Summer Staples, Maxi’s, Trainers and Basket Bags

Good afternoon everyone, todays post is on my summer staples. I have so much fun styling during the summer months, is it just me or are you the same?! What I love is that I can go bold with the colours and prints should I choose to do so or go neutral. Yes there are times that I will go for the high end but I do also love those affordable ones too! Like most of you I will head to Zara or H&M as they do so many wonderful summer dresses, tops and bottoms. My other summer staples include a basket bag of some sort as well as some flats!

SUMMER DRESSES

It’s scorching hot at the moment over here in Dubai and I have been living in voluminous, backless easy dresses. So this will be dresses that doesn’t hug my body unless I am heading out in the evenings. Currently my summer staples include dresses, a pair of comfortable trainers and a large basket bag. My go-to has been this beige midi dress from Zara paired with my white Superga trainers/sneakers and my Loewe basket bag. Not to forget my sunglasses which are a must for me, this pair is from Rayban.

SUMMER TOPS

When it comes to summer tops I do love a white top! My favourite kind is a Bardot style, but there are so many other styles to get your hands. If you are not afraid of prints then by all means why not go for them.

SUMMER BOTTOMS

Next and moving onto summer bottoms, when it comes to trousers I do love the flared or wide leg type personally. For me a pair of Bermuda shorts is also a perfect summer bottom. Last but not least skirts, which ever style you like whether it’s a maxi, midi or a mini again there are so many wonderful pieces.

BASKET BAGS

Moving on and onto basket bags which for me scream summer. I do love a basket bag and if you missed my post on them, then why not take a look HERE. They are light weight and easy to carry around. Also they are ever so handy as I can fit a whole bunch of things in them especially the large bags like my Loewe one.

WHITE TRAINERS

Finally one of my go-to summer staples is a pair of white sneakers/trainers. My other favourite is flip flops but I thought I would leave it out as not everyone lives in a hot country like me most of the time. Again just like basket bags white sneakers/trainers scream summer to me. So simple yet when paired with a maxi dress they just look super cool but still maintaining a put together look!

    Agreed, I enjoy styling summer outfits. But, when the next season gets close I get the itch to style for it. It happens every time! That H&M leopard dress is really cute.

    Qué genial look, las gafas, el vestido blanco. Todo muy genial, abrazos. Felicitaciones por lucir con esa infinita elegancia. Saludos desde El Blog de Boris Estebitan.

    I love the outfit that you are wearing! I couldn’t agree more, something flowing is perfect for the hotter days. I love a flowing trouser /culottes in summer, especially if the weather is due to change, like here in the UK.
    Thanks for sharing!

    I loved all the examples that you included, examples the pants. I don’t really have any summer staple pieces as my clothes don’t really change with the seasons tbh, I mostly only add a sweater in the winter. This is a great look Lovely!
