The beauty of the summer is that we can wear certain clothes that we are not able to wear in other months. I look forward to summer mainly because of the fashion. Below are 7 essentials I believe you may need this summer. Every item on this list I have needed this summer and have worn. If you have a summer must have that is not featured on my list, comment below. I love buying new items and would love to add to my closet.
Basic Tees-A must for summertime! Well anytime. I love basic tees. Honestly I haven’t worn anything else this summer besides basic tees. The thing I love about basic tees is that you can do so much with them. Adding a necklace, colorful pants, shorts, or skirt, a cute pair of shoes, different hairstyles are just some of the things that look great with a basic tee. I suggest at least having a white, black, and gray tee in your closet.
Bralettes-Bralettes have to be the #1 summer must have for 2016. I have recently became a fan of them and I love them. They are also great paired with a basic tee. I normally get mine from Target, American Eagle, and VS Pink. Prices for barrettes can range from $12-$30. They are great alternatives when you don’t want to wear a padded bra!
Sunglasses-You can never go wrong with a cute pair of sunglasses to spic up your outfit. I recently invested in a really nice pair of sunglasses and can I say ‘that was a good decision’. They match with every outfit and are so cute! However, my $5 ones work great also.
Black/Brown Sandals-If you have noticed I have constantly pointed out that neutral colors are the best! I mean black, brown, and gray go with every outfit! Having a pair of black and brown sandals this summer has been amazing! I literally don’t have to worry about finding shoes to go with my outfit because I have a pair that can go with any outfit. Target has some cute affordable sandals.
Shorts-Denim shorts will never go out of style. Definitely a must have! I love pairing denim shorts with a basic tee and bralette, my go to outfit this summer. I mean there’s not much to say about shorts. Maybe have one good light colored pair and one dark colored pair.
Neutral Swimsuit Top/Bottom- I absouelty love prints and colorful bathing suits. However I have found that if I pair a printed top/bottom with a neutral top/bottom it makes me look even better. Also having a good neutral colored top allows you to buy more printed colorful bottoms. And Vice Versa.
Romper-The thing that I love most about rompers, is that there are so many uses for them. Wearing them as they are is one way, wearing it as a coverup over a bathing suit, and wearing a romper and adding a shirt over it.
