Key Pieces in My Wardrobe for SS18

We’ve just had a taste of a little heatwave here in the UK which has got us all crossing our fingers for more of that weather to come in the next few months.

It’s been so nice to break out some more summery pieces of the last few days and I decided to make the switch and pack my winter clothes away and fill my wardrobe and drawers with more spring/summer items.

I thought I’d share with your some key pieces that I think I’ll be getting plenty of wear out of if the weather is kind to us over the next few months.

Denim Mini Skirts – Topshop

Everyone went crazy for these little denim skirts from Topshop last year and I’ve seen a lot of people sporting them through the winter and again now the weather has warmed up a little and I know that I’ll be wearing mine throughout the summer.

I have the black and the blue and I find them really comfortable. The perfect for styling up or dressing down dependent on the occasion and they kind of work like a blank canvas for you to create whatever type of look you fancy.

Black Midi Dress – Primark

Primark is one of my favourite places to get summer dresses from as they’re so cheap and also perfectly on trend but one of my favourites is actually from last year.

Just a plain and simple black bodycon style midi dress, I wear this for work in the warmer weather as it is an appropriate length, super comfortable and easy to smarten up.

Another piece that can be warm smart or causal, for a few pounds, these dresses from Primark are an essential.

Floral Playsuit – Topshop

Another piece from last year that I intend to break our whenever I possibly can this year, this floral playsuit from Topshop was a favourite from my holiday wardrobe last year.

It’s one of those items that just fits perfectly in every area, making it such a comfortable and flattering piece to wear.

I normally wear this with sandals but you could pair it with Converse or heels and it would still look great but the nice thing about this is that the pattern does all the hard work for you, so you don’t need to worry about accessorising.

Monochrome Wrap Dress – Motel Rocks

I bought this little spotted wrap dress last year after seeing Amber Davis from Love Island wearing it and I just love it.

It’s a totally different fit and style to my usual dresses but it’s super comfortable and flattering and can be styled in so many different ways for different occasions.

The dress is a perfect item for me in Summer as it is still black and white but a more summery style which is exactly what I like in warmer weather opposed to lots of bright colour.

Wide Leg Floral Trousers – Miss Selfridge

I love patterned trousers in the summer and I’m hoping to get the chance to sport these floral wide legged trousers from Miss Selfridge again this year.

A perfect option for when the weather is bright and dry but not quite warm enough for bare legs, the floral pattern on these trousers make them perfect from spring onwards but the black backgrounds makes them super easy to style.

I pair with a plain black top and black shoes normally to let the pattern on the trousers do the talking.

I hope you’ve found this useful if you’re looking to update your wardrobe for the warmer weather or looking for inspiration as to pieces you can dig out and rewear without spending a penny.

All these items I purchased last year but I’ve linked to them where possible or linked to a super similar item if they’re not available!
