5 Essentials for Summer

Whether or not, you’re like us and you’re new to minimalist dressing; you’ve spent your Winter in iso on a total rampage through your closet, hell bent on creating a capsule wardrobe. Only to realise that none of your Summer items spark joy, or you’re already on the minimalist style train and your annual audit has revealed a few gaps. I’ve learned on my journey sifting through the Minimalist minds of others who have generously documented all their best tips for Summer dressing, that for a stylish but effortless, summer wardrobe, there a few staple items that are a must.


1. Summer Dress

Find the cut that works for you and then get one in every colour (sorry, my maximalist tendencies taking over again). Cottons and linens look expensive without breaking the bank and make an impact with cut-outs that show a little skin, statement button detailing and even a pretty tie at the waist.

2. Chic Sandals

I’ve grown fond of a flat can actually be worn all day—and for Summer that means a sandal that can be worn with anything, anywhere. When you have a pair of semi dressy, but simple flat sandals, your Summer wardrobe is going to be a lot easier to style. A black and tan pair of our Minogue sandals and you’re set!

3. A Carry All Bag

A bag that has you covered no matter what the day throws at you. It fits all your essentials. Almost Mary Poppins styles, need a little extra light? Just pull out your own standing lamp. No worries.

4. The Perfect White Tee

A thick cotton boxy boyfriend tee is my go-to all year round really. It’ll turn any pair of winter pants into a fresh Summer outfit in a flash.
