Summer Tops

There’s one item that will guarantee an instant summery look –  a bright and bold new top!

Eye-catching and packed with an extra fashion oomph, a new summery top will instantly update your look and get you out of wintery darks. Yes, it’s time to banish those grey knits and boring white shirts, shake it up and choose a bold hue or interesting print.

Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean you have to expose your arms in flimsy and strappy tops. This season it’s all about sleeves – the bigger and bolder the better.

Push your fashion boundries and dare to wear an over-sized statement sleeve, like this top from Anthropologie for £88. Not that brave? An amazing lace sleeve will provide all of the coverage you need, while still revealing some skin letting you feel a bit cooler.

And finally, if you’re not worried about showing off your arms, we’ve also thrown in some strappy tops that are the perfect mix of stylish and sophiscated. Meaning you can also wear them for work, rather than just for holiday.
