1. The wedding season winner
In-your-face painkiller pink is the colour of the summer according to our Designer Director, Jakki Pay. We agree. This do-it-all dress is perfect for summer weddings - the ruffles add just enough romance.
Keepsake, Strappy Tiered Frill Midi Dress, Was £125 now £87.50
2. The luxe low top
With an on-trend bandage design and a bit of subtle sparkle, the Java passes the Boxfit-to-brunch test with flying colours. Just the 'shoe-drobe' update we were after.
CARVELA, JAVA TRAINERS, WAS £69 NOW £39.00
3. The summer home upgrade
We've long sung the praises of statement lighting's power to transform a room. With an airy wooden frame and curves in all the right places, this ceiling pendant is our pick for an instant summer refresh.
Gray & Willow, Kiruna Wood Ceiling Light, Was £150 now £105
4. The do-it-all palette
Those with limited handbag space, rejoice - the new space-saving Backtalk palette is here. With eight satiny eyeshadows on one side and four complementing blush and highlighter shades on the other, we can't remember why we ever tolerated a handful of beauty sets.
Urban Decay, Backtalk Palette, Was £39.50, now £35.55 applied at checkout
5. The work-to-weekend shirt
It's official - cult Danish brand Lollys Laundry are our new Scandi crush. When florals feel too fussy, we'll be opting for the on-trend leaf print of this sunshine yellow blouse.
Lollys Laundry, Yellow Long Sleeve Floral Blouse, was £70 now £49
6. The stylish swim short
Colour block, geo print or photographic, there's a swim short for everyone this summer. We'll be wearing this do-it-all drawstring pair and pretending we're in Miami (we're actually in Margate).
Label Lab, Miami Photo Print Swim Shorts, was £30 now £18
7. The kitchen hero
You can't go wrong with Le Creuset cookware - hello, lifetime guarantee - and we reckon the shallow casserole dish might be the most versatile piece. Plus, in this Marseille blue shade, it's pretty enough for the table.
Le Creuset, 26cm Signature Shallow Casserole, Was £189 now £151.20
8. The no-fuss sundress
Everyone needs a denim dress for those 'it's suddenly sweltering' afternoons, and this simple tunic shape is universally flattering. Throw it on for days spent in the garden or wear on holiday with wedges and a tan.
Maison de Nimes, Window Pane T-shirt Dress, was £45 now £27
9. The cult beauty buy
Legendary skincare brand La Mer has distilled all its usual goodness into this superpower concentrate, designed to soothe scarring, redness and skin that's suffered a trauma. Pop the palm-sized bottle into your bag for hydration on the go.
La Mer, The Concentrate 30ml, was £275 now £247.50
10. The layer she'll love
Yes, summer is around the corner, but a lightweight layer or two is a smart buy given the unpredictable British weather. We just wish this botanical print beauty came in adult sizes.
Little Dickins & Jones, Long Sleeve Botanical Print Top, was £16 now £11.20
