Summer dressing – five new looks to try now

Feeling stuck for fashion inspiration this season? Here are five new looks to try now thanks to Courtyard in Guildford. Let's go shopping!

Summer has been showing her happy face, which means it’s time to ditch the jeans and jacket combo and embrace new season style. But the long months of winter have left you with a shortfall in summer dressing inspiration, we’ve put together a handy guide featuring five fabulous looks – from feminine florals to tonal dressing – all available at the gorgeous Courtyard boutique in Guildford.



If there’s one thing that says new season fashion it’s floral prints. Blooms and blossoms were all over the SS19 catwalks – and now’s the perfect time to wear them. We love this Seventy Flowery Meadow Skirt (£175) with it’s beautiful bold print and chic blue trim. Team with the Seventy Blush Blouse (£189) and this Tissa Fonteneda Party Bag (£365), handcrafted using the finest, velvety soft nappa bubble lambskin, and you’re good to go.


Nothing says summer quite like a maxi dress, and this keffiyeh-inspired print Rosa dress (£215) in fresh blue cotton by Cecilie Copenhagen will keep you cool and stylish. Just add sunglasses like these unisex Taylor Morris Rollright Sunglasses (£169), Ilse Jacobsen Faith sandals (£59) and a straw shoulder bag (available in store).


The easiest way to look polished and pulled together this season is keep it simple with tonal dressing – that means layering multiple shades of the same colour from head to toe. For an effortlessly chic look go all white – we’re loving this white Luisa Cerano Oversized Shirt (£249) with white Riani High Waisted Shorts (£185)  and white trainers (available in store). The contrasting Campomaggi Studded Cross Body Bag (£275) and smart watch (available in store) are the perfect accessories.


Take a walk on the wild side in this fabulous Leopardess Long Shirt Dress from Hayley Menzies (£415). Keep it understated and casual with white trainers, Taylor Morris Rollright Sunglasses (£169) and big earrings.


The perfect balance between sporty and smart – this look is cool and casual with an added edge. Beige is big this season, so we’re loving these Luisa Cerano Sporty High Stretch Trousers (£199) with a crisp white Luisa Cerano Sleeveless Top (£159). Sunnies like these Taylor Morris Raleigh Sunglasses (£159) and trainers finish the outfit perfectly.
