Hello Sunshine! The best summer holiday shops...
So summer has officially arrived. The five day forecast on my iPhone says we can safely expect the sun to show its face for the next week or so, so I'm looking on the bright side and taking that as a green light for summer's official arrival. I am also blindly hoping that it will stick around until, say, September time? I think that's pretty reasonable.
This has a serious impact on our fashion selections over the next few months calling for immediate purchases, this minute updates and beach-style buys. Handily, many high-street retailers have curated their own holiday shop popping all their high summer must-haves all in one place. But which are the best ones to visit? We've curated our very own selection of the hottest holiday shops out there below, so if you're looking to invest at the moment, why not take a look at our hit list?
Everything your wardrobe needs for a stylish get away, Warehouse's holiday offering consists of six themes including Sun City, After Eight, Hand Luggage, Bright Lights, The Wanderer and Beach Comber. Here you can shop each look and get some ideas on cool outfit combinations.
The lovely people at Oasis have sorted their holiday shop into occasions; dress for day, dress for night and dress for flight (how clever?), which has lots of beautifully inspiring themes and showcases many SS12 essentials we're adding to our wish list.
One of our favourite beach dedicated online retailers (mainly because of the animal faces they layer over their model shots, no we're not joking, check it out), have launched a little pop-up shop named Sundae Girl filled with chic pastels.
