Coming out of lockdown, just what do you buy to cover your (limited) occasions this summer? Let’s face it, many events are still off the table. Large music festivals are out of the question, huge family weddings, dancing in clubs and even attending race day events is a no go. But there’s no denying, small invitations are starting to be sent out. Did you know, someone is booking a summer holiday every 11 seconds? So if you're headed to sunnier climes and want to prepare, read on. Or, whether you’re attending a friends’ small but select birthday party, a family celebration or just nipping to your favourite restaurant for a socially-distanced get-together, you’re going to need something to wear.

We’ve looked at six stand out items from our new summer collection. We think we’ve got some real winners for you to update your outfits.  Seen on stylish influencers, we think you’ll love our top picks of on trend dresses, tops and jumpsuits.
