Summer Wardrobe Essentials

Summer Wardrobe Essentials

Summer fashion for me is all about comfortable clothes and keeping it casual. In today’s post, I’m going to share with you my Top 6 Summer Wardrobe Essentials.

1. Sunglasses

I know this is such a no-brainer but sunglasses are my go-to accessory for summers. Although I have quite a few pairs of sunglasses, my favorite are these Wayfarers from Rayban, which I wear ALL the time!

2. Shorts

I could spend all summer wearing the classic combo of shorts and plain T-shirts. I also like pairing them with crops tops. They are super comfortable and I like the whole casual look for the summer. Both the ones I’m wearing are from Forever 21.

3. Hat

I love hats; not only do they protect you from the sun but they also look really cool! The one I’m wearing in this picture is from Forever 21 and is perfect for the beach.

4. Scarves

I’ve only recently discovered how versatile scarves can be and I’ve been wearing them a lot lately! Whether it’s to protect yourself from the sun or deal with drafty air in movie halls and restaurants (I feel cold a lot), it’s great for summers. I also like how scarves double up as sarongs and kimonos, perfect for when you hit the pool or the beach. The ones I’m wearing here are from Pigtails & Ponys.

5. Maxi Dresses

I’m a big fan of maxi dresses and they look good all year long. But I think they’re the best for the hotter summer months; they’re airy, comfortable and also keep your legs protected from the sun. I got this dress from Lifestyle.

6. Beach Bags

Whether you’re heading to the beach or on a long summer vacation, beach bags are a must-have for me to dump all the million things I usually carry and to make the most of my time in the sun and sand. I picked up the one in the picture from a flea market.

    One of my essentials would be sandals or flip flops.

    • That’s a good one! Didn’t include it in the list because I love wearing sandals and flip flops all year round haha 🙂

  • These are all such great essentials! And definitely things I’ve been refreshing in my wardrobe. My biggest summer essential is a really nice bikini top. I live right on the water and everyone walks around in their swimsuit all day. I’m a fan of a bikini top and a good pair of cutoffs for a casual beachy look without rocking my whole swimsuit!


    • Thanks, Dannie! That sounds like the ideal place to live! Sadly for me, I don’t live by the water but I love going on beach vacations 🙂

  • I love the dress in your banner image! Such a gorgeous colour! xx

  • These are all definite essentials for me too! Especially shorts!
