It’s almost that time of year, holidays are on the horizon! The upcoming bank holiday weekends have got us thinking about that extra getaway time. Curating your summer wardrobe is an essential part of holiday prep. To simplify, we’ve put together a list of top ten essentials to invest in, in order to create the perfect capsule collection that fits snugly in your suitcase.
Linen in summer is almost as ground-breaking as floral prints in spring, however it is perfect to invest in because of exactly that…it never goes out of style. Linen sets are a smart way to incorporate this summer essential into your wardrobe. They can be styled for everyday wear or beachwear, worn together or separately with other existing pieces in your wardrobe.
Oversized shirts, particularly striped designs, are a huge trend this season. A versatile piece that can be worn in endless ways for different occasions, oversized shirts are a stylish beach cover-up option, light layer or smart casual go-to. Influenced by the coveted Scandi girl style, oversized shirts are an effortless way to take an outfit from simple to chic.
Basket bags are a trend that’s here to stay. A beach day essential, basket bags have a whimsical yet chic feel for the ultimate summer tote. With room all of your pool-side necessities, basket bags are a practical everyday summer bag option for wherever you are.
Sandals need no introduction. A stylish alternative to your everyday trainer, sliders and sandals are a great option for styling with jeans, skirts and dresses for an elevated everyday look. A practical choice for a walk along the beach or a summer Sunday brunch date, sliders and sandals are an accessory staple throughout the warmer season.
Jewellery is the finishing touch to any outfit. During the warmer months, it feels only right to go bigger and bolder. Playing with colour is a fun way to accessorise, a pair of statement earrings add a touch of glamour to a beachwear look, whilst a beaded bracelet epitomised surfer girl chic. Shop Anni Lu, LUV AJ and Hermima Athens for summer staples.
Sunglasses are a playful piece to inject a little personality into your summer wardrobe. This is an accessory you can have fun with, be bold or keep things chic and classic. This season, anything goes. Whether it’s small, big or heart-shaped frames, there are so many trends to dip your toe into.
Swimwear is a must-have when it comes to your holiday wardrobe. We define great swimwear as whatever makes you feel most confident, and it’s important to remember that every body is different. This is one holiday essential that we would advise to not follow trends by the letter, and stick to whatever makes you feel good. Classic one piece shapes never go out of style.
Cover-ups add a touch of glamour to your swimwear looks, whilst being practical for maintaining modesty. Whether it’s a floor-length kimono, trousers of a mini dress the key is to invest it a piece that pairs easily with your existing swimwear.
Sun hats not only help to keep things cool, they are a playful accessory to add to a summer look. Bucket hats have resurfaced from the nineties and been adopted back into every day wear. Raffia and crochet bucket hats are in the wardrobes of every influencer this season.
Light layers are (unfortunately) a summer wardrobe essential in the UK. Whilst the sun shines throughout the season, it’s easy to forget that we still have chillier days that require a light layer over your sundress. We consider denim jackets to be almost as essential as jeans for everyday. They are a casual piece that elevate any outfit. Particularly this season, we’re even champions of a fierce denim-on-denim look.
