Must-Have Summer Staples

Summer is coming up and if you live in the south it’s here. If you are looking to update your summer wardrobe, this post is for you. I’ve picked up must-have Summer staples for your closet. Everything you will find is an item of clothing that is versatile, classic, and are great season transition pieces.

I’m a neutral wardrobe person, if you like more color, I’ve included pieces that have different color options.

Summer Tops

Lightweight Sweater –  Every closet needs a lightweight off the shoulder sweater for cool summer nights. This sweater can be worn with shorts, over a bathing suit, and then transition into the Fall.

Striped V-neck – Vneck t-shirts are a MUST in every closet. This one is super comfy and comes in solids and stripes. I like to pair mine with jeans or jean shorts.

Oversized T-shirt – Hands-down my goto shirt. If you want something comfortable and stylish this t-shirt is it. Wear it down with Nike shorts, or dress it up by tying a knot and pairing with jeans, shorts, or a stylish skirt.

Crewneck Tanktop – This tank top is flattering, crazily affordable, and can be dressed up or down.

Lace trim Cami– I love pairing lace trim camis with jean jackets, kimonos, or a good pair of mom jeans.

White Tank – Everyone needs a classic white tank top in their closet.

Graphic Muscle Tank– I’m obsessed with the graphic muscle tank. It would go great paired with distressed jean shorts and booties.

Jacket and Cardigans

Jean Jacket – This jean jacket is perfect for all seasons and super affordable.

Cardigan  – I love wearing a lightweight cardigan in the summer. They are perfect for cool evenings.

Kimono – This kimono adds just enough flare to make casual clothes a litter more dressy.
