Top 7 Summer Wardrobe Essentials
Summer is officially here—we’ve reached June, consistent sunshine, warm breezes, and maybe that annoying hint of humidity. Though our summer may not look like the rooftop bars, beach and boat days, and nighttime concerts, that doesn’t mean that we can’t look great with the plans we do have—which means it’s time to hit our closets!
Take the time to go through your closet before summer gets in full swing. Switch out your seasonal clothes, and make space for the summer goodies. When you take the time to take the winter out of your closet, you make more space for the top summer wardrobe essentials! Make sure your style is ready for summer and sun—ensure that these staples are in your closet this season.
A Nice White T-Shirt
Don’t underestimate the power of a white T-shirt! These are a summer staple that you can dress up or down depending on what you pair them with. Sure, you can have the cheaper V-necks, but don’t be afraid to spend a little more on a nicer white tee. You can wear it anywhere, and with the heat of the summer, you’ll be glad you chose white over black.
A Denim Jacket (Or Two)
Of course, we all know about the power of a good denim jacket. This year, make sure you have a few different denim jacket options. Go for your traditional blue denim jacket (cropped or not), but think about getting a white or black denim jacket as well. It’s the perfect piece to transition from the swelter of summer days to the cooler summer nights.
Who wears jeans in the summer—you sure should! Even if you find yourself getting hot, jeans are still a great choice for the season. Boyfriend jeans give you a bit more breathability than their jegging siblings and allow for that more relaxed feel for summer BBQs. If you can’t find the right style boyfriend jeans for your body, try to at least get a looser pair of jeans with a rolled hem!
Jean shorts have to be on the list of top summer wardrobe essentials. It doesn’t matter what your favorite style is—booty or Bermuda. Either way, jean shorts are a must. Get a few pairs if you know you’ll be wearing them throughout the summer. A perfect summer look: jean shorts, a white tee, and a pair of fashion sneakers; it’s perfection!
Casual and Dressy Dresses
Whether you consider yourself a dressy girl or a casual queen, make sure you have a few different dress options in your closet this summer. It’s super simple to just toss on a dress when you’re not sure what to wear. Go for a T-shirt dress, a maxi, or a shirt dress!
Fashion sneakers are absolutely in—make sure you have a pair. Whether they’re white chunky sneaks or colorful Nikes, your shoes can make or break your outfit. Even just one or two go-to pairs could be the difference between blistered feet and happy feet.
The Perfect Sunnies
Don’t forget about sunglasses! Big and bold are in this season, but whatever you choose, make sure you feel confident in them.
