Here comes the sun…hopefully! Summer should be well and truly with us by now, so it’s time to get that wardrobe sunshine ready. Take your pick of the hottest new trends to see you through the sunny season in style:
Spending the Summer in a city like London can sometimes pose its challenge: one day it’s sweltering hot, the next day is cool and rainy. I have been thinking about what would my style tips be for having a stylish and comfortable Summer in London and this is what I came up with:
Wear a versatile length – Regardless of what the weather is, Summer maxi dresses are here to save the day! They’re versatile and can be worn whether the days are on the hot or the cool side, all you need to do is layer up or down or wear a pair of comfortable sneakers or let your toes get some sun with a pair of sandals.
Comfort and style – One of the things I have come to appreciate ever since I moved to London, is the importance of comfortable shoes, as one ends up walking so much. Whether a pair of flat shoes, sandals or sneakers (my current favourites), I can’t live without flats anymore. It’s not a problem, as they can be just as stylish as heels.
Wellbeing starts from the inside – When it’s hot and especially if you have to go underground (Central Line, eurgh), make sure to stay well hydrated and carry a bottle of water with you at all times. Do like me and get a cute bottle with binchotan charcoal in it to filter out impurities – it’s great!
There’s always the sun – Well, we’re talking about London so using the word ‘always’ might be a bit of an overstatement. However, when it comes out, it can be quite strong. As such, don’t forget to wear a hat (animal ears optional, haha) and the good old sunscreen.

Sunday is the perfect time to kick back, have a cup of tea and pick a pretty dress (or skirt, or blazer, or…) for that wedding or Summer party you’ll be going to. I already picked a few favourites from New Look, if you fancy any of them just click through. For some reason and despite all the choice available, I ended up picking a lot of light pink. You can never go wrong with pink, right?
I have something else for you: if you fancy yourself a dress expert on celebrities and dresses, try the quiz after the jump, it’s a lot of fun! I got 21 out of 24 – let me know how many you guessed in the comments!
