Our pick of the best summer buys from the high street chain.

Dorothy Perkins may previously have held the reputation of the slightly less cool, older sister brand of fashion-forward Topshop, but in recent seasons it's shrugged off that label with its on-trend offerings.

The seventies has been an inescapable presence on the catwalks and high street from spring/summer and DP has really taken it on with a new premium line of suede pieces, ideal for invoking the spirit of the seventies.

Whether you want to go for a head-to-toe look or just accessorise there's a covetable collection of pieces to cover all your suede shoppping needs.

One area the brand has always excelled is with footwear; from pool sliders to lace-up block heel sandals, there's every type of shoe and at price points that won't cause too much of a dent in your bank balance.
