The sun is shining, tans are glowing, silk dresses are flowing in the breeze while icy lemonades are being passed around. For July, we are taking inspiration from the Spring/Summer 2014 catwalks and combining bohemian (Gucci, Givenchy, Isabel Marant) with sporty (Prada, Alexander Wang, Bottega Veneta) and, of course, basics, to go with everything.
We have chosen the three primary colours blue, red and yellow, fabulous worn monochrome against golden skin and even more fabulous when combined – a cobalt blue bikini and deep red nails and/or lips equals perfection. These bikinis are the ideal shade of blue for summer – to keep you looking fabulous on sandy beaches and dancing at beach bars. Lisa Marie Fernandez’s sporty bikini perfects the athletic trend with its scuba-inspired front zipper, yet still manages to be feminine and sexy. Nelly.com offers the same bright blue option in a super frilly bikini for those ultimate girly-girls and for a fraction of the price, at just £40 for the set. Add perfectly manicured yellow nails that will complement the blues.
A pair of super distressed denim shorts are a must every summer – look to Topshop for their range of ripped short shorts like the one above, which you can get for just £32. Cute cover-ups are also important to keep looking stylish at the beach and exploring summer locations. This bohemian embroidered tunic from Next is the perfect equivalent to an Isabel Marant top and is just under £30. For an all-summer boho look, get this fringed leather shopper from ZARA – its oversized design and bright red colour make it uber-cool.
For summer nights out, choose ZARA’s mesh dress with jersey stripes to channel Prada and combine it with these oh-so-sexy satin sandals to break the athletic feel of it. Otherwise, go for this super-cute, yellow shift dress from River Island – the “painted on” print is so Céline.These items are all on sale – so snag them while they’re still in stock!
