Top 5 Summer Wardrobe Essentials For 2022

Summer is fast approaching…This means that the sunshine, good vibes, and a whole range of exciting new fashion trends are just around the corner! If you haven’t done so already, now’s the time to start getting your wardrobe ready for the sunny weather. We’ve picked the top 5 summer wardrobe essentials for 2022 to help you get started:

White Blazer

A really exciting summer trend that we’re expecting to see this year is tailoring. Tailored looks in light colours will make a prominent appearance, with white blazers being the star of the show. Throwing on a white blazer is an easy way to add a fresh and clean finish to an outfit, and can be worn with tailored trousers for a formal look, or with jeans for a more casual look. One of the biggest challenges with dressing during the summer months is overheating. Blazers don’t need to be heavy and stuffy to remain sophisticated. Opting for a blazer in a lightweight material such as white linen is the perfect way to balance sophisticated style with comfort. 


Nothing says summer quite like a halterneck top and so we’re delighted to see them making a re-appearance for 2022. It’s not just halterneck tops that we’ll be seeing a lot of… halterneck jumpsuits and dresses will also be prominent. Styling a colourful halterneck top with a pair of denim flared jeans and platforms creates a gorgeous retro look that’s perfectly suited to the sunny vibes. Complete the look with our Luna handbag in a colourful shade of your choice. The fun shape of this handmade leather bag is the perfect complement to a bright and summery outfit.

Cut-Out Dress

Another one of the most gorgeous summer wardrobe essentials to include in your 2022 collection has to be a cut-out dress. The warmer weather presents the perfect opportunity to wear cut-outs, and there is plenty of choice to suit your individual style. Cut-out dresses come in all shapes and sizes, from short bodycons to longer maxi and midi dresses. They’re also available in a range of colours and patterns. Wearing a cut-out dress in a bold pattern or colour, paired with some simple heels is an easy way to make a sophisticated statement for evening occasions. 

Oversized Totes

Our list of the top 5 summer wardrobe essentials wouldn’t be complete without mentioning one of the most popular handbag trends that’s continuing from spring into the summer season. Large tote bags are a summer must-have. Not only are they incredibly practical (equally well suited for use as a beach bag as a work bag), they are effortlessly stylish. Zatchels handmade leather tote bags feature a spacious inner compartment with two comfortable carry handles, and are available in a range of colours to complement your other summer wardrobe essentials.

Lowrise Jeans

It’s crucial to have a good pair of jeans in your wardrobe whatever the season, and this year lowrise jeans need to be amongst your summer wardrobe essentials. That’s right! This noughties fashion trend really is making a comeback. Lowrise jeans are perfect for creating a casual outfit that’s comfortable to wear in the hot weather without compromising on style. Lowrise jeans look great when paired with a casual tee or vest top. Alternatively, why not combine two summer wardrobe essentials by pairing your lowrise jeans with a halterneck?
