Summer is finally gracing us with its presence and because of that, many of us are starting to think about our summer wardrobe and collect a few bits to ensure that we look and feel our best. Summer means that fashion can be a little more adventurous, and you can try new things rather than sticking with your usual jeans and jumper combination. Whilst the weather is a little hit and miss, you wardrobe doesn’t need to be. Here are some of the things to consider from jewellery and accessories to the staple items for your wardrobe. You’re welcome!
Let’s Start with the Jewellery
There is no denying that jewellery can be a statement, it can be a subtle addition, and it can even have the ability to turn an outfit from day to night with just a few tweaks. Not all of us embrace jewellery as much as we should, and summer is the ideal time to experiment with it. It might even be that we like the idea of a new piercing, which opens up more options such as tragus jewellery to add to our collection. But for the summer must haves that you can pick up on the high street here are a few suggestions.
The oversized ring is a trend that hasn’t gone away. Stacking rings and making a big statement is the way forward for our fingers these days. A large ring can add a pop of colour to any outfit. You may choose to stick with just a metal colour – rose gold is still a popular choice, or consider a gemstone or a brighter design. Whatever you decide, make sure you have a few on your dresser for the summer ahead.
It’s not just about wearing one statement bracelet at the moment; it’s all about stacking them up. So if you like your small dainty pieces, this trend will still work for you. Just add a few to your wrist instead of just the one. If you don’t mind big and bold bracelets then still stack up two or more. It can make a real statement to your summer outfit.
You should own at least one statement necklace. These are the perfect solution to add some sparkle and jazz to your outfits. It doesn’t matter if you are wearing the plainest of clothes, a statement necklace will dress it up. These can be full of sparkly gemstones, or a plain metal. Whatever you decide, the bigger, the better will always work with a statement necklace. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone with this. You won’t regret it.
The last thing to consider are your earrings. A practical yet stylish choice would be to stick with a stud type, rather than something dangling down. Especially if you are looking to accessorize your day look. A nice bright gemstone stud would be the perfect choice for a summer look. If you decide to go down the statement necklace route, studs will compliment this perfectly.
Next Up, the Accessories
The next thing to start thinking about would be the accessories that you have in your wardrobe, that can compliment your outfit choice. Again with a few simple changes and tweaks, accessories such as shoes and bags can transform a look and take you from casual to chic. Here are some of the things to consider ready for summer.
The Bag Choices
Bags are always going to be a great addition to your wardrobe, and sometimes the bigger the better. After all, during the summer you have additional things that you may want to take around with you such as sunglasses, sun lotion and a hat. A simple trick to take your day outfit and to make it more appropriate for an evening out is to simply change the bag from a large tote day option to a small clutch for the night. Also when it comes to bags, bright colours and metallics are definitely a trend to watch this summer,
Summer shoes are a much simpler option than winter. With winter you can have endless boots, different heel sizes and still get away with the strappy stilettos for a night out. In summer, you crave comfort, so sandals are always going to be a safe option. However, recently the trend of white trainers and maxi skirts and dresses is proving popular, so you may want to consider adding a pair to your wardrobe.
Belts, Hats and Scarves
Last of all, summer doesn’t mean you have to forget about all of the other accessories that you may love in the winter. Belts are still great for showcasing your waist, especially in a maxi dress. Hats are an essential for the summer, and you can even still wear a light scarf if you want to jazz up a top.
The Clothings Essentials
Of course, you will already know that maxi dresses, skirts – short or long, and shorts are going to be huge staple pieces in your wardrobe. These tend to be the items that you can wear every summer without feeling like you are not fashionable or looking great. So here are some of the other essentials that you may have forgotten about.
The Denim Jacket
Perhaps you might want to think about making an investment in a denim jacket. It can be such a great way to accessorise an outfit and perfect for when the summer breeze kicks in. The beauty of one of these jackets is that it tends to go with anything and everything, so it is the perfect addition to your wardrobe.
The jumpsuit is a great alternative for an outfit compared to some of the more obvious choices like a dress or a skirt. It is flattering, can be worn as trousers, crops or shorts, and is a versatile and comfortable piece of clothing for the summer. There are some great options online if you fancy making a purchase. They are also perfect for day or evening wear, and can be dressed up or dressed down easily.
So there you have it. Let’s hope that some of these options help you to style up your wardrobe this summer and feel confident in your outfit choices moving forward.
