So girls say good bye to winter nights spent wrapped up in blankets, sipping on mugs of hot chocolate (as nice as that sounds!) and hello to sun, sand and hopefully not suspicious parents. If you haven’t already guessed, summer is my season. Why, you might ask? Is it the trips down to the beach? Not having to sweat over dissertations? No, it’s the fashion – obviously. Summer style is all about funky prints, fun materials and most importantly, fabulous selfies… Unfortunately, the best time of the year usually comes around when you’re most broke, typical. But fear not because I have answered your prayers (you can thank me later); below are my top 5 summer outfits for under £50, each is guaranteed to draw envy, second glances and swipes to the right!

Floral trousers and Lace up tunic top
What is the most beautiful part of summer – the flowers in full bloom of course! So why not rock them on your trousers for a loud and vibrant look? While I always detested learning about ancient Rome back in school; I have to admit when it came to fashion, in particular tunics, they had it going on! Match floral print trousers with a auburn tunic top and you have yourself the ultimate style recipe.
Floral trousers – £35
Lace up tunic top – £12
Grand total = £47!
Bralette and Culottes
Culottes are quite possibly my favourite trend of the year! Undoubtedly for me, the bold aesthetic is a refreshing detour from the tired and boring skinny jeans. Finally, leg wear can move away from the safe option and towards something more interesting and unorthodox. You can wear it alone or layer on top of it; either way Bralettes are fun, sexy and versatile. Combine culottes in crisp white with a bralette in a vibrant print and finish the look of with a pair of gladiator sandals.
Culottes – £29
Bralette – £19
Grand total = £48!
Crochet halter neck and Denim pedal pushers
You simply can’t find anything more retro and cool than pedal pushers, the undisputed hallmark of the swinging 60s. Yet, like a fine wine pedal pushers have only gotten better with age and I’m sure this summer will undoubtedly be the one you fall in love with them in. Sure crocheting is beloved by grannies everywhere; but thanks to this latest, modern and trendy twist everyone well below 60 will love them too.
