Often the transition between seasons can mean a revamp of style, a struggle with how to adapt winterwear to look suitably summery or trying to make forgotten looks from summers past work now (even though they were stylish in approx. 2005). There’s no right way to do summer clothes, and it’s all about feeling good about yourself in the sun, but we have a couple of tips for those of you struggling to sort your sun-drenched style out.
Loose and girly
Summer is always the time to inject some feminine charm into your closet if you feel like rejuvenating your look after a winter of greys, black and wool scarves. Girliness works best when it looks effortless, as if you’ve simply been inspired by the sun streaming through your windows (hopefully), and loose fitting clothes will make sure you’re totally comfy and not feeling constrained in the heat.
When in doubt, the simplest and arguably coolest (both in terms of fashion and actual body temperature) look to go for is all-white. There’s no fear of sweat patches, it looks great with a tan and frankly, white goes with anything, so just a couple of capsule white garments in your wardrobe could go so much further than just one outfit.
It’s always a little harder when the sun’s out for tomboys to properly maintain their boyishly cool aesthetic, when the shops are stocked with florals, frills and feminine tones. Don’t abandon the look just because things are a little trickier in the heat, there are plenty of ways to make sure you’re looking and feeling cool, without having to out your trainers away.
