Wardrobe Staples

6 Summer Wardrobe Staples

Summer means heat, so turn it up with your fashion by keeping cool in fabrics and styles that are light, airy and perfect for the upcoming season of fun!

What makes Summer SUMMER more than some wardrobe tweaks and additions? Try these on for size:

Blazin' Blazers

A chic, well-fit blazer instantly dresses up any tank with jeans. Think nautical blues and clean lines, something that could be worn at a bar, in a restaurant or even on a boat! The key is fit. If you find the perfect color or style blazer that doesn’t fit perfectly, simply head to the tailor so that it fits YOU to a T.

The White Tee

Ever versatile, always classic, a white tee looks crisp against a summer tan.

Not Just Black and White

If you rock out a striped tee, throw in a pop of color in the form of a flirty scarf or hot pair of pumps. Patent leather always jazzes up the everyday striped tee and jeans look.


It’s totally cool to sport a tote bag. It’s practical when you spend a long day outside (you may need that lipgloss, bottle of water and compact!) and it’s also a cute way to give your look personality with a printed tote or one with a touch of sparkle.

To the Max(i)

The maxi skirt wasn’t like the gladiator sandal trend: it is here to stay, and we say “thank you”! From pleated silks at BCBG to printed delights at ASOS, there is no lack of gorgeous, floor-skimming beauty. Throw on a fun layered necklace and a tank and you’re ready to greet the hot Summer day.

Shorts, Of Course!

Don’t be afraid to show off those stems. If you’ve worked hard to get those legs in shape and have a touch of tan already, then don’t be shy: rock a pair of short jean shorts or a pair of shorts with a fun tropical print. Remember to keep the top and shoes simple, and don’t be afraid to wear heels with shorts this season. Your legs will look like they go on for miles!
