Summer is finally on its way… which means it really is the hottest time of the year for women’s fashion!
Not only does this mean temperatures are (hopefully!) set to soar, but also that our summer staples can return, along with the addition of some new pieces of course! Whether you’re planning for a holiday or the season in general, we have put together a go-to list to ensure you stay and look cool all summer long.
1) Denim Jacket
As lovers of denim, it should come as no surprise that the denim jacket tops our summer staple list. Its lightweight texture and timeless shape make it the ideal item to throw on top of any outfit. Whether it’s a maxi dress, jumpsuit or skirt, a denim jacket brings a casual and breezy feel to any look. Not to mention it’s practical for cool mornings and evenings where other outerwear would feel too heavy.
Are you looking for a denim jacket that is stretchy, comfortable and flattering? You’re in luck! B Young clothing have created the perfect denim jacket that ticks all those boxes and more. Even better it comes in white, mid blue or dark blue. This means the perfect jacket for any occasion, taste and look is here for you.
2) Summer Shoes
It’s time to put those boots away and give your feet some well needed ventilation! Open sandals are a great way to keep your feet cool in the heat, and we love their added benefit of making your legs appear long and slender. Comfort is always king to us here at Berties which is why we love these fashionable sandals by Alpe which are so easy to wear. Available in chunky rose, or gold gladiator, you can always rely on Alpe shoes for those long summer days.
When nighttime hits, these silver heeled Unisa shoes are perfect for dressing up any outfit. Their beautiful silver colour is very on trend, not to mention looks fantastic when set against a tanned foot.
Whether it’s a busy day or a lazy weekend, white pumps are our go-to! Their crisp white colour freshens up any look and can be worn to dress down any outfit - perfect for summer. These white sneakers By Malene Birger are our go-to and will definitely be staples in our summer wardrobe!
3) Nice Summer Top
Whilst we love a go-to white t-shirt in our summer wardrobe, you can’t beat getting dressed up over the summer months in a nice top! Whether it’s dressing up jeans, creating a show-stopping look or taking your outfit from day to night, a nice top is perfect for all occasions in summer. We’re proud to source and stock a wide range of statement tops for dressing up any outfit.
For a perfect day look, go for this bold and striking green Custommade top! The formal look of the loose fitting shirt is beautifully contrasted by the fun and floral pattern, making it an everyday outfit bound to turn heads.
We are big fans of camisoles in the summer, and even more so when they are combined with the current trend of animal print! This leopard print strappy top by Just Female is perfect for wearing under a blazer in the office, and paired with a bold skirt for night time glam!
Unleash your inner disco diva this season with this amazing sequin top by Access fashion! Its sparkling look is destined to dazzle and its mid length sleeves ensure you are comfortable whilst doing so!
Summer really is the time to experiment with colours and shapes so why not mix and match bold tops with different styles of trousers. Find out about all our favourite trousers for the season here.
4) Summer Dresses
Is it even summer if you're not wearing your favourite summer dress? We love getting dressed up in our favourite dresses in the warm months. They are incredibly easy to throw on at the start of the day, especially when teamed with your denim jacket!
Show off your figure in this flattering and oh-so-feminine dress by Onjenu. Its beautiful pattern is soft and whimsical, whilst its high low skirt created beautiful movement as you walk.
No one wants tight restrictive clothing in the warm weather which is why maxi dresses are so perfect. They’re long, light and billowy, not to mention stylish! We love the on trend snakeskin print of this Conditions Apply dress.
5) Summer AccessoriesNo summer look is complete without a few summer accessories! If you’re going to accessorise with anything this season make sure its a stylish pair of sunglasses! These rounded Furla Sunglasses are sophisticated and suit any face shape.
A silk scarf is perfect for adding some extra warmth on breezy afternoons. We love this colourful silk Becksondergaard scarf. Made with luxury silk, it's adorned by an array of colours which will pop on any outfit!
Feel like you’re on the beach no matter where you are! We’re reminded of the beach every time we look at this colourful Envy jewellery. It's fun and playfully mixes different colours and textures to come together as a piece quite like no other!
