• Nautical Stripes 
Personally, I’m crazy about nautical stripes all year long, but during Summer this obsession takes on new dimensions. And it’s a good thing because this is when stripes are hotter than ever, pun intended 🙂 Be it the classic stripes of Sonia Rykiel, or Vivienne Westwood‘s quirky ones, there’s plenty to choose from!
  • Oversized Bag
If there’s one season when I feel like stuffing everything in my bag and schlepping it around with me that’s Summer! So there is no better moment to switch to an oversized bag that can carry a couple pairs of sunglasses, sunscreen, notebook, pens, phone, ipad, etcetc. Be it a clutch, a satchel, or shopper, this is when bigger is surely better!
  • Neutral Sandals
Flats, wedges, platforms, take your pick, but make it in neutral in order to pair it with everything your heart desires. I love my nude pair of Jeffrey Campbell sandals, but I admit I already have a new shoe crush in the form of a pair of clogs from nude footwear at www.kandco.com/. Need I mention that nude shoewear has the ability of making your legs seem mile high? I think not 😉


  • A denim shirt 

My devotion to denim is proven once more by me adding it to this list. Still, in my defence, I must say that its 100% cotton composition really makes it a great fabric to have on during those hot Summer days.

  • The Printed Mini-Skirt 

Floral, geometric, a mini will look effortlessly chic in Summer, plus simply comfortable!

  • The Shirt Dresses
Whether it’s monocrome, printed, or, shocker, denim, a shirt dress will easily become your go to wardrobe item. Have you seen Rihanna sporting one on the streets of NYC? A tad to short, yes, but still pretty cool.
  • The Maxi-Dress 
Tune in to a 70s vibe, a kaftan, or just go for your favourite print one and wear it with casual flats for during the day, or a long necklace and jewelled sandals for those cool Summer evenings. The difficult task here will be choosing just one of the stylish/comfortable/flattering maxi dresses that are out there.


  • The Jumpsuit/Romper 
Versatile and sleek, you can find this item in virtually any style to suit your mood and personality, and become a style staple.


  • The White Tank 
Some might say that a tank in any color, shape, of form is essential for Summer, yet I would argue that nothing compares to the basic white tee. Pair it with a basic pair of jeans, and some sassy red flats, and you’re set for a great casual chic Riviera outfit.


  • The City Shorts

Shorts are a no-brainer for Summer, still I think we should take that extra step and opt for a pair of tailored shorts. Do wear them with some cute heels and you’re ready to go.

Plus the indispensable
(no description needed 🙂
