Each year, there are different trends, outfits and pieces that I tend to gravitate towards and my Summer 2017 style favourites revolve very much around white cotton. This involves bardot tops, oversized shirts and of course, a classic white shirt dress. I, personally am not one for getting a whole new wardrobe for each season, so the pieces that I do choose tend to be universal, classic and timeless pieces that, when adapted can be worn in not only different seasons, but also in years to come. That being said, there are a few pieces you can purchase to incorporate into your yearly capsule wardrobe.

Due to the shirt aspect of the dress, it’s already a more formal piece of attire, however depending on the occasion and the right accessories, it can be dressed up or down to make it more formal or casual. To make it more daytime appropriate, you could throw over a denim jacket over your shoulders and pop on a pair of causal trainers.

You can’t really go wrong with a pair of dainty sandals. They can be worn pretty much whenever and with whatever you want. I like to think of a lovely pair of sandals as a good alternative to a pair of ankle-breaking heels particularly if you’re using public transport or going to a garden party in which the grass-sinking ground is most definitely not your friend!

Oversized shirts can be pretty hard to pull off, and I believe it all comes down to the initial shirt and the fit. You can wear an oversized shirt in various different ways, which will help make it work for you – all hanging out, tucked in or go for a middle ground of half in, half out. If you don’t want to fork out for your own oversized shirt, you could always raid your dad or brother’s wardrobe for one!

There’s nothing like showing some shoulder cleavage by wearing a gorgeous bardot top or dress. Bardot is one of those pieces that regardless or shape, weight or size, would look amazing on anyone! Nowadays, with bardot being a major trend this season, there are so many variations of the classic bardot top/dress, particularly the incorporation of bardot and embroidery or a traditional crochet detail on the sleeve or trim.

If there’s ever a time to crack open a fresh pair of white trainers, it’s in summer, I always buy a new pair of converses (or two)! Converses should be an absolutely staple in everyone’s wardrobe as they can go with so many items. Another classic pair of white kicks are Adidas Stan Smiths - a classic, trendy trainer.

What are some of your favourite pieces for summer?
