Summer is pretty much here which means it’s time to put away the sweaters and boots. If you don’t love your clothes from last year or simply need to give your wardrobe an overhaul, now is the time to start. If you need to completely update your wardrobe, the key is investing a few key essentials that will last beyond this season, and finding more affordable options for the trendy looks for this season. Regardless of what you need and your budget, we’re sharing a few of our must have warm weather items.
Warm Weather Essentials Every Woman Should Have in Her Wardrobe
The warm weather makes it the perfect time to add a few new dresses to your wardrobe. Best of all with so many styles it’s easy to find an option that works for your body. From A-line, wrap, short or maxi dresses there’s a style for every occasion. The key is finding a style and cut that fits your body and is comfortable. Dresses are a must have for any wardrobe update, whether you need cute plus size dresses or need a new classic black dress that can be worn in the office, on a date, on some weekend errands, or to lunch with the girls.
Ankle Crop Jeans
You may already have a few pairs of jeans sitting in your closet but the new essentials are ankle crop jeans. These are fit, skinny jeans that stop just above the ankle. They perfectly pair with just about any top you have and look amazing with heels, flats, or a stylish pair of sneakers.
Don’t be afraid to let your personal style shine through because there are all different options. You can go with a basic blue jean or choose from a rainbow of colors, try the distressed and holes fashion, or keep it low key, add some rhinestones and glitter or wear them plain.
The Right Underwear
Every woman knows how much your underwear can change the appearance (and how you feel) of your entire outfit. We’ve all dealt with bra straps that won’t stay put, a strapless bra that falls down, or the dreaded panty lines. As warm weather clothes are known to be made of thinner materials, you need the right underwear in your wardrobe. Take the time to find underwear that fits you and doesn’t detract from your outfit. While it may have been a faux paux to see you bra peeking through, some tanks and tees are meant to show a cute, lacy bralette. While most bralettes don’t have the same support, they’re a great warm weather underwear piece. Also look for underwear in breathable fabrics.
There are going to be days where those high-heel sandals are wreaking havoc on your feet or an occasion that simply requires you to be dressed comfortably. Having at least 2 or 3 pairs of stylish flats in your summer wardrobe is a must. Again, there is no shortage of options. Don’t be afraid to experiment with colors and styles while still making sure the shoes are comfortable. Flats can be paired with just about all fashions and worn for both day and evening events.
White T-Shirt or Button-Up
If ever there was a more versatile item to have in your spring and summer wardrobe, it’s the white tee or button-up. Since they’re white, you’ll probably want to have more of them. They match with everything and can be easily dressed up or down with the right accessories.
Speaking of accessories, if you’re going to be fashionable this season then you need to have some staple accessories in your closet. A nice statement necklace, a few bangles, a couple of pairs of stud and hoop earrings, one or two in-season pocketbooks, and of course, a few pairs of sunglasses should do the trick.
Though summer has already started, it’s never too late to go out and find some great items to add to your wardrobe. As long as you’ve purchased the items listed above, you can mix, match, and wear them any way you’d like. You’ll look great in the office, running errands, and when you’re out having a good time.
