We’ve rounded up our favourite buys of the week to help you beat the heat
If you’re British, chances are you’ve spent the last week sweating through the heatwave while simultaneously trying to avoid being pinged by the NHS app. While we can’t do anything about the latter, in today’s Style List we’re picking some new-in faves that will help you navigate the next hot spell in style.
Little Miss Sunshine
We love this sunny yellow flounce detail dress from H&M, £24.99. Unashamedly girly, the loose cut is not only flattering but perfect for keeping you cool in this heat and we love the flouncy shoulders and bow detail along the back which provides enough coverage to hide the back of your bra too. Just add sandals and sunscreen.
If you’re worried about yellow not being the colour for you, we are also obsessed with the pretty beige version, below:
Forgotten how to wear heels but got an invitation to an occasion that requires something other than slippers? We love these chic pointed flats, only £20.
New Season, Now
Okay, so the last thing you probably want to buy in this heat is a jumper but hear us out – the end of July and beginning of August are when the best bits for Autumn drop so make sure you snap up this Linden jumper, £350, new in from Shrimps before everyone else.
Playsuits are the perfect picnic option as there’s no awkward rearranging as you sit down or worrying about flashing your pants. This gingham puff sleeve version, £22.99, will look cute with espadrilles and a raffia bag.
Stylish storage can be hard to find but we love these seagrass baskets from John Lewis, £30. Practical enough to hold odds and sods but pretty enough to be seen, these will look great on open shelves.
Trying to keep cool at night can be difficult during a heatwave so look for styles in natural fabrics such as cotton or silk. We love this shortie set, £65, from The White Company – they’re cool and comfy but also stylish enough to open the door to the delivery driver without blushing.
Squinting is NEVER a good look so make sure your eyes are protected with these tortoiseshell unisex James sunglasses, £150, from Taylor Morris. The classic frame will suit virtually any face shape – our favourite colour combination? The tortoiseshell and green lenses which suit every skin tone and won’t drain you.
If You Buy One Thing…
And finally we’re ending with a bargain buy that you can’t miss out on – whether you’re jetting off to Ibiza or heading to Bournemouth beach, make sure you sunbathe in style with this Missoni-esque swimsuit, now only £10.50 in the sale. Yes, that’s right – £10.50. We’ll take two.
