WITH Glasgow basking in summer sunshine, the high summer collections have arrived at Buchanan Galleries at the perfect time.

Buchanan Galleries is packed with the biggest names in retail and is home to a great selection of exclusive stores - including the city's only stand-alone branches of Mango, Joy, Fred Perry, Warehouse, Oasis, Phase Eight and bareMinerals.

Oasis has just revamped their store in Buchanan Galleries with a swanky new shopfit, and the new collection features feminine and fashion-forward pieces such as floral playsuits and jacquard prints.

The high street brand has upped their game and offer perfect summer pieces for Glasgow shoppers.

H&M is a one-stop shop for all the family.

Highlights of the women's collection include bohemian blouses, maxi dresses and distressed denim.

For kids, there is an array of pretty printed sundresses for girls and funky T-shirts and shorts for boys.

The key look for men at H&M this season is a preppy look with nautical elements, so snap up polo-shirts, chino shorts and deck shoes.

Buchanan Galleries first opened its doors in 1999, and has gone from strength to strength over the past 15 years.

The recent £70 million development of Buchanan Quarter included the creation of 11 new retail units which are filled with high street stalwarts such as Gap, Paperchase and Office.

Buchanan Quarter is also home to Scotland's first Forever 21 store, which is spread out over three floors and 60,000 square foot of retail space.

One of the best family stores in Buchanan Galleries is John Lewis, which has everything you need for to kit out your home and your family for the summer.

If you fancy taking a trip to the seaside or having a family tea party, head to John Lewis to pick up the relevant accessories.

Enjoy the summer sun and shop later this season with stores open to 7pm Monday to Saturday and 8pm on Thursday giving you more time to shop for this season's essentials.
