During the summertime, we are extra grateful to live so close to Greece - just a few hours car ride and we are on holiday! Whether it’s early morning walks in the sand, beach days swimming in the sea, or sunset picnics, I'm always looking for the perfect summer outfit. Keep reading to see some of my favourite staples for summer that I keep on rotation since coming back home..
No, you are not saying goodbye to skinny jeans forever. Skinny jeans and pants aren’t going anywhere anytime soon (at least in my wardrobe), but there are other denim styles you should get your hands on – and that’s the wide leg pants. They’re versatile with the perfect fit and feel so much better than your favourite jeans. With an array of colours to pick from and a flattering wide silhouette, these pants make the ultimate foundation piece for any outfit. Style them for work with a pair of pumps or breeze through the weekend in them with sneakers.
Here is your go-to outfit that will leave everyone speechless - wide-leg pants with delicate embroidered off-the-shoulders bohemian top.
Off-the-shoulder ruffles give your shoulders all the attention and paired with wide-leg pants, your look will transform into something a bit more delicate. These two pieces together are classic pairings done by glamorous 50s movie stars. Have a go at this look and see if you don’t turn a few heads yourself.
To give you a little lift in the leg, a high heel or a platform paired with wide-leg pants is a stunning duo. Although the wide-leg pants will cover the shoes most of the time, it’s the height and the confidence that this combination gives. For summer nights I wore mine wide-leg pants with platform sneakers with the exact same shade for extra height but in the early fall I'm planning on wearing these pants with platform boots as well.
My closet is filled with natural fibers and textures like raffia, straw, and jute. I love bringing elements of the natural world into my style , especially in the summertime.
Hats are an essential accessory for me all year long, with straw wide-brim hats being an absolute must in the summer months. A well constructed boater hat like this one is a summer staple that will transition seamlessly from the pool or beach to an afternoon or even evening outing.
My love for woven bags has been around for years, and only continues to grow as new styles emerge with unique details and designs. The soft texture and added structure of a natural fiber wicker, straw or raffia bag compliments a variety of looks, from denim to dresses. Woven totes and bucket bags offer room to toss in everything I may need during the day, while smaller bags and clutches with fun woven patterns and intricate details are my favourite to carry in the evening when all I need are the essentials.
