10 Summer Wardrobe Essentials for 2016


At Shop Pyramid our task has always been to curate a selection of quality basics along with seasonal showpieces, that make getting dressed both easy and enjoyable in the mornings.  

Here are our suggestions for the foundation of your Summer wardrobe for 2016 - the post is certainly not exhaustive, but a good starting point for you.  We have chosen our favourite styles from our SS16 collection, styles that are 'on trend' for this spring whilst providing a basic foundation for your Summer closet. Take a look at what we have on offer:

1. Breton Striped Top

Our Striped Shirt from Humanoid is perfect for meeting a friend for coffee or having a browse at a newly discovered book shop. Made from a lenin and cotton blend it is ideal staple that creates a stylish, comfortable summer look.

2. A Pair of Mules

An incredibly awesome slip-on design that we cannot help but fall in love with - the Poser Mule from Dear Frances can be paired with skirts and cropped jeans for your summer staple from day into night.

3. Summer Boot

Our 'Float' boots by Dear Frances are a fashion blogger's favourite.  A timeless silhouette, they are your go-to staple for night and day.

4. Cropped Denim

Featured in Vogue magazine, the Mina Denim Trouser by Rodebjer is a high rise, cropped style that works great with tailored pieces like blazers and button-down shirts that balance out the look. 'Mina' can be paired with booties (such as the Santa Fe boots above) or platforms - also sneakers or sandals are ideal options.

5. Classic White Tee (not pictured)

A best seller since Shop Pyramid began, our classic silk tee 'Caro' by Marina London is a must for your summer capsule wardrobe and a perfect gift for a lover of silk.  To invest in the perfect white tee means to think quality - 'Caro' is created from Crepe de Chine 100% silk.

6. Parka

Military styles were a trend for Summer 2016 - and this reinterpretation of a military classic, our lightweight parka by House of Dagmar is a wonderful addition to your capsule wardrobe.  Wear with jeans or over short dresses for a casual look.

7. White Dress

You can't beat summer whites for a fresh take on everyday wear.  If you keep accessories basic and textured, our Parrot style from Humanoid is a perfect slice of everyday casual.

8. Suede Skirt

A nod to the 60s / 70s, our Aeron Blue Suede Skirt is an A Line style that shows off your waist nicely.

9. White Sneaker (not pictured - coming soon!)

For Summer 2016, our white sneaker from In Complete Control Shoes is a new classic.  A shoe silhouette that continues to reign supreme, ICC re-envision the style with a contrasting band over the upper foot. Check back in a few weeks to buy ICC shoes at Shop Pyramid. 

10. Little Black Dress (coming soon)

From Humanoid, the little black dress continues as a closet staple this summer.  with beautiful twisted back detail, this simple style is something you will want to pack in your holiday luggage!
