Summer Essentials Sale Shopping List


No one needs 100 dresses in their wardrobe that they’ll hardly wear, so just make sure you’ve nailed a couple of these styles below and you’ll be good until the autumn comes.

Maxi Dress

Maxi dresses are flattering, comfortable and perfect for all sizes and shapes. Just find the perfect style for you and never be afraid to opt for a bold print.

Slip Dress

These are so easy to style with so many things and easy to layer with t-shirts and knitwear so grab one for summer and you’ll be wearing it way into fall.

White Dress

If you’ve never done an all-white look, it’s time for your first time. The best part about wearing all white is that you get to show off your tan so choose a little white dress and get in the summer spirit asap.


Ditzy prints are the new florals for this summer (it is basically a micro floral print) and we can’t get enough of them. In mini, midi or maxi form, opt for this microprint and you’ll be wearing it with wedges, heels, sandals, and trainers all summer long.

Shorts & T-Shirts

Let’s get back to basics. EVERYONE needs the perfect pair of denim shorts and everyone needs a couple of t-shirts to style with them. We’re pretty sure we’ve found the ideal pair of denim shorts right here but if you’re not sold, we also did a blog post all about the best pairs of denim shorts so you can get some more inspo.

We also recently did a post all about why we need a graphic t-shirt in our life and you’ll defo need one or two to pair with your denim shorts.

The Only Summer Jacket You Need

Summer jackets can be tricky but if you only get one this season, opt for the denim jacket. It’s the jacket that comes back again and again and whether you want to wear it over swimwear or eveningwear it always just works.

Opt for a lighter wash for a more contemporary take on the look and oversized gives the head-to-toe look way more edge than a classic fitted style.

Here, take a look at some designer options because when it comes to investing you want to spend your money on items you know won’t go out of style and you know you can wear over and over and the denim jacket is definitely one of those pieces. Check out our best denim jacket brands blog for even more inspo.

The Accessories

When it comes to putting together outfits, you always need the most important accessories to complete your look so when you’re pulling together your new summer wardrobe, don’t forget to factor in a couple of summer-inspired accessories to finish your looks off with a little added sass.

The Beach Bag

Whether you’re headed to the beach or not, a chic beach bag is a must-have summer essential to get right and if you do get it right, it can be so good. It needs to fit your beach towel, water bottle, SPF skincare and maybe even your current beach read or laptop but you also don’t want it to be so big that you can barely carry it.

Here are a couple of tote bags that we think fit the bill perfectly. And yes, they’re on sale right now. Plus, if you're not sure about straw bags, let's see if we can persuade you in our blog post all about them!!


Everyone’s style is different so for warm weather shopping the headwear will be very different too. Beach days style and summer lunch also require hugely different options so from straw hats to headbands, here are just a few of our current favorite headgear looks for summer.


We LOVE sunglasses at Shop It To Me and no matter what the time of year, we have a HUGE selection of styles on sale with prices reduced up to 70%. From cat eye shapes to classic aviators, if you thought you couldn’t get sale designer sunglasses in the summer months, think again.

Let us inspire you with a couple of our favorite options or check out our full sunglasses blog detailing LOADS of great steals.

The Jewelry

We noted a couple of weeks ago that the shell trend was huge for this summer and it’s only getting bigger and bigger. If you’re buying jewelry this season, invest in the eternal summer trend and pick-up some shells.

The Shoes You Can’t Live Without

We love to keep it simple when it comes to summer shoe shopping. We’ve recently dropped a blog all about this summer’s biggest shoe trends BUT here, we’re looking a little more towards the classic summer shoes that you know you’ll wear year after year and finding you these pieces on sale. You’re welcome!!


Basic? Yes. Essential? Yes.

Everyone needs flip flops for summer, right? BUT who wants to spend loads!? Check out these styles, all on sale right now.

White Sneakers

Everyone also needs the perfect pair of white sneakers for the summer season because when you don’t want to wear flip flops, sandals or wedges, you need white sneakers.

When it comes to summer sneakers, we love simple and classic. And if you opt for this look then you’ll never struggle to style them. Wear them with maxi and short dresses and every kind of denim you have. They always look good.

These options are all in sale with up to 60% off the original price tag on Shop It To Me.


Some people don’t like wedges. They think they aren’t on-trend and sometimes even a little dated. However, wedges are still a summer classic. So, we thought we’d show you exactly how to do wedges that are definitely on-trend.

Plus – wedges lengthen the legs and make them appear slimmer, which can be super flattering. AND they help to dress up literally any look from jean shorts to dresses without the pain of wearing hard-to-walk-in heels. Winner!

When it comes to shopping summer essentials, we’re not breaking any records on creativity here. The point is, we’ve found the classics that we all need every single year and we’ve found them on sale.
