Just as we were getting ready to assess and upgrade our basic summer wardrobe with new trendy summer outfits, we are staring down at another lockdown. The past year has made us realise that we all have an alter ego ergo our lockdown versions.
Every wardrobe has seen metamorphosis due to WFH and general restrictions but there is no reason that summer staples can’t be functional as well as chic. Well, trends may come and go but there are few pieces that have earned the wardrobe-essential status. So, we’ve rounded up 7 wardrobe staples to sail you through this summer with ease. Let’s take a look!
Summer Wardrobe Staples-
1. The Wide-Legged Trousers
Comfortable, chic and airy - give an instant cool factor with a pair of wide-legged pants this summer. With 'Morine', we have added a twist on the classic flared pants with the front pleats, thus, making them more roomy.
Style it with a basic top for a casual look and blazer for a formal look. Think it’s time we ditch those jeans!
2. The Button-Down Shirt Dress
Shirt married dress and they lived happily ever after! Well, finding a crisp white shirt dress is no less than a fairytale for any fashion-girl!
With ‘Madison’, we’ve added a playful touch with its asymmetric pleated hem and the buttons and wide cuff sleeves make it ideal to switch from desk-to drinks.The perfect summer staple that marries comfort with a formal look for those never ending zoom meetings!
3. Loungewear Set
Who said work-from-home has to be dull and boring? The athleisure trend started much before the pandemic and trickled down to everyone for obvious reasons!
There is athleisure and then there is athleisure with a fun twist. Take your style up a notch higher with this off-beat vibrant blue and relaxed fit, making it a summer wardrobe staple. Wear it as a set or team up separately - we’re yet to find an easier way to look more polished!

6. Retro Florals & Polkas
“Florals for spring? Groundbreaking!” No matter what Meryl Streep had to say in Devil Wears Prada, do you think any summer wardrobe would be complete without a floral outfit? We think not!
This gorgeous navy blue skater dress with a back-tie is perfect for driving away those summer blues. Extremely comfortable and wearable, it transitions beautifully from brunches that turn into lunches and beyond. A go-to dress for when you think that you have “nothing to wear”!
This retro print in varied sizes invaded our wardrobes two years back and since then has become a must-have for every it-girl.
We’ve incorporated this fun print in our navy blue dress accented with balloon sleeves thus, adding just the perfect amount of charm and oomph. It needs little to no-styling and transitions from office to casual wear effortlessly.
Stripes add structure to any garment and have the unique power to please any alter ego, we believe.

8. Party Dress & Maxis
Work from home can be tiring, curfews can take a toll on our mental health. This beautifully cut and designed asymmetrical dress is sure to uplift your mood and set a good tone for any party, casual or formal.
The beautiful play of florals on this pretty powder blue colour makes this a head turner. The exciting sleeves are just an added bonus. An absolute winner for your Zoom dates!

The bodice is bold and beautiful with a fit and cut to envy. Much like people will envy you when they see you rocking this look!
As we head into uncertain times, we can certainly make sure that our alter egos are dressed in comfortable, chic clothes - clothes that are trendy but fun reflections of us. In the past year we have grown, gotten better at juggling responsibilities and bringing balance to our lives.
These summer staples promise to do the same, create a fun balance of casual and formal, aesthetically classic and playful summer outfits for women. The coming times are going to be challenging, but nothing that can’t be dealt with the perfect dress/outfit and a never say die attitude. It is time to explore who we are, what we are made of, our alter egos!
