6 Trending Pieces to Add to Your Summer Wardrobe


All good shoppers know that you have to be strategic sometimes, opting for versatile pieces that will do the most for your wardrobe. Splurging on a high-quality bag or of-the-moment brand every so often is a foolproof way of keeping your style fresh without going on a massive spree. Here are six trending pieces from some of our favourite brands that you should pull into your summer outfit rotation ASAP.

Guess purse
We couldn't live without a cute bag this season, especially when we have a jam-packed social calendar. Guess is one of our favourite purse brands, and this cinnamon-coloured piece does not disappoint, with its textured exterior and sleek gold chain. Stow your sunglasses, lipstick, current book of choice, and a bottle of water in this trusty companion – and look great doing it.

Ralph Lauren scarf
If your outfit is feeling a little lacklustre, take note: this summer, all the coolest girls are sporting a scarf or bandana around their neck. The scarf can be knotted, tucked, or worn over a necklace to dress it up. This Ralph Lauren option is chic in either white or black; tie it around your wrist for another way to wear the trend.

Browns mules
Because what else are you going to wear to all those brunches and summer baby showers? Resist the urge to wear your flip flops, and go for something a little more sophisticated. Not only will you feel amazing, but these soft pink mules are sure to be the talk of your next daytime party.

Levi’s jean shorts
Okay, serious question. When was the last time you bought a quality pair of jean shorts? We tend to wear the same pair year after year… regardless of how much tighter they seem to get. But this season, it's time to invest in a go-to perfect fit that you can wear for any occasion – and lucky for us, a trusty pair of Levi’s has never been more on-point. Throw on a slogan tee and you're good to go!

Gemstone jewellery
As far as we’re concerned, you can never have too many necklaces in your collection. We love wearing gold when we have a tan, and these dainty pieces are just begging to be worn out on our next patio date. Gemstones and crystals are having a major moment right now, and raw, delicate settings really allow the stones to shine.

Adidas runners
In case you were wondering (okay, maybe you weren’t...), the athleisure look still shows no signs of stopping. This Adidas style is right on trend with a low-profile sole and mesh shell, making the pair sporty, but understated enough for day-to-day. Need a bit of motivation to get moving in these bad boys?
