5 MUST-HAVE SUMMER WARDROBE ESSENTIALS:

1

CASUAL WHITE JACKET (UNDER $100):

The first item on my list of summer wardrobe essentials is this easy and effortless light weight cotton jacket. It’s perfect to toss on when the sun goes down and that summer night chill creeps in. It also looks killer with a good pair of denim shorts. I’m wearing a XS in this summer staple.

IVORY BODYSUIT:

If you follow my LTK then this next piece on my list of summer wardrobe essentials is going to look familiar! I LOVE this bodysuit by Skims which is pretty obvious since it’s a major building block in a ton of my looks. It comes in a variety of colors, is super comfortable and is by far the best layering piece to wear under light-weight jackets in the summertime. I’m wearing an XS for size reference.

METALLIC HEELS:

Item #3 for this summer wardrobe essentials edit is these fantastic metallic heels by Cult Gaia. They are by far my most worn color  pair of heels or sandals in the summertime because gold and silver are super versatile and go with literally anything! I personally love to wear them with jeans, shorts, dresses, and skirts.

SHOP NOW

BUDGET FRIENDLY VERSION:

If the designer pair is out of your budget then these heels by Vince Camuto are a fabulous dupe to the designer option. They have a bit more coverage to their design but are just as comfortable and equally as fabulous! They are also on major sale right now making them well under $100!

RAFFIA HANDBAG:

Every summer wardrobe needs an ” it bag” and this raffia handbag from YSL is the perfect candidate! I carry my YSL raffia handbag all the time in the summer because it is so versatile it goes with everything. I also find it to be the perfect size for day or night, no matter where your headed this bag can carry it all!

SHOP NOW

BUDGET-FRIENLDY VERSION:

If the designer option is out of your budget this affordable dupe is for you! I do find this option to be slightly smaller in size, so you might have to sacrifice your back-up lip gloss, but for the difference in price you can’t go wrong! In all honesty, you will be happy with either one, I guarantee it.

SUMMER BLAZER:

The next piece I’ve featured in this summer wardrobe essential edit is this stunning oversized blazer by Madewell. It’s perfectly oversized, which is very trendy for summer and light weight so you won’t get overheated. I comes in 2 colors and is very affordable with a price point below $150. I’m wearing a size XS and it looks great when worn with shorts, as you can see in look 3!

DENIM SHORTS:

Agolde Dee shorts are my favorite style of denim shorts! They are high-waisted and a bit longer so they’re very age-appropriate. The exact ones I’m wearing are unfortunately sold out but I’m linking you too a pair that are the exact same cut and brand, just a little different wash.I find they run TTS and I’m wearing a size 25.
