Doesn’t it feel good to dress up again? We’re treating every outing as an event and dressing appropriately (or rather inappropriately). We’re embracing colour, print, detail and big bold statement dressing.
Zara clearly aim to slay with their stunning Summer collection. Clothes, shoes and accessories available instore and online.
They are definitely denim, they are definitely trousers, but these embroidered harem-style pants are a million miles away from your average pair of jeans. They definitely nail the dress code.
The Tti African print mini dress is our personal pick of TemAd Collections’ vibrant summer collection. The deep blue shades are serene and details such as ruffles and pockets are guaranteed to win our hearts. We also love seeing designer Temi looking so beautiful in her own designs.
The clashing colours and monochrome pattern elevate these pointy Ella pumps from Pretty Ballerinas.
If maxi’s and midi’s leave you cold, how about the flounce dress from Lindex which hits at knee length and is strewn with painterly summer florals in subtle soft shades.
Paula Knorr graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2015 and was awarded NEWGEN by the British Fashion Council that same year. Her designs embody glamour and we are utterly smitten by this red metallic two-piece featuring a cape sleeve top and drape pants in recycled polyester.
Layered necklaces are definitely having a moment (more is more, right?). We like this 18kt gold plated sterling silver version from Feather & Chain. The coin pendant features 'Anahita' the Persian goddess of fertility, water & patroness of women.
Leopard print, ruffles, shoulders and more, all wrapped up in one pretty dress from All Saints.
Bright, bold and sassy plus a fantabulous parrot sequinned onto the back panel. Certainly not your average vintage-style boiler suit and it’s available in sizes 8 – 28.

We think the Happy Boyfriend silk shirt from Okapi is particularly aptly named. It makes us happy just looking at this cheering colourful print.
This gorgeous frilled blouse is from the Artisan Studio range from Monsoon and has been created in Jaipur using handcraft techniques and organic cotton.
Big, bold and gold. The Hoya textured stack-heeled sandal from Office.
Designed by Lindsey Brown for poolside lounging but we’d be tempted to slip this sumptuous silk kaftan over jeans for sipping prosecco anywhere the sun is shining.
How cute is this bra top and short co-ord from H&M’s collaboration with lemlem, the womenswear brand founded by Ethiopian supermodel and empowerment advocate, Liya Kebede?
