I love preparing for a new season. It’s an opportunity to take stock of the clothes I own and figure out what pieces are missing. Spring-summer, like autumn-winter, is blurred in terms of the key wardrobe pieces that you can wear. All you need to do is make subtle adjustments to make your spring wardrobe summer-ready.
And guess what? I am here to show you how. Instead of a straight replacement, think of these suggestions as add ons to your spring wardrobe.
Here are my top tips on how to transition your wardrobe from spring to summer.
TROUSERS +/- SHORTS
Spring is slightly too cold commit to getting your legs out full time. Save that for summer and make sure you have variety in your shorts collection.
COTTON +/- LINEN
Every season has a fabric staple, and linen is the summer fabric hero. Whether you are on vacation to spending it in the city, everyone needs to benefit from the performance quality of linen.
COLOURS +/- PRINTS
While summer colours are needed to bright brightness to your wardrobe, nothing can do that quite like a summer print. From a resort shirt to swim shorts, make sure you stand out in style.
LIGHT JACKETS +/- NO JACKETS
Sometimes life is much easier when you don’t have to wear a jacket. This way, your outfit can shine without the needing to layer.
SNEAKERS +/- SANDALS
While I prefer a sneaker to a sandal, especially in the city, summer is the perfect opportunity to flex your ugly toes show them off to the world. Give your sandals a modern upgrade with gladiator to chunky silhouettes.
T-SHIRTS + VESTS
When the weather gets too unbearable, you need to find ways of wearing fewer clothes as possible.
