Summer is that time of year when we all want to up our style game and look our best… but sometimes we need a little bit of guidance. We are here to help you! We have created a list of the 10 things you need in your wardrobe this summer to make it your most chic season ever!
Playsuits are such an easy outfit for almost any occasion this summer – you don’t have to think of a top for bottoms or vice versa. You just put it on and you’re half way there. Day or night, a playsuit works and is a perfect, playful alternative to a dress for summer 2018.
In reality, as much as we all love to imagine summer as hot and sunny 24/7, our weather doesn’t always spoil us. It might not always be hot enough to throw on shorts and a t-shirt or a flowery playsuit but the perfect, weather-appropriate alternative for you this summer is a jumpsuit. Whether it is a pair of denim dungarees or the very in, striped jumpsuits, there is an ideal one for you. Just like playsuits, you can’t get much simpler than this all-in-one.
Sometimes you just want getting dressed to be a thoughtless process. With co-ords you don’t even have to think – they already match… You instantly look put together without having to put in any effort! Long or short, they both work and wil have you looking summer ready in a heartbeat!
4. Wrap Skirt
This summer is all about the bold colours and prints as well as floaty styles of just about anything, be it trousers, jumpsuits, dresses and most other things as well. The perfect piece for your wardrobe to fit all of these trends is a wrap skirt. Whether it is long or short, this piece is a must have in your summer collection. These skirts bring a beautiful girly, youth to any outfit but the best thing about them is that they work with anything. Pair it with a slogan tee and pair of trainers for a ultra-chill look or wear it with a dressier top and sandals to give it a dressier feel. Whatever the purpose, this is a must for summer 2018.
5. Midi Dress
A midi dress is often one of those things that you pick up in a shop and deliberate over whether it is going to suit you or not. I’m telling you that it doesn’t matter. No matter what your shape or height or size, you will find a way to make it work and look gorgeous. A midi dress is fun and flirty for summer. Dress it up or dress it down. Accessorise it. Pair it with a belt and a denim jacket. Whatever you do, this dress style will look great and is a must for you in summer 2018.
6. Wide Leg Trousers
No matter what you’re doing this summer, you need a pair of wide leg trousers in your wardrobe. You might be on a plane, going out for dinner, or in the office, at meetings all day. They are the perfect piece allowing you to make a statement wherever you go. These trousers add so much comfort to your wardrobe while remaining smart and stylish. Whatever your body shape, these trousers will be perfect for you and you will be batting off compliments left, right and centre.
7. Denim Jacket
You might think this is so last year or a little bit boring for your new vibrant wardrobe but don’t worry – this season the game has changed. 2018 has seen denim jackets coming in an array of different colours and you need to get your hands on one. But don’t let this take away from a plain blue denim jacket. They go with anything and everything, making them an everyday piece for you. This is a staple piece of a summer wardrobe that cannot be missed.
8. Rain Coat
Let’s not fool ourselves too much. As much as everything on this list is an essential, we will have those days where it is raining cats and dogs. That doesn’t have to trap us indoors. Raincoats are the perfect answer. It might sound boring but be creative. Find a raincoat that adds to your summer wardrobe rather than something you dread putting on. This will make you fully equipped for summer 2018!
9. Bum Bag
Are you going travelling this summer? Or to any festivals? If so, a bum bag is a definite for summer 2018. But the thing is, even if you’re doing neither of these things, a bum bag is still a must. It is perfect for going somewhere where you only want your phone and money and a couple of small things. It doesn’t matter whether this is for walking around a city or going down to your local shop, this works. Sometimes on a warm day, the last thing you want to carry is a rucksack or handbag so this is the most stylish way to do so.
10. Tote Bag
Women may be globally known for carrying everything in their handbag – extra socks, a hairbrush, books, even used tissues. Sometimes these are all necessities (well, minus the used tissues). Maybe you’re going to the beach or away for the day and you need something that fits more than your money and a lip gloss. A tote bag is perfect for this occasion - a must for this summer.
