King (or should that be Queen?) or pared-back, super-luxe minimalism, Cos once again reigns supreme. I'm especially loving this mesh jacket, which is a great way to rock the sports-luxe trend, without looking like you've stepped out of an 80s music video or the gym.

ASOS is the perfect destination for summer dresses, and I'm loving this canary yellow midi dress. It's ideal for adding a pop of colour to your wardrobe, and who can resist a smile when they're wearing a dress the colour of the sun?

I love the geo print on this dress and reckon it would work just as well in the office as it would with a pair of flat sandals. And we all like a multi-tasking dress, right?!

Warehouse have got that tricky aquatic, mermaid trend nailed with this sequin disc skirt. Just team it with a plain tee and sandals for a laid-back, cool look, or spruce up your tee with a pair of courts for a night out with the girls.

Sequin skirt, £48


This simple summer dress is the perfect shade of orange sherbet. Its clean, simple lines and nipped-in waist mean that it will flatter most figures, while the colour will pep up most wardrobes...

Contrast dress, £22.99

If you're not convinced by brights, this smudge-print pencil skirt is perfect for you - just rock with pencil-thin courts and a loose tee!
