As a girl/woman you know not all clothes are appropriate for every season.
During summer time our closets, naturally, change. All long sleeved t-shirts are tucked away and we welcome mini dresses with short sleeves, looser clothes, no more coats and jackets and, of course, sandals replace boots. It’s a whole other style.
Just like in a winter closet, there are certain pieces you must not lack of. I’m talking about basic pieces, most of them I imagine are already in your summer wardrobe, in variety of colors – that’s the way all french girl’s do fashion.
In this post, I am going to countdown the pieces that your summer wardrobe needs to include in order to be complete and be able to get you through any time of day.
- Graphic tee’s
A white (or any color) t-shirt with a cute, or inspiring, quote is always a good idea. You can wear it with jeans, skirts or even leggings, and depending the type of the clothing piece you can turn an outfit into a classy or casual one.
Best outfit idea! Re-create the iconic Sex and the City outfit from IT girl SJP, which consists of a midi, tutu skirt and a t-shirt. The ultimate New York girl style.
- Denim Shorts
During summer it’s every girl’s go-to-outfit. A good quality denim pair of shorts, literally, gets you through the day with comfort and depending the outfit, with style. It’s the clothing piece that pretty much defines summer, therefore, it is a must in your closet this season. The fact that it comes in various colors gives us choices and opportunities to alter every outfit to our liking and personal style.
- White Shirt
A white shirt is mandatory for every season. It works great during winter and it works amazing during summer too. White is a very clean color and such a light shade that you cannot help but think about sunny days. Best outfit tip! Pick for a quick and easy go to summer outfit a pair of denim shorts paired with your favorite white shirt . Doesn’t get more summer-y than this.
- Floral mini dress
Cutest piece that you need to have in your closet. Sunny days mean bright sunlight, beautiful flowers and in fashion that means it’s time for florals to take over catwalks and street style.
When talking about sandals I mean the flat ones. You can’t wear your sneakers or your training shoes forever. During sunny days you have to play with your style and cuteness. Opt for a pair of flat sandals – choose those that you feel comfortable and flattering in – and let your feet “breathe” a little.
- Converse / Loafers
Now that we’re on the subject of shoes, let’s talk about how important Converse shoes have become in our lives. They come in whatever color you can imagine, with or without patterns and prints, and always manage to look good even if your style is more casual or classy. If you want a more French style girl vibe you can trade your converse shoes for classy loafers of any color you like. In my opinion, a brown coloured pair of loafers is exactly what your closet needs.
It’s not mandatory to own all those pieces for your summer wardrobe to be complete, but all of them already exist in it because every summer outfit is based on them. When choosing those pieces make sure you pick pieces that match your style and bodytype, don’t go for the ones that you’re not sure will flatter your assets. Work with what you have, ladies!
