Top Tips for Stepping Into Summer

In light of this transitional weather we’ve been having, or the “shades and umbrella syndrome” as I often refer to it as, I’ve been thinking a lot about the perfect way to transition your wardrobe from those darker days to some summer fun in just a few stylish steps, jsut before the summer months require we whip out our inner beach-babe goddesses!

Never knowing what we’ll get when leaving the house, the first thing to keep in mind is to always bring both your shades and umbrella in these coming weeks because sure enough at any given moment you’ll need one or the other or hell even both! But apart from the pratical side of such matters, I’m here to share the first of my key points for stepping into summer.

  • Pastels

Pastel shades in anything are a great way to add a little summer to your look without having to rely on the weather to bring sunshine to your day. For those who fear the big bold and beautiful prints of summer, pastel coloured jeans are perfect and a personal favourite. The stores have so many pretty shirts, jackets and dresses right now to indulge in for this classic summer trend too.

If you’re not into wearing full pieces of pastels though, you can add in a little splash of pretty with accessories from shoes to bags or even a pashmina to wrap yourself up in on these chilly nights! My only point to add is: incorporate this trend in part rather than go all in with a full pastel look.

  • The Daily Dress

Just because it’s not yet all sunshine all day every day doesn't mean you need fear bringing out your favourite summer dresses. Team them with ankle boots, a leather jacket to keep you warm and if needs be, a pair of very light tights. So simple yet a perfect way to transition.

  •  White Pants

White jeans or pants are summer staples for every wardrobe, every year. No matter where in the world you are or where your travels may take you this summer, investing in a pair that make you feel wow is something I couldn’t suggest more.

Just be careful not to wear them on rainy days as there’s nothing worse than dirty splashes all up the backs of your perfectly pretty new pants. And nothing more annoying to have to remove!
