We’ve come to that time of year where it’s all about long summer days, parties a plenty and Christmas with friends and family. So, what will you wear throughout the festive season? If you’re feeling less than enthused about the options in your wardrobe then look no further than the following 12 ladies who will have you looking stylish for the 12 Days of Christmas and beyond. From accessories to on-trend hues and patterns to play with, there’s no better time than now to really have fun with fashion.
Rock a statement skirt
A flowy skirt in a striking pattern can become the cornerstone of most summer looks. Add pared back accessories and it will make its mark.
Opt for a standout jumpsuit
I’ve spoken in the past about how a jumpsuit is an easy option for those days when you’re having a wardrobe crisis and this summer it’s right on trend. Take it up a notch and go for a striking print that’s destined to stand out in a crowd.
Gladiator sandals elevate a floaty sun dress
Add a pair of minimalist gladiator sandals to your wardrobe and it’s guaranteed to get quite the workout over summer. They work beautifully with a sun dress, but can also be teamed with a skirt, shorts and culottes so they’re ultra versatile.
Pair a side tie skirt with a white tee
A side tie skirt paired with a classic white t-shirt is a great outfit option for enjoying a long lazy lunch in the sun. It’s understated casual with just the right amount of polish.
Floral accessories add a feminine touch to an outfit
Embrace all things floral this season. A great bag with a beautiful bloom motif adds a girly touch to any ensemble.
High waisted pants are an elegant option throughout summer
A pair of high waisted pants when paired with a cami or simple tee looks très chic. When it’s also in a classic white it elevates the look into a sleek ensemble for dinner or drinks.
An all white look feels fresh and modern
You may want to skip the spaghetti bolognese at lunch with an outfit like this but nothing beats an all white look. Paired with tan and gold accessories to add colour accents, it looks fresh with just a touch of glam.
Jazz up an outfit with the addition of hair accessories
I’ve spoken before about the popularity of scarves as a hair accessory and this summer, make it your mission to add one to your wardrobe. Whilst it looks great as a hair tie or headband, you could also use it as an accent on your favourite bag or a casual belt with your favourite denim pieces.
A matching set looks ultra polished
There’s something about a matching set that looks polished with minimal effort. A slinky cami with a pair of wide leg pants looks sleek and sexy.
Have fun with printed culottes
Now is the time to have fun with prints and colour. A pair of culottes in an eye-catching print has an impactful presence and works well with slides and sandals for day but can easily be paired with heels for a night out.
Change up your footwear with espadrille wedges
Whilst slides are very much the footwear of choice this season don’t forget about the classic espadrille wedge. It’s a great option for when you want your shoes to feel a little dressier and works well with denim and the super popular off the shoulder style top.
Embrace the floaty maxi dress
A maxi dress is the ideal option for heading from beach to bar. Don’t be afraid to have fun with it! Embrace prints and make a statement.
