At the start of a new year I like to take stock of my closet and strategise what new additions I might make. Usually I’ll look at what’s currently on trend along with any gaps I have in my wardrobe and pinpoint a few things to purchase from there. Shopping for summer is always fun as the relaxed vibe of the season means it’s a good opportunity to invest in some bold and playful pieces along with standout accessories. Here’s what I have my eye on this month…
Valentino’s Rockstud heels and flats are a signature style of the brand and now they’re taking it into summer footwear territory with these slides. The navy and white colour combination feels perfect for this time of year and the studs are an edgy touch.
Circular bags are a huge trend and this one looks like a work of art that you can carry on your shoulder. The beaded strap is able to be detached allowing for plenty of versatility.
This one stood out to me because of its departure from the shape of a traditional tote. The round style looks modern whilst its beautiful tan colour makes it a versatile classic.
Linen dresses are a welcome trend this season due to their relaxed vibe and the added bonus that they require minimal effort on the ironing front. The sunny yellow of this Zimmermann frock caught my eye as it’s so perfect right now. Bold stripes and sweet ruffled details meet to great effect, making for a great go-to dress.
This top is quite high on the adorable scale with its tie straps and gathered finish. Perfect with everything from a denim skirt to tailored shorts, it’s made for enjoying sunny days.
I couldn’t resist the matching pants to the above top! How cute do they look as a set?
Simple pointed flats at a reasonable price—what’s not to love? They’re also a great colour that will really work back with a huge chunk of my wardrobe.
Statement sunglasses are the ideal accessory to lift an outfit and this pair, with its faux-pearl embellishment really makes for a fun addition to any look.
I’m a firm believer in staying safe in the sun and this hat fits the bill. As a bonus they’re also on sale.
I can envisage these architectural earrings making a stylish addition to myriad outfits and they’ll definitely be able to transition into next season, allowing me to get maximum cost per wear.
Breezy dresses are one of my favourite things during the warmer months and this mini dress with its tie detail will most certainly get more than a few outings for the remainder of the season.
