Styling for summer can be tricky due to the British climate, and that makes layering a ‘must-do’ most of the time. There are some days, however, when you can cast the woollies aside and glory in the joy that separates, and sandals can bring to these occasions.
Monday Morning Meetings
Brighten up the start of the week by putting a relaxed twist on a traditional office look. Pencil skirts never go out of fashion, and they are actually very easy to wear, regardless of shape, age or size. Pick a classic material such as cotton and team it with a basic t-shirt, a basket bag and a great pair of raffia sandals for a look that will keep you looking cool yet business-like all through the day.
Barbecues should be all about kicking back with a burger in one hand and a glass of something fizzy in the other. This means that styling for the occasion should be all about comfort.
Team floaty maxi dresses from the likes of AX Paris with a pair of your favorite trainers and a bucket hat for a style solution that will work from day to night. Just don’t forget the sun cream.

Stay Cool by the Pool
If you’re heading to the pool, it’s time to have fun – both in the water and with your fashion choices. Mix up patterns as you team your favorite swimsuit or bikini with a versatile cover-up for when the splashing gets too much. Maxi skirts can be a great choice, as they are easy to take on and off, while a big basket bag is great for carrying your towel, portable charger, sun cream and any other essentials you need for your day.
Festivals are big news in the summer months and make a perfect excuse to don your favorite easy, breezy dresses. Be daring with patterns and remember that you won’t go wrong with a great animal print this year. Team with a bum bag and chunky boots for the perfect festival feel.
Hit the Beach
Midi dresses are made for the beach. They are easy to whip on and off in between tanning sessions and look great with a floppy hat and a pair of oversized sunniest.
