This summer, I've really been keeping my fashion looks on the casual side - from sweat shorts to tennis skirts, my closet is starting to fill up with more comfy clothes than I've ever seen. Considering we haven't been able to do as many things as we'd like during this summer, wearing comfy casual clothes has become the new "black". Today, I'm showing you all my top 5 brands that I've been wearing this summer.
1. Mayfair Group
Although the Mayfair Group isn't considered a clothing brand, their merch collections are absolutely to die for! This set, the "Just Be" tank top and sweat shorts, from the "At Home Edit" is one of my favorite sets because it's super easy to dress up or down depending on how you accessorize it. Lately, sweat shorts have been dominating the fashion world because they're the ultimate comfort shorts and they don't cost an arm and a leg to get your hands on.
Personally, I love these sweat shorts from Mayfair because they have a drawstring on the inside so that I can fit into them no matter how much pasta I've eaten that day! They're also the perfect length and made with the softest, coziest material.
If you're following quite a few fashion bloggers, then you know just how trendy the classic white tennis skirt is right now. Pictured below, is the "White '87 Tennis Skirt" from the "Mayfair Athletics" collection. Before working with Mayfair on this drop, I had been eyeing tons of tennis skirts, trying to find the perfect match. Luckily for me, I was able to snag the tennis skirt of my dreams and I've been wearing it ever since!
Check out their latest merch drop, "Mayfair Athletics", that I had the pleasure of being apart of!
2. Who What Wear Collection
Who What Wear has been dropping the perfect summer outfits lately. Their collections have been filled with the most vibrant colors and tons of swoon worthy dresses. And as for patterns, theirs are anything but boring - they have leaves, polka dots, animal print, and so much more. If you're looking for statement pieces to add to your summer wardrobe, Who What Wear has you covered, and for the right price!
Pictured above is the "Balloon Sleeve Dress" from one of their recent drops. I absolutely love this dress because it's perfect for lounging around the house when you just want to feel good about yourself. You can also dress this outfit up or down by pairing it with kitten heels, jewelry and a cute mini bag, or simply pairing it with sandals. Not to sound cliché, but I personally picture myself café hopping in Paris in my cutest kitten heels when I'm wearing this dress.
3. Ooh La Luxe
Lately, I've been a huge fan of dresses because they're super easy to throw on and I feel like I'm prepared for any gathering. Although the dresses I choose to wear on a regular basis aren't always as fancy as the "Lyla Dress" from Ooh La Luxe, they're still cute enough for any surprise occasions.
Pictured below is the "Life of the Party" set - this set is probably my favorite set that I own because it gives me major 2000's vibes, which I live for! The great thing about this set is that it's extremely stretchy and soft so you won't ever feel uncomfortable in it. As I mentioned before, comfort has been my top priority when it comes to fashion these days. Luckily, this set is not only pleasing to the eye, but it will also keep you comfortable for all-day wear. And of course (not pictured below), I paired this feathered set with my rose gold feathered heels from Charlotte Russe.
Zara is definitely one of my favorite brands to shop for all times of the year. If we were to put clothing in financial classes, then I would say that Zara is the middle class because it's not the cheapest but it surely isn't the price of Gucci. I love Zara because you get so much quality for a reasonable price. They stay on top of the latest trends in a timely fashion, but they take the time to add quality to every piece. One of the best things about Zara is when they have their sales going on - you never want to miss out on a Zara sale!
Pictured above are my tweed shorts from Zara, which are currently sold out (sorry!). These shorts are the perfect shorts for when you want to look put together but keep it casual and comfortable. One thing that I love about these shorts is that they're such a great length - they aren't bermuda shorts but they have enough wiggle room so that your butt won't pop out when you bend over!
Pro tip: adding a tweed accent piece to your casual outfit will elevate your look 10 times more!
5. Bershka Collection
As I mentioned in one of my recent blog posts, Bershka is a new favorite brand of mine. When it comes to elevated, quality basics for a reasonable price, Bershka wins every time. Much like Zara, you don't want to overlook Bershka's sale section because they often have everything you'd want and more! While browsing Bershka's online shop, I never fail to be surprised at the unique new pieces they offer. From Mickey Mouse platform sneakers to transparent cargo pants, Bershka seems to hit every corner of the fashion world, offering a diverse collection for everyone to enjoy.
Pictured above is a utility style jacket that can easily be worn as a top (most likely in the fall or a cold summer night). Sadly, I bought this jacket on sale quite a few months ago so I don't think that it's available anymore. However, they have plenty of other utility style pieces that will make you drool!
Until next time,
