Sun Spotter: Our Blog

DPS option 2

June. Think BBQ’s on the beach, strolls through the park and dinner in the garden. Summer is well and truly upon us and we’re ready to reflect our mood through our clothes! This month is all about bright, bold colour pops, statement prints, ruffles and textures. If it seems like that’s out of your comfort zone, just remember, a smile can make any outfit. The key to perfecting any look this summer is confidence, and we’re here to give you lots of it!

The start of the summer season means a holiday is on the horizon! Whether you’re jetting off to the Caribbean or the Canaries, our summer holiday shop will leave everyone around you hot under the collar, and not because of the weather! First on every girls’ holiday list is new swimwear. Whether you’re a bikini beach babe or a swimsuit senorita, head to H&M for this season’s hottest trends. Whilst you’re sipping cocktails on the sun lounger, posting holiday selfies around the pool, people at home are going to throw shade. Simply slip on your Claire’s rose gold aviators and large floppy hat from Zara to block out the haters and continue sunning yourself in style.

The sun might set, but we’re turning the heat up more than ever. These pink holographic glitter footbeds from Office will take you from day to night in a few simple steps. First step, get changed into something that’s worthy of a typical holiday balcony picture, and nothing screams holiday snap more than your favourite summer dress! This summer, we suggest going bold. Colour, texture, design all in one outfit. Risky? Perhaps. But worth it? Most definitely! This sheer fluted front dress from French Connection is what dreams are made of. And the lightweight fabric means it’s perfect for whatever the night ahead holds, whether that’s sitting down to a sophisticated al fresco meal with your partner or dancing until dawn with the girls.

If dresses aren’t your thing, why not opt for a classic top and trouser combo. A pair of high waisted white flares would look great with this yellow crop top from Zara. The floral lace details, open back and tie around the waist just ooze sex appeal. But if you begin to get chills down the spine, wrap up in this eyelet utility jacket from Gap. Double denim might be a no-go, but double white? Perfectly acceptable!
