Spring is here, and summer is right around the corner! While we’ll enjoy the next month sporting our spring styles, it’s time to prep for the warmer days ahead. Here are some key pieces that are sure to make a splash in your summer wardrobe.
Summer means sunshine – and lots of it. Not that I’m complaining, but you need to be stylishly prepared. Rocking some statement sunnies like these translucent orange ones will keep the rays out of your eyes and make you look effortlessly chic.
Forget short skirts and denim minis, it’s all about the midi skirt this summer. This looks is as versatile as it is stylish. Cinching at your natural waist gives you a lengthened profile, and it’s appropriate for the office. You can pair it with a bright colored tank or lightweight t-shirt and you’re good to go!
Summer means it’s time to swap the black for bright hues. Find a bold dress in your favorite color, and keep it in your wardrobe rotation. This piece is perfect for the summer because you can dress it down with a light denim jacket, or dress it up for a night out by throwing on some strappy sandals.
Get ready to show off those tanned legs and perfect pedicures with some platform sandals. These shoes save your feet from the pain of a stiletto all while making your legs look long af. Find a pair in a fun color or print like floral or striped instead of your go-to black shoe. Throw them on with a maxi dress or linen pants, and don’t be afraid to mix prints.
Go-to Denim Cutoffs
This summer wardrobe staple is back again. Denim cutoffs can be dressed up or dressed down whether you’re headed to brunch or the beach. Try them in different washes, or grab a pair with some embroidered flowers to spice up your look.
