Each season dictates a new fashion style, trends come and go requiring certain types of clothing.
We start to panic when the weather gets warm and scour the racks for some sizzling, but still practical must-have pieces. There are however, some items of a summer wardrobe that always stay in style. Guaranteed to come out every season these basic summer wardrobe staples are an essential part of your spring summer wardrobe.

From bold print tunics to the perfect wedge sandals, these mix-and-match essentials are the basics of your summer dressing and will make updating your look a breeze.

White Jeans

Whether topped by a basic t-shirt and a great blazer or paired with a beautiful floaty blouse. Crisp white jeans make the look feel fresh. The style of the jeans you choose will depend upon your body shape.


Go for a cotton one with a deep V front and side slits to make you look and feel cool. A deep-plunging neckline and chic three-quarter sleeves give a tunic versatile appeal. Wear it on the beach or over skinny jeans for a night out, it’s a great go-to piece.

Big Sunglasses

There’s no reason to sacrifice fashion for function. There are so many fantastic  brands and styles to choose from, go for something that flatters your face shape and coloring. Opt for a great-looking pair that blocks UVA/UVB rays, and your eyes will thank you for it.

Flat Sandals

Go for a classic colour such as tan, nude or taupe to ensure they work with everything from skirts and dresses to jeans. Why not opt for some sparkle and choose a pair embellished with jewels, great for night time holiday dressing.

Wedge Sandal

Heels that are actually comfy! Go for a simple version in perhaps tan that go from daytime casual to nighttime sexy with ease. My favorites are from Kurt Geiger, Carvela and LK Bennett. You can wear them with literally everything.

Maxi Dress

The fail safe summer staple that flatters every figure, from petite to plus-size. It shows off just enough skin for an effortlessly sleek summer look.

Floral Sundress

This feminine yet bohemian-inspired piece gives a youthful romanticism throughout summer. Pair with flats and an oversize bag, it is also a wonderful piece to travel in.

Tunic Dress

When it’s hot outside, the fewer pieces on your body the better. A formfitting tunic that compliments the body is always chic. Why not add a hit of colour or print and team with simple accessories.

Striped T-shirt

Striped tees are chic and great if you want to make your outfit a little more fun. Wear them with denim shorts, white jeans or under a blazer.

Sheer Blouse

A sheer blouse adds a touch of sophistication to shorts or jeans, perfect for cool summer dressing . Choose a pretty floaty fabric in either bright or pastel block colours or prints. Add flat sandals or dress the look up with wedges and of course don’t forget the new sunnies!

Enjoy simple summer dressing , this is the time to lift your spirits with the new clothes you buy. They should bring you happiness, confidence and above all, make you look and feel fabulous. Happy Shopping girls!
