgeous printed jumpsuits, making it easy to find something you love.

Take this mid-length dress from Nina Leonard from example. It’s made from a comfy, stretchy jersey fabric and features flattering details such as a V-neckline, elbow-length sleeves and faux wrap front. Plus, it comes in three wonderfully bright colours great for summer as well as classic, timeless Black. Easy to dress up or down too, it’s a sizzling summer staple.

Add sunny touches

Getting playful with your accessories is not only fun but it’s also a good way of introducing bright colours to your look, especially if you’re not sure about going for all-out, top-to-toe sunshine. Often all you need to add a slice of summer to your outfit is a bag in a popping shade, like this cross-body bag from Ashwood that comes in fabulous Papaya or Pink, and/or a pair of sensational sandals like Dune’s Longley sandal (we’re BIG fans of the glamorous Beaded Rose Gold Nude option!).

We’ve got a wide range of shoes and accessories to cover all tastes in our capsule edit so whether you’re after a flash of colour, a hint of metallic glam or something more neutral, you can find the perfect pieces to complete your summer outfits.
