Summer Styling with Sancia

When it comes to effortless summer style, wanderlust seems to be the name of the game, with our new favorite brand really leading the pack. This Australian company was created to showcase the ideal mix of global influences and beachy Australian vibes. The story starts in 2013 with leather accessories (with brushed gold hardware that’s to die for), but lucky for us they decided to expand to apparel so we can fill our closets with the dreamiest pieces. We are head-over-heels in love with everything they have, but here are our top 5 summer wardrobe essentials.

1. Statement Shorts

Shop the striped flowy shorts from Sancia

When the sun is shining and all there is to worry about is whether you’re going to spend your twelve hours of daylight at the beach or curled in the hammock with a new book, there’s only one appropriate uniform: shorts. We’re all for those trusty denim cutoffs that you’ve had for years, but once you slip on the Sabrina Shorts, you probably won’t want to wear anything else. Not only are they so comfy with the super relaxed fit, but also they showcase the official pattern of summer (at least in our opinion). 

2. Casual Blouse (that can be worn with anything)

Shop the flowy painters shirt with buttons from Sancia

Some people might think that button-down shirts are meant only for days in the office, but we are here to tell you that that's utterly and completely wrong. The Estelle Painters Shirt brings the perfect free-spirited style with the slouchy fit, and you can wear it in (approximately) a million different ways — we’re talking over your swimsuit on beach day, French-tucked into jean shorts, or tied at the waistline with your favorite utility jeans.

3. Sunny Pants

Shop the mustard high-waisted paperbag pants with stripes from Sancia

In case you haven’t yet realized, mustard is the color of the season (and the official condiment of summer barbecues). Even better than brightening up any outfit, these high-waisted paperbag pants have a relaxed fit that will make it feel like you’re strolling around in your pajamas while making you look like you just came from a day in Paris. The Lida Pants are super lightweight to keep you comfortable even when the sun is strongest — just tuck in a tank top for the perfect casual-chic outfit.

4. Function Meets Everything-Else-You-Could-Want-in-a-Bag

Shop the bamboo rattan structured bag from Sancia

Gone are the days of simply grabbing whatever purse you can find, because with a statement as striking as the L'echelle Mini crossbody bag, you’ll never pass up an opportunity to catch some eyes. The structured design means no more digging around trying to find your keys amongst the madness, and the mix of bamboo and leather is about as beautiful as you could imagine.

5. Jump into Jumpsuits

Shop the fit-and-flare jumpsuit with buttons from Sancia

You know the feeling when you just slip on a dress and all of a sudden you feel like you can do anything? Well with jumpsuits, you really can do it all. The Lia Jumpsuit has the versatile look of a maxi dress — perfect for beach weddings, brunch with your besties, or just strolling around your city — and the lightweight feel and spaghetti straps will make it your go-to one-piece outfit as long as there’s a hint of sun. Want to bring even more winery-weekend vibes? Look to the Palma hat from Lack of Color to bring it all together.
