From our favourite summer staples to achieving that effortless ‘hot girl summer’ glow, we’ve got you covered. We’ve rounded up some of our favourite summer must-haves so you can put your best-tanned foot forward this summer.


Influencer Inspiration 


If there’s one thing we love about summer it’s the clothes. Is there a better mood booster than a cute ‘fit on a sunny summer’s day? Whether you’re searching for the perfect look for your next outing on St Mary Street, or you’re in need of some serious holiday outfit inspiration, we’ve compiled a list of some of our favourite summer staples! The denim maxi skirt has made a return, and we are here for it! Dress up or dress down, grunge or girly, these versatile pieces are a must-buy this summer. The feather sequin combo – It wouldn’t be summer without mention of the rise of Harry Styles fashion, and yes we’re still finding rogue feathers too! Sequins, sequins and more sequins swept Cardiff when the HSLOT tour hit the Principality Stadium, and we were totally obsessed.



Summer Swimwear


Combining comfort, style and support is never an easy task but we’ve been so impressed with the ranges of swimwear we’ve seen across Cardiff’s high street. Barry-based fashion influencer, @sostylishsoph nailed the summer swimwear brief over on her IG where she shared swimwear fits for every occasion, from bride-to-be looks to pool party chic! Finally, how could we talk about summer trends without giving mention to the girl of the hour… Barbie! With the launch of the new Barbie movie at the end of July, we’re obsessing over all things pink, pink and pink. Did you notice Cardiff Primark’s Barbie display? We, of course, had to pop in and get our hands on some ‘fits Barbie would be proud of.
