Summer Styling – Part One

With summer fast approaching, we have been looking to the high street for inspiration on what to wear and how to wear it and selecting some of our favourite key trends for the summer months.

Whether you’re heading to one of the many festivals on offer this summer, looking for an outfit to party the night away or just want to look your best on the beach, we have put together some summer inspired looks from The Clothes Line range for you to enjoy.


The great thing about festivals is…. anything goes. Sandals on your first day, wellies on your next…..

You need a versatile outfit come rain or shine and it needs to look effortlessly chic (even if in reality it has taken you over a week to decide what to wear!)

D&G Silk Blouse, Size M/L, £60 – Boden Camisole, Size 14, £6 – Warehouse Denim Shorts, Size 14, £6 – Think Leather Ankle Boots, Size 3.5, £40 – Beaded Necklace £6.


A capsule suitcase is a must whether its a vacation or a staycation you’re having this summer.

You need outfits that are going to work from day to night by simply added a layer or changing your shoes. Items need to be lightweight and easily packed into your bag – shorts and lace tops would definately be ticking all the right boxes.

Shorts, yet again are a must this season whether they be denim hotpants, structured culottes or the trending skort style, there will be a pair of shorts for you.

Blazers are a must have item to take us from spring into summer, versatile for work and for days/nights out.

Oversized & boxy or fitted & sleek, worn with jeans or a pretty cotton dress, there’s not much that can go wrong!
