*AFFILIATE LINKS USED THROUGHOUT*
The summer countdown is officially on and that means we’ve been keeping our eyes out for some failsafe, effortless pieces to become our new, everyday summer staples. There’s a few essentials we think you should be buying into this season and we wanted to share with you 8 of the very best below. Think classic, dress up, dress down pieces for both style & ease 🙂
– THE MUST-HAVE KNIT DRESS –
First up we have this new-in, Mango knit dress… We have been obsessing over this style of dress lately and love how a knitted style can be worn to pretty much any occasion. We are confident it’s going to be the summer dress style of the year…so before this one sells out too (which we know it will!) take a look if you have your eye on a knitted dress this season.
– THE WHITE SHIRT OF DREAMS –
A summer wardrobe would not be complete without a versatile white shirt, so if you need an update or perhaps are missing one altogether, then this oversized, & Other Stories pick is a must! Whether it’s being worn as a coverup on the beach, or paired with linen trousers or jeans for an al fresco dinner, an oversized white shirt will always work. It quite literally will never go out of style…
– THE LUXE LOOKING SANDALS –
We were so excited when we came across these comfortable(!) and luxe looking, platform sandals from Mango, and here’s why… Not only are they designer inspired, but this sandal style will carry you through from Spring to Summer, as well as from day to night! Styled up or down, these will work in any scenario and are guaranteed to elevate even the simplest of outfits.
– THE ULTIMATE SUMMER BAG –
What’s a summer wardrobe without a great straw or basket bag in tow?! And yes the options are endless, BUT say hello to our absolute favourite in the shops now. Alongside the major Loewe vibes, this bag not only functions as the perfect everyday Summer handbag, it is an excellent addition to your holiday suitcase too…
– THE MOST FLATTERING NEUTRAL JEANS –
We are the first to admit that neutral/ white coloured jeans used to scare us & we would often struggle to find a pair that were both that perfect shade and fit! However, these Mango jeans have been a game changer… Aside from being the most beaut, creamy shade, they are incredibly flattering (you can thank the high rise & cropped leg combo!) and we are certain we are going to be wearing them throughout the rest of the season ahead…
– THE DESIGNER INSPIRED BIKINI –
We are always on the hunt for that ultimate bikini or costume that we can add to our collection & for us it’s all about the silhouette. We look for styles that are both chic & flattering & not to mention comfortable, so when we came across this Mango bikini (serving us all the Marysia vibes!) it was a no brainer! This is luxe for less at it’s finest!
– THE SUNNIES OF THE SEASON –
Cat-eye sunglasses are very much part of our favourite accessory line up & we love the fact that they are seriously flattering on what feels like every face shape! Trust H&M to nail the designer inspired style with this oversized black pair.
– THE PERFECT LINEN TROUSERS –
Last but not least, we have the perfect pair of linen trousers from Warehouse…you know we live for linen in the summer months! A go-to for us as soon as the sun starts to shine. Up top they somehow just work with everything from shirts, to tanks to tees & this pair very much fit our criteria! Neutral in colour, wide leg in style they are insanely flattering & take it from us, they are the ultimate summer staple.
