Summer is always such an important time for fashion, for the brand designers themselves, to everyday consumers like us.
We can’t quite put our finger on it, but the warmer weather provides endless possibilities for colour, the fit type, and the agonising choice between shorts or trousers.
If you live in the UK, we only get about a month or two of summer, so when it comes, we like to be ready.
With so many great summertime spectator sports like Wimbledon, cricket, or, in the bizarre case of this year, football, we should all strive to find outfits that make us as watched as the sports we’re watching, a la David Beckham: you’ve heard the phrase “Bend it like Beckham”, but with Zilch’s buy now, pay later* for summer outfits, you’ll be able to trend it like him, too.
With Zilch, you can pay in 4 over 6 weeks with 0 interest at thousands of participating stores online.
To pay over time everywhere else, you can use Zilch Anywhere. This allows you to pay only 25% of the total price and a transaction fee upfront, then pay the rest in 3 instalments over 6 weeks*.
By the way, did you know that you can also get 2% cashback in Zilch Rewards when you pay in full? You can use these Zilch Rewards to discount your next shop.

Part of their summer dreaming range, River Island always has a great mix of affordable, yet high-quality stuff. With this chic, yet lowkey white and green chequered dress, you’ll be clad in green, but others will be feeling green.

What does classic, in a fashion sense, mean really? To us, it means you can’t go wrong. A polo from Ralph Lauren is one of the safest bets money can buy.
