2. Relaxed denim

Every 'fashion person' is wearing jeans right now and in the summer months, it's likely a more relaxed, straight-leg or mum cut, which has basically become a fresh classic in constant rotation on the weekly.

3. Strappy sandals

Featuring either multiple straps, Y-straps, or one thick strap, strappy sandals, are a wardrobe hero to be dressed up or down all summer long.

4. Textured Chain Necklace

In the jewelry realm, chain-link necklaces (either single or layered) are a go-to because they basically pair flawlessly with anything and can instantly elevate other basic pieces. We love matched with non print looks. They'll level up your look.

5 - Tank Dress

The beauty of a tank dress is that it's chic and highly versatile either worn on its own or with statement accessories.  Think oversized white shirt or linen blazer. Its timeless, effortless - yes we are obsessed.

6 - SweatShorts

For sure - trackpants and joggers are a staple all year round, but sweatshorts are proving to be the backbone of summer wardrobes as a comfortable and cool item worn with a T-shirt, tank, blazer, whatever.

7 - VIntage Glassses 

While massive round sunglasses have been swapped out for their cooler, angular cousins, one hallmark of the 70’s remains. Tinted lenses have gone from creepy uncle to chic AF, and you can choose your own adventure when it comes to shade. From orange to pink to lime green for the freaks, technicolour vision is here to stay.

8 - Oversized blazer for every season

I think we underestimate their versatility and how good they look, paired over a dress, shorts, pants - basically everything. The blazer is what we believe to be the most important wardrobe essential and when we  talk blazer I am speaking collectively. I have a “blazer” wardrobe for different seasons, different moods and different occasions. I save them for years and they still work hard and make me feel confident when I wear them.
