Summer Style on a Shoestring: Shop the High Street's 15 Best Buys

Two weekends of sunshine, and we're more than ready to stock up on affordable summer style to see us through the next few months. Optimistic? Maybe. But you can never be too prepared when it comes to winning in the style stakes—who knows when a heatwave could present itself? So, if you're equally keen to get going with the new season's fashion mood, then rejoice: We've trawled the high street's every inch or rail space in order to find the very best must-not-be-missed buys.

From the latest drop of new-in stock, we've unearthed stand-out sundresses that will work as beautifully for a picnic as they will on holiday, chic mid-heel sandals that you can dash around in day after day, and some statement tops that can instantly rejuvenate last year's denim shorts and midi skirts. Whatever you pick from our summer style shakedown, the bonus points lie in the fact that these pieces don't look at all as if you've purchased them on a shoestring. Savvy.

Go through the gallery to see the 15 hot-weather wonders we'll be buying…
