A Few Must Have Wardrobe Essentials – Summer 2022

Summers are always an exciting time for fashion – fun, vibrant colours, flirty and flowing silhouettes, statement prints – we love it all! We live for fashion trends, but believe that true style starts with nailing the staples. Our take on wardrobe staples is everything that’s classic, functional and versatile – but NEVER boring.

Here are 10 must-haves for every summer wardrobe:

White T-shirt
When it comes to women’s tops, we’re starting with the most basic but ever-so-versatile white T-shirt. This is undoubtedly a wardrobe staple because it looks good with everything from blue jeans to black pants to a patterned skirt. The humble white T-shirt is like your wardrobe superhero because you can wear it on days when you’re finding it hard to piece an outfit together. Find one that fits you well and makes you feel great because, trust us, you’ll be reaching for it over and over.

White Sneakers
Sneakers can be worn with skirts, dresses, shorts and jeans. Not only are they super comfortable, they instantly add a laid-back, effortlessly chic, streetwear vibe to your look. WIN-WIN. Invest in a comfortable pair and you can wear them all year round.

Shirt Dress
Elevate your summer days with chic shirt dresses. Whether you have an important zoom meeting to attend, or lunch with your family, or you’re catching up with a friend over coffee, a shirt dress is always a great choice to look stylish and elegant while staying cool.

Beautiful Hair Accessories
Although the summertime comes with many lovely things (long days, ice-cream, mangoes etc.), it’s hard to ignore the heat and humidity that sometimes makes it impossible to leave our hair down. We just want to keep it out of our face and tie it up! So why not make it cute? Hair accessories in fun prints and exciting summer-y colours can add an extra element of oomph to your look. Also, they’re super trendy right now. We have a stunning collection of upcycled scrunchies and headbands made in our beautiful printed fabric that will just steal your heart! You can also use your favourite scarf and tie it around your ponytail.

Wide Leg Pants
Let’s be real, as much as we love our skinnies, hot summer days call for a much more relaxed option. Enter: comfortable wide leg pants that are cool, breezy and just perfect to wear in the summer. Luckily wide leg and palazzo pantshave been a huge trend for a while and we’ve been seeing them everywhere – on our favourite celebrities and fashion bloggers. If we haven’t managed to convince you already, here are 3 ways to wear wide pants that are completely different but equally chic.

A) Wear with a fitted crop top and sneakers or flat sandals to keep it effortlessly cool. (We also love this look for a vacation).

B) Tuck in a relaxed shirt into your high waisted wide leg pants and put on some heels for an elegant and dressed up look.

C) Pair them with your favourite white kurta and add some chunky silver toned jewellery for a boho-chic vibe.

Sounds pretty basic, right? Well, yes and no. While it’s a given that we need sunglasses pretty much all year round, the plethora of designs available in the market coupled with ever-changing trends can be super confusing (are cat-eye sunnies back?). We suggest finding a pair that works for you in every way so you’ll always wear them with love.
While it may be tempting to buy whatever frame shape is trending right now, your sunnies should complement your face shape, fit you well and make you feel fabulous. Great sunglasses not only add to your look, they are also very important for protecting your eyes against UV rays. Remember to always buy sunglasses that have lenses with UV protection, oh and side note – always wear sunscreen!

Midi Skirts
Midi-skirts are always charming in the summer, but this summer’s newest staple is a midi skirt. Chic, flattering and comfortable – they are everything you want in your summer pieces. True multi-taskers, they can be worn casually, professionally or to go out in the evening. Wear them with a T-shirt or tank top with flats for a day time look, with sandals and a shirt for work or a dressy top and heels for a night on the town.

Maxi Dresses
Maxi dresses, also known as floor length dresses, have been an iconic piece of clothing since the 1960’s. Even though they’ve always had a permanent place in fashion and trends, we’ve been spotting them everywhere recently! A great quick fix to look put together in a hurry, the Maxi is also a comfortable, impactful and versatile dress for women. It’s the perfect choice for summers, since it’s breezy, billowy and helps you keep cool while being dressed to the nines.

Is any summer wardrobe complete without shorts? Shorts are very functional – but they’re also great for that effortlessly cool ‘model off-duty’ vibe. Sporty, sassy, casual, fun – you can pretty much go for any vibe with this versatile piece of clothing, and that’s why we love them!

Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance.
