When it comes to finding summer wardrobe staples, you might think that you need a wardrobe full of pretty dresses. But in reality, the tops you buy for summer will be the most versatile and popular pieces in your wardrobe. The right top can be worn almost anywhere. Dressed up or down, a new summer top is one piece you’ll never regret investing in.
Ideal for pairing with shorts, jeans, or light cotton trousers, these are the three summer tops we just can’t live without:
Keep Cool in a Kimono
Kimono style tops are ideal for going from work to play. Pair with fitted black trousers and court shoes for a full day in the office then swap for bright red heels and you’re ready to hit the town! Light and airy sleeves make kimono style tops a great choice for red hot days, and they’re flattering on almost every figure.
Going on holiday? This kimono style top is a great choice for a day of sightseeing. Offering full shoulder coverage, this top is perfect for exploring local churches and monuments. It looks great paired with fitted shorts – an outfit that is as practical as it is stylish.
Lounge in Leopard Print
Leopard print is one of this season’s hottest trends. Ideal for injecting pattern and vibrancy into any outfit, leopard print is a great way to upgrade a simple blouse or t-shirt, taking you from drab to fab in seconds.
We’re in love with loose-fitting leopard print blouse, which is a great piece for covering up on cooler summer evenings. It would look fantastic paired with denim cut-offs for a low-key trip to the local beer garden with your girlfriends and can be dressed up with a pair of leather leggings and vibrant heels for a summertime date night look.
Leopard print is flattering on any skin tone and is a statement pattern that is sure to turn heads.
Shine in a Shirt
Think button-up shirts are only good for office wear? It’s time to think again. A shirt is one of the most versatile pieces you can have in your summer wardrobe. Yes, it looks great worn with wide-legged trousers in the office, but you can do so much more with it than that!
Pair this leopard print shirt with denim cut-offs and metallic sandals for an effortless lunch date look. Wear it open over a simple black swimsuit or bikini to create a statement beach outfit. Pop it on over your favourite little black dress for a day of sightseeing on your next holiday. The right shirt really will take you anywhere! Invest in a new shirt this summer, and you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.
