Summer Like It’s 2015

For those of us who use “summer” as a verb, there’s nothing better than looking the part. While we’ve all been tempted to just pull out last year’s cut-offs and worn-in camis from the deepest depths of our closets, we’ve got 12 reasons you should update your wardrobe so you can summer in style.

 

women's summer clothing and accessories wardrobe staples

 

 

1. Massini Matching Floral Separates: Worn together this outfit reads like a sundress, but worn apart these signature stunners are the perfect pairing for a black mini skirt or blue tee.

2. Lace Bralette: For those mega-hot days (they’re coming!), adding a lace bralette under skimpy strappy tanks will keep you cool and modest.

3. Gold Rimmed Aviators: This throwback style gets a 2015 update with gold rims designed to twinkle in the summer sun.

4. Rampage Gladiator Sandals: Ditch the flip flops for your trip to the beach and zip up a pair of gladiator sandals. It’s a subtle way to up your swimwear swag.

5. Distressed Denim Shorts: More sophisticated than the festival shortie (except we totally love those too, tbh) the clean folded hem on this denim short is a modern take on everyone’s fave summer bottom.

6. Falls Creek Blouson Maxi Dress: We’re crushing on this season’s new LBD – long black dress – as the answer to, “what do I wear?” Thanks to its maximum coverage, a black maxi can be worn to a wedding with caged heels and statement earrings as easily as it can be packed for a weekend at the cabin (bonus: extra mosquito protection).

7. Hot Water Bandeau Flounce Swimsuit: Our favorite strapless sporty suit gets girly with loose ruffles designed to move in the breeze. Coordinate with a floral print, or mix and match a patterned top with solid bottom for a totally new look.

8. Straw Fedora: Don’t let a weekend at the lake get the best of your hair. A straw fedora is a stylish way to protect your color, not to mention up your style cred when worn as the sole accessory to your bikini.

9. Fashion Scarves: Not just for winter! A lightweight scarf injects some color into your day. We love summer brights like lemon or aqua to make an otherwise casual outfit pop.

10. Statement Earring: Upgrade your go-to studs with a bold statement earring. While these are big enough to capture attention even when your hair is down, pull it back in a pony to really let these beauties shine.

11. Keds Triumph: White Keds go with every outfit under the sun. Casual cut-offs, a floral sundress, a cotton tee with leggings – this is the ultimate wear everywhere (and with everything!) summer shoe.

12. Union Bay Metallic Cork Sandals: Stand out at your next backyard BBQ with a metallic cork sandal. Uber comfortable but with a dash of sparkle, these are a must for any summer outing.
