Take your Winter Wardrobe Into Summer

Coats, jumpers, cardigans and biker boots. 
The winter classics that we know and love.
But what do you do with them when the weather starts perking up?
Wear them of course!
Your favourite items from the previous winter make for great layering pieces or outfits for summer nights (we know how unpredictable UK summers can be). 
Keep reading for our top tips on how to take your winter favourites through the summer with you.

Use them as a layering item

When daytime beach trips turn into watching the sunset, and beer garden afternoons turn into nights filled with cocktails, mini dresses just won’t suffice. 
This is when layering comes in handy. 
Cardigans and lightweight knits sit perfectly over more floaty items and give you that extra bit of cosiness.
If it’s still a bit too cold to get your arms out, put a mesh or short-sleeved t-shirt underneath your summer dresses, to not only add texture but also keep you warm. 
The infamous denim jacket is an autumn staple, but it's also the perfect item to wear in the warmer months. Style with denim shorts or wide leg jeans to bring back the Britney and Justin iconic moment of the early 2000's and make it modern.
Or what about sweatshirts? Athleisure is slowly becoming a staple look for women everywhere and rightly so.  An oversized sweatshirt paired with cycling shorts and chunky trainers makes for a casual yet chic outfit, perfect for summer evenings.

Tweak your fave winter looks

The majority of winter looks can be worn all year round with just a few simple tweaks. 

If you usually layer up your signature white shirt with a blazer, leave it in your wardrobe and put a lace bralette underneath for a statement twist.

Love a skirt and tights combo? Ditch the tights or go for a lower denier so you can get some well-deserved vitamin D to those legs. 

If you're like the She Selected team and have a whole host of winter jackets, swap them out for something lighter this season. Oversized linen shirts are the perfect layering piece for over tank tops and t-shirts.


Corsets are super on trend at the moment (let’s face it, have they ever not been?), and we’re loving dressing them down by adding a boyfriend style shirt over the top. This Lavish Alice Mesh Corset is the perfect piece to style this summer. 


Get creative 

Summer is the time to think outside of the box when it comes to outfits. 
It’s time for bold prints, contrasting colours and all the accessories you can get your hands on. 
Whether it's for special occasions or casual drinks with friends, having fun with what we have in our wardrobes is our favourite thing to do. Try it for yourself! 
And who knows, you might even discover your new favourite combo.

In the winter, we loved the Kands London Floral Babydoll Dress with a biker boot, leather jacket and tights for an easy yet impactful look. But recently - when the sun decided to put its hat on - we’ve been pairing it with a strappy heel and 90’s inspired shoulder bag for date nights.


Mix and match materials

Materials most associated with winter include velvet, leather, and faux fur. 

But who’s to say you can't wear these in the summer months, too?

Combining contrasting textures creates a more interesting outfit that helps you achieve that cool-girl, groupie aesthetic. 

We’re loving the Kands London leather tank bodysuit to add a point of interest to even the simplest of outfits.  


Don’t forget about accessories

Accessories are an easy and underrated way of changing up a look, without costing you a bomb. 

Using pastel tones, anklets and sandals is an easy way to inject summer into your look. 

If you’re looking for a way to make your items festival appropriate, add braids in your hair, mini backpacks and Y2K inspired jewellery for a fun look for less. 

The best part about accessories is how easily you can dress up a comfy outfit and transform it into something much more stylish. These small details can really amp up your look and transform it into a style that’s on-trend for summer.
