If you were to buy 3-4 outfits to pull together a 'summer' wardrobe, what would they be?
Must be for casual wear, with say, one, smart-casual. Would love some ideas and links please to put me on the right track! I don't do short skirts in the summer (think skinny, varicose veiny legs!), am small of norkage and a bit too round of tummy. Have jeans, the Uniglo cargo skinnies and a couple of cardigans (grey, navy/White stripe, cream) but little else. Footwear also required - must be comfortable for lots of walking.
Is anyone up for the challenge .... the more links the better!
My summer staples: skinny jeans, couple of colourful scarfs, maxi dress that goes with flats, some great fitting vests, couple pairs of funky flipflops, fitted knee length shorts and a few pairs of patterned or coloured sunglasses i.e. H&M ones.
Thanks for the replies! Blazer is a great idea - would like navy though and the Uniglo one only comes in black - gah! Did try the Boden jersey blazer but it wasn't a good fit on me. Okay, chinos - will put on my list.
Anything else please? Tops, footwear, more blazer links .....
I love that uniqlo blazer in navy. I have never bought anything from there before so could someone please advise me: I am a size 12 so what size would be tghe best for me to order? Also are the sleeves 3/4 length? I have long arms, will that look a bit 'odd' on me?
Also can anyone say why the Boden blazer was not a good fit? Thanks!
