HOW TO WEAR YOUR SUMMER PIECES ALL YEAR ROUND #SHOPCONSCIOUS

September 1, 2019

 

 

EVERLANE SLIM PANTS     |       THEORY SHIRT (OLD)       |         & OTHER STORIES TEE (OLD)      |     REEBOK TRAINERS

 

 

A big focus of mine this year has been making sure the pieces in my wardrobe work for all year around and for all types of occasions. Not only does it mean spending less money and spending it more wisely, it is also more sustainable. It can take a while tand few too any bad purchases to figure it out so I wanted to share some of the pieces I think will last you all year round and how to style them. 

 

 

 

 

These Everlane trousers have an unexpected missing puzzle piece in my wardrobe. They are the perfect inbetween bottoms that aren't jeans or suiting, so they've added variety to my wardrobe without being a crazy trendy piece. All the colours they come in are great and would fit into any wardrobe. It just came down to assessing what I was missing. I don't really own too many light coloured bottoms as they are typically unpractical, but they aren't a stark white. The pale sandstone colour works well for the lighter colour palette outfits and simultaneously is still really easy to wear, you don't need to be worrying about a speck of dirt (the pants also have stretch so they are super comfy!). 

 

They can easily be dressed up, but here I've gone with a super casual look, paired with super basic pieces that everyone should own in their collection - a white tee and button-down and white trainers. It's such a easy look and it just goes to show how basic pieces can be versatile and chic. By shifting my focus and changing the way I think about the pieces in your wardrobe, from always have the latest trend or constant new pieces, it has made dressing so much more fuss free and has allowed me to get more creative. You would typically catagorise these pants as a summer piece, but actually, by simply layering a tee under a buttondown, I have myself a chic transitional look.

I've made it no secret that my black Everlane blazer has been my go-to this year. It has featured in many blog posts and in countless Instagram posts because it is so damn easy to style. It's the perfect boyfriend fit and great quality, not only fabric wise (100% wool) but in it's construction and detail too. I would have assumed it was only a transitional piece, but I have been wearing it all year round. It has been surprisingly versatile in both the winter and summer seasons, for layering or just to throw on over tees, dresses or camis. I am definitely considering getting it in the grey herringbone

 

 

 

 

 

A couple more recent basics I have added to the wardrobe has been the classic Henley and the cropped workwear trousers. I can't quite believe how I have gone this long without a Henley. I love how casual and laidback of a piece it is and I can't wait to pair it with linen shorts in the summer. But to get maximum wear, I've been utilising it to dress down more formal pieces, like the blazer and workwear pant, as well as add a subtle pop of navy in the sea of black in this outfit. I probably don't have to tell you how essential a black pant is, but I have to rave about how comfortable and easy these Everlane ones are. Not ridiculously long, but actually properly cropped with a slight flare, making them flattering and simple to style. I can see myself getting a lot of wear out of these pieces, especially with spring well and truly on its way now!
