My suggestion? Buy staples in black and white that will last you for a few seasons, only adding a few statement pieces like jewellery or mixing it with timeless denim pieces where you can.
Here, I have chosen 3 black and 3 white summer staples from some of our most fashionable Instagram friends:
1. Black crop and full skirt in black. You can mix and match this with other items and go from day to night in a few items flat.

2. Get some sliders in white from Mr Price. They look great with any day look - especially on the beach with a jean short and a tank top.

3. Mix it up with an art trend playsuit.
