Cute Late Summer Outfits on a Budget


Find inspiration with some of the cutest outfit ideas on a budget, all ideal for late summer. We’ve enlisted some help from our friends over on Instagram who has shown us how they’ve styled their top picks, which will help you refresh your wardrobe with versatile, affordable, and beautiful pieces.

Matching Perfectly

First up, we have Chantelle from who has styled a beautiful Brave Soul playsuit with the UGG Lecia Sandals.

"As a mum I look for outfits which are versatile, cool and comfy, but also look great. That is why I love this Brave Soul button through playsuit. It is a gorgeous burnt orange colour and also super practical! I have paired it with the UGG Lecia sandals which match perfectly! I love how I can get designer pieces like this at such a reasonable price on MandM Direct."

All mums will know that when you’re running around and trying to entertain your children, worrying about your outfit is the last thing on your mind. With Chantelle’s picks, you can keep cool in the sun and not have to worry about your skirt blowing up whilst you’re chasing the runaway balloon your child so kindly decided to let go of. Doesn’t she look fab? Head on over to Chantelle’s Instagram to check out more of her content!

Casual Summer Outfit

She said 'Wearing a dress always makes me feel happy, so the summer outfit I chose from MandM Direct had to be this stripy cotton dress from Brave Soul. It has a very forgiving stretchy bodice, thin adjustable straps and a lovely loose skirt which is great when it's hot! I paired it with a pair of Puma trainers in 'rosewater' (a dusky pink) which are really comfortable, and will be great for days out and country walks with the dog this summer. I also picked up some aviator sunglasses which I think are really eye catching - and they definitely help to cover up the fact that my kids wake me up really early every day! They are all pieces that I know I'll get loads of use out of together and separately - and for under £75 for the whole outfit including some trainer socks, I saved £75 on the RRP - I'm really happy with that.'

When you’re responsible for clothing another human being, discounts and savings on clothing and footwear are the number one thing you look for. Putting an outfit together really does add up, which is why we love selling big brands at low prices. You can have your cake AND eat it too! We love Fran’s picks, she gets a round of applause from us!

Check out what she has to say about her picks!

“Summer days! How beautiful has this summer been?’ Despite the pandemic we have continued to make memories and enjoy ourselves as a family most weekends. I love floaty summer dresses to dance around in and build sandcastles on the beach with the girls and to feel carefree and pretty, thank you @mandmdirect for our beautiful dresses and my super comfy wedges. Such a wide range of gorgeous summer clothes from big brands up to 75% off too! Yellow is my favourite summer colour so the girls had to have these matching yellow dresses, aren’t they adorable?! The little pom poms on the sleeves and the large bows on the back caught my eye instantly!”

That feeling when you put on an outfit that you feel great in really is one of the best. Finding your style and feeling confident really can make a difference to your day, so why not treat yourself to a couple of staple pieces that’ll brighten up your wardrobe and give you that new found ‘Super Mum’ feeling. Megg has nailed this look, and we think you will too!
