9 Fresh Trends That Will Fast-Forward Your Wardrobe

The end of June is a tricky time to go shopping. The summer solstice has only just happened, but the high street has already been colonised by seasonal sales. The thought of picking through the discount rails of tasselled kaftans and mismatched string bikinis is almost as unappealing as the warm sangria at your work’s summer BBQ (which is why it’s best to just shop our edit of the best sale pieces).

If you’re one of those people who always like to look forward and be the most directional in your clan, may we suggest Pre-Fall pieces instead? These are the collections that drop mid-season—hence the names pre-spring and Pre-Fall—and tend to be more commercial (aka less bonkers) than the clothes seen on the runways. They also usually stay in stock for longer. This is all rather confusing since Pre-Fall is already dropping this month and summer only just started last week, but there’s plenty to wear now and lots of ideas to store up for autumn.
