It's been a while since I've had a real long search sesh on the Topshop website, and oh boy was it hard to narrow my saved items down to make sure I don't overwhelm you with my top summer picks. As my summer holiday has started with a wardrobe clear out, I'm all for a summer shopping trip. Here are the items I feel are your must haves for summer to ensure your on trend and looking god damn fabulous in the sun.

Great for putting under baggy and sheer tops, or if your brave enough just on their own. Quite a lot of the time in the hot weather I like to wear bralets or crops like this instead of bras as they get so uncomfortable.
What's a summer without busting out the short shorts. However, in my case I like to go for some slightly longer ones than the most popular cheek showing length. These look perfect and also love the colour of the denim and the vintage wash.
So these aren't everyones idea of a summer shoe, but being a bit of a sandal and flip flop fobe I stay clear and go for other alternatives. The gold would look great with a bit of a tan and perfect for those days when you haven't had a pedi for a while. I've tried them on in store and they're so comfortable!
Not normally much of a colour wearer, I thought this was nice amount of bright colours to get more summery items in my collection . I think it's cool in hot weather, easy as a throw on for lunchtime or even an easy evening outfit perfect for hot evenings.
Now this is quite out there for me in terms of colour. I love the bardot neckline which I think is just the most flattering for all women of all sizes. The bright and vibrant colour would look great on all skin tones and the pattern is so pretty. Teamed with the denim shorts or even the skirt I think this is such a perfect versatile top perfect for the warmer weather.
Every fashion conscious person out there is fully aware of the pj trend at the moment, so why not actually wear some pjs out? Again would look great with some denim shorts/skirt and the cacti print is so cute. I really like the fact the background colour isn't white but cream, which will give a little different feel to your outfit, instead of a bright white.
Who doesn't love a matching bikini? I struggle finding a good fitting bikini as my body shape isn't the standard that shops make for (which I'm guessing is the story for a lot of people). A halter tie top is one of the best for me and love the fact it's a different colour of the actual bra, so contrasting and eye catching.
As I've already said, a bardot neckline is one of my favourite and most flattering. Every summer this trend goes everywhere and I'm totally happy about that. Having a plain white bardot in your collection is a clever move and opens up more outfit options for you. The frill around the top is cutesy and can see this being so popular.
Wearing just a crop top isn't for me, but with this its different. Having a floaty overlay to the tight fitting crop top would enable me to wear this without the confidence worries. Everyone loves a bit of lace, especially in summer. Can see this being paired with a nice pair of palazzo pants ready for day or night time fun.
Not being much of a fan of anything that's too short, I love the fact this is high waisted and a longer length. I remember having denim skirts like this years ago and its crazy how trends come back around. I just wish I'd kept my original (dam clothing clear outs and having lack of storage space to keep all of my clothes).
I'm late to this trend and never thought I'd be game for it, however, here I am declaring my love for the baseball cap thing going on right now. If I had to choose, I'd definitely have to go with a black cap to ensure I get the most wear out of it possible. Would help keep the sun off your face, and when teamed with a sports luxe outfit looks too good.
Is there anything that Ive missed on the website that you think I need to add to my summer shopping list?
