Seasonal Staples: Summer Fashion Edit

The fashion essentials that will keep your wardrobe current each season



Summer is officially here! And temperatures are definitely rising. It’s the time of the year where I tend to switch up to lighter breathable fabrics, such as cotton and linen. I am excited to say that these natural fibers are everything but boring. Fashion designers and brands have found creative and fashionable ways to elevate these lightweight materials so you can wear them all summer long, staying fresh and comfortable without sacrificing style.

In today’s blog post I want to share with you my summer fashion staples.

These clothing pieces are ideal to get you through the warmer days, looking and feeling great. Because of their classic style, these items will give you interchangeable options to style your looks and most importantly to get the most wear out of them, whilst staying on trend.

THE STAPLES

1. Basic T-shirt  

This is actually an all year-round staple for any summer outfit, you’ve got to love a basic t-shirt. I love mine when they are 100% organic cotton and plain. They are comfortable, versatile and a no-brainer that can be paired with pretty much everything. You can easily dress the basic t-shirt up with a blazer or keep the overall outfit, cool and trendy with denim shorts, skirts, and sneakers.

2. Denim Shorts

I literally live in these all summer long. I have these very same denim shorts in both the blue and black colours, and also other denims shorts in a variety of cuts and shapes but I must say, the paper bag denim shorts are my favorite ones! They fall a little longer and hug curves really well, perfect to disguise any trouble areas. High-waisted versions are a great option to wear with crop tops without feeling too exposed.

3. Linen Blazer 

Linen is a fresh airy natural fiber that really screams summer to me. A must-have piece in any woman’s wardrobe! It immediately elevates any outfit. Try pairing it with denim shorts and a plain t-shirt for an effortless cool look. Wear it in combination with matching Bermuda shorts for a “Pretty Woman” vibe and over dresses for an elegant touch.

4. The Slip-on dress

Perfect for those summer nights. A slip-on dress is a sexy yet elegant wardrobe essential, light and easy to wear during the warm weather season. You can combine the dress with a blazer or light knitted cardigan to make it more daytime appropriate.

5. Lightweight Trousers

A pair of lightweight breathable trousers add a sophisticated factor to your outfit. They are a great option to wear for a dressier occasion and a good alternative whenever wearing a dress isn’t an option.

6. Jumpsuits

I love jumpsuits. They are such a practical and versatile all-in-one outfit that I can easily transition from day to night with just switching my shoes and bag. Mix up your looks by pairing your jumpsuit with flats, heels, or even sneakers.

No matter the cut or length, when it comes to the perfect summer dress, it’s all about the different textures and fabrics such as knit, lace, ruffles and embroidery. These are details that have a very distinctive feminine and romantic factor, perfect for sunshine season. Try combining your outfit with other summer staples like flat sandals, a hat and a basket handbag for a romantic look.

11. Footwear

This is the time of the year where you just need to let your feet breathe and sandals are a necessity in your summer wardrobe. Leather slides are practical, comfortable, and super chic as well. You will be wearing these all summer long.

White sneakers are always welcome. I wear them all the time. Especially when I want an outfit to feel more relaxed and casual but cool. They are easy to pair and a dream to walk around in.

And of course, we can’t speak about summer without mentioning the famous espadrilles. Comfortable and feminine, these are always a convenient option and perfect to pair with dresses, trousers, shorts or skirts. The wedged heel version is the ideal choice if you’re looking to wear a comfortable and supportive heel without worries.
