With Trinity off to a flying start and the promise of Pimms right around the corner, here at PHASER we’re more than ready to amp up our summer wardrobes. This week we’ve compiled some of our favourite Spring/Summer picks from the high street. Let us know what you think below!
1. The Prom Skirt
Ball season is here, and alongside the usual array of gorgeous dresses, ASOS has presented us with a more unique option: the prom skirt. Effortlessly chic, versatile and screaming 50s, we can expect full skirts to make a comeback this Spring Summer.
2. The Ballerina Heels
Since when did it become acceptable to wear Disney Princess slippers in public?! Since now, apparently, and we’re not complaining. Lace up shoes are big this season, and we love the block heel and fluffy toe strap that this shoe boasts. Not for the feign-hearted, but almost guaranteed to turn heads.
3. The Floral Bag
What better way to spruce up a plain outfit than with a patterned bag? River Island combines classic monochrome florals with blush pink touches and gold-toned hardware to create a chic and sassy statement accessory.
4. The Embroidered Body
Another big SS17 trend, we can’t see embroidery going anywhere any time soon. We’ve seen it on handbags, jackets, shoes and now bodies! The detail on this Topshop number is exquisite, and we can envision it dressed down with mom jeans or smartened up with a high waisted skirt or pair of culottes.
5. The Pom Pom Trainers
Add a bit of fun and a pop of colour to your summer wardrobe with these fluffy trainers, which also come in white with neon pink pom poms.
