Usually seen as the month that typically unveils summer, June in the UK has quite literally been a month of meteorology uncertainty. From less-than-ideal bursts of rain to spontaneous heat waves, this month has taught us to reinforce our capsule wardrobes and prepare for all seasons. Even if that means experiencing summer and autumn on the same day.

As we try to navigate dressing for the wavering weather and hoping for more sun in both comfort and style, here at MC HQ, the fashion team is excited to secure one or two end-of-month pick-me-ups for this season. From Lily's alternative workwear trousers to Penny's ultra-chic Massimo Dutti dress and Natalie's must-have floral mesh flats, all of these stylish picks are leaving me very excited and inspired, hence my ultra-summery selection.

So, if you, like us, are on the lookout for an occasionwear dress, a trendy accessory, and even a super unique handbag (or two), we have collated each fashion team member's payday picks to invest in now regardless of the occasion. From summer holidays to office power dressing in the sun, we got you covered.
