Daytime dressing for the sunshine!

The sun is finally here, which has got us instantly hunting around in our wardrobes for some summer dressing inspiration. Summer dressing can be quite hard here in the UK, with the season being a short one and the weather changeable even throughout the day. So we find the key to getting a summer wardrobe that works for you is to buy versatile pieces that can be dressed up or down and mixed into your existing wardrobe. We also think it's so important to layer up, having a light layer available to you that goes with a whole host of outfits will be a summer saviour!

We've picked out some great daytime dressing inspiration for the sunny week ahead, choosing versatile pieces that can easily be layered up. We hope you enjoy taking a look!
