My absolute summer essentials would have to include an investment white T-shirt, one that I adore and can wear year after year. A white oversize linen shirt is also on my list, and of course, a well-fitting pair of white trousers, which can be taken into autumn and winter as well. When it comes to dressing for summer, I always go for laidback pieces in ice cream tones, so anything fitting that bill will win me over.
Gap is always great for creating those simple, minimal looks. You’re guaranteed to find what you’re looking for there when it comes to basics. As you can probably predict, my favourite pieces from the summer collection would have to include its white linen shirt (I’m wearing a size large) and cream crop trouser. I mostly love how its pieces always work around a neutral colour palette, as I find this is the key to shopping mindfully as well. If you’re like me and have a mostly monochrome wardrobe, you’ll know it’s a lot easier to mix and match items without them quickly going out of style. That means I’ll wear them for years to come. I do sometimes add in a pop of a colour (promise!), but I’ll keep it really classic so I know it will go with everything. Here are three of my favourite looks from Gap’s summer collection.
