8 Summer Outfits I Just Know Will Earn You Compliments

·2-min read

In just a few weeks, it'll officially be British summertime. Though, the glorious weather we've been experiencing across the country of late has already put us in the summer spirit. We're shedding our layers and ready to embrace the season with billowing linen, short hemlines, spaghetti-strap sleeves, pretty dresses and sandals that show off our recent salon pedicures. However, making the switch from spring to summer can be hard to wrap your head around. As such, we've found eight cute outfit ideas to provide you with all the inspiration you need to start the season in style.

These looks have been chosen as we believe they'll be easy to re-create with pieces you already own or, at the very least, require minimal new investment on your part. Of course, we'll serve up some shopping suggestions to help you fill any gaps you may have, but generally speaking, you should be able to channel these foolproof summer looks with your existing wares.

From the nostalgic miniskirt making a comeback and the glossy way to wear the floral dress hanging in your wardrobe to the simple-to-style co-ord and picnic-ready accessories, scroll below to see eight cute outfit ideas we love and can't wait to replicate.
