ASOS Trending Now for Under $50
1. Gingham skirt
There’s something so sweet about a timeless, effortless gingham skirt. This one is relaxed, airy, and destined to keep you cool and comfortable on even the steamiest days. It’s also perfect if you want to wear something that provides a little more coverage. Try it with a cropped top and flat sandals for a breezy day-out ensemble.
2. Sleeveless blouse
Staying cool at the office can be a challenge when you have to abide by a dress code. The key is to stick with lightweight basics that meet your workplace guidelines yet still fall within the parameters of practical seasonal comfort.
This River Island sleeveless top is the perfect example. The pale blue hue is just right for the season, and it looks great worn beneath an unlined blazer or on its own.
3. Pearly sandals
You probably have at least one or two pairs of shoes that you consider your summer mainstays. If it’s time to shake things up a little bit, step into something that’s as dolled up as it is casual, like these ASOS DESIGN flat sandals.
They’re embellished with jumbo pearls that lend them a slightly dressy look — but they aren’t over the top or too ostentatious to work with your warm-weather basics, like shorts and capris.
4. Breezy pants
Summer is the right time to reacquaint yourself with relaxed silhouettes that don’t sacrifice comfort to ensure that you look stylish all day long.
These Pull&Bear pacific pants are particularly ready to take on that desperately uncomfortable heat — they’re light and breezy, and perfect to pair with a plain white tee and sneakers.
5. Maxi dress
When better than summer to break out your best maxi dress? Some just look like they’re destined to be with you during your best moments of the season, like this from ASOS DESIGN.
It’s the kind of piece you can simply throw on and go, and it looks great with a pair of metallic sandals and a simple straw bag.
6. Floral jumpsuit
Channel a hint of 1970s chic in a jumpsuit that was made for the contemporary fashion girl.
This one features a brilliant daisy flower pattern that’s as eye-catching as it is flattering. The cropped length means it’s ideal to wear with shoes that are a little more eye-catching — think ankle-wrap sandals or a pair of espadrilles if you want to add some height.
