What makes an item a staple? Well… in my book, staples have to combine with other pieces with ease, they must have a certain wow factor to act as a statement piece in your look, and lastly, they should be versatile, i.e. can be transitioned from day to night, work for a variety of occasions and stand the test of time. Below, are just a few of my favorite summer staples.
An easy, slouchy, slightly oversized blazer is a must because you will wear it with everything and everywhere. Pair it with jeans, a tank top and cool flats for a relaxed yet elegant look, throw it over a dress to add a bit of polish to your cocktail hour look, or opt for cool biker shorts and heels like I did in this look. Basically styling possibilities are absolutely endless, which is why I love it.
White sandals are always a must. They are a brighter, more fun version of neutrals to wear during simmer. You’ll actually find that white heels pair really well with just about every other color (including those hard to style bold floral prints). This season, opt for an architectural heel, to add an instant dose of style to your look.
A chic little bag! So bags are a bit tricky sometimes since I find that bags are so reflective of personality, but I couldn’t write this post without including the ones that really speak to me. Something about those cute little Jacquemus bags…, am I right? Incredibly chic, fashionable and stylish, they add that instant dose of cool to your look, yet they are incredibly wearable at the same time. Love that!
An unlikely staple and yet it is! Season after season biker shorts prove to be a trendy, comfortable and actually really versatile item to wear. Obviously a great option for your casual looks, I also love they way they look when you dress them up. BTW, another way I like to dress them up is by wearing them with an oversized blouse, like this one for example, and a cool belt!
