The festive season always takes a toll on your bank balance, so you’re probably not thinking about spending much on clothing at the minute. HOWEVER! Most stores carry their Boxing Day sales right through January or until stocks last, so this is a good opportunity to fill up your wardrobe for the Summer months.
Here are the items you simply MUST HAVE in your wardrobe this season...
Outerwear is quite simple in the winter because it’s mostly about functionality. You need a thick coat that’s going to keep you warm during the cold months. In Summer, you want something that's light, but will still provide warmth on a cooler evening. A good lightweight blazer is a great solution here because you can match it with a lot of different outfits. Cotton and linen are the best fabrics and you should look for neutral colours so you can match it with a lot of different outfits. You’ll still be able to get some use out of it in the autumn as well if you match it with a roll neck jumper. It's all in the layering!
These are perfect because they're versatile! Head scarves can be worn many different ways, or can even be tied around your neck. If the outfit you're wearing is on the simpler side, add a scarf to bring colour and life! This season we're loving Mimco's head scarf range.
Who doesn't love the ease of simply throwing on a cute dress and walking out the door in Summer? Purchasing from stores that are reasonably priced means you can afford to have more than one in your wardrobe. We love Petal and Pup Women's Fashion not only for their price point, but for the quality you get for it too.
And just look how cute they are...
A White T-Shirt
The white t-shirt is one of the most versatile items in your wardrobe all year around, but it’s especially good in summer when you’re going for a laid back look. It works brilliantly matched with your lightweight blazer as well as with a pair of jeans if you’re going for a more casual outfit. Just make sure that you go for quality.
Being white means you'll probably need to wash it more often so you don't want something that'll pill or crumple in the wash.
A brand like Bonds is known for it's quality and have a huge variety of basics!
