Summer Staples: what’s your wardrobe missing? 

Finally it feels like summer is nearly here, and what better way to celebrate than by sprucing up your wardrobe? At last, the wellies and winter coats can be put into hiding; it’s time to don the shorts and shades! But before you start searching for new outfits and finding the best summer plus size swimwear for you, really think about what clothes you need for the different summer events. From weddings to holiday wear, here’s a selection of must-have items for 2013. Disclosure: This is a featured post!


The beauty of summer is that it’s a great excuse to take to the beach. Whether you’re brave enough to try UK sands or are lucky enough to be heading abroad, either way, you’re going to need some stylish swimwear for the occasion. But what to choose? Vintage is one to watch out for. Bringing 1950s fashion back to the 21st century, vintage swimwear is bang on trend and offers plenty of scope. From dainty ditsy florals to pretty polka dot prints, there are lots of lovely ways you can rock retro this summer.


No girl’s wardrobe is complete without the addition of a maxi or two. There’s no denying it, it’s a definite summer staple dress; the perfect outfit for a wide range of occasions. Attending a wedding in the next couple of months? Looking for something classy, elegant and fitting for summer? Then the maxi is the option to go for. Its fresh floaty feel and effortless style makes it the ultimate transition piece from day to night. Coupled with a cute pair of wedges, a simple clutch and a light jersey shrug for the evening, you’ll be more than ready for the wedding paparazzi.


If you’re looking for an outfit that’s guaranteed to look good on a night out, then we recommend that you invest in the classic ‘little black dress’. Available in a whole host of cuts and styles, LBDs are a timeless addition that every wardrobe needs. Although summer is famously full of bright colours and extravagant prints, we still insist that you consider buying one. On those nightmare evenings when you can’t decide what to wear, the weather’s being unpredictable and you haven’t got the time to search through your wardrobe, LBDs are there to save the day. Whether it’s a sleek and sexy floor length number or a gorgeously girly cocktail dress, the choice is yours!
