A Guide To Laid Back Summer Style

casual summer outfit blog post uk

On a day to day basis, I find that I tend to stick to really casual outfits when I’m not out at an event or in meetings. I like to be as comfortable as possible but I also really like to stay looking feminine too. I try to keep a casual outfit sexy by adding some cool shades or sandals and sometimes a hat or a bold lipstick works too. Here are my top tips on how to get that laid back sexy style for the super laid back summer that’s coming!

Always Include A Staple

Staples are the basics that you base most outfits around. For me it’s a pair of jeans or a jacket that goes with everything.  Denim skirts and plain dresses can work really well here too.

The Statement Top

A statement item doesn’t have to be bold colours and crazy pattens. I love to make an understated statement with a top like this textured white tee by R Edition for La Redoute. Another hot trend right now is a tasseled bottom top or a striped crop round neck top which both look amaze with jeans.

Strapy Sandels

This is one of my favourite trends right now. I love either platform sandals or thick strapped sandals with ankle ties. I found this gorgeous pair in Next and I really love the Khaki green colour too. Go for a suede or suedette pair to really make the contrast stand out and I would recommend either a tan or earthy colour for that festival boho look thats going on right now.

Go for a pair of bold or funky shaped glasses to really set your laid back style off. I prefer black as it keeps the outfit really elegant. Go for the mirror blue lens style glasses if you want to stand out without make up or a hat. I’ve kept it simple with this pair of Round Ray-bans.

The Straw Hat

Yep..the good old straw hat! It comes back with a vengeance year on year and will probably always be a summer staple. This year the trend is a hat with tassels, feathers or a frayed ribbon like this Mango Straw Hat. There are some stunning styles out there and I think next time I will go for a thick weave straw hat with a white band. I’m a shopaholic at heart!
