Staycation: 10 sunny buys for your ultimate summer capsule wardrobe

Trine Jensen-Burke

Staycation in style.

It’ll be a summer spent close to home for all of us, but honestly, that doesn’t mean we can’t make the most out of our summer wardrobes.

The weather here on our shores can be a little unpredictable, but we are keeping our fingers crossed for mostly sunny skies and dry, gorgeous days spend mostly outside.

Day trips to the sea-side, strolls in the park, rediscovering our own cities and towns – and tons and tons of back garden barbeques and al fresco fun, here are 10 wardrobe updates that’ll see you through the entire Irish summer – and beyond.

Happy shopping!

1. Corsica swimsuit

If you are going to buy one swimsuit this summer, make it this gorgeous navy and white classic one from Boden.


2. Cotton crepe dress

Pretty enough for an evening garden party, comfy enough for a day at the park.


3. Bow-details jumpsuit

So pretty and easy to wear, we are all about jumpsuits this summer.


4. Belted denim mini skirt

Wear with the sandals below, or your white sneakers – this skirt will see you through the entire summer.


5. Top with cutwork embroidery

With the shorts below, with the skirt above, or even with your while jeans you no doubt have already, this pretty top practically screams summer we think.


6. Belted shorts

Belted shorts are super-chic, and these ones in navy top our summer wardrobe wish lists.


7. Straw shopper

Straw bags are a summer staple, and we love how this one will hold all your beach- or picnic essentials.


8. Nomadic State of Mind Sandals

These rope sandals are seriously swoon-worthy, we think, and look far more expensive than they really are.


9. Pure Cashmere Striped V-Neck Relaxed Jumper

For those evenings that get a little bit chilly. A classic cashmere jumper that’ll live in your wardrobe for years to come.


10. Short linen dress with lace

White dresses are a summer staple, and this one strikes the perfect balance of dressy and laid-back. Wear with the sandals above or some brown leather slides – and your best summer tan!
