Jeans and a blazer is your go-to uniform? Hot weather’s no reason to stray from what you feel most comfortable in. Just update your combo by adding an airy bandeau, crop, bra or tank top and open sandals. Easy. And breezy. Just add boots in Autumn.
What makes a suit a summer suit? Look for easy fabrics (linen or cotton keep you cool), light or bright colours (to reflect the sun), and oversized, flowy cuts (allowing a steady airflow). Best example: @dolce_masha’s cool, calm, collected head-to-toe ensemble (literally, look at the matching white scrunchie!).
Got your yoga class at 9 but a brunch date at 11? Go for versatile essentials that jump easily from casual to chic (cycling shorts and sneakers) and upgrade them with a beautiful blazer. Not as brave as @anjaliumohan to go topless? Your favourite sports bra is here to cover and support — physically and mentally.
Contrary to popular belief, the best thing about boxy oversized blazers isn’t that they make us feel strong and powerful — although that’s a close runner-up — it’s that they easily double as a dress: Literally just add chunky boots and gold jewellery and don’t add anything else (unless you don’t trust your local wind force, then add cycling shorts).
Like the aforementioned jeans-and-blazer combo but with more leg room (and thus increased possibility for air circulation). We love @thelanguageofyolande’s choice of robust denim but also consider a flowy floral, OTT tiered or easy wrap skirt for carefree and stylish cross-legged sitting at the park.
Fun fact: You don’t actually need to buy a set to try the short suit look. If you’ve got the blazer, just get similar Bermuda shorts — the result will reveal a whole lot of personality. If you do go matchy matchy, don't forget to mix it up every now and then.
Here we have the perfect outfit for those days you leave the house in the morning without real plans and definitely no curfew (a.k.a. the best days): a dress paired with a linen blazer. It means light protection from the sun at mid-day, an easy carry in the afternoon and a welcomed cover-up on mild nights.
