A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to pop along to the ultra-plush surroundings of the Soho Hotel in Central London for a very special sneak preview of what Next have on offer for high summer. I'm still suffering from a serious case of wanderlust after my trip to Morocco earlier in the year, so am eager to book another holiday adventure soon- and having a look at what Next have in store for the coming months has definitely inspired me to plan an escape sooner rather than later! With practical summer dressing in mind, they've put together a really solid collection of holiday staples, as well as pieces which are perfect for spending summer in the city. With rumours of a heatwave on the way at the end of the month, I was eager to catch a glimpse of some new season essentials, and wasn't at all disappointed:
As always, Next's selection of accessories has got to be one of the best on the high street. They always offer accent pieces which instantly update any outfit, and here boxy, satchel style designs were contrasted with slouchier, more relaxed backpacks- perfect for traveling. Amidst a palette of pretty pastels for high summer sit vibrant pops of pink and orange, and simple block colour basics contrast with a host of pretty prints which conjure up an instant summer holiday feel. I also loved the shoes and sandals on display- ideal for updating old favourites and injecting a little nod to modern minimalism into any wardrobe. Needless to say, I've now got a rather long shopping list- as well as a serious urge to book another trip away!
Do you like the look of Next's new season pieces?
