My summer wild cards were playsuits. Not something I had ever worn and not really on my radar until I found the orange one, and it quickly became such a workhorse that I bought a navy blue one as well. My playsuits are light and comfortable in fabrics that don't crush.

I don't like wearing shorts because they seem to casual for my style. Playsuits are slightly more dressy than shorts and are just as practical.

On my trip to Japan (we came home today), I found my playsuits to be very useful in the warmer weather and easy to wear with a variety of footwear, but mainly sandals and sneakers. My current (Australian winter) wildcard was to buy two denim jackets, and these both got worn, with the playsuits on my trip. I wore the denim jackets most days because it was far more rainy than we expected. Luckily we were not in the areas that experienced flooding.
