Summer is a season when you can experiment with different trends and looks, but it can be difficult to find a balance between style and comfort. There’s no point in putting an incredible looking outfit together if you’re going to be unable to move freely or you’re going to be boiling hot. If you’re keen to stay sassy this summer and create a stylish warm weather wardrobe, which is also practical, here are some ideas that will hopefully give you inspiration.

Mastering the ‘throw-on’ Trend
The sun is beating down outside, and you’re eager to make the most of every last drop of sunlight before summer grinds to a halt, and it’s time to get the winter woolies out again. The last thing you want is to waste time trying on every garment in the closet until you find something that’s suitable. The throw-on trend is a must for summer, and the sooner you master it, the easier it will be to ensure you look fab with minimal effort. To get this look right, invest in some key staples such as cotton sun dresses, jersey maxis, and pleated midi skirts. Once you’ve got the basics sorted, all you need to do is add some shades and some sandals, and you’re good to go. Stick to light fabrics, and opt for an oversized fit if you’re after a more casual vibe. To tick off a few trends in one go, look out for cold shoulders, Bardot styles, nautical stripes and country-style gingham prints.

Learning to Accessorise
If you don’t want to buy an entirely new collection of clothes for summer, but you want to look and feel fantastic, accessories are an excellent investment. You can put your stamp on any outfit with jewellery or statement headwear, or you could try unique Eyewearhaus frames if you wear glasses. Switching up your accessories or buying eye-catching, quirky pieces will give you so much more flexibility when it comes to creating outfits. You can make a basic maxi dress look completely different by focusing on the details. Opt for shades, a straw trilby, loose bangles, a cross-body bag and leather sandals for a cool daytime look or team your dress with wedges, an oversized tote, sophisticated frames and an embellished collar for a chic evening ensemble.

Celebrating your Individual Style
Summer is a wonderful time for fashionistas because the rules tend to go out of the window and you can be more playful and experimental. If you want to wear bold colors and bright shades, you can. If you want to try out the festival look and wear ripped shorts, a fedora, and neon-framed glasses, there’s nothing stopping you. Celebrate your individual style, have fun and give new looks a go. Try different styles in the privacy of a fitting room or your bedroom, and then you don’t need to worry if you can’t quite pull off some of the looks as well as you hoped.

It’s summer, and if you want to add some sass to your wardrobe, this is a perfect time to do just that. Have fun shopping around, look for inspiration online, and go for styles that look great, but are also comfortable and easy to wear.
