With the summer season in full swing, and some of us lucky enough to still be in holiday mode, we want our wardrobe to feel just as easy and relaxed as our mood.
The power of having a seasonal capsule wardrobe means investing in versatile pieces that make us feel good all season long, and that we continue to bring out year after year. When building out our summer wardrobe, we look to incorporate pieces that can be mixed and matched, dressed up or down and are easy to wear and wash, making our wardrobe work smarter and not harder.
Whether we’re heading away, or enjoying some time off at home these are the pieces we’re wearing on repeat this summer season.
A Linen Set
Starting with our ultimate summer essential, a Deiji Studios linen set. Ideal for throwing on over swimwear or lounging around, a linen set makes for a versatile summer wardrobe staple. The best thing about purchasing a set - you can wear the pieces together for a ready-to-go outfit, or mix and match them separately with other pieces in your wardrobe to multiply your outfit options.
Next up, it goes without saying that a dress is a classic summer staple. Easy to throw on and go, we find ourselves reaching for loose, easy-wearing dresses in natural fabrications when the temperature rises. Keep it classic with simple silhouettes like this linen midi dress by Dominique Healy or for something that will take you effortlessly from day to night, this black maxi dress by Hyde & Stone.
An essential addition to any summer outfit is a pair of simple sandals to wear on repeat. We find that sandals effortlessly bridge the gap between casual and dressy, while still maintaining a level of comfortability. In our opinion all you need are a classic black and lighter neutral shade of sandals to wear with any summer look. Keep it simple with a slide on sandal or elevate the look with an ankle strap style. Either way, investing in a quality pair of timeless summer sandals is our choice to last for this summer season and beyond.
Classic swimwear that makes us feel great is an absolute essential for the summer season. Whether you’re a one piece or a bikini fan, opt for timeless silhouettes in good quality fabrications that will last beyond just one season. Form and Fold make the best quality swim focused on D-G cup sizes, and Matteau will forever be out go-to for silhouettes we know we'll love more many seasons to come.
While it may not seem like the most obvious choice for summer, denim is something we love to reach for year round. In the summer months, we love wearing lighter shades and looser silhouettes, such as the Slvrake London Jean in Clear Skies or the Slvrlake Grace Jean in White to stay cool and feel fresh. Mix your denim with lightweight tops and flowy blouses for the perfect elevated summer outfit that is keeping on theme with our holiday dressing mood.
