We all love jumping on board a hot new fashion trend but let’s face it, no wardrobe would be complete without the essentials. Investing in some classic pieces will provide you with a strong wardrobe foundation you can turn to year after year and make day-to-day dressing a breeze. From the classic white tee to a versatile maxi dress, here are some of the key essentials you should have in your summer capsule wardrobe.
1. The white t-shirt
What could be more timeless than a white t-shirt? Team your tee with practically anything in your wardrobe for an effortlessly cool look. Your wardrobe won’t be complete without one!
2. Denim shorts
Just like a classic pair of blue jeans, but much more suitable for the warmer months.
3. White jeans
For when denim shorts just won’t cut it. A pair of crisp white jeans are a nice bright alternative for summer and are suitable for almost every occasion!
4. The linen shirt
Although the linen shirt originated as a trend a few years ago, it has quickly become a summer wardrobe staple for women everywhere. Wear over your bikini at the beach or dress it up with jeans and heels for the ultimate classic look.
5. The maxi
A must-have for those hot and humid days. Maxi dresses are super comfortable and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Opt for a timeless design to ensure you wear it for years to come!
6. Denim jacket
Should it get cool (unlikely but hey, it acts as a great accessory anyway) a denim jacket is perfect for throwing over your shoulders or layering over a shirt or dress.
7. Black one-piece swimsuit
Don’t overlook swimwear when developing your capsule wardrobe. A good quality classic black one-piece is an essential addition for summer. Versatile and reliable, your swimsuit will last for years to come.
More acceptable and ten times more sophisticated than thongs, slides are an essential shoe that you can wear all summer long.
9. White sneakers
If you are looking for more supportive footwear or just to dress down an outfit, look no further than a pair of white sneakers.
10. Straw hat
The perfect finishing touch for those days outdoors. Look super chic and protect yourself from the sun’s rays at the same time!
