I live in brighter, breezier tops and flirty dresses and skirts – after all, it’s hot and I want to stay comfortable and chic. The summer collections are out in full force at designer stores as well as high street retailers so luckily there are a lot of choices for summer.
So how do you choose what to buy? Don’t get tempted to get a bright top in a few colors or a different pair of sandals every time they are on sale. If you step into a store and know the basic summer essential pieces that you need, you can build many outfits stylishly and affordably.
Here are my classic summer pieces:
It’s time to ditch the socks and find a pair of good sandals. While the type of sandal depends on your lifestyle, you can always find great options at Nordstrom’s (free shipping and no time limit for returns = great chance to find your perfect pair!)
Every retailer makes sunglasses so you can afford to either get a few pairs or splurge on a luxurious pair or two (not going to lie, I love my Tom Ford sunglasses!) But when I want a great pair for a great price, I head to H&M or Zara for some fashion forward options.
