Keep these in your wardrobe for the summer

Surprisingly, summer is rapidly approaching. And, when you’ve been stuck indoors for far too long, it’s inevitable that you’ve spent the best part of the last few months preparing your next step for when the hot weather arrives, including coming up with summer wardrobe ideas, despite building up a collection of sweatpants and comfy clothing.

Maybe you’ve been daydreaming about wearing whimsical designs, or you’ve resolved to experiment with different ways to wear silk scarves this year. Or maybe you’re now able to treat yourself to your first official shopping spree since the start of the pandemic – or even before. All of those Instagram deep dives will undoubtedly be put to good use eventually, so before the season hits, why not take a little more inspiration into consideration? Follow along for clothing you should be sure to have in your closet this summer.

Flowy Dresses

A dress that moves with the wind is a great way to catch the breeze. Look for something colorful and tiered that can be worn for lunch dates with friends or as a quick coverup after a swim in the ocean. You can pair this with some cute, strappy sandals, or ballerina flats, and you’ll still look – and feel – summery.

Anything Pastel

A soft pastel palette ignores the hot sun rays and is pleasing to the eye. Candy colors aren’t all for children – or millennials. To commemorate the summer solstice, anyone could dress up in a chic mint skirt or a soothing lavender blazer, for a pop of soft color.

Mini Skirts

As it seems, minis are having a big comeback this summer. An asymmetrical hemline will lengthen your legs and highlight your season’s most trendy shoes. Minis are available in a wide range of silhouettes, colors, and floral designs. Regardless of what you choose to wear the skirt with, you’ll be showing off your beautiful legs.

Plaid Pants

Summer is a wonderful time to wear the brightest outfits. Similar to the pastel items, plaid pants will give a pop of different colors to your solids. Make an AC-friendly outfit by matching rainbow plaid or floral bottoms with a cardigan.

Strappy Tops

There’s no avoiding it: this summer, it’s all about the skin. The easiest way to display skin without showing too much is to look for a top with elegant strap work. The dress code includes intricate back detailing, slinky front straps, and tie-fastening drawstrings. This would look great with a mini skirt.
