Boohoo's New Beauties

If you head over to online retailer now, there's a fantastical sale for all your fashion needs, but if it's nautical attire you're after, read on.

We've selected our favourite pieces from their newest arrivals, we think you'll like!

If you don't have a playsuit in your wardrobe yet, don't fear, this Boohoo number will do the trick. Combining the nautical trend and this season's military style, this red number is a sure-fire winner. It's also available in navy, but we quite like the colour of confidence. For £18.00 it's a complete and utter sea-faring steal, most high street playsuits start at around £30.00. Get it before it's gone.

This bandeau dress is crying out for a day at the beach. It's cute as can be with stripes, polka dots and little red heart buttons. A comfy summer cover-up with class, very Blake Lively, we love it. £20.00.

We featured a dress very much like this Boohoo beauty last month, but we've decided this one is even better. The former favourite sweetheart dress was from Joy and was retailing at £30.00, this version is just £20.00 and in red.

Last but most certainly not least this colour block dress is very PPQ and a similar version is also in stock at New Look. For £20.00 we like this super-saver that can be thrown over a sea-faring swimsuit for laid-back glamour.

Just Add Pearls

This spot bubble sleeve tea dress from Topshop is our new all-consuming love. Team with a string of pearls and it's a tea-time treat. We're thinking once donned, yachts, scones and boy candy are mere minutes away. For £45.00 we think that's a small price to pay!

If you're feeling a little strapped for cash, but want a high street pick-me-up, look no further than these cosy River Island socks. At £2.99 they'll only break your heart, not the bank.

Ahh the piece de resistance. Our new 'IT' shoes are these Irregular Choice Kim Oh No shoes. At £79.99 we're going to have to save for them, but buoy will it be worth it. Polka dot in red? We're so there.
