I know it’s already August but I thought we should talk about some seasonal staples. Having a good base of wearable clothes in your wardrobe is essential for developing your own style and going for that sustainable fashion life. What clothing pieces your wardrobe consist of though, changes from season to season and here’s the summer wardrobe 2018 according to me. Just a mix of clothes that are both trendy and timeless!

Summer Wardrobe 2018
Midi Skirt – Duh, is there a better or more relevant clothing piece than the midi skirt this summer? Think not! The midi skirt is a versatile clothing piece as the length is the only requirement for qualifying which makes it suitable for all different styles. You can either go preppy with ruffles and a stylish print or more street style with some transparent layers. Perfect on days that are a bit chilly or if you just want to give your legs a break from the sun.
The Gingham Print – The popularity of the gingham print is growing and it’s a print you must try this summer if you’re only reaching for one. Gingham has a pleasant retro vibe to it, which makes it nice to contrast with more contemporary pieces like culottes or anything patent leather. Catch more ideas here.
Chunky Colorful Sweater – If there’s only one piece you need for colder summer evenings it’s a chunky colorful sweater. Pastels are always sweet but it’s also fun to reach for some energizing neon or the primary shades. A chunky sweater is easy to match as it’s favorable for layering, like with a midi dress or so!
White T-shirt – A basic tee is a must for the 365 days of the year as we all know, and it’s definitely a must in your wardrobe for summer. The multifunctional clothing piece can be matched with anything and is a neutral as it gets. The key to finding the right white t-shirt is to choose a style that you prefer. Is it perhaps a v-neckline? A bit oversized? In cotton or in linen? Be sure to be specific and you’ll have a life-long friend!
Statement Sneakers – Your feet’s best friend this summer is undoubtedly a pair of sneakers. The sneakers have for some seasons now been considered okey to match with preppy looks and are as relevant as any pair of heels. I wrote an entire trend alert on the dad sneakers here if you want to learn more!
Wrap Blouse – The wrap blouse is here to stay and definitely so this summer. The clothing piece adds a nice detail to any outfit with the wrap style and as it often comes in preppy colors and prints, it’s a nice addition to the summer fashion. Love to pair the wrap blouse with a pair of denim shorts, or a skirt if I want to go for a layered look.
Plaid Blazer – Fair enough that the plaid blazer is slightly more suitable for the fall style, but I do think they’re chic to layer with for summer as well. If you’re working a plaid blazer that’s leaning towards an 80s look, be sure to balance it with some modern elements. I do think one outfit of summer is the plaid blazer with a white t-shirt and some denim shorts.
Slippers/Mules – Lastly, another nice pair of shoes for summer are the slippers. They’re comfy, they’re casual and they’re chic. I mean, what is there not to love? I wrote an article here if you want some ideas on styling, what’s trendy and inspiration!
Folks! What does your summer wardrobe 2018 look like? Let’s chat in the comments! Xx

Nothing like a wrap blouse, tee or midi skirt! 🙂 I’ve been wanting a good pair of sneakers but haven’t decided on which pair just yet. For now I’m just wearing my actual trainers hahaha… >.<
I know, haha great staples for sure!! Ahh but that sounds comfortable! Xx
Yesssss chunky colourful jumpers! I’m going to be ALL about those during this year’s upcoming colder months. There’s already some gorgeous options hitting stores and I’m so tempted to start mass-buying right now even though there’s a still a heatwave going on in the UK haha. Hope you’re having a lovely week so far!!
Hahah yes me too! So excited for the colorful life.
I still haven’t gone on vacation yet – just a couple of weeks away – so, I will be taking these summer tips with me! I am all about those midi skirts and wrap blouses. I need help styling statement sneakers – SOS, LOL xx
Hahah ohh just work them with a pair of jeans and you’ll be fine babe!! Xx
These are some of my favorite pieces to wear during summer! Especially midi skirt. I love wearing them all season long!!
Yess, the midi skirt is great!! Xx
I love bold colored sweaters! I actually recently added a beautiful green shade to my collection that I’m really excited about wearing. It’s a bit thicker, so it’s more suitable for the fall and winter. I need to think outside of the box when it comes to cool summer evenings. I mostly reach for my cardigans or denim jacket, but a bold pull over would be a great option, too! Thanks for the inspiration, as always, beauty, and I hope you’re having a great start to your week so far!
