Today I’m sharing some summer 2020 fashion must haves.

Summer 2020 is upon us and lockdown is starting to ease slightly here in the UK so the prospect of perhaps leaving the house and making some low key plans for the summer is an exciting one to look forward to, although to what extent that could be no one knows for sure.

In the meantime I like to plan for the future and look ahead and here are some must haves for the summer wardrobe that I always like to include in mine.

Summer 2020 Fashion Must Haves

Denim jacket

A denim jacket is a perfect item to wear on cooler summer days and looks great layered over simple shorts and a tee or with summer dresses. Here are a few of my favourites.
