My Summer Travel Outfit Classics

Sharing is caring!

Hello, hello! For the past few months I have been noticing a tremendous change in my summer outfit choices. I’m not sure if it’s because I have been travelling around Southeast Asia for a few months, but I seem to have developed an affection for tropical colours and patterns.

Summer is also upon us and that’s why I thought it would be a great idea to create this post to share with you my favourite outfit ideas for a dreamy summer escapade!

The White Shirt/Blouse

I used to shy away from white and stuck with black, but that day is no more. There’s something simple and elegant about a soft white blouse, and the fact that the white keeps you cool during the hot summer months is a great bonus!

If you’re worried a white blouse might be too boring for you, choose a white blouse with an interesting cut or detail, and pair it with some colourful accessories to jazz up your outfit!

The Maxi Dress

One of my absolute favourite wardrobe essential for every season! A great maxi dress with the right fabric, cut, and pattern that can take you from day to night is a worthy investment in your wardrobe.

For summer, pick a light fabric such as linen, cotton or jersey. For those who are concerned about maxi dresses being too hot to wear in summer, I actually find maxi dresses to be quite airy. Make sure to find one that allows breeze and ventilation to pass through.

I love choosing maxi dresses that can not only transition from day to night, but also from hot to cold seasons, with the help of layers and accessories.

The Wrap Skirt

Another versatile piece that easily transitions from day to night. The key here is to pick a print that’s unique and stands as a statement on its own. Personally, I prefer a satin wrap skirt because I love the luxurious look and feel of satin, and not to mention it’s really light and cool to wear in summer.

There are so many ways to wear a satin wrap and on so many occasions. You can pair it with basics for a casual look during the day, wear it with slinky heels and shiny accessories for a night out, and even wear it as a cover-up at the beach. If you’re not used to prints, start small with a simple print or even a monochromatic print.

The Denim Skirt

Denim skirt with the right wash and right length is a great piece to have in your summer wardrobe that goes with literally anything! Dark and white colours are great for a dressy night out and light to medium wash blue denim skirts are great to create a casual look.

Nothing spells summer like denim and I always implement this piece in my summer outfit essentials. Personally, I love skirts but you can definitely swap it with a pair of denim shorts!

The Linen

Day

Linen and summer go together like the 4th of July and apple pie. This material is just oh-so-breathable and crisp that you can wear it from day to night.

A structured linen dress make such an effortlessly stylish summer outfit. Light coloured linen shorts and trousers with a linen blazer spell cool and elegant. You can easily style it with colourful accessories to give it a dose of that summer sunshine, or go minimalistic neutral.

Conclusion

So these are all the summer pieces that I have been loving and will be for quite a long time. Each piece is uber versatile and I love how I can play it up and play it down with the accessories I pair it with. That’s why summer accessories such as sandals, woven and pearl bags, sunnies, and colourful satin headbands are a must for summer!

I hope that you’ve enjoyed this post as much as I loved creating the outfits and lookbook! If you have any summer favourites that you would like to share, please comment below!
