Spring and summer basics every woman should own

You will agree with me that most spring basics can be used in summer because most times it's all about layering and wearing lighter jackets to protect our bodies from the cold, but basically we start wearing lighter dresses. Spring and summer are like siblings—fun and beautiful—with the exception that one is more warm than the other. So in today's post, we are going to talk about spring and summer basics every woman should own.
I like keeping my outfits simple and basic sometimes. Even though I like long dresses, I will gladly wear jeans and tees during the summer. We are not all the same, which is why being versatile is important, and spring wardrobe sorting can be really important for those who have lots of items. Spring and summer basics are primarily clothing items you can easily wear with style and a good fashion sense. It's also about light and airy clothing, so let's get to it.

From oversized shirts to crop tops and frill-detailed camis, you are free to express yourself and wear anything you like. I personally encourage people to always keep it decent. I personally think that colourful tees are best for spring and summer because you can wear them without having to cover them. Wondering what options of tees suit spring and summer? Here are some affordable tees for summer. I got this cerise cotton short sleeve jersey T-shirt at H&M. If you prefer neutral colours, there are also tees for you.

Jeans are perfect for every weather, but some jeans are thicker than others, so while picking out your jeans, be sure to pick out jeans that are made with light materials, not coated jeans. Jeans that are versatile and only one colour, such as blue, black, grey, or ash and navy blue jeans, These jeans go with lots of tops, blouses, shirts, and tees. There are different types of jeans that I recommend for summer, such as mom jeans, boyfriend jeans, oversize jeans, boot cut jeans, baggy jeans, tapered jeans, and straight leg jeans. I do not recommend skinny jeans in the summer because, after covering your skin all winter, summer is the only season that really allows your skin to breathe. When it gets really hot, some people start sweating on their thighs, which is really uncomfortable and sometimes makes your thigh a little darker, so I recommend you ditch skinny jeans in the summer. I got these grey baggy high-rise jeans from Zara. 

Slippers, flip-flops, sandals, and Birkenstock
Taking fashion as easy as you can in spring and summer can do you good, especially if you enjoy wearing fashionable items. Less is more sometimes, and in summer, buy basics that you can easily pair with sandals, flip-flops, and slippers. They give a more relaxed look, which is always best for summer.

Black Sunglasses
I like wearing sunglasses, and I have recommended several pairs that we all need, but this post is all about the basics, so you need a black pair of sunglasses. A black pair of sunglasses does the magic. All you need to do is put them in your handbags, and when the sun is high, just put them on. Also, on days you aren't feeling too good with the world, a pair of sunglasses does the magic. I purchased my tinted rectangular sunglasses from Primark for less than £2, and like they say, no one will know because everything I touch turns golden and luxurious. Sunglasses are also great protection from ultraviolet raysThese classic and stylish rectangular sunglasses are a must-have for the summer.

Black Mini bags
Big bags are nice, but have you ever needed to stay out late and needed to put a few makeup items and touch-up items inside your bag, and you realized that you didn't have the right mini purse to match your outfit or you didn't have a mini bag at all? Well, a mini bag is an essential summer item you need. Keep all your items organized and safe in a mini bag.

Jewellery is nice, but you need light ones in the summer. Have you worn a watch that made your wrist sweat? It's part of the game, but that can be so uncomfortable, so I recommend stud earrings, fewer watches in the summer, and necklaces if need be. Rings are also optional.

Light face powder
The reason this is the last point is because not everyone likes to use makeup, so if you like makeup, I would recommend going lighter in the spring and summer. Allow your skin to breathe. Let the spring air heal your skin and do a lot of healthy eating because it's less about the products you use on your skin and more about what you eat. So, using light powder and ditching the foundation in the summer isn't a bad idea. If you have a special occasion to attend, then it's fine to apply foundation. Sweat and foundation mixed together aren't good for your skin. There are foundation formulas that beauty brands are marketing and saying they prevent toxins from getting to your skin. This can be true to a certain extent, but believe me, just staying away from foundation in the summer would help your skin a lot more. I use Mac powder because it has good coverage and you don't have to apply much to see the effect.
