It is finally the time of year where we can show a little skin, and have some fun with our wardrobe. In my opinion, there are six basic pieces that every woman needs for summer that are very simple, but can make any outfit fun and perfect for the season. These six pieces can be dressed up or dressed down, and fit almost any summer occasion.
One: Gladiator sandals. Gladiator sandals are very popular, and they can play up any outfit. Whether it is a simple outfit of jeans and a tee, or a dress, gladiator sandals is the perfect addition to any summer outfit.
Two: Statement necklaces. Statement necklaces are very in. These necklaces can make the simplest outfit exciting and flirty. Good colors to buy statement necklaces in for the summer are bright, bold colors, but if you would prefer just silver or gold, black or white, those look great too! Statement necklaces are also good for playing up plain tees, as well as adding flair to an already dressy outfit.
Three: Maxi dresses and skirts. Maxi dresses and skirts are summer. Whether they are printed, patterned or solid colored, maxi dresses are great for any and every summer event. Floral prints are a great pattern to get maxi dresses and skirts in because summer is all about floral prints. It is the perfect season for light and pretty floral prints. Maxi dresses and skirts look great with denim jackets and cardigans, wedges, sandals or flats. You can pair printed maxi skirts with plain tops, or pair solid maxi skirts with printed tops. Maxi skirts are perfect for the season, and very versatile.
Four: White jeans. First off let me say that I am a firm believer that white should be put away after Labor Day. White jeans are reserved for spring and summer only. Unless it is winter white, or it is corduroy material, leave these for the warmer seasons only. White jeans are very versatile, and can easily make any outfit classy and elegant. White pants look especially great with black tops, pastels, and of course white. Make sure you have a pair of these in your summer wardrobe.
Five: Simple white and black tees. Plain tees may seem boring, but with the right accessories, and when paired with the right clothes, these can complete any outfit. These can go with printed or bright colored bottoms, jeans, sandals, or under jackets, blazers or cardigans for those sometimes chilly summer nights. You can pair this with jeans and sandals to run errands, or with loud pieces for a night out. These are necessities for any feminine summer wardrobe. Every woman needs plain white and black tees.
Six: Tote Bags. Last but certainly not least, a tote bag. Tote bags are great for year round also, but the summer time is when bright colored tote bags become very popular. It adds a pop of color to an outfit, and we all know women can never have enough purses, just like we can never have enough shoes or diamonds. Make sure you have a bold tote bag for the summer!
Make your summer wardrobe say something with these simple additions to your closet. Once you grab these items, you will wonder how you went without them once you see how they go with everything. Happy summer!
