Summer Style Changes: How to get the most out of your look

Summer is finally nearing and for many in the Southern states, the warmer weather is already here. That means it’s time to put away your spring pastels and switch over to your summer wardrobe. For many of us, switching to a new season can be difficult to navigate in the fashion department as we readjust to the warm temperatures. Not to mention, many of us don’t have the budget to buy a whole new wardrobe full of the latest fashion trends.

However, panic not as there are many small changes you can make to adapt your spring wardrobe into a summer sensation. So, whether you’re planning a dream vacation to warmer shores, or are staying home this summer, it’s time to begin prepping your wardrobe for the ultimate summer.

Below, we’ll walk you through the summer style changes you’ll need to make to get the most out of your look, and all without breaking the bank.

Switch up your denim

There’s no need to pack away your denim jeans, even if you’re in a warmer climate. You simply need to switch up what you pair them with. If stylish baggy jeans are your go to for everyday wear, then keep on wearing them as you please but simply switch the jumpers for a light blouse, a cropped t-shirt, or a button down shirt with the sleeves rolled up for a casual look.

Don’t forget shoes can make all the difference too. Simply switch your usual sneakers for some stylish sliders, or even some brightly colored crocs if that’s your style.

Plan your wardrobe against your summer activity calendar

There’s no point spending a lot on trendy shorts and polos or the latest maxi dresses if you plan on spending all summer as a sports coach at a summer camp. Just as there’s little point investing in the latest lulu lemon activewear if you’re not that into sports. Planning your summer wardrobe will depend on your events calendar and where in the world you are spending the summer.

While it’s tempting to jump on the latest trends you see online and in magazines, be sure that they fit with your lifestyle too.

Remove out of season clothing

It can be easy to get bogged down by your wardrobe when it’s full of everything you own. However your mornings will be a lot smoother and it will be much easier to see what exactly you own for summer if you declutter your closet and remove out of season clothing.

If your closet is large enough, simply have a corner or section for each season. However, if you’re a little tight on space then it may be a good idea to vacuum pack away your winter/autumn clothes and store them in another closet, under your bed, or in the attic.

Remember that not everything needs to be packed away though as you can mix and match from different seasons, without having to splurge on a whole summer collection. Perhaps keep out some of your cozy sweats for the cooler summer evenings, and a hoodie or two for the beach if it’s breezy.

Create a capsule wardrobe

Over time, even the tidiest of us can end up with a jam-packed closet of things we don’t really wear anymore. It’s important to declutter your closet each season and only keep what you consider a classic or staple piece. It’s far better to invest in more luxurious and well-made pieces that will last, rather than trying to stay on track with the latest trends that go out of style very quickly or don’t match with other things you have in your wardrobe.

Overall, taming your closet can be a challenge, especially when most of us lead busy lives today. However, by following the simple tips above, you’ll be several steps closer to creating your dream summer wardrobe that will last for years to come.
