Hurrrahhh! The sun has arrived and it is glorious! But the question is, after all this time what do we wear? We're frantically digging through the depths of our wardrobes to find our summer outfits and kissing farewell to those woolly jumpers. But if your lighter clothes need a bit of a refresh, we thought we'd help out by pulling together our favourite summer edit for summer 2021 - all you need to do is add sunscreen!
Made the Edit have you covered summer shoes and summer sandals, sunglasses and handbags. Plus we've picked out a couple of beautiful pieces from some of our favourite brands. Read on and tell us which is your favourite look.
Sliders, denim and a floaty top
The Edit: Shorts: Flannels, £85. Sunglasses: Made The Edit Spektre Frida Tortoiseshell, £140. Bag: Made The Edit Luxe Designers Sophia Baby Pink Tassel Bag, £119. Blouse: Selfridges, £89. Sliders: Made The Edit Python Sliders, £49.
A perfect blend of comfort and style. Sliders are a must have this season; need to run after the postman? Throw on your sliders. Trip to the beach? Throw on your sliders. Dinner with the hubby? Throw on your sliders! They're comfier and more stylish than a flip flop, but with the same slide on benefits. These are made with gorgeously soft leather and the soft rubber soles make them an easy pair to wear in the home too.
We've paired them with a gorgeous pair of denim shorts as these literally go with anything! And we love this floaty white blouse from Selfridges. It's finished off with a pair of sunnies (essential right now) and the Sophia bag; a beautiful cross-body bag is compact yet roomy to carry all your essentials - phone, purse, lippy and more.
Pumps and playsuit
The Edit: Playsuit: Net A Porter, £550. Handbag: Made The Edit, Luxe Designers Warm Nude Envelope crossbody bag, £145. Sunglasses: Made The Edit, Spektre Bellucci Pink & Tobacco, £145. Ballet pumps: Made The Edit, Spelta Nicole pink quilted pumps, £160.
In case you missed it we recently launched a beautiful exclusive edit of ballet pumps from Spelta Milano.Each pump is handcrafted by experts in the family workshop with the highest quality Italian fabrics and leather. The materials and method used resulted in an unmatched softness with remarkable durability… put the plasters away as they won’t be needed!
Styled with a stunning playsuit and pink accessories, this look is perfect for hitting the shops in comfort. Just be sure to plan an extra five minutes if you need the toilet - but playsuits are totally worth it!
Beautiful in blue and espadrilles
The edit: Skirt: Net A Porter, £215. T shirt: Yunion T, £45. Sunglasses: Made The Edit, Spektre Bellucci Crystal Blue, £145. Handbag: Made The Edit, Luxe Designers Sophia Blue Tassel Bag, £119. Shoes: Made The Edit, Pimaz Rafia Cream Wedge, £100.
Rafia is a simple and sophisticated take on the wedge. With an open backed, buckle ankle strap and delicate details, it's style and comfort in a nutshell.
We think this shade of blue is so pretty - exactly like the clear blue sky we're experiencing right now. You can't go wrong with a floaty midi skirt and soft, comfy tee. Finished with matching blue accessories it's a look perfect for walks and picnics in the park.
The edit: Dress: Harvey Nichols, £555. Handbag: Made The Edit, Luxe Designers Sophia pink tassel bag, £119. Sunglasses: Made The Edit, Spektre Metro-2 Gold Havana & Tobacco, £160. Sandals: Made The Edit Rose Beige, £139.
Everyone needs THE dress. That one dress that is your go to no matter the occasion and can be dressed up or down. We're obsessed with this beautiful Harvey Nichols dress and have styled it with Rose in beige. This Italian handmade sandal equally can take you effortlessly from day to night. And in case you decide against a dress, it will go with anything else! The Rose sandal is a simple silhouette that looks very pretty on.
Can we just talk about the sunglasses for a moment? This is such an iconic style - perfect for shopping or a party in the garden. Electric and flexible, this model comes with embellished silicone nosepads that are so comfortable. We love the tobacco gradient print.
