At last, summer is finally here! SS18 is upon us, and if you’re wondering what trends to invest in, you’ve come to the right place (hence the title). The catwalks saw a number of new trends for the summer, bum bags, co-ords, leopard print, etc., and many of these are set to carry on right into the winter months. But which of these are the most wearable and easy to find on the high street? Well, luckily for you, I’ve picked out some of my favourite pieces that I’ve been wearing non-stop and put together a little SS18 Style Guide. Sit down, Grab a cuppa and enjoy!

1. Gingham and Cowboy Boots33898781_1899617590105479_2686877178976534528_n33897376_1899617503438821_6319359380319895552_n

I call this my cowgirl look – if you thought you had seen the last of gingham in SS17, think again! The check pattern was seen at Mary Katrantzou in bold contrasting colours, in Mara Hoffman’s wide legged jumpsuit, and at Alexander Mcqueen in pretty pastel colours. I’ve opted for this Primark dress, which manages not to be overly “yee-haw” with it’s delicate flared cold-shoulder sleeves. Keep your eye out for a pair of cowboy boots for extra style points, these are going to be huge this summer! I love my pair from Primark that have cut-outs at the back, meaning they can still be worn in the warmer weather.

2. Button Detailing33990776_1899613116772593_6761729376741490688_n33920170_1899613130105925_972824613828427776_n

Top – New Look

I think it’s probably safe to say that you’ve probably already seen a fair few of these bad boys on the high street already, button detailing on everything from dresses and tops to skirts and trousers is huge for SS18. They give the perfect finish to a linen dress in a block colour, just like my dress pictured above from Primark!

3. Straw Bags33890802_1899618100105428_6240953438071422976_n

Meet my new best friend – the basket bag! You neeeeed one of these in your life! Although this one from Zara hasn’t proved to be of the most practical size, I love the leather detailing and I literally haven’t been able to leave the house without it lately. It just manages to make every single outfit that little bit more summery.

4. Retro Florals32705615_1884181708315734_1776291799522869248_n32511914_1884181551649083_5017289767650328576_n

Dress – H&M

Bag – Zara

Boots – Primark

Here’s the reason why retro florals are great – they’re pretty without being too delicate or subtle. Not that there’s anything wrong with delicate or subtle but, personally, I like my florals to be a little more kick-ass than that. Bright and powerful – these patterns do just the trick. Retro florals are back in full force for SS18, particularly in dreamy pastels. These are most easily styled in a dress, just like I’ve done here with this H&M shift dress.
