Where to Shop Your Summer Staples for Every Occasion

Where to Shop Your Summer Staples for Every Occasion

Let Debenham's teach you a thing or two about dressing for the tropics



Shopping for the summer isn't easy—not when you're looking to go over and beyond the tank tops and denim cut-offs, that is. While warmer days signal the prime time for visits to the beach and road trips with the stereo turned up to full blast, for most of us, real life doesn't stop when summer hits. Wardrobes call for a little diversity when the season tells you to balance work and play, city and sea.


Enter: Debenham's. You may be familiar with the British department store or some of the brands it houses, but trust us: you've never seen them quite like this. With the modern woman's cosmopolitan lifestyle in mind, Debenham's pushes summer-ready functionality to the fore.


Never scrimping on variety, each of the store's brands brings something fresh to the table. Star by Julien MacDonald, a label formed in collaboration with the Welsh fashion designer, reinvents scuba dresses and structured separates with palm prints and subtle peeks at skin. RJR.John Rocha targets the sophisticated woman on the go, while Red Herring brings together florals and scalloped hems for trendy, feminine looks. Hit up Principles and The Collection for transitional pieces to take you from workday weekdays to seaside weekends.


What better way to welcome the warmth than a closet overhaul? Save the off-shoulder tops for when they make their inevitable return to the trend cycle. Instead, breathe new life into your wardrobe with stark whites and fearless brights. Ahead, we narrow down your shopping lists with staples for every summer occasion.
