Capsule Wardrobe Essentials for May

May has arrived and I’m hoping that we will enjoy some sunshine and warmth! So on a positive note here are my May capsule wardrobe essentials.

With the thought of bare legs it’s time to start preparing them to be on view so I will be using two products guaranteed to make them summer ready. Starting with This Works Dry Leg Oil to make them soft and smooth and then a daily application of St Tropez Every Day.

Once my legs are ready to bare I’ll be opting for easy jersey dresses like this spot print version and a summer skirt that can be dressed down with a T-shirt and wedges or up with heels and a jacket.

Talking of T-shirts, I will be stocking up on new ones for the season especially since Hush do a multi buy offer. Their T-shirts are┬ámid range prices but worth it for one whose seams don’t twist after one wash! For me black is essential but I love the blue and coral too.

When I’m not baring my legs I will be encasing them in a pair of colourful jeans, these come in 7 colours.

Wide leg linen trousers are a wardrobe staple for me and you can’t go wrong with navy. Add one of the aforementioned T-shirts or a pretty summer top and add a pair of this season’s must have tan sandals for easy chic.

Toes need some love to now sandal season is imminent. I love bright toe nails so I will be adding Chanel Desirio to my collection.

Finally summer flowers aren’t far away and I love the smell of Freesias so I will be spritzing Jo Malone’s English Pear and Fresia fragrance.

Have a stylish May – what are your essentials?
