My year round uniform: The Summer Edit

Striped top, black jeans and a red bag is pretty much my go to year round. It’s my no brainer outfit that makes my life easier when my mind is elsewhere. So when it comes to summer it seems only right to have an updated summer version, and that means switching the stripe jumper to a lightweight tee, the boots to espadrilles, and the jeans to a fabulous maxi skirt. This one is rather fab as its high-waisted and gives that feels really comfy, and also it has pockets.. need i say more?!

Maxi skirts are where its at for me this year, and this one from JD Williams is perfection. tThe thing with maxi skirts is they’re easy-peasy dressing when you don’t have time to fake tan or preen to short skirt standards. They’re also fab for those work days or early mornings when you know it may turn in to a nice day but there’s still a nip in the air first thing, but floaty and breezy still when it does warm up. Ok, i’ve banged on about maxi’s for long enough, you get my drift, finding a good maxi skirt option is honestly the answer to many a clothing dilemma for me.

I’ve teamed it with my classic pop of red with this gorgeous bag that i’ve barely stopped wearing since it arrived. It has card slots and two inner purse sections so need to take a big bulky purse out. It fits perfectly across the body too which i adore.

Finishing of course with some comfy black espadrilles, which each summer i wouldn’t be without, i will happily dap about in these all day.


Do you have an all year round uniform that you adapt per season?

    That’s a great look, Rachel. I wouldn’t say I have a uniform as such although I have an army of brightly coloured skater dresses that are easy to wear in either the summer or winter x

    Cute look, love a maxi skirt. I like the striped top with it, that’s a good idea!!

    Rachel, I love this classic look! So striking and cool. And those wedges are fabulous. My summer outfit formula is denim shorts, tee shirt and a kimono! Easy, comfortable, and stylish with a tiny bit of drama!
