I Just Created 4 Perfect Summer-Outfit Ideas From Arket's Latest Drop

·3-min read

If there's one thing that Arket has always been reliable for it's a strong staple. Far from being an after-thought, the brand has gone to great lengths to refine its offering of blazers, white tees, and jeans so that each item looks just as impressive as a stand-alone as it does when paired with statement-making items. Summer 2021 is no exception, and Arket's latest drop is packed full of hard-working basics that will form the core of your warm-weather capsule.

Just to prove this fact, I've hand-picked four key items from the brand's summer edit and created four outfits that are 100% ready for balmier days. These are pieces that will work for all sorts of occasions and are incredibly adaptable. For example, I've styled Arket's tailored linen trousers with a weekend-ready tank top and cage sandals; however, they could just as easily be elevated with heeled sandals, gold jewellery, and a silken blouse for Friday-night cocktails. Even the brand's bold leopard-print shirt could be mixed up with denim and sliders for the daytime and then dressed up with a black slip skirt and heeled boots in the evening.

Scroll down to see and shop my easy Arket summer outfits. The heatwave is coming, so it's time to get wardrobe prepping.

The Short-Sleeved Shirt

Style Notes: I've become a little obsessed with leopard print this season, and it makes for an ideal pairing with stripped-back separates, such as jeans and a linen blazer.

The Shorts Set

Style Notes: If you're a big fan of the low-maintenance jumpsuit, then you need to see this season's shorts-set trend. All this Arket pairing needs is tan sandals and round sunnies.

The Shirt Dress
