The ability to remix your wardrobe is an indicator of great style, and the best way to stretch your wardrobe budget. Apart from mixing and matching your separates, think of essential pieces that can spice up your style even more. To get your styling juices flowing, check out the 6 essential pieces that will help to refresh your summer wardrobe.
- Brightly-Colored Shoes or Heels
If head-to-toe neon isn’t your thing, why not get in on the trend with brightly colored shoes. Cobalt blue, red, neon yellow, lime green and such are some of the punchy colors that can add life to your summer style. If you’re heading to a formal occasion, think of snake print pumps in bright green shade that can spice up your summer whites. For a preppy statement, think of red platform sneakers that will look great with your white top and printed skirt.
- Camouflage Print Jacket or Denim Jacket
A nice tailored blazer may be one of the perfect toppers for any summer ensembles. But camouflage print jackets and denim jackets will make your summer style more effortless and cool. Use your casual jackets to dress down summer outfits for your street style, or throw one on over your casual weekend outfits to block the evening chill. Just look for options in breathable lightweight fabrics like cotton or chambray to keep you breezier.
- Striped Top
The Breton striped t-shirt is a true classic. Though it never goes out of style, going for different stripe versions will make your street looks unique. Think of a wrap blouse with horizontal stripes that will look chic with a pair of skinny jeans and loafers. Candy striped tee will refresh your basic button-down denim skirt, making it look more laid back and cool. Just go for a pair of Birkenstocks to make your statement effortless.
- Ruffled or Scalloped Shorts
Nothing says summertime like a good pair of shorts. Ruffled and scalloped shorts can be a great way to look flirty and feminine on your summer style. Think of a lace blouse, plain tee, or tank top that can be dressed up with you pair of shorts. Though cutoff shorts are a natural choice for the weekend, going for dressier pair of shorts will give you a more polished look while keeping your breezy statement in the warm season.
- Full Skirts
Chic, feminine, and preppy, full skirts in any length can make your street style breezy over pencil skirts that hug your hips. Think of a novelty print tee that can be dressed up with a pastel full skirt in midi length, as well as a plain top that will look perfectly stylish with a pleated printed skirt. Just polish your style with a pair of sneakers or a pair of ankle straps that looks effortlessly cool.
- Neon Bottoms
Since summer is all about wearing punchy colors and blinding shades, trade your classic jeans with neon bottoms. Like fashion blogger Annabelle Fleur, go for a pair of neon shorts that will go well with your striped tee. Just complement your colorful theme with a colorful necklace and brightly colored sandals. Indeed, refreshing your looks this summer will make your street style more cheery and playful, perfect for the season.
