Happy Saturday Gals!
I hope you all have some lovely things plans for the weekend. I for one hope to head out over the weekend!
Today on the blog I am talking all about the summer essentials that will keep all those wardrobes up to date.
If you are anything like me, you too are always hyped to buy the latest and greatest trends. But a well-balanced wardrobe also includes a combination of timeless essentials that won’t go out of style. So this summer I am going to help you to make sure your closets are full with fashion staples that we can wear for years to come.
Once you’ve rounded up the basics, it’ll be easier than ever to get dressed and mix and match items. So have a read to make sure you have these key summer staples.
1.The White Tee
The white T-shirt may not be the most exciting piece of clothing, but it is one of the most versatile especially this SS18. The simple summer style can partner with nearly everything and look great. So, whether you’re rocking a midi skirt, underneath a strappy dress or with your jeans, you can never go wrong with this staple piece.
2. Wonderful Wedges
When you want a dressier summer shoe, wedges and block heel sandals are practical and on trend, and neutrals are definitely way to go. What’s nice about these styles is they’re easy to walk in and offer more stability than a stiletto while still elongating your legs.
3. The Reliable White Trainers
Keep your feet looking and feeling fresh this summer with a pair of white sneakers. The minimalistic shoe is a must-have style and it is perfect for both busy days and lazy weekends.
4. A Pretty Tea Dress
Whether you’re heading out for the day, for evening drinks or to your favourite cafe for brunch, a tea dress makes an excellent outfit choice. The chic and simple style is perfect for keeping you feeling cool and looking effortlessly elegant both dressed up and down like I have shown.
5. Straw Hat
Protect your skin from the sun’s harsh rays while looking great this summer with the help of a straw hat. Perfect for the beach or a picnic, a straw hat can put a fashionable finishing touch on countless warm weather looks.
6. The Perfect Sunnies
There’s no better way to finish off a stylish summer outfit than with some sleek shades. While there are plenty of styles to try, none will ever beat the ideal pair for your face shape. So, whether you rock a classic pair of aviators or look chic in a cat eye design, embrace your personal version of the perfect sunglasses with pride. I tend to wear many budget style glasses but the ones I am wearing in this shoot are from Prada at Brown Thomas.
7. Basket Bag (My Obsession!)
Basket bags have been “a thing” for the past while and has become a must-have accessory for designers, fashionistas, and celebs (just scroll down your Instagram feeds to see how many bloggers, Insta-celebrities have been spotted carrying a straw bag at Coachella and just everywhere!).
8. The Trusty Denim Jacket
I has become much a part of our closets as a checked blazer. But it can get a little, well, boring. It’s not that we don’t love this wardrobe staple it’s that we can run out of ways to make it feel fresh and interesting. During the colder months, we can also be tempted to throw it out which I have done when doing my wardrobe detox, regretting it later when it’s the summer and want it for every summer outfit. So make sure to keep them even if it gets a little rugged as that just ask character.
Oh, yes, the dreaded swimming suit, having a well-fitting bathing suit is a must. I know not too many people enjoy shopping for swim wear but it must be done. If you are a little bustier, I would always recommend a suit with an underwire or built in bra. Vertical stripes are always very flattering and a pop of colour will always make you stand out while pool side!
10. The Classy Cover-up
Cover-ups don’t always need to look like a kaftan. An open white shirt or floral button down dress will have you going to the beach feeling sexy and stylish.
