Life’s a Beach


Summer’s in full swing, the sun’s shining (for once),  people are jetting off left, right and centre and there’s not been a spot of rain in nearly 2 weeks!
Since the weather has been so dreamy, we’ve been inspired to put together the perfect beach-wear guide just for you.


Sun, sea and sarongs

If you weren’t blessed with skin that tans instead of burns then it’s important you have a beach cover up to hand just in case the sun gets a little too much.
We’ve had a look through Debenhams range of sarongs and kimonos to give you a little inspiration on how to style your swim wear with a stunning cover up. They have everything from light linen wraps to beautiful lace pieces.

Swim into style

You can’t go to the beach without the perfect swim wear so we’ve had a look in some of our favourite stores at their collections. Whether you’re a one piece kind of girl or prefer a sultry two piece, our broad selection of swimsuits will definitely complete your summer wardrobe.
Don’t worry boys, we haven’t forgot about you, we’ve found collection of swim shorts in H&M that will be perfect for all types of getaways, from family fun to lads holidays! Keep it simple with a solid colour or show off your personality with a bold and bright pattern, whatever your style, we know you’re going to love this range.

Tropical teasers

In our opinion, there’s one item of clothing that every lad needs when they go abroad and that’s a bright Hawaiian shirt!
There’s something about being on holiday that lets you push your style boundaries and nothing says that like one of these shirts from H&M, coming in at just £17.99.

Beach Bae-sics.

What does your beach towel say about you?
Whether you’re a self-confessed mermaid, Disney princess or Baywatch wannabe, then boy do we have the towel for you. We’ve had a little browse through Primark’s new range of beach towels and they have something that will radiate your personality to every sunbathing sally within a 5 mile radius.

 

Summer style? Sorted.


Summer is here! We may be seeing the odd bit of cold weather and rain but the sun has actually managed to make an appearance for more than a couple of hours, so it’s time to embrace the sunshine and hit the high street in the latest summer fashion. To give you a little helping hand, we’re going to be picking out some of our favourite looks from this season!

 

Sultry Swimwear

Whether you’re hitting the beaches of Marbella or just sunbathing in your back garden, we’ve found the perfect bikinis and swimsuits that will make you swoon. From triangle plain halter necks to bright patterned one pieces, there’s swimwear to suit everyone in our stores.

Dreamy Dresses

Strolling around the shops helped the little fashonista inside us run wild, we found dresses to suit everyone’s style!
From bright flowy numbers to 90’s styled denim, we couldn’t get enough of the endless collections our stores had to offer

 

Step into Summer

We don’t know about you but we think shoes can either make or break your outfit. So we’ve had a look around Schuh to find some seasonal must haves that will never ruin your style. They have everything a girl could ever need this summer from strappy sandals, peep toe heels to glitzy boots.

Get the glow.

When the sun’s bright and beaming, you want to make sure your highlight is too, so we’ve put together some of our favourite makeup products from our centre.
Whether you’re into a subtle sultry look or you prefer to be a glowing golden goddess, our stores will definitely be able to help you out. They have everything from foundation and highlight to give you a true summer glow, to setting sprays to keep you looking perfect throughout the day.
