When summer rolls around I’m always super excited about getting a ton of new pieces to add to my wardrobe, bathing suits, hats, rompers, jumpsuits, separates, sandals…. I want it all.
In reality, we can’t have EVERY single thing we want when it comes to our dream wardrobe (though mannn that’s the goal for me). But you can invest in a few key pieces that will freshen up your wardrobe and keep your look current– without blowing your entire paycheck.
Here are some of the key pieces you need for summer 2018
Whether its the ultra-popular Balinese inspired circle bag, or a large woven tote, a straw bag will add a dose of summery breeziness to basic outfits.
Flat Slide Sandals
The ideal sandal for the summer is simple, understated and chic. I love how flat slides are a bit androgynous and balance out more feminine looks.
Two Piece Set
Matching sets, whether they come in skirt, short or pant form, are the most versatile pieces for summer because you can wear them together or separately (duh). But really, they give you so much bang for your buck. I love tops that are slightly cropped paired with a high waisted skirt or pants because no matter what your body type, the waist is always fair game to highlight!
A Sexy One Piece
My favorite thing about one pieces is that they can double as bodysuits! I love a high cut leg and a top with a lot of support, but small chested girls can get away with some of those hot plunging ones (jealous).
A Day to Night Jumpsuit
Summer automatically makes every night even a little more casual, so you can get away with wearing more day-time pieces to happy hour, dinner, after-dinner cocktails and beyond, especially if you wear with the right accessories. A jumpsuit is the perfect wear-everywhere piece to take you from day to night.
