In every wardrobe, there are a few key pieces from which you can build upon. Without them, you’re lacking a strong foundation to mix and match so you don't fall victim to fast fashion and nonstop shopping. Outside of the obvious such as a good pair of denim or shorts, I have rounded up five summer must-haves pieces to build your summer wardrobe.
The Solid White T-Shirt
I am sure we all have one of these in our closets.
Tucked into skirts, paired with denim or shorts, or layered over a fun printed pant, a great fitting t-shirt is a staple. I recommend something that fits a bit loose, not oversized, but something that is flatering not too tight. I love all the t-shirts out right now because they’re oh-so-soft and come in a variety of necklines.
A well fitting button-down is a fantastic option, not only as a stand-alone piece, but also for adding light layers to an outfit. Want to cover up while at the beach? Throw on a button-down over your swimsuit for a great beach style! Want to get that cool, classic weekend look? Pair it with a checkered shirt and shorts
The Lightweight Jacket
While I am all about tank tops and off-the-shoulder silhouettes this summer, having a lightweight jacket is a must, especially on those chilly summer nights. Consider wearing a fun color that pops against neutrals, this way you can completely change your look from day to night.
The Cotton Dress
Lightweight, breathable, and worn dressed up or down, go for a dress in a fun pattern or print that can be worn both with flats or a wedge heel, depending on the look you’re going for. I love this striped option that can go from the beach to cocktails in an instant.
The Flat Leather Sandal
In the summer, it’s all about enjoying the beautiful weather! While I love a great pair of heels, I want to make sure my footwear still looks cute and works with a variety of outfits, even when I’m running around doing errands all day. There are so many options in a variety of budgets. Just make
they are comfortable
