Get Your 5 a Day With These Fruity ‘Fits

Appearing in bold and statement prints or smaller micro nods to the trend, the variety of ways to rock fruit print mean the possibilities for summer outfits are truly endless.

The summer months bring colour and freshness to your evening dinner plate, and the same can be said for your wardrobe too! As the weather warms up (please universe) and fake tan gets topped up with a real one, the urge to embrace bold, primary colours increases along with the fun and flirty vision that’s forced into hiding during the season of jumpers and boots. And what screams Italian vineyard or English orchard during a heatwave more than the humble fruit print?!

What screams Italian vineyard or English orchard during a heatwave more than the humble fruit print?!

Dream brands such as Realisation Par and Revolve have this trend nailed to a tee, with their classic itty bitty dresses offering the perfect base for a youthful and playful look that screams hot girl summer to the max. The trend has trickled down to some of our high street faves this season too however, with good ol’ Zara, Mango and ASOS offering chic, simple and effortless interpretations of the trend that embody what it is to dress for the hot, sticky weather we are so desperately craving. Lemon and cherry prints are perhaps the most popular fruit features to be found in the shops right now, having us dreaming of a Sicilian getaway or stroll through downtown L.A. We can dream, right?! 

Which pieces are going straight into your basket?

Jewellery: the fun, flirty, low commitment fashion purchase that can take a look from classic to current as quick as you can press 'continue to checkout'.

Jewellery: the fun, flirty, low commitment fashion purchase that can take a look from classic to current as quick as you can press ‘continue to checkout’. It’s these non essential purchases that are a style lovers dream- the items we might not have been able to justify during the past 12 months but that really make you feel like you’ve got your sh*t together when you put them on.

Resin and clay rings are next inline as Instagram’s current must-have accessory.

Making kitsch beaded jewellery that looked like it jumped right out of our 12 year old self’s dressing up box took the world by storm during quarantine as a fun and funky pastime, and the rainbow trend shows no sign of stopping now too. Resin and clay rings are next inline as Instagram’s current must-have accessory, with these chunky babes continuing the momentum of the bright and bold trend that is a maximalist dresser’s dream. Etsy, Instagram and Depop take the crown here as the go-to destination to shop the trend, and their affordability makes boasting a collection of interchangeable statement pieces all the more achievable.

Other notable trends include pearls (Bridgerton and other period dramas we thank you), seaside inspired jewels (still seeking a slice of escapism? Us too) and bangles (hello 90s disco), and the variety of styles means there really is something for everyone here! 

Which trend will you be rocking during hot girl summer?

Low Key to Dressy Co-ords That Will Never Fail You

Whether it's a trip to big Tesco (a 10/10 day out) or a bottomless brunch with the girls, there are co-ords from dressed down to dazzling that fit every occasion.

Although jeans and a nice top is a pretty fail-safe go-to, sometimes finding the perfect outfit combination requires a little too much concentration when you’re running out the door and an espresso martini is calling your name. Enter: the humble co-ord. A perfect two piece, a pre mixed cocktail if you will, the one you can always rely on when time is short and the style stakes are high. Whether it’s a trip to big Tesco (a 10/10 day out) or a bottomless brunch with the girls, there are co-ords from dressed down to dazzling that fit every occasion. 

A perfect two piece, a pre mixed cocktail if you will, the one you can always rely on when time is short and the style stakes are high.

And not every two piece need give off Cher Horowitz plaid skirt and blazer vibes, oh no, you can absolutely achieve chic 2021 realness in all of these dreamy combos. Notable mentions go to the Zara silk style tie dye trouser and shirt situation, and Kitri Studio’s feather trousers and PJ top which exude effortless sexiness in one fell swoop. If casual is your thing (socialising is tiring okay) then the matching loungewear options are endless too- the co-ord really does offer as many varying looks as Mr Styles’ famous ‘do. Heart eyes

Which two piece do you have your eye on?
