The much-awaited season is finally here which means it’s time to upgrade our wardrobes with new, lightweight pieces that can be worn throughout summer. But just because these are warm weather-friendly styles doesn’t mean you can’t wear them year-round! Not to mention, it’s better for the environment and your wallet to fill your closet with versatile garments instead of having to buy a new wardrobe every season. If you’re looking for a few new designs to upgrade your summer and beyond collection, we’ve got you covered!
Read on for some of our favorite summer outfits and items you can wear all year round.
A stylish cardigan
Nothing says versatile like a medium-weight cardigan. Cardigans can be worn year-round with many different outfits whether you’re at work, grabbing dinner with your partner, or going out at night. Our Go-To Cardigan is the perfect style to add to your collection because it’s timeless yet boasts a modern twist with its masterfully knitted accordion pleat design.
The Go-To Cardigan is long enough to wear with leggings but can also be paired with denim, dresses, shorts, skirts, trousers, and more! It’s made from a super soft cotton and Modal® blend that will keep you comfortable and cozy no matter the time of year. During the summer, you can wear the Go-To Cardigan with a flowy printed tunic, a stylish jersey top, or a button-up shirt for work to keep things comfy yet stylish. When the weather gets colder, the Go-To Cardigan is great to layer with warmer sweaters and coats. This fashionable and adaptable cardigan is offered in three colors to match any summer outfit you’re planning—Soft White, Medium Gray, and Black.
Whether you want to play it safe for work or go all out for a night on the town, adding an eye-catching necklace to your look will compliment your outfit without being a distraction. The Convertible Multi-Strand Horn Necklace can be adjusted to different lengths depending on your personal tastes and preferences. It also looks great with all of the Go-To Cardigan colors, no matter what top you’re layering with it!
Flowy tunic top
A tunic top is an absolute necessity in every woman’s wardrobe—whether it be during the warm summer or cold winter months. Tops like our Tiburon Tunic Icon can be worn so many different ways regardless of your personal tastes or lifestyle! The Tiburon Tunic Icon is our best-selling top and for good reason. It’s made from a high-quality, blended organic cotton poplin and Modal® jersey combination that is breathable and super comfortable! It offers an architectural A-line silhouette, stretchy knit ¾ sleeves and pleated back panel, and best of all, deep front pockets (and what woman doesn’t love her pockets?!). This top fits and flatters many body shapes and sizes because of its easy fit and flattering shape. Like the Go-To Cardigan, the Tiburon Tunic Icon can be worn with leggings, slim pants, denim, and more. To wear the Tiburon Tunic Icon during the summer, we love pairing it with breathable, cropped trousers and bangles. For the wintertime, try rocking it with a cardigan and our Lounge Dress Pants. The Tiburon Tunic Icon comes in 9 great colors ranging from neutrals to brights.
Because the Tiburon Tunic Icon boasts a flowy shape, a slouchy shoulder bag is the perfect pairing for this summer outfit. We’ve been loving the Merrin Convertible Backpack from Hobo Bags because you can wear it as both a backpack for work and then turn it into a slouchy shoulder bag for a night out! It comes in 10 different colorways to compliment any shade of the Tiburon Tunic Icon that you decide on. Plus, it’s made from durable leather so it will last you season over season.
Versatile ankle pants
The ultimate year-round closet staple is a flattering pair of pants like our Slimming Ankle Pants. While these pants are newer to our collection, they’ve quickly become a favorite amongst the Stella Carakasi team and our customers because they look great on many body types, and they feel like you’re wearing leggings! They’re made from a stretchy, sustainable Tencel® blend for ultimate comfort and durability. The design features slimming style lines that accentuate and flatter your body shape. They also feature a flat-fitting elastic waist to keep you comfortable during the workday and beyond. You can wear our Slimming Ankle Pants with almost any top including button-up shirts, tunics, cardigans, and jersey tops. For summer, try pairing the Slimming Ankle Pants with a flowy tunic and statement necklace. During the cooler months, pair these flattering pants with a cozy sweater to stay comfortable and chic. The Slimming Ankle Pants are available in Soft White and Black to match any tops and accessories you have in your closet.
Looking for a comfortable sandal to pair with all of your summer outfits? The Eileen Fisher Sport Tumbled Leather Sneaker Sandals have the design of a sandal with the sole of a sneaker for mega comfort and style. These ultra-comfortable sandals are made from durable tumbled leather and rubber for traction and comfort. They look great paired with our Slimming Ankle Pants for a more casual look and are available in three colorways to go with all of your summer outfits!
