My Summer Style Staples!




It is time for another fashion post here on my blog, and now that we are in the midst of summer, I thought that it was about time that I told you about some of the summer staples in my wardrobe. I have a few things in my closet that I reach for time and time again, especially when it gets to this time of year and it is ever so slightly warmer than the usual UK weather. I have said it before here on my blog, but I’m not really a very summery person, I much prefer layering up in the winter and throwing on a big thick coat. So, when I find some things that I really like wearing, I wear them more or less constantly.

Even when it is the middle of the summer, I never tend to opt for bright colours. I always go for my usual dark shades with a hint of red and green thrown in here and there. I love how bright colours look on people during the warmer months, but personally I am not really a fan of them. For one, I am so unused to seeing myself in bright colours that I just think they look awful whenever I do, and secondly, I like to sneak through life unnoticed, and bright neon shades don’t really allow you to do that very discreetly. Anyway, here are my wardrobe summer staples…



Tea Dresses
The first thing that I need to mention, and it is something that I wear hell of a lot of during the winter and that is tea dresses. I have quite a collection of these at the moment with about 10 of them hanging in my wardrobe. What I love about these dresses is that they are stunning and so effortless. You don’t have to do anything in order to make a tea dress look really lovely and stunning. They are just such a classic style of dress and that is why I constantly find myself reaching for them. I love to make them a touch more masculine with a pair of black Chelsea boots and in the winter, I will pop some tights on with them so that I can wear them all year round!


Denim Jacket
Even though it may be hell of a lot warmer in the summer months, I still need to have a jacket that I can throw over my shoulders to keep the chill away. I am the coldest person on the planet, so a good and reliable jacket is an absolute must have for me. I feel like during the warmer months a denim jacket is the only way to go. They go with absolutely everything whether it be a pencil dress or one of my beloved tea dresses, I just think that it is the perfect addition to any outfit. I have quite a few denim jackets but one that I am loving at the moment was a cheapy from ASOS that only cost me around £45 pounds. I am in love with it!


Tan Leather Sandals
As soon as the hot weather starts to creep up on us, my toes are one of the first thing to come out. By the summer months my feet are literally sick to death of been trapped in boots, so I love in my tanned sandals. I never go very garish with my footwear, so I just tend to stick to my tan sandals and I am good to go, because they go perfectly with every single thing that I have in my wardrobe. The pair of tanned sandals that I own are ones that I bought from Dune last year, they set me back around £60 at the time, but they are still going strong and I love how they look now that the leather is starting to age slightly on them.


Bodycon Midi Dresses
I live in midi dresses during the summer because they literally take next to no effort, all you have to do is just throw it on and go about your day. I have so many bodycon midi dresses, in so many different colours and I seem to wear them on rotation. I have a black, khaki, red, white and nude and I love how they all look. They are super comfortable because they are a soft ribbed cotton. Most of the ones that I have are from H&M and ASOS and none of them cost me more than £20. I just think that items like this are a really timeless style, so I wear them year after year and they always look perfect.



White Converse
Even though for the past couple of months I have been having a little love affair with my classic black Vans, I am now back on with my white Converse and we are happier than ever. I tend to get a new pair of white Converse every single year and I love them. I think that they look so chic when they are paired with my little sun dresses throughout the summer. They are just such a staple and they will be forever a truly timeless pair of shoes. Usually throughout the summer, I will either reach for my tan sandals or these. I adore them. I think that they look particularly nice when I have tanned legs because the white just looks really good. Not to mention that they are really comfortable for walking around in all day long!

There you have it, my summer staples. I just think that these things always look so chic when it comes to the summer months and they have seen me through so many different years. As you can probably see, I have left links above to each of the things about so that you can check them out if you want.
