Summer is already here, and this beautiful season of vacations, sunbathing and relaxing has its fashion demands too. Out of all the seasons of the year, this one is the best when it comes to experimenting with fashion and enjoying all its benefits. It’s the age when it’s hot outside, so you have to be equally hot to survive this season. And how can you do that? With the variety of summer pieces offered in boutiques and online, it is sometimes hard to choose. The most important thing you should know is that you don’t have to buy all the trendy stuff, just few basic summer and beach essentials, and then based on those pieces you’ll keep upgrading your summer wardrobe. Let’s see what are some of the summer must-haves?
The maxi essentials
No girl can survive summer without one maxi skirt and one maxi dress, at the least. These floor grazing beauties are the IT pieces when it comes to this season of the year. They are great for matching with plain shirts or colorful one, interesting and fun accessories and wedges, heels or ballet flats. With some clever accessorizing, you can turn one maxi skirt/dress into several different outfits for variety of occasions. And that’s the beauty of it: limitless possibilities and easy of matching. What more can you ask on a hot summer day?
Well, it’s summer isn’t it? Go out there and have fun. And can you think of a better way to add some party into your outfit than by wearing funky footwear. It’s no time for the perfectly stylish black pumps, now you can wear wedges or heels with different colors, patterns (flowers, polka dots, stripes) and textures, which can make an ordinary dress stand out. Even flat sandals can be a great statement giver if you wear them in some bright distinct color.
Not only these little babies can protect your head, but they can add the perfect touch of “wow” to your outfit. You can wear them regardless of the occasion. Just choose one matching your current outfit. Straw fedoras are, for example, real hits when it comes to street style and they can give that safari feeling to your clothing combination. And, on the other side, elegant floppy hats are ideal to combine with maxi dresses.
Showing off those legs
Yep, there’s no time like summer to show off some skin. And what better way on doing that than with the summer lovin’ skirts and shorts? Luckily, the range of designer skirts and shorts is so wide, that there is a skirt and shorts for every body shape out there. Lace shorts, this age not too short as the previous one and A-line skirts are the pieces for almost every occasion, expect dinner in an elegant restaurant of course.
Jumpsuit has made its way to summer essentials quite unexpected. Really, no one expected it will become such hit. But what’s there not to expect? It’s a shirt and pants all in one. It’s body flattering and they come in various patterns, colors and materials. It can be your go-to choice for walk in the park, evening out or even a beach.
Enjoy your summer essentials and rock them on the ordinary people catwalks: clubs, beaches, parks, restaurants.
