5 Summer Wardrobe Essentials
In a few weeks, we’ll be basking in the sun, enjoying the warm weather with friends and our favorite drinks, sharing laughs on the patio! To make your summer more enjoyable, make sure you have these essential items in your wardrobe. You don’t want to run into a fashion rut when Canadian Summers are so short!
After years as a summer favorite, The Maxi Dress is now a certified staple in any wardrobe. To update things a tad, try adding a Maxi dress in a bright, but wearable color. Fuchsia seems to complement everyone! Also, try a maxi dress with sleeves, or higher necklines! Change up the look.
Shorts are essential in every length, fabric and style, fancy or casual, but one style we love right now is a pair of navy blue shorts! Yes, Black has always been a staple, but why not change things up and pair navy blue shorts with that yellow or green blazer? Navy isn’t as ‘hard’ as black, so the contrast of navy with bright colors appears lighter and softer to the eyes.
Shades travel with us no matter where we go in our summer travels. Sunglasses can be purchased at any price point and you can enjoy so many summer fashion trends with Neon, Floral, or beige frames. This season, the shapes vary. You can go with Ray Ban or you can get a retro feel with a nice pair of cat-eye framed sunglasses.
After seasons of hobo bags and large totes, we can now embrace the clutch purse! The Clutch is another trend that varies in color, size and price point, but you should really go for a bright hue with this handbag. When wearing your LBD, try a carrying a bright green or cobalt blue clutch. The simple addition of a colorful clutch will bring the LBD new life!
A few a seasons ago, you would pack a black cardigan as a safety net from the air conditioned office. This season, pack a colored blazer to keep warm at work!
