6 Summer Staples Your Wardrobe Can't Live Without

Posted On - 13 Oct 2016

Whether you need to re-build your existing wardrobe or you're starting fresh, here are 6 classic pieces to love this summer.

Trends come and go but perfect basics never go out of style. Every wardrobe needs timeless pieces that can be repeated season after season; clothing that will work for you no matter what the newest trend happens to be.

So what are the ingredients of a killer wardrobe? We've taken a cue from Elisha Casagrande, Personal Stylist and Founder of Repeat Offender, with her top 6 summer staples.

1. The White Shift
White adds a freshness to any look and brings out your natural glow. Throw it on over a bikini when you're hitting the beach or pair it with some cute flats for your Sunday breakfast catch-ups.

2. The Denim Short
A great pair of denim shorts can take you a long way. For a classic casual look, pair them with a plain white tee. Take the look from day to night by throwing on a black blazer.

3. The White Cami
The quintessential wardrobe piece. A must for every wardrobe and the ultimate layering piece for all occasions.  A plain, cotton cami acts as a blank canvas making it the perfect accompaniment for any look.

4. The Chambray Shirt
Nothing says effortless cool like a chambray shirt. Go for a slightly oversized stylefor something more versatile – throw it over a dress for breezy summer days, wear it tucked in or button it right up and pair with a midi skirt for night. You can’t go wrong with a chambray shirt tied around the waist!

5. The White Short
I’m very partial to white-on-white. A relaxed style will keep the look effortless whether it’s a lunch date or a day of shopping.

6. The Striped Tank
A striped tank can be so versatile with endless layering and pairing possibilities.  A relaxed fit is perfect for those warmer days to keep you comfortable and casual.
