Best ASOS finds for summer

Last week I mentioned on my instagram that ASOS has been killing it recently! I have purchased a bunch of new items – many of which I think are the best ASOS finds for summer and I’ve reviewed each piece in this post. Every item is under £40 ($50)!!

I had never really shopped at ASOS until this winter when I saw some great picks from other bloggers that I follow. After looking at the ASOS website more, I kept finding things that I liked the look of. ASOS has SO much on their site but if you have the patience to scroll through (and you have some sort of idea of what you’re looking for) it’s really not that overwhelming. ASOS also offers free delivery for orders over £20 and free returns. Makes life so. much. easier.

Oh and they also have a loyalty programme. You get money back for shopping there – WIN.

[Note I have linked to the UK ASOS site but everything should be available on the US version of their site as well.]

Alright let’s dive in….

My best ASOS finds

The most adorable white bathing suit

White bathing suit for honeymoon/ wedding festivities 💕

Summer is right around the corner. You know what that means? BIKINI SEASON! 👙 The best motivation I’ve had for getting into shape for summer is buying new bikinis in winter and putting them on once or twice a month to make sure I’m on track for my fitness goals. Added motivation ….my bachelorette party in Vegas at the beginning of July and wedding in August 😊 It’s been great to keep me active!

One of the bathing suits I bought to motivate me was this white one from ASOS which is my wedding/ honeymoon bathing suit (…it will be one of many I’m sure) It is just SO adorable, fits really well, feels well made and is different from most other bathing suits I’ve seen. I have never seen anyone else wearing this!! (And if you’re reading this and coming to the bach party/ wedding/ or any other trip with me…please don’t buy it. haha) It’s also a great price! I am obsessed.

Above is a picture of the bathing suit on it’s own. But it’s also featured in some of the pictures further down in the post.

Bikini:  white cold shoulder bathing suit

Black maxi cover up

I decided that since I have so many big summer events (see above….Vegas, wedding, honeymoon….) that it was probably time for me to update my swim/ bikini cover ups. Most of my dresses are a few years old and aren’t really my style anymore. I managed to find this gorgeous maxi skirt on ASOS’ website in black. It’s very flattering in that it’s long and silky – plus the long slit on the side shows off a little skin / leg. Ah-mazing.

Bikini: ASOS – linked earlier in post  |  Cover up: Black maxi sarong wrap skirt

White maxi cover up

Same exact skirt cover up as the black one above….but decided I needed it in white for the wedding/ honeymoon. ☺️

Bikini: ASOS – linked earlier in post  |  Cover up: White maxi sarong wrap skirt

Black cover up dress

This little cover up is great for slipping over a bathing suit. It has a cold shoulder tie detail that makes it stand out a bit from a normal cover up. I went down a size because it looked baggy on the model – probably could’ve gone down another size.

Cover up: Black silky cover up

Blue maxi dress

Blue summer maxi dress

This dress is really unique and pretty for the summer. I could see wearing it on the beach for an evening meal or to dinner out after a day at the pool. I will probably bring it to our upcoming trip to Spain with a group of close friends (less than 1 month…woooo!) The dress is very flattering especially the criss-cross on the back and the tie.

The only negative thing I have to say is that the material isn’t the best quality and it sits a bit weird on the sides – so it doesn’t lay quite flat. I am a bit paranoid and so I think it makes me look wider from the front angle (see pic above) but I’m still going to keep the dress based on the other pluses I listed. Can’t wait to wear it! 💃🏻

Tie back

Dress: Summery blue dress

Nude pencil skirt

Ribbed nude skirt

This skirt is everything 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 I am in love with the nude colour and the fit is OH. so. flattering! I mean look at the pics. I put it on and it looks so svelte that I decided to pair it with a cropped top (bold for me!). The looks is adorable and with nude stilettos it just elongates my legs even more. I can’t wait to wear this on date night coming up. Boo is going to love it!!! I am even considering getting the matching top….but we will see. It might be too matchy-matchy.

Side slit

Top: Forever 21 (old), similar Asos crop top  |  Skirt: Nude coloured pencil skirt  |  Shoes: Christian Louboutin Pigalle

Off the shoulder body con dress

Black body con

This dress was a random find and I am obsessed! It fits really well and is very cozy. I don’t feel self conscious wearing it and actually it looks really flattering. My only con is that it has seams on the chest that I feel like could’ve been better placed elsewhere. However, for the price, you cannot beat it!

Bardot body con

Dress:  Bardot body con dress  |  Shoes: Saint Laurent (snakeskin print is last season), Saint Laurent black pair here

Other items not pictured

Hits:

  • Fitted white button down shirt – Just a plain white button down to pair with the nude skirt above and other summer skirts. Fits well and was very reasonably priced.

Misses:

  • Zebra print maxi cover up – The dress shape is really pretty (although would recommend going down a size from your normal size). But I didn’t like the zebra print. In the pictures on the site it’s very pretty but in person it looked very faded which made it look like really cheap material. I will probably buy this cover up in another colour but at the moment I have enough black cover ups!

Hope you find some amazing summer buys at ASOS as well. Comment below on your own best ASOS finds!

    She Sweats Diamonds

    • Oh my you’re just too sweet!!! I’m trying. This week has not been great because my toe was injured so I hardly worked out. 😱But tomorrow I am going to an all day fitness “festival” hosted by Lululemon called The Sweat Life. Hoping it helps!!
