My Top 5 Summer Wardrobe Transformers
As many of you know, when it comes to summer dressing, I’m all for keeping it simple. Summer is a time when many women don’t want to spend a fortune on clothing (particularly in the UK!) but they still want the “cool and stylish” look. I find, if I have these five items in my wardrobe I know I can achieve the look without having to continually buy new outfits. Read on to find out what they are…
The Glamorous Shades
Let’s face it, sunglasses can be our saving grace (summer or winter)! When we’re tired, hung-over, or just need to add a touch of glamour to an every-day look – cool shades make all the difference. The great news is there are some fantastic versions on the high-street. Jigsaw have these amazing ones which I love and it’s worth remembering retro or cats-eye frames are often the most flattering whatever your face-shape.
The Perfect Summer Wedges
If you do not currently own a pair of tan wedges – you need to.They are incredibly versatile and make any outfit look more luxurious and expensive. These stunning wedges from Gap and Hobbs are the perfect height for long midi skirts, cuffed jeans and shirt dresses.
The Iconic White T-shirt
What can I say – it’s the staple we all need and yet it is often the hardest to find in terms of quality and shape. Jigsaw, Whistles and Gap offer some great options and these two versions (scooped and round are particular favourites of mine). Wear with everything from jeans to pleated skirts, wide leg chinos and statement evening skirts. A great white t-shirt just works!
The “Grown Up” Summer Basket
I say “grown-up” because many basket totes I see in summer seem to have flowers, pom-poms or just silly slogans on them. I’m all for not growing-up BUT I would opt for a simple version like this one from The White Company – very chic, stylish and the perfect size.
The Cool Statement Earrings
Whether you opt for gold, silver or a fabulous tortoiseshell pair, they will add a cool twist to anything from a white t-shirt and jeans to a cotton maxi dress. These are from J Crew and Jaeger – both excellent for contemporary, stylish jewellery.
Enjoy the sunshine and do get in touch if you need help creating your perfect summer wardrobe – once you have it, summer dressing is a joy.
Have a great week-end and feel free to share this post.
