Styling guide : How to Dress Your Essentials For The Summer (ft. female styling)

Having to streamline your wardrobe to the essentials and more versatile pieces is a great way to reduce your wardrobe size and make the most out of your clothes. With that, here are some inspirations on how to style your essentials and staples for the summer. In this styling series, we are glad to have Rachel, one-half of the @scrachmarcs dance duo!

1. Button-Up Shirt

One of the best things about button-ups is that they are one of the most versatile clothing pieces you can have. Get one or two sizes up for that loose, slouchy style by wearing it oversized.

Our Modular Placket Shirt is great for pairing with a convertible collar shirt to show a contrast of collar detailing. Play around with the placket to get a different look or remove it to act as outerwear. On warmer days, layer it over a camisole unbuttoned and pair it with your favourite shorts to create a casual and care-free finish.

On a side note, a peep of our upcoming bucket hat that you can switch up to a mini bag!

2. Jacket/Blazer

Jackets and blazers are a must-have for your wardrobe, repeat an outfit and give it a completely new look simply by topping it off with a jacket. Our Magnetic Closure Jacket is great for summer layering: short sleeve, boxy and fuss-free closure (magnetic), it’s just so convenient for everyday wear. Pair it with a voluminous midi or maxi skirt for a more feminine look!

3. Sleeveless Top

Another staple piece that you can’t do without is a sleeveless top. Our Sleeveless Tee is a great versatile item that you can own. It is designed with a wide armhole that makes it suitable to layer on with a casual tee or a convertible collar shirt. Accessorise it with a bucket hat or a mini bag with your favourite pair of sneakers. With that, you are ready to roam from day to night. 

On casual days, just wear them as it is. Pair them with lightweight pants or skirt for an effortless and comfortable look.


4. Loose Fitting Linen Top

With Singapore’s tropical climate,  breathability is a key consideration when making smart outfit choices. Lightweight and breathable fabrics such as linens are your top choices as they can help to wick sweat and keep you cool. 

Our Shoto Baseball Collar Top is made from 100% Linen and is pre-washed for extra softness. It’s comfortable and breezy to wear, with a boxy cut. It is an ideal choice for wearing as a top or layering it over your inner piece. Here we styled Rachel with a turtle neck long sleeve underneath it for a dressier look.


We hope that with this styling series, you can gain some ideas and inspirations for your outfits! If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment down below or visit our studio for a complimentary styling session with us! More information here
