Summer has well and truly arrived bringing hot days, warm evenings, beach visits, parties and that pesky question “what should I wear?” as you open your wardrobe. To ensure you stay cool but look hot all through the warmer months, here are eight summer essentials that are must-haves for your wardrobe.
1. The Party Dress
Glam up your summer and look gorgeous this party season with the perfect party dress. Whether it is a contoured sheath dress with a contrasting waistband to give you an hourglass shape, a fitted peplum dress or a feminine lacy number, just make sure you choose a dress that suits your shape and makes you feel confident.
2. The Sheer Shirt
Dress up your jeans this summer with a sheer shirt and strappy heels. There are some gorgeous and classy sheer tops that will give you an elegant yet sexy summer evening look.
3. The Wide-Brimmed Hat
Aside from covering up a bad hair day and looking super elegant, a wide-brimmed hat will keep you sun safe all summer – what’s not to love?
4. The Maxi-Dress
The maxi-dress is still a must this summer and the great news is that they’ve only gotten better. So dust off last year’s dresses and add some variety to your wardrobe with the chicer and more glamorous versions this season is giving us.
5. The Pointed-Toe Flat
The pointed-toe flat gives you all the practicality of the ballet flat with a smarter and more elegant look. With a variety of options to choose from, closed-in, sling-back or strappy, you are bound to find a pointed-toe flat that will be the perfect accompaniment to your summer wardrobe.
6. The Beach Bag
A beach tote is a must this summer and should be big enough to fit those beach essentials like your glamorous bikini or one piece, sunscreen, sunglasses and towel so you are ready to hit the beach at a moment’s notice. Your beach bag is the perfect opportunity to experiment with the brighter colours and more stand out patterns that are in this summer, so have a little fun with it.
7. The T-Shirt
Whether it is fitted or loose, structured or casual, a few good quality T-shirts are a must. Choose designs and colours that can be dressed up and dressed down so you can wear it over and over again while still having a different look each time.
8. Neon Accessories
Don’t be scared to add a little bit of neon to your outfit this summer, it’s in and it goes perfectly with basic wardrobe staples and colours. Invest in a neon bag or shoes to really make your outfit pop.
