Show Your Style This Summer

Summer is drawing near (yes, I know it still feels like Christmas- who knew time could go so quickly?!) and everybody is scrabbling around the high street in search of some good summer buys. A new crop top here, the latest hotpants there- a girls wardrobe is never complete. Or is it?
Although everybody knows a woman can never have too many items of clothes- what's wrong with re-vamping last summers' clothes? I've got to admit I am one of those girls, only the new stuff will do for me. But I decided to challenge myself and come up with a variety of outfits using last summers' purchases. Here they are:
*Apologies if some of the pictures are one their sides!*

I started off with a mish-mash of patterned clothes, a few block colour items, long necklaces and a few pair of shoes. I had tops, shorts, skirts, dresses and trousers to work with, and this is what I got:

Outfit 1: Sailor Girl
I know that the sailor look is always going to be on trend in the summer month, so this anchor-print dress is  an investment piece. It looks best work casually with a pair of cropped white leggings and some simple flip-flops. 
All from last summer's wardrobe.

Outfit 2: Floral Beauty
Possibly my favorite outfit, this cute chiffon top looks divine with some simple white shorts and a tan coloured belt. As well as the sailor look, floral is always destined to be big in summer- so don't be afraid to spend that little bit more on gorgeous floral items.

Outfit 3: Cute and Girly
Yum. Yum. Yum. This feminine, innocent looking dress is a big hit for the summer. Wear it with nude flats and minimalistic jewelry for the full effect. This dress just screams summer and is idea for a cute meal out with the fam!

Outfit 4: Short and Sexy
Floral shorts are just amazing! Dress them up with a silky top and platforms or keep it casual with a cropped top and brogues. Accessorize with a floral necklace like pictured and a single bangle. Simple, short and sexy is the way forward!

Outfit 5: Trek in Trousers
Brown chino trousers are an ideal solution for a summer day shopping trip or day out with friends/family. Comfy, stylish and versatile- what's not to love about these trousers?!

Outfit 6: Starry Eyed
Showing that there is more than one way to wear these classic shorts, I've re-teamed them with a gorgeous starry blouse. Stars were VERY in last year, and are still very popular this season. So don't be afraid to dig out that starry top this summer!

What do you think of these outfits?! Have they inspired you to re-vamp your clothes from next summer?
