While we all love trends, no wardrobe is complete without essentials. Those are the items you turn to to make almost every outfit. From simple white T-shirts to classic maxi dresses, they’re the kind of pieces every summer wardrobe needs. So, if you want to up your style game this sunny season, you need to know what they are. We’ve put together a list to guide you through all the essential summer staples to make yours the most chic season ever.
1. White T-shirt
The white T-shirt may not be the most attractive piece of clothing, but it is one of the most versatile. Simple summer style can partner with almost everything and look great. So, whether you’re wearing black pants, a patterned skirt, maxi dress or jeans, you can never go wrong with this staple piece.
2. Denim Jacket
Although you don’t need a lot of outerwear in the summer, a denim jacket is essential. Perfect for mornings and evenings, the classic design will keep you warm even when the temperature drops.
3. Classic Two-Strap Sandals
No one likes sweaty feet in summer. As such, this time of year is perfect to ditch your classic pumps and rock two-strap sandals instead. The open style will not only keep your feet from overheating, but it will also enhance the appearance of your feet.
4. White Shirt
A white button-up shirt is another versatile summer look. It can be worn with jeans, shorts, skirts and underdresses. Along with adding a touch of polish to casual outfits, this style is also perfect for enhancing your glowing summer tan.
5. Carryall Tote
When summer comes, it’s time to bring out the carryall hat. The large and spacious bag will hold your phone, wallet, bottle of drinks, sunscreen, sunglasses, and a breeze karting around the beach.
6. Boyfriend Jeans
While skinny jeans are undoubtedly a winter essential, boyfriend jeans are a staple of summer. Casual, comfy, and oh-so-cool, these comfy pants exude the perfect vibe for sunny weather. Just remember to choose summer shades of blue instead of deep, winter blacks.
7. Shirt Dress
Whether you’re heading to the office, for an evening drink or for brunch at your favorite cafe, a shirt dress makes an excellent dress choice. The chic and simple style is perfect to make you feel cool and look effortlessly elegant.
8. Midi Skirt
Forget the mini, summer’s new skirt staple is the midi. Not only is the style chic and flattering, but it’s also perfect for keeping you cool and comfortable at the same time. Invest in one that you love, and you’ll be able to wear it with flats during the day and heels at night.
9. White Sneakers
Keep your feet feeling fresh and fresh this summer with a pair of white sneakers. The minimalistic shoe is a must-have footwear style and is perfect for both busy days and lazy weekends.
10. Denim Shorts
When you want to show off your legs in the summer, denim shorts are a perfect choice. Try pairing one with a T-shirt and sneakers for a cute casual look or a button-up and booties for something a little more luxe.
11. Maxi Dress
When the weather is hot, tight and restrictive clothing can be a nightmare. It’s no wonder why maxi dresses are summer’s favorite style. Long, billowy and airy, the maxi is everything you need to beat the summer heat in style.
12. Hite Pants
There is something very refreshing and chic in wearing white in summers. So, instead of rocking your usual black pants this sunny season, opt for white. Whether you make your pants straight, flared, wide-legged, cropped or made of denim, white can make a seriously stylish choice.
13. T-shirt Dress
Casual, casual, and versatile clothing make for some great wardrobe items. One such item is the T-shirt dress, and it is a must-have for summers. You just need to find the right one for you, whether it’s plain, striped, sequined, or oversized.
14. Breton Stripes
A Breton striped T-shirt has long been a summer staple. The nautical-inspired blue and white design looks perfect when paired with jeans or denim shorts and is eye-catching without being too heavy.
15. Ballet Flats
Ballet flats are a great footwear style for summer. Chic and casual shoes can be worn with jeans or pants just as easily as with a dress or skirt. While there are so many fun and bright options to buy, you can never go wrong with a standard black style.
