Summer style buys with forward2me


The summer holidays are just around the corner. Whether you’re set to travel off somewhere for a nice long holiday or plan to spend some time enjoying a break closer to home, the summer holidays are a great excuse for a new outfit (or two, or three..!)

We love summer fashion here at forward2me and so, it seems, do many of our customers! British style has never been more popular and many of our customers use our parcel forwarding service to get their hands on the latest ‘on trend’ looks.

Here we take a look at some of the key trends for the summer season and where to get your hands on them.


Embroidery is still everywhere this season  and can be seen across all items of clothing and accessories too. Bringing a touch of boho style to otherwise plain garments, embroidery is an easy to wear trend for all age groups. To get the embroidered look without the price tag, take a look at New Look’s collection.


If there’s one time of year you can get away with wearing bright colours, it’s summer, so why not take full advantage! The spring/summer catwalks were full of colour – particularly pink – but also blues, greens and yellows. To get the ‘off the catwalk’ look, stick to the same shade from top to toe – you can even go the whole way and get shoes to match!  


Florals are a perennial favourite at this time of year, bringing fun and femininity to almost any outfit. This year, florals go even further with head-to-toe floral prints seen across the catwalks. Matching floral prints are a must in separates, or else maxi dresses and jumpsuits also give that statement floral vibe. Check out Oasis, who always have a gorgeous collection of floral prints across their collections.


Stripes are another trend that comes back time and time again. To bring stripes up to date for 2017, go bold with brightly coloured or big blocks of stripes – it’s all about making a statement. To get the on-trend striped look at a great price, visit Misguided.


Summer is hopefully the time when you’ll get to spend some time relaxing in the sunshine, either by the pool or the beach. Beachwear seems to improve with every year that goes by and this year, the selection is bigger and better than we’ve seen it before.  Cocoa Bay has a stunning collection, as does Simply Beach.

Athleisure wear

Hurrah - the sporty look is set to stay around for this season – the perfect excuse to mix style with comfort! For the ultimate in luxury sports style, head over to Sweaty Betty or for the off-duty athletic look at a brilliant price, you can always count on ef_id=Vq@YBQAAAa3b3hA8:20170320141159:s">H&M.
