Summer is in full swing here in China, and the warmer weather definitely has us all in a more laid-back mood. The feeling of fun and the endless possibilities that come with hotter days just makes life seem dreamier and softer, doesn't it? Add that ethereal aesthetic to your wardrobe this season with these must-haves! From flowy pieces that will float on your skin, to comfy staples you can easily mix and match, you'll be all set for your sweetest summer yet with these styles.

Fairy Fabrics

Floaty ruffles are your friend this season, adding a playful touch to your outfit. Up your blouse game by adding some of these textured tops to your closet.

Flowy Bottoms

Sure, jeans are nice but stay comfortable (yet still fashionable!) in the heat with some looser and more lightweight bottoms. They're great for a day out in the sun and go well with many of the pieces you probably already have in your closet.

Boho Style

Bohemian chic and summer pretty much go hand-in-hand. This style keeps it light and breezy with lightweight silhouettes, and is so effortlessly feminine it's no wonder it's one of the hottest fashions out there. These pieces just radiate dreamy getaway vibes with free-flowing fabrics and vibrant colours.

Slip Dresses

The slip is definitely one of the most versatile pieces you could own. Wear it over a basic tee for a more laid-back look, or layered over a chiffon long-sleeve for something more polished. Or, throw a lightweight blazer on top if you're a little more prone to getting chilly. The possibilities are endless! Plus, the silky material means you'll be comfy yet chic all day.

Off-the-Shoulder Dresses

Nothing gives off more laid-back, summery vibes than a dress that hangs off your shoulders. Just add a cute bag and throw on your favourite slip-ons for an effortlessly chic look.

Mules

Backless shoes are one of the hottest trends right now, and for good reason! They're key to a polished off-duty look that will also feel comfortable on your feet all day. Plus, they're so easy to mix and match with pretty much anything!

It can be difficult to put together a nice outfit for work when it's hot and humid outside. We recommend stocking up your wardrobe with these 100% work-appropriate items and you will never be out of ideas for what to wear everyday! It'll save you time in the morning, too.

Wide Legged Trousers

Tight pants are not your friend during the summer. Wide legged trousers are super comfy and keep you cool while not showing too much of your skin.

Long Shirt Dress

This fashionable, yet formal dress will carry you through the summer. Just slip it on, throw on some nice shoes and you're ready to go!

V-Neck Jumpsuit

Three words: onesies for grown-ups! You can layer a t-shirt inside, or quickly throw on a blazer and your outfit will be ready for your next big meeting.

Off-Shoulder Blouse

They show just the right amount of skin, and you can keep it on for your hot date right after work!

Formal Shorts

If shorts are allowed in your office, then don't be afraid to wear a conservative option that flatters your figure but doesn't reveal too much.

Blazer

A blazer can make a lot of your non-work clothing ready for the office! Just style a structured blazer on top, and you'll be grateful that you have it when the AC is blasting all day inside.

High-Heeled Sandals

The heel is high enough to demand respect, but not so high that your feet will hurt. Sounds pretty great to us!

Midi Dress/Skirt

The length of a midi dress or skirt allows you to wear it all year round! Choose a fun pattern if you dare, and you'll find that you've brightened up an otherwise drab office space.

The rose pink shade works best for those with a fair complexion. Keep it cool-toned and you'll be chic, not punk rock.

3. Caramel

If you are looking for something more tame and suitable for work or school, caramel is your color! Trust us, it's not boring at all.

4. Peach

The shape is not the best, but I like the style, and with a belt it will probably look much better. It fits very well and is just my size. It has an inner lining so it's not too thin and I don’t have to worry about it being see-through.

They are very comfortable! Next time I would order one size bigger. I hope they last a long time.

Dream Catcher Earrings

From ¥15.05

They are super cute, and very light, so they don’t drag my ears down. The seller also included a free pair of silver earrings with the purchase!

Total Price: 130.05 RMB

I think the fabric is comfortable and flattering. The white color is a bit sheer so make sure you don't wear anything dark colored underneath it!

These shoes are very comfortable to wear and look more expensive than they are. The color is nice too.

 It's light, cool and I love the design of the back. It's perfect for spring or summer, very versatile.

Total Price: 198.80 RMB

Cotton Off-Shoulder Top

From ¥25.10

The fabric is soft, it fits well and is perfect for the hot Shanghai weather. It will need to be ironed after it arrives.

A versatile skirt that is decent quality. Not bad!

12-Piece Choker Set

From ¥12.39

I liked the design, and each set includes so many! I will give some away as gifts to friends.

These shoes are comfortable and looked exactly as advertised. They are also available in larger sizes, which is really convenient.
