Our Fashion Editor’s Picks Of The Month

From high street accessories to lust-worthy new collections, SL’s Fashion Editor Charlotte Collins runs you through this month’s must-have, must-know and must-see fashion…



Jewellery with a summery twist is a must for glamorous beach trips, and French-Greek label Elise Tsikis create the perfect holiday accessories. Shell designs have been a fast fashion girl hit.


THE ACCESSORY: Mango Laser-Cut Design Bag

Latticed, caged designs are this season’s version of summer 2017’s ubiquitous basket bags. This black Mango design has a city slant and holiday appeal in one.

THE DESIGNER: Johanna Ortiz

Columbian designer Johanna Ortiz has made waves with exotic, feminine designs, and this season’s crop of statement ruffled skirts and wearable dresses are seriously aspirational.

THE SHOES: Topshop Strappy Sandals

Another Topshop must-have, this time to up your summer footwear game. Square toe, block heel sandals are a designer favourite this season, but Topshop will help you get the look for considerably less.

Romantic, frilly designs from Turkish label Gul Hurgel have long been wooing fashion girls, but £700 price tags can be a deterrent. Luckily, the brand has just launched on luxury discount site The Outnet – sign up for updates to nab your favourites.



THE SUMMER DRESS: Sézane Assia Dress

French label Sezane is a hero for summer offerings, and this broderie dress in multiple shades is a must for stylish holiday days.

THE MAXI: Topshop Spot Floral Bead Maxi Dress

Topshop is an annual hero for occasion-ready dresses, and this year is no exception. This languid maxi design in pretty blues and oranges is perfect for summer events, but still ticks the off-duty box too – I’ll be adding trainers and an oversized denim jacket.

THE TREND: Square Necklines

Part vintage pin-up, part prairie girl, the square neckline trend has officially taken off thanks to romantic Aussie brands and boho US labels. Turn to Free People to get the look.

THE TROUSERS: Zara Wide-Leg Trousers

So lust-worthy that I signed up for email updates and searched for them in Spain, these silky Zara trousers are my ultimate summer must-have. Now they’re finally mine, I’ll be pairing with pinks and purples for a clashing look that works.
