If I had to sum up my ideal approach to fashion in one phrase, it would have to be “minimal effort, maximum impact.” I love outfits that I can throw on and style in no more than five minutes, but when I walk out the door, I could fool people into thinking I spent hours putting them together.
While for some people, clothes are just something they put on in the morning, I have found that my finished look can really have a transformative effect on my mood. I need to feel comfy but also polished to be the most relaxed and confident version of myself.
Thankfully, summer lends itself to the low-maintenance approach to dressing, as you can stick to simple and time-tested combinations. Just think of the power of a linen midi dress, which merely needs a pair of leather sandals to truly sing, or the shorts co-ord that started catching on last year but has really gained a cult following this summer. After all, it’s essentially a ready-made outfit.
So whether you want an ensemble to travel, head to the pub or even go to the office in, I’ve got you covered. Scroll down to see the six easy summer outfits that are anything but boring.
