As life slowly returns to normal, pubs and restaurants reopen and international travel begins to look like an option again for some this year, I’m finding myself revisiting new-in sections with a newfound interest now that I am wearing more than just jogging bottoms. There are three high-street summer collections in particular that I’m really impressed with: Zara, & Other Stories and COS.
All of these summer collections have plenty of throw-on appeal, making them realistic for my working-from-home set-up and low-key summer plans. They also all have an elevated and timeless appeal, meaning they’ll last for summers for years to come. Hero pieces I have my eye on include a pale-blue cotton midi dress from COS, a pair of sage-green shorts from Zara and chunky school shoes from & Other Stories.
