Channel fashion-girl vibes in some on-trend wide leg trousers. Go for a leg-lengthening stripe, summery florals, or even plain black trousers if you want to look smart. Wear with a crop top, sandals, minimal jewellery and finally barely-there makeup to finish off the look.

Leather in summer? Yep, that’s ok too. Team a denim buttoned-down shirt with either faux leather shorts or a skirt for off-duty model vibes. Or, for a fire night out look, throw on a bralet or crop top instead. Also, faux leather jackets can be perf for summer too, as a coverup over a pretty floral dress.

Cami Tops

Style a plain black cami with pretty much anything for an easy daytime look. Wide leg jeans and wedges are an especially easy way to nail casual-cool. Or, another option is to wear a black cami bodysuit with a distressed denim skirt and trainers for a cute summer style.

Graphic T-Shirts

Yep, graphic t-shirts are still a ‘thing’, and it’s all about the band tee this summer. Wear with denim and gladiator sandals while the mercury’s soaring. You could even tie up the front to show a bit more skin. Or, team your top with leather look trousers and heels instead if there’s a chill in the air.

Go head to toe minimal in a simple black dress, because a lace up front mini dress is a gorge look for a summer night out. Or, go full 90s with racer neck black dress, high top trainers, and finally finish off the look by tying a denim jacket or shirt around your waist.

Is the sun cracking the paving stones? Then a strappy cami dress is a great option to keep you cool. But don’t forget, layering is totally acceptable for summer too. So, add a t-shirt under your black cami dress for an effortlessly cool outfit with a retro edge.

If you’ve got a summer night out then why not opt for a black jumpsuit with a deep V, for an absolutely knockout look. Or, keep things casual instead by adding trainers to a loungewear jumpsuit = instant cool-girl vibes. This is so the perfect instant outfit for everyday wear.
