To help you on your hunt for a brand-new look, we’ve found some key wardrobe staples that won’t break the bank.

Casual Daytime Outfits Under £200

When it comes to your everyday summer essentials, create a capsule wardrobe. Invest in a few key trend pieces and mix them with items you already own to give endless new outfits. Look for linen and cotton fabrics, floral and stripe prints, and summer basics such as shorts, floaty dresses, playsuits, and neutral tops. Pair them with chunky sandals and a basket bag for elevated summer looks to keep reaching for.

Whether you're attending a wedding, a christening, or the races, finding the perfect outfit can be an expensive challenge, but you can always stand out without breaking the bank.

Holiday Outfits Under £200

Fill your suitcase with pieces you can mix and match. Re-wearable pieces are needed for limited suitcase space, such as lightweight dresses that are great for the beach, ideal for sightseeing, and for evenings out. Co-ords are also a summer essential, as you can wear the pieces together for a coordinating look, then separately with summer basics for a more casual approach.

Workwear Under £200

When it comes to workwear there’s an assumption that it must be expensive to invest in high quality, office appropriate tailoring. Classic styles and neutral tones are versatile and easy to style and re-wear at more events than morning meetings. Transform your summer workwear with statement blouses that can be paired with skirts, tailored shorts, or trousers. A classic blazer is the ideal investment piece as it can be worn over almost anything, from strappy summer dresses to tailored separates - then over jeans and a bodysuit on an evening. Don’t forget a structured dress or shift dress that you can easily throw on and be instantly filled with boardroom ready confidence.

Beachwear Under £200

Whether catching rays by the pool or relaxing at the beach, investing in high quality swim and beachwear is a holiday essential. Look for statement swimwear with embroidered details or versatile cuts and styles. Opt for timeless colours like jewel tones to show off your tan, or flattering darker colours such as black and navy. A breezy kaftan or sundress can serve as a stylish cover-up or casual dress for exploring markets and an alfresco lunch.
