I have waaaaaay too many summer clothes. Most of them only get worn a few times a year (the occasional hot day and for 2 or so weeks of holiday). So in an effort to have fewer, better summer clothes, I'm about to cull what I have and make a list of what's worth spending on for next year. Can I ask what has worked for you this summer? The things I'm keeping are:
Heidi Klein bikinis
J crew swimwear and t shirts
Stories linen shorts
Cos fine knits
Silk wrap dress and printed silk tunic
Topshop white shirt beach cover up
I am planning to get rid of all the unflattering maxi dresses and tunics. On my list to get are good quality sandals and canvas beach bag.
Would be interested to hear what other people's best summer buys have been.

This summer it was pleated skirts, some off the shoulder frill dresses in classic colours, and statement sandals. Also been wearing playsuits again this year - both day and night ones. Found investing in beach outfits worthwhile.

I'm ditching maxi dresses, shorts for holiday and short skirts.

I stuck to basics in summer given we don't get to wear them much here.
Jigsaw cotton t-shirts
GAP denim shorts and skirt
Zara cotton sun dresses
Clark's flat leather sandals

We had a city holiday so no beachy clothes, but the things I wore most over summer were:

Midi dresses, with bare legs and trainers
Black slim fit dungarees
Plaited patterned midi skirts with plain tucked in t-shirts, again, bare legs and trainers

My worst buy was my Saltwater sandals, as it was rarely nice enough to wear them. Hopefully next year...

And for the beach/pool - loads of primark vests and shorts that should do another year

Thanks - these are useful. I'll add a maxi skirt/dress to my wish list for next year.
