Summer is here and whether you’re soaking up the sun’s rays or dodging the raindrops, it’s time to inject a bit of fun and glamour into your wardrobe.

And there are plenty of stylish options to choose from – from laid-back vintage style and pretty prom dresses to vamped up feminine fifties fashion, both for on the beach and going out.

All in all it is unashamedly feminine and playful, with key trends including full skirts, crop tops, playsuits and cropped trousers – all teamed up with high platform peeptoes or strappy wedges – to give a real feel of British seaside fun.
