There are certain things I always like to have in my wardrobe for each season and as summer rocks around ( yippee) I am making sure I have my summer staples ready to go.
A grey jumper
Being the UK it is never smart to pack away all your knitwear as the warm weather is by no means guaranteed. I always like to keep a couple of jumpers out and for summer I replace black with grey. I have been sent the most beautiful Celtic and Co V neck Jumper to review and it is absolutely perfect for a summer wardrobe staple. It is made from cotton and wool mix. It is a lovely shape and a slouchy fit that feels relaxed and just perfect for layering. Celtic and Co really do the most lovely women’s knitwear I will definitely be back to look again as Autumn draws in!
A pair of white trousers are a seasonal must-have for me and I love these from The White Company.
I have never seen a summer season when white trousers haven’t been cool, they just look so fresh and they go with absolutely everything, don’t they?
I do adore a pair of gold sandals to instantly glam up summer casuals – these work with shorts, summer dresses and with white trousers. This super simple elegant pair are from H&M and they are a snip of a price too at £12.99!
A sweet summer dress
I also adore a summer dress and one that is really easy to wear always gets my vote. I usually go for white or navy but this red and white polka dot jersey dress form Next really caught my eye this year and it is so cheerful…I just had to have it . They have it in lime and orange too and I am very tempted! I always treat myself to one new dress each summer (not usually 3 though!)
Another fashion essential for summer ( which will go perfectly with the above dress) is a pair of white pumps. I like them bright white and new looking so I never spend too much. These comfy looking beauties from River Island are just perfect for summer and really will go with every outfit.
So there you have it- the five fashion essentials that will see me through the summer. What is on your must-have summer essentials list? Do let me know in the comments below.
