With the temperature continuing to soar, it only makes sense that we’re looking at our wardrobes in a different light, examining how well our current staples would hold up in the hot, humid climate we’re now experiencing. Will your favourite dress be far too clingy all of a sudden? Can you rely on your usual workwear for the office or will it be weighing you down before you’ve even powered up your laptop? These are the sort of critical questions we often ask ourselves as we head into the hottest months of the year.

Yet, despite the challenges of dressing for summer, it is the season that fashion lovers most look forward to as it provides them with so many different types and styles of clothing to choose from. From gorgeous floral dresses to statement tees, summer offers everyone the perfect opportunity to get away from stuffy clothes and embrace those lightweight fashionable pieces that they have been longing for.

Of course this year, things have been slightly different due to lockdown. With pubs and restaurants now all on the verge of re-opening however, now is the perfect time to shop for wholesale clothing and get those styles you’ll want to wear again and again. Whether you need a need dress for that social distanced pint you’re eager to have, or a fresh pair of sandals for your regular walks, we’ve put together a list of this season’s sought-after styles.

Lightweight Jersey Shirts

Sure, the temperature is soaring during the day but with sunlight lasting right up until 9 o’clock in the evening these days, you’ll want to have something to cover up with once the evening breeze sets in. A couple of thin jersey shirts are perfect for the task. You can easily wear them over a tank top with the sleeves rolled up during the day, or keep one folded away in your bag for emergencies. Thanks to their lightweight nature, they’ll hardly take up any space but you’ll be glad you have one around just in case.

Espadrille Wedges

There’s something about espadrilles that just screams summer, and what better way to give them a fashionable twist than to invest in a pair of wedges? The added high gives them such much needed glamour without taking away from their casual-cool vibe. Opt for a block colour that will pair well with everything from shorts to your favourite summer dress or embrace your wild side and invest in a pair of animal print espadrille wedges for an on-trend look.

Crop Tops

Spaghetti strap, Bardot sleeve, or ruched, whatever your preferred style is, crop tops have come a long way in recent years. Once a casual top reserved for the beach, these days they are a far classier affair. Once you get your hands on the perfect crop top, we doubt you’ll want to wear anything else from your wardrobe for the rest of the season. Other than a skirt or pair of short to go with it that is.
