Although we’re still very much in the summer holiday season, many of us have been on our travels already and are left with new items that can’t quite find a place in our everyday wardrobes.
Just because the UK summer is a bit all over the place, it shouldn’t stop you from wearing your vests, shorts, and mini dresses.
The She Selected team have come together to give you their top tips on how to re-wear your fave summer fits.
Wear your cover-up on a night out
Lightweight shirts and crochet tops are great for a summer holiday. They add an extra layer of interest, but still give you the coverage you want when going for lunch or a cocktail.
Did you know they can also be a great addition to your night-out wardrobe?
Instead of throwing your trusty white shirt over a bikini, wear it with a laced bralette. Unbutton it just enough to show what’s underneath for a hint of texture and a lot of sex appeal.
The Lace Trim Silk Cami from Kands London is the ideal top to put underneath an oversized beach cover-up. This comfortable bodysuit is the perfect companion for leather trousers and strappy heels on a night out.
It’s all in the layering
Strappy tops and cropped tanks make for great layering pieces - both home and away.
We’re loving wearing a racer-style vest with an oversized work shirt over the top. This winning combo is perfect for unpredictable weather.
If you have a strappy midi dress that you only managed to wear once this summer, a great way to make it more wearable for daytime is by putting a short sleeve t-shirt underneath. It doesn’t just give ‘Clueless’ vibes, it also adds depth and interest to your look. Pair with trainers and a micro bag for a simple but effective daytime look.
If this sounds like a style you’d like to try, we recommend the Sisterhood Jeanne Slip in White for a classic and minimal feel.
Throw on a jacket
Have a summer dress that shows a bit too much skin? Or is your new co-ord not cutting the mustard when it comes to keeping you warm?
Jackets are a simple and easy way to elevate an outfit and incorporate other trends while making it weather-appropriate.
Denim jackets are the unsung hero of summer. You can easily throw them over a mini dress, skirt, or playsuit without the worry of a clash in style.
Blazers are the perfect option if you want to make your look that little bit smarter. If you’re meeting with friends but don’t fancy changing out of your joggers and tank, a blazer will be your best friend.
The Boyfriend Blazer from Goldie London is a timeless classic and can be worn with basically everything.

Bikini as a top? Why not?
With more styles constantly appearing online, you could easily get away with wearing a bikini as a top.
Wear your fave bikini top of the summer with a high-waisted mini skirt for a barely-there night out look.
The Lemon Lunar Slinky Midi Skirt is our night-out go-to. The neutral brown pairs perfectly with every colour and print, while the slit leg design adds a sexy edge to any look. You can never go wrong when you have this skirt in your collection.
Are swimming costumes back in?
A low-back one-piece pairs perfectly with wide-leg jeans and trainers. Styled with a shoulder bag and big hoops, this makes the perfect dinner date outfit.
The YAS Yasayo Skinny Jeans are a staple piece that can be worn all year round. The high-waisted ankle-length design is so versatile that you can easily pair it with everything from winter knits to cropped camis.
