Fashion insiders – from stylists, to models and influencers – are exposed to a plethora of trends come summertime. So which pieces do they really rate, and most importantly, know they’ll turn to year after year? From holiday dressing essentials to sleek summer-in-the-city additions, we asked those in the know to weigh in on those classic, old-reliables that act as the building blocks of their summer wardrobes …

Lorna Weightman, stylist

“I love shirt dresses. Each season I look to add a signature piece to my wardrobe with an emphasis on timelessness and value for money. This summer, this dress from COS immediately caught my attention thanks to its shape through the bodice and its flared skirt. It has a floaty feel, but with subtle pleats and darts to add definition,” Weightman says.

Vanessa O’Connell, model

“My most reliable summer buy this year has been this striped oversized blouse from Massimo Dutti. It’s super lightweight and pretty crease-free (great for someone like me who hates ironing!). I love how versatile it is. I’ve been wearing it dressed down with jeans in Ireland, on the beach over swimming togs on holiday and going out at night with loose trousers or shorts, strappy sandals, gold statement jewellery and a clutch. I can see myself wearing it every summer for many years to come,” O’Connell says.

Louise Byrne, style influencer

“My timeless summer buy is a pair of leather sandals in a thong or flip flop shape. I just brought a black and a brown pair of the same style on holiday and they are so versatile. They go with everything, can be easily dressed up or down and last forever. Massimo Dutti has a couple of styles in at the moment, as do & Other Stories and Arket,” Byrne says.
