There are a few key pieces I find myself wearing summer after summer. Despite changing trends and closet inventory, I always have these wardrobe staples on hand, year after year. So I thought I’d share a few of my summer wardrobe staples with you today! White Denim – Although I vary the length and style of my white denim from summer to summer, I always find myself wearing it in some form. I love the clean, fresh look of white in the summertime!
White Shorts – These don’t necessarily have to be denim, but white shorts in general are a continuous staple in my summer wardrobe. They give that clean, fresh, summery look that I mentioned above, but they’re also nice and cool for those hot, hot days. And white looks SO good with brightly colored tanks and tees!
Printed Shorts – I wear a lot of shorts in the summertime, what can I say! If I’m not wearing white shorts, you’ll most likely find me in printed ones. J.Crew and Gap are among my favorite brands for shorts – they fit me well and always have a variety of colors and prints to choose from!
Solid Tanks & Tees – I would call my overall style classic with a twist and solid tanks and tees are classic pieces that I like to have on hand. J.Crew’s perfect-fit tanks and vintage cotton V-neck tees are among my favorites. I have almost every color!
Flowy Tops – I like the airiness of a flowy top in the summertime. Anything with a little movement that lends itself towards a slightly bohemian vibe is right up my alley (and so comfortable).
Maxi Dresses – I can’t live without a few maxi dresses. I know that sounds dramatic, but they’re the easiest way to look chic on days that I don’t even feel like getting dressed (especially for work). They’re like wearing pajamas, but you get to look super cute (and daytime appropriate) too!
Flat Sandals – I know these are my summer wardrobe essentials, but I couldn’t help but include a shoe. The perfect flat sandal will go with everything, look chic and remain comfortable no matter what you’re doing. A little touch of gold (or silver, or rose gold…) provides the perfect dressed-up casual vibe that I love. What are your summer wardrobe staples???
