Casual Summer Style


Summer in the UK typically consists of four seasons in one day which means that versatility is key to looking good, as well as being prepared for the unpredictable weather.

Summer style brings up images of boho festivals vibes and florals but, with a wardrobe that consists of so much black it wouldn’t look so out of place in the Addams family mansion, this isn’t the case for me.

Despite saying that, the soaring temperatures have steered me slightly off course from my standard goth uniform and to embracing grey (which is almost a colour right?).

Another change in my wardrobe is that (for the first time in as far back as I can remember) I have been confident enough to get my legs out, partly because of my new tattoo (the full story is for another day).

Whatever the season my style revolves around comfort and no matter how hard I try to scrub up, a little grunge always seems to creep into my look.

Casual comfort is especially important in the summer as there is nothing worse than feeling constricted by clothing.

This look is a simple pairing, but was perfect for a cycle along the East London Canals.

My favourite shop for basics is Weekday, which is unfortunately not a store that we have in the UK.  So when I was Berlin I had to stock up on a few items, including these grey stretch denim short and black vest top, which I bought oversized and paired with a sports bra from BooHoo.

Being ready for the weather to transform back into winter with only a moments notice I also threw on my super soft Calvin Klein jumper*. This is another piece I got oversized as there is nothing more that I love than a proper snuggly sweatshirt and I think the large size throws back to that 90’s grunge look perfectly. If you are looking for something a little more colourful Tessuti (one of the brands I met at Bloggers Ball) have a range of colours in this jumper as well as a host of other designer brands.

Hot pants, vest top, sports bra, trainers, sweatshirt and shades are my staple summer items, what are yours?

*I got to choose the Calvin Klein sweatshirt as a complimentary item form the Tessuti website but, as always, all opinions and words are my own

      Thanks lovely! I absolutely love your outfit posts

  2. digging the tattoo! also the necklace really spices up the “casual look” – not sure if the sweater suits me, but it’s very 90s, makes me think of my older siblings then!
