Summer Style… On A Budget!
Festival season is well and truly on its way and with it a slew of bright new pieces on the shelves. New shoes, new shorts, hats and bags… it can all add up, so we’ve been searching for the best places to shop online where you can update your summer wardrobe without blowing the budget.
Kate Bosworth’s stunning festival shoot for Topshop has inspired us all to try harder with our weekend style this year, even if we’re not hitting a festival. But with that resolution comes a commitment to spending half your wages on a couple of knockout items – not ideal. We trawled the web for a site that offers entire outfits at low prices and found Bonprix.co.uk, teeming with pretty pieces you won’t find on the high street. Here’s what we discovered…
From cutesy tea dresses to maxis and minis, we love the collection of affordable frocks on this website. A particular favourite is the Bouquet Print Tea Dress, perfect for a sunny walk in the park (fingers crossed) and a snip at £24.
Sadly, we all know no summer ensemble is complete without a chunky knit to throw on once the sun goes down – good ol’ Blighty can always be relied on to get rather chilly when the evening grows dark. To combat this, we’ve picked out this Open Knit Jumper, £27.99, in apple green – perfect if the weather can’t make its mind up when you’re trying to get dressed.
We’re in the grip of Great Gatsby fever at the moment and anything with a 1920’s hemline has our interest – particularly this beautiful oyster grey Scallop Hem Crochet Dress, £39.99.Channel your inner Carey Mulligan by teaming it with a pair of killer heels and a glitsy headband for a Gatsby-inspired Saturday night out.
Bold, geometric prints are huge this season, so our favourite piece has to be this Ikat T-shirt, perfect for throwing on over jeans before a lazy Sunday brunch or visiting your family. A great little number to round off the weekend, and at £12.99, we might just have to buy both colours…
A nifty little website with something for everyone, you can’t argue with the price of these products – shop around and you’ve got yourself a brand new weekend wardrobe for around £100. Happy shopping!
