Summer means only one thing. It is time to think about that summer wardrobe and feeling good about yourself. Summer brings with it sunny days and cool breezes. It can be gloriously hot one minute and then completely surprise you the next with rain a drop in temperature. A typical British summer. However, it can be one of the easiest seasons to style due to a more relaxed vibe in the clothes you wear. 

You might be thinking about revamping your summer wardrobe and trying a few new things. So with that in mind, I thought I would share with you some of the things to think about when revamping your summer wardrobe. 

A decent jacket in case the weather isn’t perfect

Sometimes the weather isn’t always perfect. So for those days where it can be a little breezy, it’s handy to have a jacket that you can wear with anything. This can be as simple as a denim jacket, a lightweight cardigan, or something smarter like a blazer. You might also find that a faux leather jacket can be very flattering with a cami top and jeans.

All of the options work well with jeans or summer dresses depending on what you are wearing. Also, it is always a good idea to have one of these options in your wardrobe as they can be great for the evening as the temperature is likely to cool as the sun sets.

A cool maxi dress for those hot days

A great maxi dress can be the best go-to outfit during the summer. They tend to be made from very lightweight and breathable material. They can also be fitted or looser on your figure, so there is a style to suit everyone. They can look great during the summer and keep you fairly cool on what can be days that are very hot at times. Make sure you grab yourself a few different styles and options as they are such a versatile item for your wardrobe. The beauty of the maxi dress is that it can also be styled up for something a little more formal and dressed down for a casual day out. 

The perfect wedge sandals 

Summer means one thing. The chance to get our feet out. It is the perfect time to give our feet some love. Book a pedicure or take some time out for a little bit of self-care and give yourself a home pedicure. A simple act like painting your toenails can make sure a difference. The perfect shoes for the summer have to be comfortable and a wedge heel sandal can be a great option to consider. This style can be dressed up dressed down depending on the occasion. 

Comfort is key

While you want to look your best and stylish, you also need to factor in that some days will require comfort over style. It might be you do the school run every day, or maybe you have specific clothes that need to be worn for work. Comfort is key sometimes, and although it is easy to wear a t-shirt and jeans, you can still keep the comfort and look great as well. Think about adding colour when purchasing summer clothes. You feel comfortable but look great at the same time. You also need to ensure that you stay comfortable when it comes to footwear. So flip flops and flats can look great with any summer outfit. 

Self-care in the summer 

Don’t be afraid to embrace makeup-free days. Hot days can also be very humid, which means that makeup might not always be your friend. A good skincare routine, plenty of water, and giving your skin time to breathe will help to improve the condition and skin tone. Also, make sure you have a decent bottle of sun cream to hand. Putting it on every day can make a big difference and ensure you don’t burn when you are out in the sun.

Accessories to transform any look

Finally, don’t forget those accessories that will transform your summer look. We’re talking about oversized handbags, a great pair of shades, and statement jewellery. All of which can make an outfit go from good to great. A decent pair of sunglasses can be something you get use out of all Summer, so make sure they fit well and look the part. Also, a statement necklace can make a plain top look extra special and can jazz up the plainest of t-shirts. The oversized bag will come in handy to pack up everything you need for the summer ahead. Often accessories are the forgotten part of a wardrobe, but they can easily help transform your look.  

I hope these tips help you to revamp your summer wardrobe.
