Now that winter is over and warm weather is here, hopefully you've packed up those bulky sweaters and fleece-lined leggings 'til fall. It's time to start thinking about lightweight fabrics and breathable materials instead. If you haven’t got a decent summer wardrobe (or even if you do) here are a few summer wardrobe staples you'll want to keep in your fashion arsenal this season.
The Ultimate Summer Wardrobe Checklist
Jeans are a staple in every wardrobe because you can match them with anything and everything, but when it comes to summer, heavy denim can be a little too warm. Cue a good pair of jean shorts--perfect for the hot weather. There are so many ways that you can style jean shorts: They go great with a tee shirt, a flowy baby doll top or peasant blouse and can even be worn as part of an evening outfit, but it works better if they’re in black.
Comfort is absolutely key when you’re picking out a summer wardrobe so anything that is light and flowy is always your best bet. Womens maxi dresses are the ideal outfit for those hot days. Go for the lightest materials you can find and don’t be afraid to be bold with colours and patterns. Floral patterns, in particular, are perfect for a great summer outfit.
No summer outfit is complete without a good pair of sunglasses, but choosing the right pair can be somewhat complicated: you'll want them to match them to your face shape properly while considering color and style. Prepare to spend some time trying on a few different options before making your decision.
Duffel Bags & Totes
Summer is the time for getting outside and enjoying the sunshine, which means long days spent relaxing at the beach or by the pool. You’ll need a good bag that can hold everything you might need for the day, and duffel bags are great a great option. Roomy and stylish, opt for a bag made from cotton or linen, materials that are durable and easy to clean.
Sandals & Slides
We adore the look of bejeweled sandals, and we're seriously hoping they never go out of style. You can dress them up with a cute maxi or mini dress or make them the star of the show by pairing with basic jean shorts and a solid colored, lightweight tee.
Not feeling so fancy? Opt for a pair of wear-with- anything neutral colored slides instead.
Jewelery & Accessories
Much like fabrics, summer jewelry and accessories become lightweight, too. Thin chains, slim bangles and delicate hoop earrings pair well with summer fashion pieces. We love the look of a "snake belt" paired with dark wash jean or black cotton shorts, too.
