Summer basics are so important for holiday style, I’ve picked many Mint Velvet summer pieces for my own curated summer style.
The first Mint Velvet summer addition to my wardrobe, although I haven’t worn it yet, is this gold metallic poncho (they do a silver too) – I feel this is going to be such a versatile items for my summer looks.
I’ll be wearing it at the airport, possibly as a beach cover up for those longer lunches that you tend to have! And should it be a little chilly come the evening, again, this is what I’ll grab. It’s s knitted poncho with gold metallic threading, it will elevate the daily basics, for sure.
Next up, is this high neck white vest top – I have not stopped wearing it! I’m actually going to get a second one as it’s been super useful in the few weeks I’ve had it – why so special?
The higher neckline sits really well under blazers, making it the perfect companion and as described in last week’s Styling Matters podcast, I’ve found it makes the best backdrop for statement necklaces. I’ve always felt that ribbed cotton feels more elevated than standard cotton finishes, but I guess that’s a personal choice. I highly recommend this top for lots of your summer styling – it’s a true basic that will take you anywhere!
The stripe high neck vest is slightly higher in price, but again so worth it. After loving the white vest, I’ve opted for this cream and black breton style high neck vest too – I’ll be using this more for my off-duty weekend styling where I wear a lot of black; this will give it more of a summer vibe and I loved wearing it last weekend.

The next few items are on my summer wish list, I think the white one-shoulder sequin top is definitely a must, I’ve just bought a maxi black slip skirt and I think this is going to be a super combo to go with it!
Investing in modern jewellery is key to keeping your style ageless, I am loving these Mint Velvet summer gold cuffs they’ll add interest to any summer look – I’m likely to wear them poolside too for that extra glam vibe.
To finish off the whole look, don’t forget the essential summer straw bag!
