First, find the perfect pair of pants for you. Then add tops that you can wear under a variety of different layers.  Different necklaces can give the outfit a different look.

Now switch your pants for a skirt and add colour some colour. You will achieve a lovely layered look.

Let’s start with Chris’ fancy pants and how she wears them.

tshine_photo-7    tshine_photo-42

Chris also teams this with a T top for a more casual look.

tshine_photo-44    tshine_photo-43

Shorts and T-top are another staple for summer. You’ll notice the red and the white tops also look great with these shorts.  Remember 3 tops for each bottom is a great formula.

Now look at how Chris takes the black pants from THE ARK from casual to dressy.

Highlights from Viv’s Summer Wardrobe

I want to show you how to go about creating a capsule wardrobe for summer that gives you many outfits using only a few pieces of clothing.

So, I start with white basics for summer – white pants and a white cami.

tshine_photo-12

Then I make sure I have at least 3 tops for each bottom.

tshine_photo-48

tshine_photo-14

The white top I’m wearing below with fancy pants would also work well with my white pants.

tshine_photo-5

Then I do it all again starting with my black basics.

tshine_photo-67

Here I’ve used pearls to add a bit of glamour.

tshine_photo-68

Scarves are great for adding a pop of colour!

tshine_photo-24

This top works well for day time or night time just depending upon what colour I am wearing underneath.

tshine_photo-73

Hats! Have some fun with hats! Not only are they a fun accessory but often they are necessary.

Below are the shoes that I’ll be wearing this summer.
