Whilst we all love trends, no summer wardrobe is complete without some statement-packed additions you can use to mix and match with different outfits and create a capsule wardrobe. From simple white tees to flowing midi skirts, there are some key pieces which every summer wardrobe needs. So, if you are looking to create a capsule summer wardrobe this year, then you need to know what these key pieces are. Here are 5 things which you should consider adding to your wardrobe collection so that you can have the most fashionable summer ever.
Classic White T-Shirt
A white t-shirt may not be the most visually striking, but it certainly is the most versatile. A well fitted white t-shirt partners with almost every outfit and looks great on. Whether worn with jeans and trainers or underneath a cami dress, you can’t really go wrong with this staple piece. The key is layering – whether you wear it under something or pair with a statement skirt, there’s nothing this key piece won’t work with!
Mini skirts are long gone, the new summer staple is the midi. Not only are midi skirts flattering and chic, but they are also ideal for keeping cool and comfortable when the weather heats up. When picking one to add to your wardrobe, then be sure to choose one which you love and that you can wear any time, for any occasion. Whether you wear it with heels and a shirt to the office or a casual tee and trainers at the weekend, you’ll welcome this capsule wardrobe piece.
If you ever feel like your outfit is missing something, then it probably is. One of the best and most versatile accessories you can invest in this summer is ladies designer belts. Whether you add to a pair of mom jeans and a tucked in tee or clinch in your waist on a oversized maxi dress, there’s literally nothing that a belt won’t work with. Be sure to get in a neutral colour that will work with everything, such as black or brown, or something which will stand out, like a silver chain belt, to add a little extra something to your outfit.
Lugging around an oversized and bulky handbag in the summer can make you feel hotter than you already are and when you want to add a pop of colour to an outfit, then often a large handbag can be too much. No summer wardrobe is complete without a stylish crossbody bag, no matter the colour. Sure, you can choose bright coloured clothes, but a crossbody bag is a more chic choice and is far more practical. Red, yellow or blue, you’ll be able to pair your bag with numerous outfits in your wardrobe for an instant style boost.
When the weather is warm and humid, then there is nothing worse than the thought of putting on something which is tight and restrictive, as this will only make you feel warmer. So, it is no surprise that maxi dresses are somewhat of a summer wardrobe staple. Long, breezy and stylish, a maxi dress is the perfect thing to wear on hot summer days, whether your heading to a meeting or for brunch. Be sure to pair with a great pair of shoes too – sandals, heels or trainers are the most stylish choices!
