SUMMER STYLE SECRETS

Summer is coming, the sun is starting to shine and I thought its about time that I share some of my summer style secrets.  Summer is a time where I can be more adventurous with my style and I travel outside of my comfort zone. I have a few style tips that I think may be helpful to share for over the warmer months.

I will always aim to make sure that I am well presented, that my outfit looks like I have put in effort- even just a teensy bit. My key to this is to make sure I have items in my wardrobe that can go with each other easily and are versatile. Adding bits here and there add flair, although I will always go for the minimalistic and understated look.

There are a few trends in season at the moment that I am totally going for. Read all about my favourite trends after my Summer Style Secrets!

MY GO TO PIECES


 SKIRTS

Skirts are always a good option in Summer, they are versatile and staple and you can dress them accordingly to how you feel. Personally due to my figure and stature I go for skirts that pull in at the waist.

Skirts are a go to option for me because they are feminine and classy. You can dress them up or down and they always look like you made an effort. I find skirts incredibly variable and theres always a new outfit for a staple piece.

SUMMER STYLE SECRETS:

If I am wearing a skirt that has a weightier fabric I will always make sure that I wear a light Blouse, Shirt or Tee. Something that has a bit of movement if the skirt is tighter and isn’t too tight or restrictive to make sure I stay comfortable in the heat.

At night if it gets cooler I will make sure to put some tights with my short skirt paired with boots or heels. Like I said earlier- Personally I will always go for a skirt that pulls in at the waist and cuts off either above the knee or cuts off mid length.

SHIRTS AND BLOUSES

Shirts and blouses are another summer staple for me as they are easily dressed up or casual. Like skirts they are easily paired with other items and always look put together. I like to pair these with necklaces, watches and other jewellery. I will opt for a blazer, bomber or cardi thrown over my shoulders when it gets colder. My blouses and shirts are usually a neutral colour as I like to dress outfits up with on trend accessories.

 

SUMMER STYLE SECRETS:

I will always go for a looser top if my bottom half is tight, or more fitted if I am wearing with flowy skirts, overalls or loose pants.

ACCESSORIES

Accessories are extremely important to me during summer, it means you can wear more without actually wearing more. A good bag, some sunnies, a watch or a hat can go a long way style wise. You could be wearing the simplest, plainest little white dress and it totally looks chic with a bit of accessorising.

 

SUMMER STYLE SECRETS:

Although I am quite plain and monochrome in style, this is where I am more likely to make my outfit stand out. I love neutral colours but I keep it interesting and draw attention to the outfit with quirky shapes and styles with flair and class.

STAPLES

Summer is no exception to the rule, staples are staples and go with you everywhere- usually. You always have those comfy go to pieces in your wardrobe. A pair of jeans, a set of flats or a blazer. I have a few bits that I know are always going to look lovely, pair nicely or make me feel comfortable.

 

SUMMER STYLE SECRETS:

My staples are generally pretty neutral in colour as so to pair with everything I have in my wardrobe. This way I am more likely to get great use of wear. This is not as restrictive as it may seem. My favourite neutrals are of course black, white, tan, grey, brown, navy and sometimes a dusky pink.

SHOP THE SUMMER STYLE TRENDS I LOVE

There are always summer trends that are going to be hyped up. Currently I am all about the simple florals, lace and understated frills, sneakers with jeans, micro bags and the loose but “pulled in” look for dresses and tops.

 

SUMMER STYLE SECRETS:

It is good to keep an eye on trends and stay fashion forward. In saying this it is important to know what suits your body type and shape. Staying true to your figure will ensure you are comfortable and at ease. This will make you confident, and we all know that confidence= sexy.
