What Do I Need In My Summer Wardrobe?

The UK ‘summer’ is finally making its way here, and we couldn’t be more excited about putting together our summer outfit ideas.
But how do you keep warm during breezy days at the beach and late-night garden parties?
We have one word for you…LAYERS!
Summer style can be tricky for a lot of people, but with a collection of staple summer outfits and our expert advice, you're guaranteed to make this summertime one to remember.
Layering mixed textures and patterns can not only create a look worthy of a double-take, but it will also (and most importantly) keep the goose bumps to a minimum. 
In today’s post, we’ll talk you through how to layer up your look in an instant.

Take the essentials with you

It's all well and good having drawers full of bikinis and mini skirts, but it's also important to have clothing suitable for the inevitable chilly nights.

We’ve all made the mistake of heading off to the beach in nothing but a tank top and denim shorts, then regretting it as soon as the sun sets. 

But we’re not going to let it happen this year!

When you’re packing your beach bag with snacks, books, and SPF, don’t forget to add a cardigan or sweatshirt to put over your shoulders when it starts to get a bit cooler. 

Our graphics whiz Lauren recommends the Yaz Jumper by Libby Loves. 


She said, “I feel the cold so easily, I need a jumper on me at all times! The best part about the Libby Loves range is that it’s cosy but still chic. My friends are always asking where it’s from!


Dive into your winter favourites 

Don’t be afraid to have a look at your winter wardrobe for inspiration when it comes to summer styling. 

Wear your favourite chunky knit with a satin midi skirt for that off-duty model vibe, or pair your fave knitted dress with sunglasses and a cocktail for an evening summer look to die for.

Opt for a cardigan over your summer dresses to add to your selection of summer outfits. Style with your favourite hat and a western-inspired belt for a summer look to die for.



Athleisure is the way forward

Remember when KimYe came together and convinced everyone to buy cycling shorts and oversized hoodies? 

Well, they managed to create a lasting trend that is still ruling the rails.

When the sun’s out, cycling shorts and a crop top or oversized tee is an easy and comfortable outfit suitable for almost all occasions. 

Adding a zip-up hoodie is a great way to bring a bit of extra warmth into the night. 

Want to take your comfy outfit up a level? Add a blazer!

Holly is a key member of the SS team, doing all the behind the scenes bits and bobs for us. She loves adding a blazer to her more casual looks to give them an instant boost. 


I love wearing the Sian Marie loose fit shorts with a blazer. It makes me look a bit more dressed up when I can’t be bothered putting an outfit together.


Make your summer style your own 

When it comes to organising your wardrobe for the summer, it's important you have fun with it. 

Summer fashion is all about experimenting and mixing up light fabrics with dark colours to create a wardrobe perfect for the warm weather.

Make sure to inject your personality throughout your summer outfits. Whether you're a fan of black biker boots or partial to a statement bag, don't hesitate to pair them with your favourite summer pieces. 

This will give your summer style a unique edge that sets you apart from everyone else.


Always be prepared 

If you’re the friend that always moans because they’re cold (we all have one), it’s a good idea to be prepared. 

If you don’t know where the night will end up, make sure to put an emergency sweatshirt or jacket in the car or your bag - you never know what the weather will be like, so it’s always good to have some just-in-case items at the ready.
