Summer Fashion Essentials

blog for women's fashion

There’s no denying the importance of fashion during the summer months. If you’re truly dedicated to looking your best during this time of year it’s important to understand which items are summer fashion essentials 2018. With that in mind, I’ve put together this quick guide for you listing and briefly explaining five important fashion products that every fashion-conscious woman should have during this summer.

1) Wedges.

Wedge sandals are a summer fashion essential for any woman who wants both the benefits of a high-heeled shoe (such as boosting your natural height and putting additional emphasis on the sleek lines of your legs) and the benefits of a sandal (such as keeping your feet and ankles comfortable and secure even if you’re on your feet for long periods of time). Wedges are also a great fashion item due to the fact that they can be paired with virtually any variety of outfit, whether that outfit is formal or casual. They can also be easily put on and taken off as needed, making them an excellent choice if you’re going to the beach or the pool. Both very likely occurrences during the warm summer months.

2) Silk Camisole Tops.

When it comes to summer fashion essentials, silk camisole tops are an absolute must-have piece of clothing. Camisoles, in general, are an excellent summer garment because they are sleeveless by design and very breathable regardless of material. That being said, camisole tops made out of silk are vastly preferable to those most out of nylon or satin. This is because silk is the perfect clothing material for the sweltering summer months. Unlike other types of cloth, silk is great at keeping you cool even in the hottest of temperatures and has the added benefits of also being odour-resistant and quick to dry if it becomes damp. These great qualities combine to make silk camisole tops a true summer essential when it comes to functional fashion.


3) Bodycon Dress.

Derived from the term “body conscious” bodycon dresses are a variety of dress that is designed to be form-fitting. These are a summer fashion essential because of how they can emphasize the sleek and attractive lines of your natural figure. Additionally, bodycon dresses are always made out of stretchy materials, so they are a great choice for comfort as well as style. Bodycon dresses are also very popular because they can be worn to a variety of different functions, both casual and formal (depending on the style and pattern of the dress in question, of course).

Today, I am wearing a Hiroko Dress from Wolford. This slim-fitting dress boasts a striking ring design in contrasting colours thanks to the two-tone knitting technique. This absolute eye-catcher is sleeveless and boasts a boat neckline. I am also wearing a Tulle Forming Dress underneath too, which is sheer and opaque. This chemise plays with contrasts. The stretchy, slightly sheer tulle shapes feminine contours from the stomach to the thigh. The open décolleté leaves room for the bra and has lateral support thanks to the wide straps. What’s not to love?

4) White jacket.

White jackets (this is the white jacket I am wearing here) are also an important part of any good summer wardrobe. Unlike darker jackets which can put a damper on a bright summer outfit (and also cause you to become overheated due to the way dark colours attract and absorb heat), white jackets can add a bit of stylish flair to any outfit, making them a summer fashion essential as well. White jackets are also incredibly versatile. They can be paired with virtually any type of outfit in a complementary way.

5) Oversized sunglasses.

It’s a standard of summer that almost all women wear oversized sunglasses. And while it might not seem like a good fashion choice at first, especially if you’re used to smaller and more sedate sunglasses, there’s no denying that current fashion trends make oversized sunglasses a summer fashion essential for anyone who wants to embrace the true summer style. Generally, oversized sunglasses are viewed as having a bit of film star flair to them. That being said, it’s important to pick sunglasses with frames that work well with the overall shape of your face.

    You look beautiful girl. I love a white blazer. The body con and bag are so chic and the dress fits like a dream on you. 🙂 I hardly wear a silk cami because it’s over 35c and extremely humid where I live but they really are a great summer essential.
    Have a great week!
