Five Ways You Can Update Your Look For Summer

We’re currently experience a rarity in England at the moment… A heatwave… Yes, you read correctly. It’s caught most of us unaware to say the least and I’ve certainly panic bought a shit load of summer clothes! I’ve come to realise though that it’s not all about buying new pieces and there are other ways to update your wardrobe for summer without going crazy on ASOS or Topshop!

Throw on a pair of sunnies

This is definitely the easiest way to transform your outfit. No matter what you’re wearing, with your favourite sunglasses it will automatically update your look for summer. I’ve been head over heels with my Spitfire Mirrored Glasses (pictured). If you want to experiment

Invest in some summer dresses

My absolute go to outfit for summer is a cute dress and a pair of converse. I think I’ve worn that exact outfit at least five times this past week! This may be an option where you do have to spend some money but if you’re anything like me then it’s totally worth it! Boohoo are my favourite for affordable, cute, lightweight dresses that will fit seamlessly into your wardrobe!

Incorporate colour

Even though we all love a monochrome outfit, summer is the time for colour! Whether that’s incorporated into your outfit through bright accessories (I always rely on my bright red Zara clutch) or vibrant nail polish.

Scrap wearing tights

Tights frustrate the shit out of me in summer for many reasons so as soon as it’s hot enough, the tights come off! Any look is instantly more summery when you scrap the tights and wear some strappy sandals. Don’t forget to paint your toes a bright colour too!

It’s all about the denim

One of my favourite things about summer is experimenting with denim – jackets, skirts, jeans, dungarees, shorts, everything! Swap over your black jeans for a pair of distressed white ones or throw a light wash oversized jacket over your cute summer dress!

There’s a million and one ways to update your look for summer but these are just a few of my favourites and what I do! I’d love to know what you do to transform your outfit!
