Dressing for the summer heat isn’t easy. However, adding a few key pieces into your wardrobe can make it a whole lot easier. In today’s post I’ll be sharing 3 different summer heatwave-appropriate outfits using 1 key piece – a white skirt. And all 3 outfits cost just £20 altogether!
HOW IS THIS EVEN POSSIBLE!? I hear you ask… Well, I recently discovered a gem of a website called BlackBetty who sell high street clothes at huge discounts at 70-90% off. New items are added everyday, and although you don’t find out what brands you’re buying until you receive the items, you’re guaranteed great quality at super low prices. The items I received are from high street brands Reserved and Mojito and the quality of all the items I got feels great.
You can also get a further 20% off by using the code BIRD20 at checkout.
Outfit 1: Shopping Outfit
My first outfit consists of this bright pink sleeveless shirt from Reserved, paired with the white skirt I’ll be wearing throughout this whole post, also from Reserved. I think this would make a perfect outfit to go out shopping on a hot summer day. Reserved is a European high street fashion store and although I’d never owned anything from the brand before, I’ll definitely be checking it out in the future as I love the style and quality of these pieces. The pink shirt feels really light and breezy, yet it still looks smart. The skirt is really comfortable and even though it’s a summer-perfect white shade, it’s not see-through which is a sure sign of its good quality.
Outfit 2: Smart-Casual Days Outfit
Casual dressing in the summer heat can be hard enough, but dressing smart is on a whole other level! For this outfit, I teamed my trusty white skirt with this smart-looking turquoise shirt from Reserved that would be great for wearing to the office or work meetings. I love the front collar detailing and the colours pretty much scream SUMMER. Add a pair of nude coloured heels and you’re ready to sieze the day – no matter how hot it may be!
Outfit 3: Summer Evening Out
The great thing about this white skirt is that it’s so versatile and it can literally take you from day to night. For my summer evening outfit, I decided to pair it with this tropical palm trees shirt from Mojito. I tied it up at the waist and rolled up the sleeves for a more summery look. A shirt like this is great for evenings, as the short sleeves can be unrolled into long sleeves and the shirt can be tucked into the skirt when it gets a little chilly!
