Denim jacket

Hear us out. You’ve got all dressed up in a slinky summery dress when you feel that pesky breeze start to pick up. A light denim jacket is the perfect accessory for early mornings and late nights when a light extra warmth is needed. Choose either a fitted moto style that’s nipped in at the waist or, for a more retro feeling, opt for a slightly oversized version with frayed details like Made in Chelsea star Emily Blackwell.

Maxi dress

Summer is no time for skintight, restrictive fashion. Warm weather calls for light billowy styles like the classic maxi dress. Choose an airy design in either a solid block color or go for one of the season’s more tropical flowery motifs. Better yet, why not get both?

Breton stripes

Once the official uniform of French mariners, Breton stripes have come a long way on their style journey. Today it’s a necessary clothing item in every fashionista’s summer wardrobe. Evoking images of lazy days spent on a seafaring yacht, these horizontal blue and white stripes go perfectly with cheeky denim shorts or structured white linen pants.

Denim shorts

On the topic of denim shorts, can you every really have enough pairs? It’s no wonder then that they make a return every summer season. And the way you choose to style yours are completely up to you – cute and girly with a white T-shirt and sneakers, or sexy and slinky with a strappy top and stiletto heels.

White sneakers

They’re everyone’s favorite, yet underrated, all-weather choice of shoes. A pair of classic white sneakers are minimalistic, classic and, above all, versatile. Wear yours with a flirty summer dress for a look that’s cute and oh so comfortable.

One-piece swimsuit

What would summer be without the perfect swimsuit? Sure, a string bikini might be the more head-turning choice but, when it comes to summer staples, a trusty one-piece design is much more of an investment piece. Think of all the styling options available. Besides wearing it as swimwear, it easily doubles up as a fitted top under other clothing.
