From shirts to sneakers and everything in between, this is what the Stylist fashion team is adding to its basket this week.
When it comes to knowing what to buy and when to buy it, few are better advisers than a team whose very job it is to know what’s hot and where to get it from.
For the time-poor among us, there just aren’t enough hours in the day to scour the virtual shelves for the best new-in items or most in-demand pieces of the season. Whether it’s a showstopping frock for a summer wedding or an upgraded pair of trainers, we are always in need of a recommendation from the style experts we know and trust.
Which is precisely why Stylist’s fashion team has compiled a go-to list of everything we’re adding to our baskets for the sunny season.
From statement jewellery that will instantly elevate any outfit to summer dresses that require minimal styling, these are the pieces that Team Stylist is adding to its basket this month.

Geox Bleyze Woman
Geox might be best known for its breathable trainers, but I raise you a pair of its equally breathable loafers. I’ve been wearing mine with fitted preppy minidresses and my hair neat and Blair Waldorf-esque.
Calzedonia Crochet Skirt
It’s time for The Big Melt, which means one thing and one thing only: crochet. I can’t wait to whip this mini out on the beach – or, perhaps more likely, by the local lido – with a white tank top and a chunky pair of sandals.
Vuori Volley Dress
OK, I may not be winning in straight sets in my tennis games, but I will be in the style stakes when I pair this crisp dress with a pair of XXL shades and a basket bag for sunny day strolls.
Feisedy Vintage Square Cat Eye Sunglasses
It seems like I have more sunglasses than I do of anything else at this point, but I’ve been lacking a pair of forever black frames for a while now. I’m grateful, then, to Feisedy, which has made the cat eye-esque sunnies of dreams, so I can finally complete my collection.

Furla Crossbody Mini Toni Talco
I love a white bag – especially for summer – and the added colour and texture of this one will add pop to my pared-down monochrome summer dresses.
Vuori Daily Bra
It might be summer and time to slob out on the lounger, but I am still determined to keep up some level of fitness. Loving the new ultraviolet colourway from cult US brand Vuori – it’s definitely going in the packing case.
Reformation Belgium Linen Dress
This dress from Reformation is actual perfection. The cut is kind to my fuller figure, hitting me in all the right places, plus the thigh slash gives great heat relief. I’m going to get one in every colour.
Daphine Kaia Earrings
It’s great to add a single pair of earrings to the packing list. I’m going with these Kaia earrings from Daphine. They will elevate the humblest of sarongs in time for the evening sundowner.

H&M Voluminous Satin Dress
Nothing beats an oversized dress in the summer sun. Effortless and cooling, H&M’s zingy orange number is the perfect throw-on piece for day or night.
Missoma Molten Baroque Pearl Twisted Chain Bracelet
I’m adding Missoma’s chunky gold and pearl bracelet to my stack for an instant touch of glamour. Even a white T-shirt and jeans will look dressed up with this piece.
Asics Gel-1090v2 Suede and Mesh Trainers
Pair these chunky trainers with your floral dresses this summer to toughen up the look (and go easy on your feet).
Marks & Spencer Pure Linen Oversized Shirt
Make M&S’s relaxed linen shirt work hard in your wardrobe by doubling it up as a swimwear cover-up. Beach days never looked so chic.
Polly Knight, style director
Reiss Wool Blend Waistcoat
I’m currently obsessed with getting my hands on a black waistcoat – I’d wear this one with denim cut-offs and Birkenstocks by day and tailored trousers and heeled mules come evening.
River Island Zebra High-Waisted Jeans
I’ve parked my leopard-print this season for zebra; it’s the monochrome dresser’s print of choice.
Mango Raffia Tote Bag
Laptop bag, but make it summer. This season, instead of my usual black leather oversized tote, I’ve been using a basket bag, bringing a little bit of summertime to my workwear wardrobe.
Vehla Eyewear Dixie Sunglasses
These yellow-lens sunnies have been on my wishlist for a while. Choosing light lenses means they easily take you from summer through to sunny winter days in style.
