Summertime Wardrobe Essentials

A new season means new outfits, and we couldn’t be more excited about that. But what do you do when the weather’s cold in the morning, hot in the day… and cold again at night? The trick to putting a stylish English Summer outfit together is starting out with chic basics, and then updating your style for the season. Here are our top style tips on what to wear for the Summer:

The key to having the perfect Summer outfit is to start with good Summer basics. If you have a solid wardrobe of essentials, you’ll be able to mix and match with ease. They’ll also provide a stylish Summer outfit you can add accessories to. There is a good chance you could already have some of these essentials in your wardrobe from last year and don’t be afraid to get those back out. Here are a few pieces you should start with:

  • The elevated t-shirt. For a piece that captures effortless cool, look for a t-shirt in a fabric such as neoprene or cashmere that will bring an extra touch of elegance to your outfit.
  • The light jacket. For chilly mornings and nights, a lightweight jacket is the ideal addition to your summer outfit. A trench coat is also a classic, but right now bomber jackets and denim jackets are trending for Summer too.
  • The easy dress. A dress is an all-in-one summer outfit. Find one that has a relaxed but chic silhouette and all you have to do is throw it on the morning and go.
  • The cropped pant. Once an office classic and now an off-duty staple too, cropped trousers look relaxed but tailored too. Ideally you’d like a pair that sits at least mid waist and is cropped just above the ankle. Our favourite summer tip: you can wear it with heels and flats.
