The feeling is in the air summer is on its way! That means it’s time to get your summer wardrobe sorted. Summer clothing means finding the right pieces to keep you cool during the sweltering heat yet stylish to where during the day and night.
Printed dresses are always a summer staple. Easy to wear, they keep you cool and look good. Look for floaty, lightweight fabrics, and styles that aren’t too tight. This summer is not the season for blending in. It’s all about bold, bright colours. But if you want it to stand the test of time, opt for colours that never go out of fashion like pink, orange or purple. A purple polka dot dress is one to try on for size. Throwing a belt around your waist is quite flattering and can transform your look. Look for leather belts as they will last better than synthetic. For the most comfortable belt, look for one with stretch in it, like these genuine leather stretch belts.
Sun dresses are also a summer staple. Longer hemlines that sit at or below the knee are flattering and will keep you cool on those scorching hot days. Plus they are so versatile you can dress them up or down with a nice pair of strappy sandals. Throw on a sun hat and you’ll feel like you’re on a summer vacation, even if you’re not!
Kaftan tops are always stylish and they are lightweight so you can wear them even on the hottest of summer days. Super flattering on all figures, a kaftan top will take you from the beach to dinner in a breeze.
Skirts make a nice change from pants in summer and if your legs don’t look like they did when you were 20 anymore, then you probably don’t want to be wearing denim short shorts! Try a breezy skirt like this polka dot skirt. Look for longer hems, and super flattering A-Line cuts. Tuck a t-shirt in; add a belt and throw on some cute sandals and you have summer dressing sorted. Or look for an A-Line denim skirt. Denim is always in fashion, outlasting just about every other trend
The lace trend picked up momentum in winter, and is hanging around for summer. A top with a lace feature like this lace camisole is an easy, chic way to add a little lace to your look.And finally, what is summer without the beach? If the thought of a bikini makes you run for cover, there are lots of great options around like this slimming swimsuit. A fit that flatters and a cut that covers will leave you feeling confident and carefree all summer long!
Now you’ve got your summer essential pieces, get out there and enjoy the sun!
