Summer closet refresh

Summer can hit us like a truck when we’re left unprepared for the weather with too tight jeans and a lack of breezy tops. But don’t worry, those days of having nothing to wear on beautiful warm days will soon come to an end – we have the low down on getting your closet summer ready. 


Closet organisation is the answer. Move all your favourite summer pieces to the front where you can see them along with transitional pieces, such as denim waistcoats, cardigans and ankle boots.

Summer style update

Think out of the box to create unique outfits for the summer. Below we have some trends you absolutely must try this summer.

White monotone

Dressing in all white is classy but most of us are a bit scared to rock this look. Remember, white reflects the sun, which keeps you cool. This should be enough reason to make you want to try it! Opt for loose-fitting white blouses and crisp shorts.

  • (top left) Take a cue from fashion influencer Yoliswa and match your earrings to your top for a retro look that even mom would approve of. We love how her earrings match her kimono so effortlessly. She kept the rest of her look simple as to not distract from the kimono’s bold print.
  • (top middle) YouTuber Karen’s colour-block look is ladylike and easy to achieve.
  • (top right) Follow lifestyle blogger Patricia’s lead and style your look with ultra-feminine shoes and earrings.
