Fashion: Summer essentials

Posted on: 31 March 2011 by Rhian Mainwaring

We outline this season's must-have items from online retailer to freshen up last year’s wardrobe.

Pick from this season's key trends to update your wardrobe ready for the summer. Team old jeans with lace tops, or wear last year's gladiator sandals with a tribal influenced dress. For a wardrobe full of tops refresh it with some hot white trousers, or invest in some safari inspired items to add an androgynous feel to your summer 2011 wardrobe! You’ll be sure to find some perfect updates from the Savoir at isme collection, which is designed to help women dress well and feel fashion confident, no matter what their age.


pink lace topTrend: Lace

Lace is a key trend for this spring/summer and will continue to be popular through autumn and early winter months, so investing early is a great idea. We love this long line top from isme, the bright pink and statement neckline are perfect for a summer's day and would make Christopher Kane proud, while the long sleeves and full length are very flattering on the figure.

Pink lace top, £20 from


TribalTrend: Tribal

Perfect for summer holidays and a long-standing summer trend, tribal prints are great with darker skin tones or a tan, and can be accessorised easily with leather sandals and wooden bangles. This dress is perfect day wear, but equally suitable for a sunny evening out with some wooden wedges and sunkissed skin.

Tribal dress, £28 from Safari

This trend will keep cropping up, but this year you won’t be able to escape it. That is a good thing though as the safari trend is so easy to wear. Combat trousers, metal buttons, clasp and clip detailing or anything in the khaki/nude family work great together. It’s best not to dress head to toe in this trend, otherwise you’ll end up looking like you took a wrong turn on your way to Kenya. These loose combat trousers would look great with slim fitting crisp white shirts or casual t-shirts.. Team with wedges for that bond girl look!

Safari inspired trousers, £18 from


TrousersTrend: Bright white

Not one for the mucky fingered among us, but this summer nothing will say chic like bright white. There’s still a nautical influence from last summer hanging around, which means that these wide white sailor trousers are perfect.  Team with a Bretton t-shirt for a great day look or add the matching blazer for a super smart evening outift. This style is great for a ladies' day at the races or a regatta, with big shades and a statement head piece.
