Spice up your wardrobe with these summer essentials!
The first rays of sunshine have certainly made their way and you don’t want to invest in a piece that will go out of fashion next season?
Therefore, we have compiled for you, timeless and must have pieces that will outlast fads and that you will be able to depend on every summer! These pieces will not only feel appropriate and relevant every year, but they will help you stand out and add style to your daily outfit!
The Summer Scarf
It’s a discreet accessory that is always making its way back to our wardrobes each season!
With just few square centimeters of fabric, it perfects your look and reminds you of the sixties during which it was worn by the most beautiful women, from Audrey Hepburn to Grace Kelly!
Men’s scarves are equally important this summer, as they will add flair to any outfit by either adding a dash of color on a dark outfit or on the contrary, by offsetting bright colors with a dark shade!
The Statement Necklace and the Men bracelet
Whether you need to underline your personal style in your working week or for a party, a bold necklace can easily make you standout.
This is another timeless piece that made our list of summer essentials as it goes with a wide range of different styles and outfits.
As for men, a bracelet is the best style upping option to throw on your wrist. The Tom Ford bracelet is the perfect option for that, it will look just as good with your tux as with your shorts and t-shirt!
Your summer essential handbag should be as fresh and summery as the rest of your outfit. Floral, fruity colors are a must, these bags will be your must have accessory for work and festival, just be careful not to match it with clothing in the exact same shade!
Men will need a bag to carry around in summer as well, especially that summer means traveling, days at the beach, and weekend trips – all occasions where a bag is an outright essential! The most practical bag with bright colors for this summer would be the Armani Exchange messenger bag; wear it as a cross body and you’re good to go!
The Linen Outfit and the Slip on Dress
Linen is the perfect lightweight fabric to keep you cool, plus, linen outfits never go out of style. Light shades such as mid blue, pale grey, white and beige are the most popular colors, but you can also choose a linen suit in black for formal events!
Initially believed to be an ephemeral trend, a slip dress is now a wardrobe essential and the proof is that it has also become the perfect transitional look for fall. You can go for the low-key daytime slip with sneakers during the day or wear a long silk dress for formal event; either way, this 90s throwback is the most convenient option to opt for a stylish yet breezy look in the warmer days!
This summer’s shoe was inspired by the poolside or even by the locker room of your gym club. Our favorite designers have reinvented the slides so you can step out wearing them anywhere and anytime!
You would say that these were popular back in middle school or in the 90s, but they are now back with a high-end spin. For men and women, brands such as Givenchy have presented their take on the trend to make sure you always look comfortably stylish!
A real fashion accessory that we enjoy with the first rays of sunshine, sunglasses spice up an outfit with their different shapes and colors!
The Wayfarers for example, are the perfect example of a timeless accessory that you can wear whenever the sunny days are back.
Other safe bets are the Aviators for example; launched by RayBan, this model is now offered by many brands such as Giorgio Armani and Tom Ford, and it is also available in many different colors.
Retro XXL or butterfly frames have also become basics by making their way back to our boutiques. Check out the latest styles by Burberry, Prada & Michael Kors at your nearest Rodeo Drive boutique!
The Logo T-shirt
This trend keeps on coming back every time we think it faded away! It is taking center stage and its old school timeless appeal granted it a spot in our wardrobe essentials.
Worn with a wide range of outfits, whether with track pants, a midi skirt, a black leather jacket, denim for an edgy look, or even with lace, the logo tee is proof that it goes with almost everything!
Ever since the Athleisure trend came out, sneakers have been worn everywhere except at funerals and weddings! Giving birth to a style of its own, you will never have too many in your wardrobe: From the Versace high-top sneaker showing a sliver of skin with ankle length jeans or the Givenchy gym-knit for a comfortable fashion forward street style, we can safely say that in addition to heels for women and loafers for men, trainers have become everyday essentials as well!
Now that the beach days are here, the glamour and pleasure of a retro look feel right.
For women, nostalgic florals and flattering swimsuits have made their way back with brands such as Beach Bunny. Not your style? You can always opt for the timeless nautical stripes and rope detailing, or the sporty minimal one-piece as an all-time guaranteed choice to hit the sand!
Men also have a wide variety, from stripes to patterns and prints to the solid block colors and the old school pairs, options are countless to be the most stylish guy this summer!
Now that you are well-equipped, take a little break and enjoy summer in style!
