To say that the last twelve months have been stressful, would be an understatement. Needless to say, we are all looking forward to a relaxing escape from the exhausting-everyday life. And what better thing to look forward to this year than the carefree summer days spent lounging around the beach or sipping cocktails with your closest friends during weekday brunches?
As many of us spent the last summer in a lockdown, hidden in our homes away from the fresh breeze, it’s only normal that we all want to make up for lost time. Everyone is busy making extensive holiday plans and booking their favourite getaway beach villas to gear up for the upcoming sun-filled days.
With summer being just around the corner, it’s time to give your warm weather wardrobe a second glance. Replace all your comfy knits and cozy sweatpants with breezy dresses and colourful sarongs. If you need help picking out some new pieces for your summer closet, we have some suggestions that would help you beat the heat while looking uber-stylish. Are you ready to start shopping?
Bring out the floral dresses
If there is one thing that screams summer, apart from bikinis, its floral dresses. Whether you’re headed for a lunch date or going for a quick shopping trip, lightweight floral dresses are a great pick for any summer wardrobe.
Update your shorts collection
From ripped denim ones to comfy cotton ones, shorts are a staple for any summer. Pair them with a cute bikini top or an oversized cotton shirt, they are a fuss-free way of completing any outfit.
Invest in swimsuits
As the heat rises, it’s time to start looking for the perfect swimsuits. From one-shoulder tankinis to printed swimsuits to casual bikinis, there are plenty of options for everyone. Which one is your favourite?
Add in playful jumpsuits
Instead of spending hours indoors putting together outfits, we recommend you invest in the instant-summer outfit–the jumpsuit. Lightweight, comfortable and stylish, jumpsuits can easily be styled for day or night with a simple switch of accessories.
