The weather is changing and we’ll be facing summer shortly. Have you given a thought about your summer wardrobe? Luckily, you don’t have to spend a ton of cash to update your wardrobe for the warmer months. All you need to do is pick out a few essential fashion pieces inspired by the latest trends. You can then pair these items with what you already have. Take a look at the top fashion essentials for summer:

1) A romper

Nothing says summer like a cute romper. You can wear rompers with almost anything to create different outfits. You could keep it casual with sandals or sneakers depending on your personal style. You could layer it with a lightweight shirt or an edgy leather jacket if it’s a bit colder. It’s easy to dress up a romper with strappy stilettos and a statement necklace. So invest in one that incorporates the latest pattern trends like bold gingham prints or abstract florals.

2) A slip dress

Embrace nineties fashion with a minimal and comfy slip dress. Think a young Kate Moss with a contemporary twist. You can channel a grunge vibe with a leather jacket and a pair of all-white sneakers. For a work-worthy look, you could wear a long coat on top and slip on a pair of pointy-toe flats. You can also wear the slip dress for a night out by dressing it up with strappy stilettos and statement earrings.

3) Wide-leg trousers

Channel a boho look with a pair of lightweight wide-leg trousers in cheery and cool prints. These are comfortable and stylish at the same time so you can dress comfortably for the summer while maintaining a classy look. Keep it casual by wearing them with a basic tee or a tank top. You could also dress up the look with flatform sandals and dressy camisoles with dangle earrings.

4) Cropped denims

Go old school with a pair of cropped denims as a fashion basic for the summer. This trend will go with anything and can either be styled casually or dressed up for a fancy affair. Go for a minimalist look with a basic tee and a pair of pointy-toe flats. Grab your favorite bag and you’re ready for a day out with the girls. You could also wear it for a more formal event by dressing it up with statement accessories and elegant pumps.

5) Pointy-toe skimmers

This classic piece of accessory can work with any outfit in your wardrobe – from casual wear to work clothes. They will also look great with the fashion items mentioned earlier such as the slip on dress, the romper, and the cropped denims. Make sure you invest in a pair that can take you from day to night. This means something that looks casual enough for the weekend but dressy enough for a party dress.

6) A necktie blouse

 The seventies are making a comeback with the classic necktie blouse. It’s one of the easiest ways to incorporate retro fashion into a contemporary outfit. You could wear it with a pencil skirt or fitted trousers for the office. For a more casual look, you could pair the necktie blouse with flared denims or skinny jeans. This piece could even take you from everyday wear to costume-worthy look. So you could plan ahead for a seventies-inspired Halloween costume. Think the original Charlie’s Angels.

7) A slit midi skirt

For the perfect balance between fun and refined, grab a well-fitted slit midi skirt. The silhouette is long enough, so you could wear it to work. Otherwise, you could also give it an edgy look by wearing it with all-white sneakers. Try wearing it with a lightweight boho-style spaghetti top and throw on a pair of oversized sunglasses for a relaxed look.

You can use it to dress down a fancy outfit such as bold prints and sequins. With the shirt and sneaker ensemble making a huge comeback, make sure you grab a pair that looks great on you.
