6 Essential Summer Wardrobe Ideas

By Jen Charbonneau

Summer has officially begun!  And with a host of fun events coming up, holiday plans & outdoor music festivals in full swing, the last thing you want to worry about is your wardrobe.

Here are 6 summer essential wardrobe ideas to make it easy for you to look & feel fabulous all summer long!

  1. Start with some Basics – they are the building blocks of your wardrobe. A great pair of denim jeans (or crops), a crisp white tee, a black tank and a white sleeveless blouse are all easy pieces to build your look.
  2. Add in some Colour Combos – go ahead, mix it up – try wearing greens with blues, yellows with navy, pinks with reds. Swing open your closet, dig through your drawers and search for those forgotten colours you’ve pushed aside.  Gone are the days of matchy-matchy!
  3. Try Prints & Patterns – ditch your monochromatic ensemble (you know, the black pants with the black top) and spice up your day-to-day look with a pretty blouse. Flirty florals or bold graphic prints add just the right pop to any outfit.
  4. Shorts aren’t your thing? Not to worry – from skorts and skirts to dresses and super lightweight trousers, you can beat the heat in everything but shorts!
  5. The Denim Jacket – don’t have one? Get one!  Whether a cool night or a dull day, paired with coloured bottoms, shorts, a cute skirt or dress, a well-fitting denim jacket is every woman’s summer wardrobe essential. It’s never going out of style and it finishes an outfit brilliantly.
  6. Accessorize – a chic pair of sunglasses, a sun hat and a cross-body bag completes your look. Keeping your footwear neutral allows you to get the most out of it. Thank goodness for sandals, flip flops and wedges because there’s always room for a little fun & personality!

Don’t let your wardrobe woes keep you from having fun. When you choose items that fit your body and your lifestyle, you can confidently enjoy all that summer has to offer!  So go ahead, be fearless. Your closet’s full of possibilities!
