Timeless Summer Fashion Inspiration
This blog is a collection of timeless summer fashion inspiration curated by your personal stylist Jenni at I on Image. Profit from my fashion advice & get wearable (yet attainable) style ideas. Steal my style and look your best all summer long!
In this post I am sharing my favorite summer looks from my fashion archives. Shop your closet for similar styles or shop for a few new pieces to complete your lasting summer look. I always aim for an effortlessly chic style that you can easily copy in your own routine. Looking amazing doesn’t have to be complicated nor expensive. With the right personal stylist it’s all within your reach.
Go for looks that stand the test of time and make your wardrobe more sustainable in the process. I hope you will have an amazing summer and that you will enjoy your it in timeless style!
1. Statement Color
Adding a bold statement color is an instant style fix utilized by the most stylish people in the world. Your outfit doesn’t need much else after that. Allow amazing vivid colors of summer take the stage and keep the rest of the look simple.
PRO TIP: Keep your makeup and hair as natural as possible to balance the look.
RED – Colour of love and passion
TURQUOISE – Color of sea and freshness
PURPLE – Color of mystery and creativity
2. Happy Monochrome
Basic bermuda shorts get a lovely feminine twist when you combine them with a crocheted top. Stripy platform espadrille is a relaxed choice of footwear. You gotta love a forever chic black & white combo!
The perfect recipe for summer style: Take a retro gingham skirt adorned with frills. Add sporty stripes, some sexy lace and luxurious embellishments. Summer style needs to be fun!
3. Head-To-Toe Neutrals
A basic ribbed body-con dress works well in many different ways. Here I styled it with 90’s cool bucket hat and a braided mule. But you could easily tie an over-sized blouse over it or wear it with a long printed kimono.
This knitted oversize dress is the perfect example of effortless summer chic. You can just slip it on, add statement jewelry and basic nude flip-flops. It’s one of those pieces that take you from office to beach in guaranteed comfy elegance.
4. Fabulous Florals
Classic feminine florals are always a winner and they truly stand the test of time. For me style is a lot about falling in love with something beautiful over and over again. I just style my outfits to fit the occasion, the season and the latest trends.
Wear your floral dress at home, WFH or to the office. I styled mine with a simple black block heel sandal and minimal jewelry. A nice print doesn’t need much more and that’s the beauty of this type of floral dress.
5. Classic Navy
A navy midi-dress is a great choice for work in the summer. Mine is made from low-maintenance travel quality. Sleeves give me some coverage and pockets are just so cool.
The frilled hem adds some fun to otherwise plain look.
Who said navy is boring? Not me! Combine it with cheerful summer blooms and playful ruffles and you’re good to go!
