Your Complete Guide To Building The Perfect Summer Wardrobe

New season, new wardrobe. As the temperature continues to rise, give your style a revamp with some fresh summer essentials. From bright colour to matching separates and denim overload, here are some warm-weather-ready ideas to inspire you this season. 
Think Pink.

We aren’t talking sugared almond, or a dusty rose – fuchsia is the colour of choice this season. Although not advised for a head-to-toe ensemble, fuchsia is the perfect summer accent colour. Invest in some pointed stilettos, a colourful blazer or some statement jewellery.

Deconstructed Shirting.

Not as scary as it sounds, we are looking at the oversized shirt, the one-shouldered or the asymmetric cut. Shirts are of a course a timeless classic a wardrobe essential that we have relied on as part of our sartorial daily repertoire for decades. The elegant and effortless shirt that has been a perfect companion for decades was given a makeover on the catwalk in 2016 and to our delight is back again this year.  Check out Palmer// Harding’s collection of modern shirting.

Balance the exaggerated proportions of an asymmetric shirt with fitted denim block heels or simple white pumps. Ruffles are perfect for pear shapes or rectangles to add volume on the top half and balance out the body.

How to be a Parisian

The most effortlessly stylish city in the world has to be Paris. Who wouldn’t want to look like a local when the sunshine hits? Think crisp white t-shirts, skinny denim and the blackest sunglasses. Kitten heels are on the rise as a sensible and chic choice for summer. Classic black sling-backs or tiny pointed pumps are the way to go, a subtle nod to our friends over the channel.

No florals? No problem

Invest in a ‘throw on and go’ shirt dress! For those (soon-to-come) warm weather days when you just can’t decide what to wear, keep it simple with dresses that are anything but basic. MaxMara, a brand known for their minimalism, have an entire collection that focusses on their clean aesthetic. Anthropologie has beautifully cut unusual pieces as does Max Mara.

Here’s to a worry-free, floral-free summer!
