You know what they say, all good things come to an end and same goes for the season of ice cream, relaxing getaways and long light evenings. But, thanks to the August bank holiday, at least summer will forever go out with a bang! Whether you’re headed to Notting Hill Carnival, a countryside retreat or on one last city break, make sure you enjoy summer’s last hurrah in style…
1. Notting Hill Carnival
You’re going to need a vibrant look to match this Caribbean carnival’s high energy, so go for this shimmering embellished bandeau as your statement piece. Then accentuate the colour of the sequins with a bright golden slip skirt and do your feet a favour by keeping things comfy with black boots made for walking and dancing.
2. City break
Jetting off on one last late-summer getaway? A floaty silk cami layered over these breezy polka-dot culottes will create a silhouette that just screams sophistication. Add some interest to your look with snakeskin accessories and a trending headband!
3. Festival weekend
Neon pieces were born to be worn at festivals, but they don’t have to be tacky. This lime printed midi skirt is a stylish take on the trend and, when paired with sporty additions, creates a cool and comfortable festival look. We’re due some sun this weekend so swap out those wellies for trainers!
4. Escape to the country
It looks like the utility trend is here to stay, so an androgynous playsuit with long-sleeves is the perfect investment for transition season and beyond. While it’s still warm, wear with straw sliders and summery add-ons. Come colder temperatures, it will look just as great with boots and a light jacket!
5. Night out
Turn heads on your girls night out-out in the slip dress of the summer: ready to go with a cute ruched side, fancy cowl neck and new-season animal print. Pretty pastel shoes and a diamanté micro-bag are a must but a leather jacket will help give the outfit a little grunge appeal.
