Located off the ever-hip Upper Street, Angel Central Shopping Centre (formerly known as The N1 Centre) has a vibrant and stylish collection of shops, cafes, restaurants, cinemas and music venues under its roof. Whether you want to watch the latest movies and share a family-sized popcorn snack, or dine out for two on something more extravagant, Angel Central offers you that choice.
It feels like forever since we’ve had a bit of sunshine, so we don’t blame you if you haven’t got any summer clothes currently in your wardrobe. Fear not though, we’re here to help!
We’ve got a great selection of fantastic clothes and accessory shops on-site here at Angel Central, with some of the hottest new summer looks for you to choose from at incredible prices.
So, whether you’re jetting off abroad or spending the summer in the UK, here are our top picks for summer holiday essentials that you can get right here at Angel Central!
The playsuit should be a staple of everyone’s wardrobes during the summertime, as they feature a simple and comfy design whilst keeping you feeling breezy when it’s hot out. Playsuits can be a great alternative to the shirt and shorts combo and work a treat covering a cute bikini.
H&M have some perfect playsuits for summer, like this V-Neck Playsuit available in red and black floral or this Playsuit With A Belt available in khaki green. Pick any one of these up for your summer wardrobe from H&M at Angel Central.
Maxi dresses were made for long walks on the beach and romantic strolls at night, and for looking great while doing so. They often feature beautiful and intricate designs, making you stand out in a crowd and their length comes in handy when the sun goes down.
Monsoon have a wide selection of breathtaking maxi dresses in their store including this wonderful Jordana Animal Print Halter Dress or this Kim Embellished Maxi Dress. Be sure to call in store to see the full range.
Denim jackets make for the perfect summer outwear as they look just as good off as they do on. During a warm day sling it over your shoulder or wrap it around your waist and when the night comes in, you’ve got a jacket that will not only keep you warm but will look great too.
One of our favourite styles, and also a huge trend at the moment, is to mix a denim jacket with a dress and boots for a powerful summery look.
Now that the sun is shining, it’s time to put those jeans away and get those legs out!
Shorts go with almost any look, and really get you in the summer mood. Available in a range of different styles, patterns and materials, there’s so much flexibility when trying to create a great look and they will keep you nice and cool through the warm, sunny days.
Protection against the sun is no joke, but who says you can’t look great while keeping safe?
There’s a different hat for each kind of outfit, and finding the right combo is essential. Floppy hats work perfectly when paired with dresses or playsuits and baseball caps look fantastic with a shorts and tee combo.
Accessorize has a wide range of great hats and other summer accessories, including this Crochet Stripe Floppy Hat and the suede Jamie Baseball Cap, perfect for festivals! Call into your local Accessorize at Angel Central to get yours today.
No summer look is complete without a great pair of shades to go with it.
The right pair of shades can totally make a look, and work on both a practical and aesthetic level. Finding a stylish pair of sunglasses to go with your outfit will put the finishing touches on your summer look and saves you from a lot of squinting in the bright sunshine.
One of the hardest parts about dressing for summer is the choice of footwear and it can be a stressful task for anyone. Wearing socks when it’s so warm outside isn’t really a very appealing option, so it’s time to go with a breezier option.
Wedges and sandals are the perfect choice for summer footwear, allowing you to stay cool whilst looking fantastic when paired with multiple outfits.
If you’re looking to catch a splash this summer, you’re going to need a new swimsuit.
You might have a perfectly fine bikini from last year, but we think you should treat yourself to something new. Bikinis/swimsuits are perfect for wearing under playsuits and summery dresses, giving you the option to jump straight into the pool whenever you want or grabbing a quick sun tan on the beach.
Whether you’re looking for a bright coloured bikini or a beautiful one-piece swimsuit, Calzedonia have a fit for every shape and size. Some of our personal favourites include the Dalila Bandeau-Style Bikini, Anna V-Neck Swimsuit and Rita Bandeau Bikini.
And that’s our list! If you follow this guide, you should have access to a range of different interchangeable items that will go without almost any look. Stick to breezy, bright clothes and you’ll be set when it comes too long, sunny days.
Before you begin to enjoy some quality time in the sun, be sure to drop by Angel Central to pick up your essential summer wardrobe (and maybe a bite to eat at one of our many great restaurants!).
