Summer is just around the corner. It's time to say goodbye to all your winter outfits and accessories. Time to spice up your closet with clothes that are light, breezy and colourful. With the changing seasons, it is impractical to change your wardrobe each time there is a season transition, so all you need for this summer are the basics. Here’s a rundown of all the pieces of clothing you need to mix and match whole summer long.
Tank Top and Shorts
The best summer wear to beat the heat is a cute tank top and shorts. Nothing is more trendy and practical than having these two items of clothing to keep you comfortable and relaxed. Make sure your tank top and shorts are made from cotton, linen or any material that is breathable. It will allow the air to circulate better and of course, lets you move around freely so it can help you bear the hot summer days.
A good, go to outfit for the summer would be your favourite, comfortable, and regular plain t-shirts. It is a must have to carry on some basic white t-shirts bearing a simple design and logo or t-shirts that are light or pastel coloured. Stay away from dark colours that absorb heat more. Keeping up with the basic colours will allow you to mix and match these easily with your summer shorts and skirts.
Short and Maxi Dresses
Dresses are also a must-have for beach trips and casual dates during the summer. Short summer length dresses are always good picks, but maxi dresses are also making waves as they can be worn both in casual or dressier places. You have to make sure that you pick fabrics that are flowy and light, you may want to gear away from denim or velvet fabrics for your dresses.
Floral prints with vivid colours would always remind us about summer so it would be great to have a few pieces of clothing with this print. Choose bright colours for floral prints to perfectly go with the summer vibes – orange, yellow, pink, light blue and green.
Accessories – Summer Shoes, Bags and Shades
Of course, who would forget that accessories complete any summer look? For footwear, don’t just go for the usual flip flops as you can also opt for bright slip on, strappy sandals, or even printed espadrilles. Having a pair of white sneakers is also a good idea as this summer footwear will go well with your shorts and tank tops. When it comes to bags, you can pick a bright and colourful tote or canvass bags to bring to the beach. On the other hand, pastel handbags would be perfect for everyday wear. Lastly, a good pair of sunglasses is your best friend and probably the essential accessory this summer. There are plenty of options for sizes and shapes, but it doesn’t have to be branded and expensive. Just make sure you pick something basic that can go well with any outfit and something that will serve its purpose, shield your eyes from the scorching sun rays.
