It’s officially here! The summer season is now in full swing and we couldn’t be happier about it. After months of bundling up in hats and gloves, crowding around the nearest fireplace and avoiding outdoor activities, we’ve been more than happy to trade all of that for warm summer nights, barbecues and a fun trip or two with our loved ones!
Another awesome thing about summer? There are so many new style possibilities! So today we wanted to round up 10 of our favorite summer essentials for 2018. Do you have any pieces you would add to the list? We want to hear about them!
1. A Pair of Fun, Sassy Shorts
For many of us, summertime is when we bare our legs for a few months in the hopes of catching a tan, but they can also be totally fun and totally functional! Even if you’re not a “shorts person” you won't want to pass up these cuties. We love these Casey Shorts with a striped tank and sandals for a Saturday afternoon, or with a silky camisole and cardigan for a date night out!
2. Comfy Boyfriend Jeans
Boyfriend jeans have finally established themselves as a classic staple for any girl’s wardrobe. What other piece says “I’m so comfortable” and “I’m so fashionably in the know” at the same time? Dress them up with heels and a flirty top, or down with a T-shirt and sneakers. Whichever way you choose, the Remy boyfriend jeans are the best of the best.
3. A Comfy T-Shirt Dress
Alyssa T-Shirt Dress in Grey - $34
Is there any piece that says summer in a more iconic way than a t-shirt dress? We love these because they’re so easy and comfy! Their perfect for lounging around with family friends, but they can also totally pass as suitable work wear too. One major bonus of our Alyssa T-shirt dress? Chec out the adorable waist tie detail that can be tied in the front or the back for a style all your own!
4. A Classic Tote Bag
Let’s face it, you’re going to need to carry around some supplies for all your epic summer adventures. And what better way to do that than with a classic tote that is both stylish and functional? This one has all the room you need for your sunglasses, a light sweater, your cell phone and some summer reading to boot! As a bonus, you can also transition this tote into your fall wardrobe as well.
5. A Flirty Sundress
There is nothing quite like finding the perfect floral dress for summer. These can so easily go from day to night, and from wedding receptions to beach vacations in a flash! The fitted bodice on our Lennon Midi Dress makes the fit of this one especially flattering, and totally gorgeous for every occasion.
6. A Breezy Summer Hat
What is summertime without a classic straw hat to (literally) top off your outfit? We love the special little suede tassel detail on this one, and we can’t wait to wear it with jeans and a vintage tee, and our favorite floral dresses too! This hat is the perfect way to add instant style to every outfit. You’ll reach for this one time and time again, we promise.
7. A Relaxed, Easy Jumpsuit
For those hot summer nights, you'll want to be totally stylish but still totally cool. That’s why we love an easy breezy jumpsuit for fun summer activities. The Amber Jumpsuit is especially perfect because of the cute tie front and cut-out back details that are sure to make you stand out in a crowd. Plus, the price on this one is too good to miss!
8. A Cute, Basic Crop Top
The thing about a striped crop top is it goes with everything. Not to mention they’re absolutely perfect for layering with all of your other summer must-haves! This year we love wearing ours with a pair of high waisted jeans or a flowing midi skirt. Don’t sleep on this staple!
9. The Perfect Slip-On Flat
Since the theme for this summer is easy and light, don't your feet deserve the same? If you're not at the beach, lose the flip-flops and try our totally classy Joanna Mules instead. They're easy and casual, but look great with shorts, jeans, and dresses alike! As a bonus, they come with an optional and totally adorable tie-up lace detail as well!
10. A Stylish Beach Throw
You’re one of a kind, so why not say that with your swim accessories as well? Use it as a towel, a blanket or a wrap. This stylish beach throw will keep you dry, comfortable, and fabulous all summer long. We’ll see you at the pool?
What are some of your style essentials this summer? We'd love to hear about them!
