How to put together a summer outfit

Every season needs a different fashion style.

Summer will definitely bring you to a whole different clothing style than any other season. 

The colors tend to be brighter and lighter in this type of season. Light cotton, fabrics lean toward silk, denim, linen, chiffon, jersey, and chambray are the common materials. Plus, summer styles are popularly known as more casual and free-spirited. 

But just because it’s summer doesn’t mean you’ll spend every day lounging under the sun. 

Nowadays, women are also busy during summer just like those rest of the days of the year. That’s why it’s important that your wardrobe has enough items purposely to have pretty and stylish outfits for summer. 

Starting from your very simple white t-shirt up to your very classic maxi dress, these are the pieces that every summer closet always requires to be filled with. So, if you want to level up your fashion style for summer, make sure that you have those dresses or items that are needed inside your wardrobe.

Before proceeding to find out the best outfit during summer, here are the three tips first how you are going to put together a summer outfit according to your preferred styles.

Don’t ever forget to select the main focus piece of your summer outfit

This is the primary and important step of putting your summer outfit together. This should be the highlight of your whole outfit and you want people to be focusing on this piece. It is always much likely better if you start with an item of clothing. This will definitely make the whole process simpler and easier in mixing and matching shoes and accessories. 

You can add or have a layer matching clothing

As this is a summer outfit, you would need to do a bit of layering such as a cover up or a shawl. Again, the key here is to pick this out after you choose your main item so you’ll be able to match it against colors and patterns.

In this case, if your main item or focus is a bottom like a pair of shorts or skirt, then adding a shirt or top will complete the outfit.  Just always look for a color that matches with the skirt you prefer to wear as your main focus and don’t ever forget that in picking the shirt or blouse, this shouldn’t overpower your main focus. Your goal is for the shirt or blouse and the skirt to look good together.

 shoes that will complement to your outfit will muck likely be an easy job to be done.
