The sun is shining, the beaches are thronged and chilled rosé is flowing.
It can only mean one thing; high summer is here.
Up until now, there haven’t been many opportunities to enjoy everything warm-weather fashion has to offer, but the rising temperatures are finally giving us some options.
This time of year is all about denim shorts, crochet accessories and fabulous dresses.
It’s the season to have fun and enjoy oneself socially and sartorially.
So to help, we have chosen nine of the best summertime picks to invest in now.

Ideal for day and night (Picture: Urban Outfitters)
Go full Y2K with a mid-rise midi skirt. Surprisingly flattering, pair with a crop top for a complete throwback, but tuck an oversized shirt into the waist if you are looking for a more comfortable fit. High summer perfection.
