Wednesday Wishlist: rediscovering Bershka


The first Bershka purchase I ever made was in London last year on a whirlwind weekend trip for my 21st birthday. I’d heard of the retailer before but never really delved into what they had to offer until I spent a good half hour in the shop admiring the minimal and statement pieces. After that, I was browsing the site near enough every week. I do think being up close and personal with clothing enables you to get more of a perspective on what they look like (and encourages you to head to the fitting rooms with your arms ready to break) but online shopping is just effective, and means you can shop from the comfort of your own home in your pyjama bottoms and a face full of pizza. Bonus! 

It’s been a while since I had a Bershka fix so I decided to visit the website the other day. That resulted in around 20 tabs opened ready to drown my already visibly low bank balance (whoops!). They have some beautiful spring/summer designed stock, along with the perfect formal dresses for a more dressy occasion in the sunshine. As May has approached, my mind is focusing on the festival inspired gear and with Bershka being so reasonably priced, it’s ideal for stocking up on your wardrobe. Fringing, pom poms, gladiator sandals and delicate jewellery are some of my favourite details, along with off the shoulder casual wear which adds some prettiness to a basic. I’m planning on attending absolutely zero amount of festivals this year bur that doesn’t mean I can’t get excited about the fete fashion. TV coverage of all the live shows have got me covered!

Are you attending any festivals this year? Are you a regular Bershka shopper?
