Hello gorgeous! How was your weekend? It always feels like you’ve sneezed and the weekend has disappeared. Hopefully whatever you did brought you joy. If not, there’s always tomorrow ;). Speaking of joy, I’m sharing my 5 must have summer pieces for 2021 most of which you probably own.
5 Must Have Summer Pieces for 2021
Linen or Cotton Shirt
Let’s start off with the most obvious piece that most women would already have in their summer wardrobe. That’s the classic linen or cotton shirt. It’s light weight, cool and so versatile. Plus it comes in a variety of colours so there’s something for the neutral babes and something for the babes who love colour. There’s also something for those in between. The reason I love a linen or cotton shirt is because it can be dressed up or down. You can wear it with jeans, as a beach cover up or, worn with a satin skirt and some heels. If you don’t have one in your wardrobe already and think it will be a good addition, you can find one in a variety of places. Check here, here, here or here.
Ok so shorts are one of those summer pieces where it can be controversial or just something that you dismiss. Some people don’t wear shorts because they just don’t like them. Or, it’s because they’re self conscious about wearing shorts. If you love shorts but don’t wear them but want to here are a few tips that might help you choose the perfect pair. 1) look at the fabric. Sometimes denim just does not work but a linen or cotton blend does. 2) go up a size. Going up a size can give you the perfect length and sufficient space around your legs so its breathable. Finally 3) try different styles. There are a multitude of cuts for shorts such as the bermuda shorts or, the mom shorts. It is trial and error but if you end up with ones you enjoy wearing time after time, it’s worth it. Here are a few of my favourites, here, here and here.
Wide Leg Trousers
I think wide leg trousers are flattering on most, if not all body types. I’m partial to the ones that are made of a lighter fabric and has movement. This makes them versatile and a great summer wardrobe stable. You can pair them with a graphic t-shirt tied around the waist. Or that same linen shirt I mentioned earlier. Wear with heels, espadrilles or trainers. A good all rounder that you can rinse and restyle.
What’s summer without the quintessential summer dress? Also, it doesn’t have to be white. The summer dress is that dress that makes you feel like a goddess, whilst keeping you comfortable. For me, I prefer breathable fabric that I can throw in my suitcase and pull out when it’s needed. It’s the piece you wear for brunch, lunch or dinner year after summer year. These are a few pieces that I like the look of, here, here and here.
Flats or Espadrilles
Of course my 5 must have summer pieces for 2021 list must include some kind of shoe. This time I’m giving you 2 options because every woman needs options. The first ones are flat sandals. Choose the right colour and style and you’ll have something you can wear to everything except a ball. A neutral pair can be styled with all the other pieces I mentioned and also elongate your legs.
The other option are espadrilles. They can be either in a flat style or a nice wedge heel. Both are great options. I enjoy a bit of height because it looks great with the floaty trousers and summer dress. Plus, great to wear in grass. You could see a lovely pair in my latest Instagram reel here.
