Are you looking for sensible ways to spend your hard-earned pay this month? Is your fit rotation in need of an immediate update and revival for July’s festivities? We hear you! That’s why we’re back with our timely selection of drops that deserve your attention.
1. Juicy Couture Bandeau, JD Sports, £25
Trust the good folks over at JD Sports to get us right for the season with their curation of universally attractive summertime staples. Ladies, we know it’s never a good look to be overheated by the DJ decks & speakers, or right in the middle of the festival crowd. Opt for an easy-breezy Juicy Couture bandeau top, complete with the diamanté logo to give the Y2K feel that is still very in right now. The top comes in black, blue or a barbiecore pink, and is 22% off right now!
2. International Mesh Shorts, Cole Buxton, £95
News just in! The text for the new Cole Buxton (CB) pieces just came in today (that’s if you’re wise & subscribed early). Our favourite piece; these International mesh shorts (£95). They come in navy, black, earthy green and brown, and are breathable, slightly wide and high-waisted, giving off a vintage athlete vibe. You can’t go wrong pairing them with CB’s boxy stacked logo t-shirt (£85), a fresh pair of white Air Force 1’s or some Air Max pulses, and mid-length socks.
We also love CB’s cracked leather shorts (£295). They are at a higher price point but also due to last long and turn lots of heads. Plus, the leather finish no doubt gets better with age & wear too!
3. Bowling Shirt, Ashluxe, £235
From Lagos to Jo’burg & London, street luxury brand Ashluxe is coming different this month. Off the back of their genius, “if it fits in your bag it’s free” London pop-up this weekend, the poolside-friendly SS23 collection is available online too. The trippy floral print bowling shirt and short set – well sported by music scene head honcho Teezee – is a must-cop as an elegantly fly outfit choice. If you can’t make it down to Bethnal Green for some free pieces, you can always grab some summer staples on the site.
4. Wax & Stretch Denim Jeans, ADWOA, £250
Allow us to put you on, with the latest drop by rising brand ADWOA. The brand is named after the designer’s mother, but also doubles up as an acronym; A Day Without Angst. The newly released “DROP 1” pieces feature these wax & stretch denim jeans (£240-£250), with a smartly placed rear zip for the option of a flare or tapered fit. These may be a wardrobe need and not a want – see for yourself.
5. Cimbia Bag, Daily Paper, £200
The afro-dutch OG’s at Daily Paper are here to carry this season’s payday drop list, with the launch of their very first logo bag. Inspired by DP’s signature shield, the unmissable & embossed Cimbia bag is the right statement to make this summer. The deep and buttery black leather bag – with impeccable stitching – comes with a detachable side strap and beautifully unique silhouette. Retailing at £200, this versatile – and non discriminatory – bag is the perfect accessory to start working your summer fits around!
6. Workwear set, Cinis Studios
A Guap team favourite Cinis Studios have put the work in this season and dropped a relaxed-fit workwear set, including a cropped midriff jacket (£70) with an edgy patchwork finish on the elbows. If you’re big on your matching sets, rocking this offering by Cinis will give off that custom-made vibe at a quarter of the custom-made price!
7. Asymmetric Wrap Skirt, No Grey Area
Indian-contemporary brand No Grey Area are taking their name seriously this summer, with their colour-rich SS24 collection. An elevated re-up on their previous collections, these ready to wear pieces will have you bringing the richness of Indian culture to the streets of London. You can’t miss out on the asymmetric wrap skirt, with a checkered ocean blue material and brown & black lines.
8. Loafers, Percival x Duke & Dexter, £250
Blokecore is still a very big thing this season, and I am loving seeing all of the loafers out and about on. the streets of London. Percival, a brand dedicated to subverting British classics, have teamed up with luxury footwear brand Duke & Dexter, to give us these timeless loafers, in both a ‘rattan’ and a ‘nettle’ colourway.
