10 must have fashion and beauty buys

Ever wondered what the OK! fashion and beauty team actually spend their wages on? Each week we’re rounding up our top buys you need to invest in, and this week we’ve got 12 must-have items we’ve hand selected just for you.

If you’re jetting off on holiday or looking forward to the heatwave next week, we’ve found some perfect buys that won’t cost the earth: a gorgeous straw hat from Next, a bargain swimsuit that will have you looking poolside perfect, and an expensive-smelling perfume that costs just £10.

So what are you waiting for? Scroll below for our best buys – but don’t wait around too long, as we have a feeling these could sell out quick!

If you have a summer holiday booked after a few years of restricted travel, you definitely deserve some new swimwear.

F&F at Tesco have some gorgeous new styles for you to choose from, and better yet a selection of styles to suit all body shapes. Our favourite is this yellow number which is perfect for making a poolside statement – it’s an absolute bargain at £18, leaving you with some pennies for some new sliders.

Yellow swimsuit, F&F, £18 here

After a spring scent that won’t break the bank? Try this dreamy new offering from Avon. A gourmand fragrance inspired by the Northern Lights, you’ll find notes of pink peppercorn, water lily and vanilla bourbon in this easy-to-wear EDP.

Far Away Aurora Eau de Parfum Avon £10 here

Joma Jewellery have the most gorgeous affordable jewellery, with the majority of their pieces sitting around the £25 mark. We’re currently obsessed with their Bohemia collection, which is full of real semi-precious gemstones and is designed for those who want a fashion-forward find for less.

This necklace is great for adding a boho touch to your outfit – we’ll be layering up with other pendants too for a super luxe vibe.

Necklace, Joma Jewellery, £24.99 here

Want to give skin a quick pick-me-up? Leave this vitamin C-infused sheet mask on for 15 minutes to reveal a brighter, fresher-looking face. It has a zingy pink grapefruit and mint scent too, which will wake up the senses as well as the skin.

Soap & Glory Bright + Beautiful Brightening Sheet Mask, Boots £3.95 here

This summer we will definitely be investing in a pretty neck scarf. It’s a fun way of accessorising a simple vest or tying onto the handle of your tote bag.

Why not try teaming it with a pair of jeans, a plain white t-shirt and a blazer for a fab weekend look? Or it can also work as a headscarf – the possibilities are endless.

Silk scarf, M&S, £12.50 here

Perk up your complexion with this creamy blusher stick from Ariana Grande’s makeup line. We love this bright coral for spring, but there are nine other shades to choose from.

Cheek & Lip Stick, r.e.m. beauty, £18 here

If there’s just one accessory you buy for your holiday or the upcoming heatwave, then make it a stylish hat.

Yes, you may have to carry it on the plane so it doesn’t get squished in your suitcase, but no swimwear look is complete without one and it protects your head from the sun, too – so it’s a win-win really.

We love the scallop trim edge detail on this one from high street favourite Next. We can’t wait to wear it poolside.

One of two new retinol serums from Trinny Woodall’s skincare brand Trinny London. This one is aimed at congested complexions, and combines high-strength retinal with niacinamide to banish blemishes while also tackling fine lines.

Overnight Clarity Retinal/Niacinamide Serum, Trinny London, £62 here

Don’t want to fork out for designer sunglasses? Luckily you can find some hot styles on the high street for under £20.

Cat eye sunglasses have remained a trend for several seasons now and, luckily, they suit pretty much all face shapes. We love how bold these yellow frames are and, with the colour block trend being huge at the moment, they’re well worth parting with 13 quid for.

Sunglasses, River Island, £12.99 here

Ready to start getting your legs out in this season’s best dresses? Prep them beforehand with this 2-in1 body exfoliator. The sugar-based scrub melts into a gently foaming cleanser, leaving skin feeling super soft and smooth.

Rosehip Body Scrub + Cleanser, Frank Body, £16.95 here

This shirt is definitely giving us festival vibes and we love that there are also trousers to match. If you’re not feeling daring enough to go for the co-ord, you can wear this longline shirt with a pair of white jeans and some sandals for a cute summer look.

Marble prints are one of our favourite trends this summer, with small brands such as Jaded London having sold prints like this for some time, and this season you’ll spot the seventies trend all over the high street.

Longline shirt, Reserved, £29.99 here
