I’ve run out of summer clothes during the heatwave have you? We need some new summer essentials. I am currently living in tea dresses and runners styled with straw bags (a seasonal must have). Also, my love for wide leg trousers has returned and I have been keen to find styles that you can dress up and down, in cooling fabrics. I am trying my best to avoid black and embrace the summer shades; I think print is a lovely way to do this.
The one advantage of summer dresses is that they are a one stop shop. Pop on the dress and you are done. And in hot weather we want as less hassle with our wardrobe as possible. If you are building a capsule wardrobe I can recommend some specific items to consider – I love tea dresses and this one from New Look is totally gorgeous, you can wear this with a midi block heel or runners. It’s so versatile. You definitely need a statement bag and as I mentioned above the straw bag is back. You don’t need to spend a lot of money on this as it’s really limited to the summer months – take a look at this available at Stradivarius which has been so popular on my Instagram this week. But, if you need some extra help, you can check out my edit below, just click on the image to take you through to the item.
