Must-Have Pieces for Your Wardrobe
April is a month we remember as one of vibrance and the summer’s touch. This summer, set the tone with a breezy look that perfectly encapsulates the spirit of the season. The best way to encapsulate April and create a summer vibe is through fashion. The one thing you can’t buy is fashion or style, as it’s not attached to a label, a price tag or a shopping bag. It is something that the outside world sees reflected in our soul. It’s time for a closet refresh, so let’s take a closer look at some of the must-haves for your summer closet. So, here I am going to show you how you can use your existing pieces and make them versatile, mix and match them to create endless pieces and also how to combine them with accessories to make them look effortless and chic.
It’s summertime, and the one item we’ve all loved all year is a t-shirt. Everybody should have a basic t-shirt in their closet because it is essential in any wardrobe. It’s a dressy or casual piece that may be layered under other clothes or worn alone. And a White T-shirt is a very evident and fundamental item in our wardrobe. Today, however, there are a huge variety of Graphic Print T-shirts to pick from, including everything from pop culture references to abstract designs. In recent years, Oversized T-shirts have also established themselves as summer wardrobe staples due to their comfort and versatility, which make them ideal for keeping cool and looking chic during the sweltering summer months. There are a plethora of summer t-shirt prints to pick from, something to suit every style and preference whether you prefer bold and eye-catching designs or something a bit more subdued.

According to the concept of yin and yang, opposing forces often tend to complement each other in real life. Taking a cue from this ancient Chinese philosophy, we can opt for dresses in which we celebrate the beauty of contrasts when woven together in the same fabric, resulting in something so beautiful that it will find a home in your closet. So, since we’re talking about summer basics, how can we forget about summer dresses, whether it’s a cute little dress or a long cotton maxi dress?
First of all, we can talk about Wrap Dress, if you are choosing a printed wrap dress in that case prints can become very tricky so make sure you go for smaller print like any floral prints something that can fit your body because bigger prints make your outfits look very crowded.
A cotton Maxi Dress is perfect for a day in the sun or a summer evening. These dresses are usually flowing and long, making them perfect for being cool and comfortable in hot weather. Look for a dress with a flattering neckline, such as a V-neck or round neck, sweetheart neckline and opt for Indian prints such as khadi, kalamkari, indigo, gamcha, ajrakh for a chic and feminine look.
The next option is a Shirt Dress, which is a relaxed and comfortable choice for people who want a more casual look. For a summer style, look for a dress with a bright and cheerful print, such as polka dots or stripes.
Those who desire a little bit more coverage than a tiny dress but don’t want to wear a maxi dress also have a fantastic option. They should wear Midi Dresses. Between the knee and the ankle, this is a common dress length. They are appropriate for many different events, including weddings, business gatherings, and informal trips with friends. Depending on the situation, you can easily combine and contrast them. They are also excellent for a day-to-night changeover.

Since Denim is so popular all year long, I’m going to start with it first. It’s crucial to have good-fitting denim that actually flatters your body. But for comfort in the summer, you only need three types of basic jeans. First, choose a pair of Straight-Leg Jeans with a light wash for summer. Mom Jeans and Ripped Jeans are two further types. Since it is a summer-appropriate color, white denim has been very popular in recent years. In order to have a distinctive look, you can choose printed jeans, which are now being released by brands as well. On the other hand, I would suggest not opting for skinny jeans in summer as they are not comfortable and breathable enough for summer.
Next is the Wide-Leg Trousers, whose construction allows air to move and circulate, keeping you cool and comfortable all day long. They may be dressed up with a crop top and heels for an evening event or down with a simple t-shirt for a more laid-back daytime ensemble. When going to the office, you can also wear them with neutral tones. They are even more comfortable than jeans, in my opinion.
If you like to wear modest clothes, Skirts are essential in your summer closet. You can opt for a printed skirt in bright colors, and to add something more to the outfit, try midi skirts with slits that give you a beach look and go great with bralettes and crop tops, as well as shirts and t-shirts. So, this is a very versatile piece and make sure you are buying something not just with trends, because maybe something is trendy at the moment and on some days it is maybe off trend and then you are wondering “what should I do with my neon green skirt?”
Last but not least, Culottes and High-Waisted Shorts are a great option for those who prefer a little more coverage than traditional denim shorts. They are stylish, versatile and can be paired with a variety of tops.

I know, you get a shock when you hear about saree and summer. But it’s also a very conservative stereotype to think that sarees are never an option for summer fashion. But today the saree has become so popular thanks to fashion influencers and their different draping styles and so many new artisanal brands that it is now not only linked to India, but western countries also make the saree a versatile garment. The shades of summer sarees are indigos, sands and whites. The mix and match of delicate hand prints on sarees and the comfort of cotton will add a touch of fun and comfort to the summer season. Sarees are a must have in this breezy and blooming sunny season.

Your summer wardrobe must-haves may be elevated and given some flair with accessories. Consider including the following accessories in your summer wardrobe:
The summer is a fantastic time to explore with striking and vibrant jewellery. To give your look some flair, choose bold accessories like massive necklaces or big hoops of jewellery. Dainty jewellery can offer a more subtle and sophisticated style for casual and workplace wear, while loud and colourful jewellery can be a fun way to add some individuality to your summer wardrobe. Also, don’t be afraid to mix and match jewellery with various colours and textures.
Comfort, breathability, and versatility are essential qualities for summer footwear. For your summer wardrobe necessities, consider sandals, espadrilles, canvas trainers and slip-on shoes. Look for a pair with a comfortable, supportive footbed and straps that won’t rub or chafe your skin. Pick designs that are versatile and reflect your personal style.
A pair of sunglasses is a must-have accessory for any summertime look. They not only add a touch of glitz to any outfit, but they also shield your eyes from the sun’s damaging UV rays. To reduce glare as much as possible, look for sunglasses with polarised lenses, and select a design that suits the shape of your face.
Want to carry all your summer essentials like sunscreen, sunglasses, water bottles and a beach towel in your bag? Then Totes are a must-have summer accessory because they are spacious, versatile, eco-friendly, fashionable and easy to carry. Whether you’re going to the beach, picnicking or running errands, a cotton tote bag is the perfect accessory to complement your summer essentials. Even leather or leather-finished tote bags are versatile with office looks as well. Cross-body bags, backpacks, straw bags and fanny packs are great summer options that are hands-free, easy to carry and available in a variety of styles and colors.
