From a covetable phone case to the season's most versatile bag, here's what the Marie Claire fashion team will be investing in this month
Hooray, it's payday! Forget tackling niggling bills and renewing your bus pass (snooze!), it's finally time to satisfy your fashion wants and NEEDS.
What to splurge on at the end of the month requires some serious thought, and the Marie Claire fashion team are no exception to the rule. Trust us, temptation is an occupational hazard. Luckily, our press previews and collection sneak peeks have made us experts on what to invest in for the month ahead, and we're here to spill. From our Senior Style Editor to our Fashion Assistants, our experts share what they're about to buy...
THE STAMENT SUNNIES Karen Walker sunglasses, £125.99
'Karen Walker is the only name to note if you’re after chic statement eyewear. If like me, your wardrobe is typically monochrome or blue, bold accessories are they way to go. I’ll wear these two-tone navy and olive glasses to elevate an all-denim look. They can even be fitted with prescription lenses.' Abi Odugbesan, Senior Fashion Assistant.
THE WEAR ANYWHERE SANDAL Ancient Greek sandals, £140
'I’m in love with these stylish lace-up flats from Ancient Greek Sandals. They’re super summery but don’t show too much of your foot so I can wear them to the office and on holiday.' Lucia Debieux, Fashion Editor
THE THROW-ON SUMMER DRESS Rachel Comey dress, £290
'The oversized A-line shape of this Rachel Comey dress is my ideal silhouette. In all-over white it’s the perfect throw-on-and-go dress for summer. I’ll wear it with espadrilles and a smudge of red lipstick.' Grace Smithen, Senior Fashion Assistant
THE HERO BIKINI Kiini bikini, £225
'I’m off to Mexico in two weeks and counting! I’ve been dreaming about this crochet bikini from Kiini for months and now nothing else will do!' Hannah Lewis, Fashion Assistant
THE ULTIMATE BAG Loewe Bag, £1,495
'I’ve been searching for a new bag all year and the Loewe Puzzle bag has to be it. You're able to wear it five different ways, making it the most versatile bag of the season.' Des Lewis, Senior Style Editor

THE COOL COVER-UP Marc by Marc Jacobs phone case, £15
'I’m finally the owner of an iPhone 6. As someone who loses just about everything this wasn’t a purchase I took lightly – and neither was my choice of cover. This stripy number from Marc by Marc Jacobs is currenly on sale at Liberty - case closed!' Debi Simpson, Fashion Assistant
