3 Summer Wardrobe Essentials

Shopping for your summer wardrobe is as simple as 1-2-3. Given you likely already have many suitable items in your wardrobe, just a few new pieces will keep it relevant and on-trend. After all, while replacing your entire wardrobe every season would certainly be fun, it’s not in the budget for most of us.

Here’s what you need:

3 Summer Essentials

  1. Lightweight sweater– this piece is a staple for cool evenings or chilly office spaces.  A vibrant cardigan is so versatile you can wear it with your pencil skirt for business and your denim skirt for weekends.  Wear it open over a tee, belted over a tank or buttoned up over a dress.  Options, options, options.
  2. Simple Earrings– one pair, in your favorite metal color, is the perfect summer accessory.  They literally can go from day to night, office to weekend.  A one time purchase gives you a summer’s worth of wear.
  3. Print Tank– While you may already own several basic tanks (which are fabulous for layering), you’ll want to add one with a fun print and gorgeous color to keep your summer wardrobe fresh.  Pair it with a pair of shorts, white jeans or a flirty skirt for casual gatherings or a day of window shopping at beachside boutiques.
