Five Affordable Summer Fashion Essentials I Can’t Live Without


Recently, I’ve been buying a lot of minimal staple pieces which can be paired with different items ready for summer, and as it’s now officially summer (still not looking like it in the UK though) I thought I’d share my favourite summer staples.

H&M Play suit – Featured already in my OOTD Ft. Waffles post, my black play suit is worn practically every week, it can be dressed up or down and honesty goes with anything.

Anthropologie Cardigan – Another item featured in my latest ootd, Anthropologie is one of my favourite shops, despite me being able to afford next to nothing in there, it has such unusual and beautiful pieces. My Cardigan I wear over the top of everything from dresses, jeans to my play suit.

H&M Striped Top – Stripes can be worn plain or with added patterns/colours and are a staple for any wardrobe.

Topshop Navy Dress – I was looking for a simple navy dress for a while but when I saw this lace one in London I thought it was so cute that I bought it. The down side is, it can’t be as versatile as the other pieces but because it’s quite loose it can be casual or dressy. Unlike the picture I tend to wear it with the sleeves up.

Topshop Heels – I’ve had these ages, but they are the comfiest heels I own (despite being made of wood) they aren’t too high so can be used for different occasions making them perfect for summer.

So here are my staple pieces for summer, what are yours? Do you prefer staples of one of a kind outfits? Being constantly price conscious leaves me relying on staples all the time, to keep coming up with different outfits.
