This Year’s Summer Wardrobe Staples
Keeping up to date with the latest trends can be confusing. Hits on the catwalk one year can turn into a joke within months so how can you make sure your summer wardrobe remains stylish? By simply grabbing some staple items, you can take your wardrobe to a whole new level of glam – who said looking good had to be hard?
Hats are always a difficult one. If you get it right then, you’ve got a staple for life, but if you get it wrong, then it can verge on disastrous. However, there are some rules you can follow to make sure you get the perfect hat for you, and the season. A wide-brimmed hat can do wonders. It can add character to a basic top and shorts combo while also protecting you from the sun. Pragmatic and fashionable - a dream combination. For the men out there who are feeling adventurous, why not brave a trilby? You’ll be sure to stand out of the crowd while looking like a fashion connoisseur.
No summer wardrobe is complete without a pair of well-fitting shorts. Know your size before shopping and make sure that they’re not too baggy or too tight – ill-fitting shorts are rarely forgiving. Treat yourself to something high in quality when buying a new pair, such as Dickies shorts, as a good pair of shorts can be timeless. Get your legs out with pride, and you’ll stay cool and stylish all summer long.
Just like a good summer hat, sunglasses can take an outfit to a whole new level. Plain sunglasses are now a thing of the past – 2017 is the year of being unique. With even designer brands taking note and updating their ranges to include slightly bizarre frames, it makes sense to update your collection too. From John Lennon inspired glasses to vintage tortoise shell frames, there’s a pair out there to suit every personality. Grab yourselves some new sunglasses and get ready to boost your specs’ appeal.
Summer style and floral prints go hand in hand, especially in 2017. With some of the biggest designers showcasing head to toe wallpaper print outfits, it’s a guaranteed staple for your summer wardrobe. If going for only floral prints seems daunting, just take inspiration from the look and inject some into your style – you could even combine some of the staples, getting floral sunglasses or a floral summer hat.
Wear it White
White has made it back this year. From crisp white shirts for men to long, floaty white dresses for women, there’s a little something for everyone. White is a colour most of us can pull off well. Not only will it make your summer tan stand out, but it’s also incredibly flattering when it’s not too tight. Edge it up by pairing it with chunky black wedges or keep it flirty and feminine by sticking to brown and wooden accessories. Whichever way you choose to wear it, white items in your summer wardrobe will keep you stylish.
