10 Influencers Share Their High-Street Summer Wish Lists

Every morning, I complete the same ritual. I grab a cup of coffee (the largest I can find) and head to Instagram for my daily style fix. It's probably no surprise that my Saved folder is overflowing with striking new styles, inspiring colour combinations, and sleek minimalist looks, ensuring that I have every style covered when I come to share my fashion insights with you. And whilst checking my Saved folder recently, I noticed that the most fashionable women I know all have this one skill: finding high-end-looking pieces on the high street.

As we know, gorgeous, gorgeous girls don't gatekeep, so I decided to go straight to the source. I've asked 10 influencers to share their summer wish lists, and with a focus on the high street, you'll be pleased with the prices, too. With an array of personal styles, there's plenty of variation in their must-have pieces. I've called on bright-colour enthusiasts who know a standout piece when they see it as well as monochrome lovers who know the perfect staples you need to finesse minimalism. Whether you're a summer-dress obsessive or a jeans-in-any-weather type, there's plenty of inspiration for everyone. 

Keep scrolling for the high-street wish lists of 10 fashion influencers.

Seun takes classic pieces and makes them feel oh so modern with bold pops of colours and clever design details. With a focus on cost per wear, her wish list is full of wear-forever pieces. 

Recently, I've been eyeing a couple of Loewe bucket hats. Then I came across this beauty on Arket and immediately added it to my virtual wish list. A similar style for a fraction of the price.

Sunglasses are my guilty pleasure. Although, I feel no guilt whenever I acquire a new pair. The pop of pink will most definitely add some fun to any outfit.

Yes, I wear jeans in the summer. To complete my look, I'd throw on a racerback vest, the Vagabond sandals and those fun Le Specs sunnies.

I love a chunky shoe for summer. These Vagabond thong sandals are a great option for when you want to add a little bit of height without the discomfort of heels. The soles are padded too—what a dream.


Chloe defines minimalism in her style. These staple styles will work hard in your wardrobe all year round. Muted colour palettes focusing on clever design and slick tailoring are key to her wish list. 

This classic dress with intricate crochet detailing can easily be elevated from day to night.

For sun shading, or just style points, a summer hat always completes the look.

Take it from Chloe, a great white suit is incredibly chic.

Shop the matching wide-leg trousers (£50). 

For hauling holiday essentials or carrying a laptop to the office. 

Birkenstocks remain the comfortable and stylish summer staple that every fashion person relies on. 


If dopamine dressing is your signature, then you'll be head over heels for Sara Brown's wish list. Bright colours and bold prints are mixed in perfect harmony to create uplifting outfits, and as a Who What Wear contributor, Sara knows exactly what you're looking for. 

With the rise of the cowboy aesthetic, I’m on the look for anything in bandana print.

This green bag is just pure fun! A fabulous bold colour to brighten up an outfit.

A linen shirt works so well in the summer as a layering piece. I’m especially loving it in this red colour.

How stunning is this green maxi dress? I adore its vintage vibe!

I’m always after super-low, wide-fit heels that actually look chic, and I’m thinking these tick all the boxes. 

I love this tie-dye blazer as a summer chuck-on for when the nights get chilly. I’m imagining it over a slip dress or even over a vest and shorts

This throw-on-and-go dress is set to be a sell-out. 

A shirt comes in handy for many occasions—for sleek tailoring, thrown over jeans, or completing a two-part set. 

This full set is a summer dream. 

Eni always spots the most beautiful dresses. 


Rachael has a keen eye for a standout print and can spot a cult item a mile off—like this & Other Stories dress. (Don't worry; it's linked below.)

I love the colour and cut of this playsuit. It's the perfect throw-on for summer that you can dress up or down!

I just got this Stories knitted dress, and I’m so obsessed with it! I sized up for a slouchy, loose fit. 

A classic summer dress that looks high-end but at a high-street price! Love that the straps are detachable.

I love this sweet scalloped co-ord, perfect for summer at home or away, and the top would be great with jeans, too! 

I'm a fan of snazzy trousers, and these zebra-print ones fit the bill perfectly! I’d pair them with an oversized black shirt and strappy sandals.

Nicole always finds the most expensive-looking high-street pieces that suit her colourful style. You'll find her wish list full of rainbow shades and daring prints that will add excitement to any wardrobe. 

I love this bowling shirt style. It's very relaxed and had effortless summer vibes. The print is unique and bold without being too much in black and white. Such a great summer staple!

These are such a Marmite piece, but I don't care. I love them! The girls that get it, get it, honestly. I've been eyeing these up for ages. I just love a weird twist on a classic, and these will just add so much interest to an outfit.

I love this slinky bias-cut moment, I've been trying to find a style like this second-hand, but it can be really tricky when you're a size 16 upward to find a vintage piece like this that will fit, so this high-street option is perfect! And those colours together? Come on! 

This is such a sweet visor for summer, and it's adjustable, which is perfect for me and my big head of hair! 

Blue is seriously having its moment, and this crossbody from COS is super practical, but also in a gorgeous rich colour, imagine it against an all-yellow outfit! 


Francesca's style revolves around exquisite tailoring and floaty dresses that we always want to shop. She finds elevated-looking high-street pieces that can be styled for day or night. 

The perfect summer-in-the-city dress. I would team it with ankle socks and loafers for a chic daytime outfit.

Braided-leather bags are such a good summer accessory. This one is a good size, and the transitional colour means you can wear it into autumn too. 

Love a maxi dress for summer, and the back detail of this dress is stunning.

Franny's timeless style is curated from craftsmanship, elegant silhouettes and timeless pieces. With a focus on recycled materials and vintage finds, anything on Franny's wish list is a wardrobe staple.  

In the colour of the season, this dress is perfect for day or night.

I love this collaboration between Rag & Bone and AAKS. Beautiful materials that will last over time and a timeless style that I will bring out every year without losing its quality.

Luxurious craftsmanship at an affordable price. A pair that can easily be worn during the day or evening.

Effortlessly chic glasses that go with everything.

I love pleated skirts that can be worn chic and casual with sneakers.


Sophie's easy-to-emulate and colourful style, along with her encouragement for us to wear what we love and love how we look, always has me checking her feed. With an eye for a standout dress, she has a wish list that will see you through every event you have coming up. 

It's giving barbecue, holiday, dress-up and dress-down vibes. I love repurposing my clothes, and this could even be worn undone over straight-leg jeans and with a vest. It's in Mango's extended-sizing range and goes up to a 26. 

I've been eyeing up this jacket for so long. The colour sells it to me! It gives me real festival vibes, and seeing as we live in the UK, meaning we can never guarantee warm evenings, I think it's a good one. 

I love a stripe (who doesn't?), and some of my striped staples are looking a little tired, so it might be time to add to the collection! 

It's wedding season, and as previously mentioned, I love thinking of multiple ways to wear an item. This dress would work for both occasion wear (without the hefty price tag) and worn casually with trainers or sandals. 

I'm currently in a jumpsuit-obsession phase, and these beautiful dungarees are simply fabulous!


Anna has proven time and again that black is a summer colour. Her minimalist style is woven with striking pops of colour that are always timeless, proving worthwhile purchases. 

I love a co-ord, and this green is the dream colour for summer. Combined with the lace detailing, it was love at first sight for me!

I love a longer-length denim skirt. The slim line makes it classy while remaining casual. I'll be wearing it with heels and an oversized shirt, but it would look just as good with trainers and a tee.

I'm a bit of a sucker for a logo, and this swimsuit from Anine Bing will double as a really cool top with jeans or wide-leg trousers. 

The studio range at Massimo Dutti is exquisite, and this beautiful white dress will be a welcome addition to my holiday this year. I'll wear it with simple gold accessories and flat leather sandals.

The simplicity of this tote bag really appeals to me. A simple but elegant bag to take from day to night. Love it.
