Make Your Closet Work Harder This Season

Make Your Closet Work Harder This Season

Summer is finally here and with it comes a host of wardrobe dilemmas. When the weather heats up, knowing what to wear can suddenly become that bit more difficult. How can you stay cool and chic whether you’re in the office, on the beach, in the park or running errands? 

Here at Emma Wallace we believe your outfit planning should be as carefree as the season itself. That’s why you need to build the ultimate capsule wardrobe for the summer. Capsule items should be versatile and classic without being boring. They should make getting dressed a breeze. The key here is to choose a handful of pieces that deliver endless outfit opportunities to ensure you can make your closet work harder for every occasion. 

Read on as we reveal the essentials we’d add to cart to deliver that capsule collection you need. 

Summer Wardrobe Aster Dress Emma Wallace UK

For many of us, summer begins with a flirty and light dress and, opting for a sundress that can carry you from beach to bar and everywhere in between will be one of the best investments you can make this season. Our relaxed silk maxi Aster Dress delivers just that. With no fastenings and spaghetti straps you simple slip it on to instantly look put together. The clashing prints create a style statement but what we truly love about the Aster is its versatility. Throw over a bikini with a pair of flip flops and a raffia beach bag and you’re ready to wow by the waves or switch to a pair of metallic chunky block heels, pile on the gold jewellery and add a little clutch to take you to the bar with elegant ease. It even looks great worn with sneakers and a cross body for running around the city. One dress, endless ways to wear that always look on point. 


Summer Wardrobe Amy Shorts Emma Wallace UK

Now shorts are a summer staple but when it comes to finding a classic pair that will work for your capsule wardrobe, it’s key that you consider the cut. A more formal, tailored style will instantly elevate your outfit and keep it from looking too casual. Our Amy Shorts are a great example. The high waisted style with pleat front and matching tie belt feels premium and suitable for so many situations. Wear with a pair of loafers, a tucked in button up white shirt and a tote to take you to the office when temperatures soar or wear it with a casual white tee and sneakers to head to brunch with your friends. The Talitha print adds extra impact for when you really want to wow. 


Summer Wardrobe Diasey Tee Emma Wallace UK

Now you simply can’t beat a basic white tee for the summer. It pairs so well with everything from linen trousers to a maxi skirt. But sometimes you need to bring some bling to those basics. Our relaxed Daisy Tee takes this classic to a new level with beautiful hand beaded tiny flower inspired embellishment. Adding a touch of sparkle to this hard-working icon. Wear with your favourite jeans, trainers and oversized shades for the weekend or rock it with some tailored Bermuda shorts and sandals for the office. 


Summer Wardrobe Suzanne Jumpsuit Emma Wallace UK

Jumpsuits are a great option for a capsule wardrobe – worn solo they work effortlessly for the summer season, but they can also be layered so you can continue wearing them well into winter. For your capsule we love a plain colour all in one that you can slip on without a thought and know you’ll instantly look epic. Our Suzanne Jumpsuit would be our pick. Featuring cute cut outs that will let you show off some skin in the sun, a warm weather friendly wide leg silhouette and a soft jersey fabric to keep you comfortable. This jumpsuit could take you from beach bar (wear with our Talitha bucket hat, raffia sandals and an oversized beach bag) all the way through to a summer wedding (just add skyscraper stilettos and a clutch). Get you a look that can do both! 


Summer Wardrobe Sakura Skirt Emma Wallace UK

Finally, summer wouldn’t be complete without a flirty skirt and your capsule wardrobe needs a wrap style that lets you feel free. Our Sakura wrap skirt delivers on all levels. Made in luxe silk satin with fluted edges and asymmetric hem, it looks casual and cool paired with a white tee, cap and chunky trainers or dial up the drama with a sexy bralette and sky high black heels. Want to wear it to the office, then opt for the Lana Lace Top and a pair of leather sandal flatforms and an oversized tote to complete the look. 

Good outfits start with good foundations. Start your capsule collection and get ready to look chic all summer long!
