As we are already well into July, I thought I would share my summer outfit essentials! There are a few key peices that everyone needs in their wardrobe, and these are mine!
My style is simple, neutral tones and wearable high fashion - to see what I need in my closest for solid summer outfits, read more!
To shop these looks, just click the image (or visit Aritiza, because that's pretty much where everything is from #sorry)!
Summer fashion is my second fav fashion season (right behind fall fashion) because clothing becomes to easy to wear! Everything that comes out is in a light, super wearable material and is made to be worn in the sun! I try my best to stick with these types of materials best I can throughout summer!
Wear I shop for these essentials:
Like I said before, pretty much everything I got is from Artizia (again, #sorry). It is by far my fav store and my go-to place for essentials, formal, work clothing... the list continues! But most places (*cough* *cough* dynamit) have knock-off's of everything trending from Artizia! I choose to get the "real-deal" souly because fashion is important to me and I enjoy the quality and fit (and label) that comes with purchasing from Artizia!
Lets break down where each essential is from!
The Perfect Swim Suit: for me, is a plain, well fitted, black bikini - fun swim suits with cut outs and new styles are AMAZING but when it comes to hoping on a boat, swimming in the Bow or laying out in the sun, a plain bikini is more reliable! I purchased this one above from Garage like 3 years ago and it's still in great condition and fits really well! It is one of those "knock-offs" of a Triangl Bikini!
A great pair of Denim Shorts: LEVI'S LEVI'S LEVI'S!!!! YOU NEED LEVI'S! best pair of shorts i've ever purchased, and I bought them from Plenty, but they can be found at the Levi's store as well! The fit is perfect, they don't stretch and they look great! Enough said!
Light Weight Pants: These are a summer NEED! You can't wear shorts ALL summer, you gotta be able to switch it up and have something to wear when its 27 degree's but also thunder showering in one day! The pant that I bought as my light weight summer pants is the CEBU Community pant from Aritzia! They are a jogger style pant (thats also great for wearing to class come fall) that I pair with a body suit for a put-together, east look!
Fabric Shorts: Jean is the first summer go to for shorts, but having a couple options for fabric shorts make summer way for comfortable! I purchased the Bertaud Short in Black from Artizia to wear when jean is just to much! I purchased a white crop t-shirt to go with them - pair with an oversized jean jacket and you have the perfect, comfy but super high style summer look!
The Strapless Top: Such a summer essential because HELLO no tan lines! (not that I tan regardless) and they are super cute and trending right now! The one I purchased is, again, from aritzia! It the Babaton VONNEGUT body suit and it is surprisingly comfortable! The fact that it's a body suit makes it even more wearable!
Flip Flops: one word answer - Havaiana's. Best flip flops i've ever bought, they have never given me a blister and they are durable and water proof!! (I wear mine in the lake all summer long!)
Lash Extensions: I am such a big fan of eye lash extensions! I Get mine done at Eye Candy Lash & Beauty Bar located in SW Calgary! They do such an amazing job and my classic set always ends up looking like a volume set! I recommend these all year long (with a month break every once in a while to keep your lashes healthy) but especially for summer, because you can wear them swimming!
Easy to Wear Jewelry: Everyone needs some easy, everyday jewelry to wear! I have a charm bracelet from pandora that I always wear! Its light weight and easy and super cute! I always wear my Fossil heart necklace that my boyfriend got me last year! Urban Outfitter's and Plenty has really great cheap options for light cute accessories to wear!
These are what I need in my wardrobe for summer '17! I'm still looking for some new summer looks that are great for fall fashion as well! I've seen a couple trends that I want to jump on for late summer - early fall and I will post a haul when I find the perfect looks!
Hope you enjoyed my summer outfit essentials! Comment below what you need in your closet this summer or what trends you are loving right now! I always love finding inspiration in others looks and want to see yours!
