Building a summer wardrobe can be stressful, especially living in Ireland where “summer” could mean anything from 25C temps to days of lashing rain.

With that in mind, we turned to some of our favourite style mavens to ask them what their one can’t-live-without-it summer style essential is…

Lorna Weightman, Style Isle

Her summer staple: A crisp white shirt.

Fitted Boyfriend Oxford Shirt, €39.95, Gap

“Not only has white been the colour trend of the season, a classic piece like a shirt is very easy to style. I love taking the casual route, pairing a shirt with some light wash skinny jeans and a great pair of heels. Perfect for warm summer days and evenings!

Grace Mongey, Faces By Grace

Her summer staple: Her Tom Ford sunglasses.

Azure Womens Straw Beach Bag, €54, Solamante
“Living in London there has been a serious lack of summer sun the past two months, so I probably look ridiculous walking around this big rainy city with a beach bag… but I think they are super chic!”

Jessika Banaghan, Chaos Wearing Lipgloss

Her summer staple: A pair of culottes

Life In Progress Chambray Culottes, €28, Forever 21

“In Ireland with its unpredictable weather, it’s tough to find separates that work. Culottes are so versatile, you can style them for day or night – and they are very comfy. I’d recommend checking out H&M or Forever 21.”

Joanne Larby, The Make Up Fairy

Her summer staple: A red maxi dress

Cross Neck Split Maxi Beach Dress, €39.44, ASOS

“A stunning maxi dress like this can be worn over a bikini, on a holiday night out or even to the airport with the right attire underneath. The colour is bold and bright and the material is comfortable and light.”

Tríona O’Donnell, modaFix

Her summer staple: Levi’s cut-offs

Levi’s 501 Denim Shorts, €56.34, ASOS

“I love to refashion my jeans to create above the knee roll-up shorts for everyday comfort and distressed cut-offs for holidays in the sun.”

Orla McConnon, The Orlacle

Her summer staple: White ankle-grazers

“My faves are the Leigh style from Topshop. I love pairing these with a light shirt tucked in for a smart-casual look.”
