Bank holiday weekend is upon us, and we have a few extra days to bask in the early summer sunshine!
Now is the perfect time to get away for a weekend break, spend a day out with the family or even just kick back and do nothing! Whatever you have planned, we’ve got you covered for some brilliant fashion picks that will transport you through the end of spring into those endless summer days in style.
For the ladies:
This season, it’s all about making a statement. The catwalks have been full of bold primary colours, 80’s fashion throwbacks and eclectic mix-and-match ensembles.
If you fancy joining the vintage trend, this classy metallic silver wrap-skirt is a modern take on the 80s trend. Wear it with a sheer white blouse and wedge shoes for the perfect ‘first-BBQ-of-the-year’ outfit.
River Island has an amazing range of miniature handbags, ideal for drinks with the girls. This sequined bag is a gorgeous addition to any date outfit, or add a little modernistic glam with this glitzy wave-inspired bag- glitter never felt so chic.
If the clashy colours of the catwalk aren’t up your street, you’ll be pleased to know that the pretty silhouettes of tulle skirts, cold-shoulders dresses and mesh tops are not going anywhere. We love this sheer overlay dress, a floaty number that can be dressed up for romantic elegance or layered for a more rebellious take on the look.
For the gents, we’ve picked out some versatile items that are on-trend and will work for anything your weekend has in store.
The long weekend is the perfect time to catch up with friends, plan a date or spend the day with family. The shops are full of bold colours this month and this gold top could be a stylish and flexible addition to your wardrobe.
Chinos are making a bit of a comeback, pair a coloured shirt with these smart chinos for an outfit that radiates effortless style.
As the weather improves, slip-on shoes are a must for summer days in the garden or a weekend break in the city. These leather-look shoes are functional and will work with almost any outfit- ideal!
Girls will love the range of playful outfits in all our Frenchgate stores. We love this dungaree dress from H&M, it’s an adorable twist on the fashion staple we all remember growing up wearing, and brilliant for chilling in the garden with friends. This dress made us smile with the cheeky giraffe design and patterned skirt- perfect for any birthday parties!
Planning a day trip? Little fashionistas would love this funky backpack with its bright unicorns and rainbow patches!
Get the boys ready for summer with these fantastic brightly printed Hawaiian shirts, ideal for a day on the beach with a cool pair of shades! Wear them with these comfortable denim shorts in a camo pattern, stylish and a useful item as the days get warmer. To protect their eyes while playing in the sun, this great BB-8 style hat is so cool, they just won’t want to take it off!
