Summer Style Lookbook - My Latest Discoveries and Fashion Favourites

Sunday, July 21, 2019

Since summer is well and truly upon us, I knew it was time to revamp my wardrobe. Although this is arguably my favourite season for fashion, I tend to stick to my comfort zone of white, grey and pastel blue quite a lot. However, there are some gorgeous items on the high street right now that are bolder and much more out-there than I'm used to, so I thought I'd push myself to try some new items. I'm absolutely in love with everything I bought and hopefully there'll be something in here for you!

Rose Print Floral Dress - Zara

As you can tell, I'm a huge fan of Zara's floral dresses this season, and this one is no exception. Upon initial sight, I didn't think that the cream and rose print would suit me but I actually think it looks lovely on, especially with a tan. The puffy sleeves are right on trend, and I also love the details like the front tie and side slit at the hem, which really make it look more expensive and flattering.

Green Polka Dot Skort - Zara

Perhaps one of my favourite additions to my summer wardrobe is this polka dot skort, which will be guaranteed to turn heads. The pastel lime green isn't a shade I'd normally go for but it's actually really complimentary for my complexion and looks adorable when paired with white. The ruffled trim adds a more feminine and flirty edge to this garment, but since it's a skort you won't have to worry about it being blown up by the wind. I simply can't get enough of this item, especially the metallic sheen it has that looks gorgeous when the sun catches it!

Orange Floral Print Dress - Zara

If you would've asked me a year ago if I'd wear orange, my reply would be absolutely no chance, yet I've absolutely fallen in love with this dress. The floral print alongside this colour makes it perhaps the boldest item I've ever owned, but it definitely screams summer and is right on fashion. The wide neckline is very flattering on the collarbones, and I also love the floaty sleeves, making it an all-round gorgeous item!

Swiss Embroidery Crop Top - Stradivarius

As soon as I spotted this in Stradivarius, I knew that it was totally me. Anything that is white and lacy or embroidery is really my style, and the ruffled detail around the top adds some extra interest. The figure-hugging style is flattering and it's also cropped, making it perfect to style with some high-waisted jeans or shorts. I definitely think this can be styled in a variety of ways, whether you want to dress it down or go for a more flirty and girly alternative.

Red Floral Co-Ord Set - Zara

Midi skirts and floral prints are both on-trend right now, and so this co-ord is definitely a must-have for this summer. The skirt, albeit being more like a maxi skirt on me since I'm so small, is very flowy and airy, making it perfect for the warmer months, and the side slits add a flirty and fashionable touch to it. The matching crop top rouches in and is adjustable, sporting the same wide neckline and short puff sleeves that you can see everywhere right now. Whether you decided to wear these alone or paired together, I definitely think that it's a gorgeous outfit that will guarantee to turn heads.

Puff Sleeved Button Down Dress (River Island)

A classic cream dress is a staple for anyone in summer, yet this one from River Island incorporates some of the most on-trend elements right now, such as the puff sleeves and buttons down the front. It's a really flattering fit, as it's figure-hugging but still comfortable, and it's a more modest length for those of you who don't like wearing super short dresses. I can already tell that this will be something I reach for constantly!

Floral V Neck Wrapover Top - H&M

If you know me at all then you'll understand how this top is completely out of my comfort zones, as my petite figure and small chest means I normally steer clear of any low-cut or v-neck tops. However, I spotted this wrapover top and thought I'd embrace it, since it was too pretty to leave behind. The black floral print is a gorgeous combination that makes it perfect for transitioning into nighttime, yet the open back and tied detail adds a more flirty and feminine touch that I adore. Whether you style this with jeans or a floaty skirt, I can guarantee it'll look lovely.

Yellow Floral Bardot Blouse - H&M

I love wearing bardot tops and find that the style is right up my street, since they're very flattering on the shoulders and collarbones. However, I'd never normally opt for a colour as bright as yellow, and so this blouse was a huge step outside of my comfort zone. However, I've really fallen in love with the girly style, and I've found myself reaching for this top frequently.

Red Floral Bustier Sundress - New Look

A sundress is a must-have for the warmer months, and I adore this one that I found in New Look. It's floaty, comfortable and I can already tell it'll be ideal to throw on whilst I'm on holiday, plus it has pockets! It also has a built-in bust which means you don't need to wear a bra and it makes it more flattering for someone like me with a petite figure.

After all these new additions to my wardrobe, I don't think I'll need to buy clothes for quite some time! I'm honestly in love with all of them, and I'd love to know which item is your favourite!
