We're sharing our top tips for summer outfits and the shoes to complete your killer looks in our latest post. From the perfect high heels for summer to summer sandals, we've got you covered.
There's just something about the sun shining that puts everyone in a good mood. Whether you're enjoying picnics in the local park or jetting off to warmer climates this summer, it's safe to say we're all very much looking forward to summer.
For anyone that's wondering – no, it's not too early to start planning our summer outfits. As we gear up to exit lockdown, now is the perfect time to start curating your ideal wardrobe. From desk to daiquiri or stepping out for date night, you can count on us to serve up some serious inspiration.
Although a girl can never have too many pairs of heels, we wanted to showcase some of our top picks right now.
The chain trend isn't just in for the season; it's here to stay. So, if you're looking for a summer heel that will become a staple in your wardrobe all year round, check out our PU Lock Chain stiletto heels. The Triumph features a super cute chain and padlock detailing complemented by a stiletto heel to match. From pairing with a chic blazer dress to teaming with jeans, one thing's for sure, you'll feel like a badass. Plus, with five colours to choose from, you're spoilt for choice.
You know what they say, diamonds are a girl's best friend. Our dazzling diamante heels will have you feeling like you've just stepped straight off the catwalk. While our Midnight heels are the ultimate party shoe, the 4.5" heel means you'll be dancing in comfort all night long. After being locked down for so long, it's only right to be extra AF! Best believe your shoes will be the talking point, whether you pair them with a little black dress or cropped jeans and a cute top.
If open-toe is more your vibe, take a look at our Glimmer nude heels. No matter your preference, you can count on us to ensure you're putting your best foot forward this summer.
Long gone are the days that kitten heels are frowned upon. We're rocking kitten heels with pride, sis'. Give off some serious Hailey Bieber vibes in our Cabo strappy lace-up kitten heels. Thanks to a super cute 3.2" kitten heel and supportive straps, these bad boys will take you from brunch to dancing with your besties into the early hours. The only dilemma here is which colour you should choose. We vote for all four.
P.S. we know it may have been a while since you last stepped out in heels. Thankfully, we put together a guide on how to walk in heels for anyone who's out of practice.
As we prepare to summer like we've never summered before, our feet are going to need a rest. Thankfully, we've got that covered too. Whether you're slipping into slides as you hang out poolside or you need the perfect pair of summer sandals for brunch with the girls, our collection has been created with comfort in mind.
If you're in search of a pair of chunky statement sandals that you can dress up or down, our Carmen style is the answer to your prayers. Complete with cute quilting and a slight platform, these are a step up from your standard sandals. See what we did there? These are the perfect sandal with plenty of colourways to complement freshly painted toes and monochrome outfits this summer.
If you're kicking back in the garden or catching some rays at the beach, having a pair of sandals you can slip on and off is a must. Our Livin sandals feature a square toe and chunky basket weave straps, making them the perfect choice to complete any outfit. From colourful midi dresses to denim mom-jeans, these sandals will become a staple in your summertime wardrobe.
When it comes to selecting summer shoes that will never go out of fashion, gladiator sandals are always a safe bet. Our jewel detailed Sadie sandals are a fun way to add some edge to your outfit. Choose from black, white or nude for a sandal that is sure to go with any outfit.
Look, let's be real here. As much as we'd like guaranteed sunshine for the whole of summer, we know the great British weather better than that. So, if you're shopping for boots this summer, we've got you covered too.
Heading to a festival this summer? Up your footwear game and upgrade your wellies to our super-chic Andi boots. These are as practical as they are stylish, making them the perfect pairing for your summer outfits. Whether you're teaming them with a floaty smock dress or a figure-hugging jumpsuit, they're sure to take your look to the next level.
If you’re avoiding PU and leather as the temperatures rise, our Trust sock ankle boots make for an excellent choice. We can already see you hot stepping to your favourite bar in these, babe.
No matter the season, knee-high boots are always a good shout. Whether you're pairing our white Mine knee-highs with cycle shorts and an oversized tee, or you're slipping into your favourite co-ord, you'll be rocking these on rotation. If white isn't your vibe, we've got black and camel too.
In Maya Jama's words, here's to the 'f*ck off boots' this summer. Never let anyone tell you boots are only for winter; we can rock them all year round.
TOP SUMMER OUTFIT STYLING TIPS
While shoes are our thing, we know how to put together a fire outfit, too. So, before signing off, we wanted to share some of our top summer styling tips with our PD gals.
Light colours are your BFF
If your wardrobe is giving off some serious Wednesday Addams vibes, it's about time you injected a hint of colour. There's no need to start with bright neons and bold prints, but introducing some cute pastels and nudes will transform your wardrobe from winter to summer. Plus, wearing black in the sun is never recommended.
Flowy outfits should be a summer go-to
Rid yourself of the fear of looking frumpy in flowy outfits and give it a go. Whether you're rocking a smock dress or a midi-skirt, you'll nail that summer lovin' vibe. Top tip; when it's warm outside, light cotton, chiffon and silk will be your saviour.
Opt for nude accessories
If you've embraced colour, you might find accessorising your summer look is a challenge. Thankfully, it's not often you'll go wrong with some cute nude accessories. Whether you opt for a light beige clutch, nude strappy sandals, or a satchel that Alan from The Hangover would rock with pride, we're big fans of those earthy tones.
Braids are your saviour
Anyone else forgotten how to style their hair? After spending the past year doing the bare minimum to our locks, braids will be your saviour. Not only are they super cute, but they’re also super practical for summer too.
You should own at least one summer hat
If you're one of those that claim you "don't have a face for hats", you're wrong. You've not found the right style to suit you. Everyone should own at least one summer hat. Not only are they the perfect finish for your summer look, but they offer much-needed protection from the sun’s harmful rays. From wide-brim straw fedoras to colourful caps and bucket hats, now is the time to start your search for the ideal summer hat.
You can never have too many shoes
Of course, we're a little biased when it comes to shoes. But, never let anyone tell you that you have too many shoes. When we're styling our summer wardrobes, we need to be ready for all occasions. From killer lace-up heels to cute peep-toes and comfortable flats, you deserve options.
You absolutely can wear heels every day
If you're wondering 'how can I wear heels casually', wonder no more, my friend. Whether you're heading out for an early morning iced-coffee or returning to the office, you can wear heels casually. A killer 6" heel doesn't need to be your go-to choice. Instead, opt for a kitten stiletto heel or a pair of blocked-heeled mules. Whether you're pairing them with jeans and a tee or a midi-dress fit for the office, a pair of well-chosen summer heels can take your outfit from a solid 7 to a straight 10. Trust us; you can rock it.
Laying your outfit out on the 20th of June is just the start. We've got an entire summer wardrobe to plan, ladies. Let's get to work. Don't forget to follow our Instagram for some serious style inspo on the daily.
