My Summer Fashion and Accessory Must Haves for This Year!

At the minute the shops are FULL of amazing summer clothes and accessories.  Trends change so quickly that it is sometimes hard to keep up with what is fashionable, and suddenly your summer clothes from last year are completely redundant.  I thought I would put together a mood board featuring some of my favourite picks from this summer, and what I would love to have in my wardrobe.  I have chosen pieces that would look great together, to give an idea of what the whole outfit would look like…….


Giselle Ruffle Jumpsuit – Whistles

I know that the jumpsuit has been back in fashion for a while now, but I must admit, it has taken me some time to come round to it.  When they first appeared in the shops I thought they were hideous! The most annoying part about them, is that from a distance, they might look like a nice dress, but then I would approach the rail to find that it had two big legs in it.  This drove me crazy.  However, I must admit, the jumpsuit has come a long way and I can now say that I am quite the fan.  I think this Giselle Ruffle Jumpsuit from Whistles is absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!! Firstly, the colour is just perfect for summer.  It basically has all of my favourite colours in it (pink, white and navy).  I LOVE this dusky pink colour at the minute, and the floral pattern is so on trend too.  Secondly, I absolutely love that it has culotte style legs.  Culottes are another trend that I am absolutely loving.  I think they look so effortlessly cool and are sooooo comfortable! This jumpsuit also has a fitted waist which can be very flattering.  Last but not least, I think the ruffle capped sleeve is just so, so pretty.  I love a little capped sleeve.  It makes something feel very comfortable but still nice and girly.  This jumpsuit would great during the day with some flat shoes and equally great at night time, paired with some nice heels.  I think this is something I would get a lot of wear out of.

Pimkie Espadrille Platform Sandal – Asos

Espadrilles have always been a popular summer shoe.  They are lightweight, comfortable and pretty.  Platform sandles are another popular summer shoe, for the same reasons. So, what’s better than an espadrille or a platform……? An ‘espadrille platform’ lol.  I am loving anything metallic this summer.  Whether it is metallic shoes, or bags, or sunglasses, I want it! Lol.  These metallic Pimkie espadrille platforms are basically the perfect shoe for me lol.  They look soooo nice with the Whistles jumpsuit.

Mini Palm Leaf Stud Earings and Anais Petal Hoop Drop Earings – Oliver Bonas

Pretty earrings are a must all year round, but this summer big and crazy earings are back in fashion, and I am loving it.  These Anais Petal Hoop Drop Earrings from Oliver Bonas are so gorgeous.  I love gold and white, and these would go with absolutely everything.  I have also included these Mini Palm Leaf Studs because you can’t go wrong with a gold stud, and they are leaf print, so of course I love them.  I have quite a few holes in my ears – including a triple forward helix which has been healing for about a year now (sad face) – so I am always on the look out for cute earrings.

Tilda Cross Body Bag – Maison Heroine

I am beyond obsessed with this grey cross body bag from Masion Heroine.  I just find cross body bags so handy and comfortable. The best part about this bag is that it is pink on the inside and has gorgeous gold hardware.  I think it is stunning, and again, is so gorgeous with the pink jumpsuit and metallic shoes – grey goes with absolutely everything,  it’s such a good neutral colour.

Diornightfall Sunglasses – Dior

Last but not least are these amazing pink, white and gold Dior sunglasses.   They are a little bit crazy looking, but I think you can get away with something like this in the summertime.  I love the white arms and I think that this makes them so versatile.  The metallic gradation lense is so different and pretty.


That’s it for my summer picks for now.  Let me know which trends you are loving this summer J
