Summer wardrobe essentials to up your style game

When it comes to staying on trend, it’s important to know which essentials you need to have in your wardrobe as the seasons go by. These are the items you’ll need to make a success of every outfit, from the simple plain white t-shirt to the most stylish pair of sunglasses; we’ve created a guide on how to look chic throughout the summer.

A plain white tee

You might not think it’s the most exciting item in your wardrobe but a plain white t-shirt can actually help to make your outfit. That’s because you can pair it with almost anything in your wardrobe whether you’re wearing boyfriend jeans, a patterned skirt, or a pair of shorts.


Midi skirts

The time for mini skirts and over the knee boots its over – its time to make way for the midi skirt. Not only will a midi keep you cool but its length allows you to wear it with any type of shoe, whether it’s the day for a strappy heel or a pair of sandals.

Denim jacket

Summer might not be the best time to invest in new outerwear, but we think we can all agree that you can’t go wrong with a denim jacket. Such a versatile piece can keep the chill off from the morning right through to evening.

The perfect sunglasses

Sunglasses are without a doubt the simplest way to accessorise your summer outfit and with many styles to try, you’re bound to find a pair that suits your face shape. This year it’s all about cat eye, round, and rectangular shaped frames.

A co-ord set

For an easy solution to match your clothes, try a co-ord set. They’ve fast become one of the most favoured fashion choices for the office, more practical than a one piece and less corporate than a pantsuit. You can get your hands on your own summer plus size co-ord sets at Ashleigh Plus Size.

A cross body bag

Tis the season that calls for colour. For that reason, why not add an element of fun into your outfit with a boldly coloured cross body bag? Take an outfit from drab to dreamy with a bag in red, royal blue, pink, or yellow.

Ballet flats

Keep your style both practical and chic with a pair of ballet flats that you can wear with your jeans, skirts, and dresses. A standard black pair will tend to be your best bet, but nothing is stopping you from standing out in a bright pair.

Boyfriend jeans

Skinny jeans may ooze style, but on a hot summer’s day, you might be looking for something a little comfier. Boyfriend jeans in lighter blue shades are relaxed and give you the ultimate summer vibe.
