High Street Summer Style
After what felt like the longest winter, summer is well and truly here. With foreign holidays back on the cards, garden parties and many other summer events, I have selected some of my favourite looks to give you a little style inspiration.
The Little White Dress
The alternative to the little black dress, a white dress is a summer staple that lends itself well to many occasions. Whether you choose to go for a mini, midi or maxi option make sure that it showcases your favourite aspects of your figure.This dress is super versatile and can be worn dressed up for a summer party or dressed down for a shopping trip.It comes with a belt that you can tie either at the front or the back, or swap it entirely for a different colour / or no belt at all.
To compliment this outfit I have chosen tan accessories that are a simple neutral option. The wedge sandals are very comfortable and the neutral colour ensures that your legs are elongated. The tan bag has some lovely detail that compliments the embroidery in the dress.
I have to also give some attention to these amazing sunglasses. They are a very similar to the beautiful Chanel sunglasses that retail for over £300,
www.Shein.co.uk for £7.00. (N.B these are fashion sunglasses and not recommended for strong sunlight.)

Floral prints are always popular in spring summer and H&M have done some lovely prints this year that are stunning and lots of fun. This dress is one of my favourites, the beautiful halter neck makes it super flattering for people with a smaller bust line and the ‘A’ line drop of the skirt gives it a lovely comfortable feel. The real show stopper of this dress is in the detail, the tie back enables is beautiful as well as practical, enabling you to adjust the fit to suit your figure. Add a denim jacket and you are good to go for any rain showers that we may be blessed with during our typically English summertime.

The Printed Co-ord
Another alternative to the dress is the co-ord, this outfit is from H&M and would be perfect for a summer festival or tropical holiday. What I really like about that you can change it up very easily, adding a white t/shirt or shirt to wear with the skirt and a pair of shorts or mini skirt to wear with the to

The Ultimate White Jeans
Always searching for the perfect jeans may take on a whole new meaning when you start looking for the perfect ‘white jean. I’ve chosen these skinny jeans from Zara because they work best for our beautiful models figure, however there are many great styles, straight leg and boot cut have made a reappearance this year and in fashion terms have superceded the skinny. However, I always advise my clients to go for ‘style’ over simply following fashion. Therefore make sure you but the best style for you and your shape, this way you will feel comfortable and happy in your choices. What’s important is that the fit is great and the materials are generally good quality, ensuring that you can’t see through the jeans and jeans with a decent lycra content will enable them to keep their shape.

My final pick is super glamorous, sequins are all over the high street this year, and you can choose to either go full on like this gorgeous sequin jump suit with an open back detail and tie at the front. Wearing a jumpsuit can be much more practical than a mini skirt or dress and is equally as striking. The high street is full of sequins, I think it’s a nod to the fact we all want to go out and get dressed up again after the last couple of years staying at home. If you’re not confident with full on sparkle, choose one piece and mix it up with a plain white shirt.
Jumpsuit - Zara £49.99
