I find summer the most difficult season for outfits. It always seems the weather is against you when you find the perfect outfit. I'm always after a summer outfit with style and comfort. One that looks super on trend but keeps me cool and comfy.

Here are 5 complete different and very affordable looks I think are perfect Summer that won't break the bank. All pieces that can be mixed and matched with so many outfits for different occasions and all from your high street fashion favourites.

 With English Summer it's always hit-and-miss so wearing black is totally acceptable and sometimes can we the perfect way to stay warmer in the less summery days.
This look is a great way to cover up in summer but with the right fabrics to keep you cool, as there is nothing worse than being too hot, with nothing you can do about it!
A floaty summer maxi skirt with high waist and side splits in a light fabric is good for keeping cool and wearing a skirt without flashing to much flesh if that's not your thing.
A crochet top is great with a thick knit for warmth and comfort but the crochet knit still lets the air in.
If you're obsessed with chokers like me, this thin choker won't have your neck feeling claustrophobic in the sun.

I'm loving the retro/80's trend of embroidery and patches so you can customise your own items or buy these super affordable pre-customised piece from high street brands such as New Look, Zara and Topshop.
These cute high waisted short with sequin patches are such a flattering cut and shape that cinch you in at the waist and flatter your thighs with the slight flare and turn up hems, and for only £19.99 you get an super cool summer retro look for a bargains.
Paired with a simple white ribbed body really let the shorts shine but accessories complete the look.
With a pineapple on the shorts, why not rock a pineapple sequin bag, simple choker and amazing gold block trainers.
This is the ultimate festival look for summer 2016!
I want it. I want it all!

| DRESS: http://goo.gl/sW8kXW | SUNGLASSES: http://goo.gl/bnpIy1 | SHOES: http://goo.gl/2T5RfA | CHOKER: http://goo.gl/YisoFS | BAG: http://goo.gl/cLVyfM | EARRINGS: http://goo.gl/FkuxbB |

Rose gold and mint green are the new pastel queens of 2016, that work in complete harmony together to create the most perfectly pretty summer look.
A cami dress is the ultimate summertime staple we all have, but I'm in love with this mint green lace overlay dress that is just so perfect.
Paired with these rose gold/pale lilac item just look so high-end even though all these pieces can be picked up from your local high street - or affordable online shops shops - it's such an expensive look.

| PLAYSUIT: http://goo.gl/6SBDqH | ESPADRILLES: http://goo.gl/3oueEg | RINGS: http://goo.gl/T7dpu1 | NECKLACE: http://goo.gl/Llqq2h | BAG: http://goo.gl/WPLCkG |

Summer is the season of Boho Chic and it wouldn't be officially summer without investing in a perfectly hippy inspired outfit with tassels, beige and off white colours, scalloping and laser cut detailing.
This simple look of naturals and textures shouts 'summer!'.
A layered playsuit with simple espadrilles with a little help from some subtle accessories and a bold printed bag as the statement piece creates a total festival worthy chic outfit everyone would be envious of.

One thing so difficult in summer is finding an outfit you can wear all day from morning to evening.
In the morning out shopping and in the evening to a meal that keeps you cool in the sun and warm in the shade but still looks summery and chic.
I love this combination of simple piece that together could be a straight from a celeb's wardrobe.
This off the shoulder nautical striped shirt is so unique but perfect for summer. A light weight fabric with off the shoulder neckline is great for being in the sun. Paired with a white jean, simple sandals and gorgeous premium suede bag is the ideal look for being on the go, heading for a day out in the sun or an evening meal on the terrace.

So, they're my 5 Looks for Summer!

  1. These looks are all so beautiful! I tried that black floral skirt on the other day and it didn't suit my body shape at all - gutted!
