Summer’s on its way (we promise) and like you we are ready to retire the jumpers and boots for good! But what to wear now the temperatures are finally on the increase? It can be tricky to know where to start with summer fashion – and what looks good.

And for many of us we turn to social media for a little help and inspiration! So we did just that and caught up with two of our favourite stylish Staffordshire Instagrammers to share with us their top picks for the summer season.

Kerri-Ann Hargreaves aka @thekaedit

Kerri-Ann Hargreaves is from Newcastle-under-Lyme, and blogs about family and fashion while also running her own business. She has more than 10,000 followers on Instagram, where she is known as @thekaedit.

She says: “I adore the summer time, but it can be easy to be swept up in buying a new wardrobe as each season arrives. So I thought I would share three pieces that I’ll be wearing this summer. Ones that will take me through to autumn and winter.”

1. A floral midi-dress

 “I wear it with trainers or sandals for a fuss free finish,” she says. “I love adding a pop of colour to my wardrobe in summertime. This is my all-time favourite style for the summer. Feminine, fresh and fun.”

2. The jumpsuit

“A jumpsuit – every girl needs one in their wardrobe. Great for a day out with the family. Such a versatile piece as you could easily dress it up with a heel. I tend to stick to black and add colour in my accessories. They’re so comfortable and perfect for just throwing on.”

3. The 90s’ slip dress

“There’s been a ‘90s revival over the past year or so, so I had to include a slip dress. Such a great item to have in your wardrobe. In the summer month’s I’ll wear mine with sandals and a denim jacket, in Spring/Autumn – worn with a tee and Chelsea boots and a big cosy knit in the Winter. It’s all about layering.”

4. Hair accessories 

She says hair accessories are her go-to for summer 2019.

“I’ve already started to wear headbands a lot more and hair clips, like the pearl and diamante word slides. I don’t think they are going anywhere soon,” she says.

5. Denim dress 

“I’m on the hunt for the perfect denim dress. I have a distressed denim that will no doubt be out again but I’m looking for a more classic fitted one too.”
