At the start of each season I like to pick out a few pieces that will really anchor my wardrobe and that I know I’ll get a ton of wear out of. When it comes to investing in my summer wardrobe, there are a few brands that I always find myself buying year after year.  I tend to stick with brands that are known for their quality and classic styles. If you’re an avid reader, you probably already know how much I love shopping at UK retailers for designer pieces. They tend to have a better in-stock selection and competitive pricing. Harvey Nichols is a UK retailer that I’ve been loving lately and I’m so excited to be partnering with them on this post. They have such a well-edited assortment of some of my favorite brands including Givenchy, Self-Portrait and Dolce & Gabbana.

When I invest in designer brands I like to pick out classic pieces that I know I’ll be able to wear for seasons to come. For summer that always involves a lace dress, great bag and espadrilles. My go-to brand for lace dresses that work for any summer event (weddings, showers and everything in between) is Self-Portrait. Every piece is just stunning. This red lace dress is the perfect dress for summer because you can wear it casually with flats (like I did above) or pair it with heels for a more formal event.

Givenchy is one of my go-to designer brands for accessories in particular. They have edgy yet chic pieces that easily transition from day to night. You’ve probably already seen this Givenchy bag a number of times on my blog because it’s one of my favorite bags. Harvey Nichols has such an amazing selection of Givenchy Antigona bags in all sizes and colors. The beige color will be my next purchase!

I always buy a great pair of espadrilles for summer and I love the Givenchy logo trim on this leather pair. They instantly elevate any outfit. I paired them with this lace dress for an effortless daytime look.
