We all have those go-to pieces in our wardrobes that can make an outfit time and time again. Whether its the felt brim hat that ups your cool factor or the wrap dress that hugs you in all the right places-its important to build your closet around pieces that make you feel FAB. Your closet staples should be items that are easy and comfortable and reflect your personal style. Versatility is key-you need to be able to rework your go-to pieces into lots of different outfits. We decided to shoot an outfit made entirely out of the summer wardrobe essentials you need ASAP check out our faves below!
A girl can never have too many T-shirts seriously, they are the building blocks of any successful fashionista. And graphic tees should never be left out of the mix! These babies can spice up an outfit with a punchy phrase or image, and instantly upgrade your whole look. We love our Lets Run Amok Tee in this dark, stoney wash. Wear a tee like this half-tucked into flares, or with patterned shorts, like we did here. The dark shade of the top ties into the patterns outline in the shorts, while the white lettering breaks up the deep tones.
This season fringe. is. EVERYWHERE. We’ve seen everything from vests to jackets with layers upon layers of fringe. Our personal fave is the fringe bag. Whether its a crossbody or a tote, in leather or suede, fringe detailing on any bag brings a bohemian factor with a festival feel. We like that this one is small enough to not get in the way but large enough to carry our daily essentials. Throw this on with skinnies, a leather jacket, and your favorite booties for a night out. Or keep it casual with a floaty dress and strappy sandals for a day of shopping.
The seventies trend has officially taken over the fashion world, and we are LOVING it. The easiest way to channel your inner flower child? Throw on a pair of chunky platforms. We love wooden ones with leather straps, like the ones featured here (bonus points for the gorgeous color). You’d be surprised how versatile these sandals can be. They’re casual enough to wear with flowy shorts, like these, yet they can easily dress up a cute maxi for a summer wedding. Add loose waves and a pair of round sunnies and boom you’re hippie proof.
Wide Brim Hat
Another one of our FAVORITE accessories for summer is a wide brim hat. Whether it’s a felt panama or a straw fedora, hats are your ultimate wardrobe weapon. They make practically ANY outfit and give off that cool girl vibe that we all strive for. Toss one on with anything from jeans and a tee to a printed jumpsuit we promise it will go with juuust about everything. Its also a major bonus that hats work perfectly well as a cover up for those days when you just can’t with your hair.
