Summer Wardrobe Essentials

SUMMER IS ALMOST HERE

Summer has almost arrived and that means throwing chunky knits and winter boots to the back of the wardrobe and reaching for those favourite summer pieces. Over the past few months I've picked up a few key pieces that I can't wait to wear all summer long and as it's officially starting to feel a little more like summer in England (despite the odd bit of rain), it's time for me to crack out these pieces. Some of these pieces are especially tailored for the holidays I have planned this summer. Remember that holidays in the sun are a time to experiment so much more with your style and pieces you wouldn't normally go for on a day-to-day basis, so I'm expanding my horizons with my wardrobe essentials for summer.




CRAVING COLOUR
Adding bright blocks of colour to your summer wardrobe is perfect for tropical vacations and expressing yourself. Summer is a time to show off your style and who you are, and bold colours are becoming increasingly popular as the neon trend begins to die down. A block of colour is the perfect way to refresh your wardrobe in time for summer too.






LINEN LOVE
Linen is the perfect fabric for hot summers, it's so lightweight and makes high temperatures much more bearable. Linen dresses are everywhere at the moment and they're so easy to transfer from a sight-seeing daytime look to a stylish evening dress all with a simple change of shoes.


OFF-THE-SHOULDER
This is a trend that will always be in our hearts and over the past few summers I've collected plenty of the off-the-shoulder sundresses that go perfectly with statement earrings for the evening or even stylish trainers for a day trip.


CLASSIC PIECES
I've collected so many classic pieces over the past few months to add to bold and colourful outfits. Pairing something simple with something bold means that that central, bold piece will stand out more. One of my favourites is this lightweight black dress that can be paired with a light blue denim jacket to create an everyday look that's also comfortable and chic for the airport.

















LOUD PRINTS
It's no surprise that as summer rolls around, so do floral and tropical prints. Printed pieces are so vibrant and bold, I love this boxy pleated (left) and it's the perfect length for the summer. Whilst the top below is easy to pair with classic denim shorts.

Aaaaand those are my wardrobe essentials for summer: it's all about lightweight fabrics, unique detailing and being bold. Where are you headed to this summer? What are your wardrobe essentials for this season?

  4. Some lovely picks here, I'm so boring with my seasonal wardrobe! I rarely make any major changes because I tend to be quite cold even in summer, the most adventurous I get is adding some more lighter colours x

  14. This summer, everyone is so excited to go outdoors-at the beach, in the pool, on the hillside, and just about anywhere that has sunlight to play under.

  18. I've pretty much been wearing athletic clothes on the daily and trying to wear as little as possible hahh. I wish it was cool enough to warrant throwing on a light denim jacket :P -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's

  19. It's best to snap them up early so you're prepared for those sudden, surprisingly warm spring days as well.
