Have you got your summer staples yet?

Have you got your summer staples yet?

Yes, summer seems to have finally made an appearance (well it did yesterday!). In the hope of it continuing I’ve begun going through my summer wardrobe and making a note of a few new purchases I need to either replace or compliment what I already have.

Whilst I like to keep an eye on the current trends I’m not a slave to fashion so summer dressing for me is fairly simple. One thing I love about summer is saying goodbye to skinny jeans and hello to some great cotton chinos.

This season I’m so delighted as Gap have brought out the ‘girlfriend’ chino (the perfect summer staple). I’ve gone for navy and beige – beautiful colours to mix with tan, black and white. For me the more pastel versions tend to be less chic and versatile but the choice is yours!

Here are just some of the ways I’ll be wearing mine:

  • with a white linen shirt and a great pair of tan flats (or espadrilles) - an effortless look that suits everyone;
  • with a navy & white stripe t-shirt, fitted denim jacket and great wedges – cool and stylish – job done;
  • with a simple vest top, suit jacket and strappy shoes a look that mixes smart/casual beautifully;

I hope this may inspire you to give them a try. However you choose to wear them – enjoy!

Have a great week-end and feel free to share this post.
