In addition to rising temperatures and weekend trips away, summer brings with it a hard to shake urge to shop. Maybe it’s because the weather’s heating up and those weekend jaunts require cute new outfits, but refreshing our summer wardrobehas never been easier with our summer style tips. Read on!
DON’T underestimate the power of a T-shirt dress
The throw-on-and-go T-shirt dress is perfect for summer. Wear yours from day to night by transitioning into slightly fancier footwear and some fun accessories. Bonus: T-shirt dresses are easy to travel with—they rarely wrinkle and don’t have to be dry-cleaned!
DO try a new sunglass silhouette
Whether it’s round, cat-eye, oversize, or aviator, try a sunglass shape you’ve never tried before.
DO add a pop of color
Find a brightly colored bag or shoes to pair with your wardrobe basics—it’ll infuse a little summer into an otherwise neutral outfit.
DON’T put your boots away
Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean that you can’t wear boots anymore. Sure, they’re heavier than a summer sandal, but they add a little edge to sweet summer shorts or a sundress.
DO make sure you have a classic white shirt
We’ve sung the praises of classic shirting for all seasons, and summer is no exception. Basically, every outfit looks polished when you start with a crisp white shirt—you can even throw it over a bathing suit at the beach.
