10 staples no summer wardrobe should be without


With the warmer weather finally making an appearance it’s time to prepare our summer wardrobes to better suit the season and our lightened moods. There are many pending trends at the moment so the choices are endless. However, it is always great to have a few trusted items in your wardrobe that you can come back to and mix and match whenever you please.

  1. White Lace Dress

White is going to be big this summer with materials such as lace leading the way forward.
A classic and simple white lace dress will be perfect for the summer because it’s elegant, feminine and bang on trend. You can dress it up with heels and a clutch or dress it down with your favourite pair of flats and a denim jacket (which is also back in style).

  1. Metallic Flats

A pair of metallic flats combined with a stylish wrist accessory from TicWatches will add a touch of class to your summer wardrobe. Metallic tone flats are simple to pair with, making them not only light on the feet but also a great mix and match item.

  1. Maxi Dress/Skirt

No summer wardrobe would be anywhere near complete without its own maxi dress. It is as popular as it was in 2014 and the maxi skirts are also really versatile, light and perfect for both daytime and night-time looks.

  1. Trench Coat

Even though it’s the summer, it’s still the UK which means unpredictable weather and lots of summer rain showers. A trench coat is the perfect solution because it’s stylish, classy and looks great with pretty much anything.

  1. Crop Top

Crop tops seem to be everywhere lately and are popular because they represent youth and fun. They look great with skinny jeans and show off your waist though you’ll need body confidence to carry this look off.

  1. Florals

Florals have come back this summer in the form of dresses, skirts, trousers, tops – you name it and there is probably a version covered with floral print. Add a piece to your summer wardrobe to keep up with this lasting trend.

  1. Button-down Shirt

A button-down shirt is surprisingly comfortable and perfect for summer because it’s light and versatile. According to Huffington Post, the ‘classic collared shirt can easily adapt,’ with ‘light fabrics, like sheer chiffon and easy linens, bright colours, and bold prints,’ being the most popular choices.

  1. Leggings

Every girl needs a pair of leggings. They are great for lounging about the house or hitting the shops with friends. Change it up a little and opt for printed leggings for the summer or khaki ones which are also popular this year.

  1. Jumpsuit

Jumpsuits have been gracing the catwalks lately and if you want something that will last you through from day to night then you will definitely want to add one to your summer wardrobe. Clench in the waist with a belt and pair them with classy heels to dress up your look.

  1. 70’s Skirt

Sticking to the popular trend, a 70’s style skirt is the perfect staple to add to your wardrobe this summer. According to Vogue, a maxi Seventies skirt is your best option featuring either a slit at the front, patchwork, camel suede or pocket-front style.
