It’s Aisling here, so excited to be writing my first ever post for the blog. Today’s post will include some of my top summer outfit picks at the moment from my favourite brands including New Look, Zara and Bershka. These are all items that I bought recently and I’ll pop links to purchase underneath for any of you that may be interested in recreating these looks. All super affordable yet right on trend. I had so much fun shooting these looks, and even managed to get some nice pictures despite having to dodge the rainy showers.
First up we have a really casual number from Bershka. What caught my attention about this jumper was the distressed detailing and its over-sized fit, which are both bang on trend this season. If you’d have told me a year ago I’d be buying clothes with holes already in them, I’d have laughed. But nevertheless, here we are and honestly I am loving them. Teamed with a pair of black leggings and espadrilles it’s both comfy and stylish.
The jumper was a really affordable €15.99. Available HERE.
Espadrilles €14.99 from New Look. Available HERE.
Up next we have another casual look. The bright blue denim and white crop tee are perfect for summer, teamed with a really cute metallic sandal. I absolutely adore the frayed detailing at the end of these jeans, along with the ripped knees- a trend which seems to be sticking around for yet another season and one I personally love. Paired with some sunnies, this look is perfect for a sunny day. This whole outfit is available from New Look.
Cropped tee reduced to €9.74! Available HERE.
Denim Jeans €34.99. Available HERE.
Metallic Sandals €24.99. Available HERE.
Oversized sunglasses €11.99. Available HERE.
Next up is one of my favourite outfits. These culotte trousers from Zara are a wardrobe staple and can be worn dressy or casual. They actually have slight dogtooth pattern which isn’t captured so well in the picture. I chose to go for a casual look today by pairing them with a yellow tee from Bershka and some classic red Vans. Slogan tees are so popular right now and this one is especially cute with the saying ‘babe I love you berry much.’
Trousers €19.99. Available HERE.
Slogan T-Shirt €4.99. Available HERE.
Vans €59.00. Available HERE.
For look number four I went for something a little more dressy. This top is absolutely stunning on and features gorgeous bell sleeves which are all the rage right now. Super flattering with pair of dark grey frayed denims, I love it! In keeping with the metallic trend I paired this with a rose gold and silver sandal but these will definitely be swapped for heels on my next night out.
Bardot top- Blue Vanilla €26.00. Not online but I picked mine up from New Look Liffey Valley. Blue Vanilla is also available in Debenhams.
Frayed Denim Jeans- €29.99. New Look.
Rose gold slider sandals- €25.00. Available HERE.
Last but definitely not least is this look, again all from New Look. I adore these super ripped black jeans, which I paired with a fab pale pink blouse and cropped suede biker jacket. The embroidered detail on the shirt is gorgeous and is definitely another hot trend at the minute. I chose another pair of sandals for this look, but again this is definitely something you could dress up with a pair of heels for a night out.
Cropped Biker Jacket €49.99. Available HERE.
Extreme Ripped Jeans €34.99. Available HERE.
Embroidered Pink Blouse €29.99. Doesn’t seem to be available online but I picked mine up from New Look Liffey Valley.
Sandals €24.99. Available HERE.
That’s it from me for now guys! Hope you enjoyed these looks and I can’t wait to put some more together for you very soon. Me and Amy have lots of exciting content planned for you all and we can’t wait to show you.
