Favorite go-to’s are a must for every season. Luckily, summer requires fewer pieces of clothing…we don’t have to worry about layering with heavy jackets, hats, or gloves. Summer fashion requires freedom for movement because of multiple outdoor activities, plus, well…it can be darn hot!  Here is my take on required summer staples to keep you fashionable and cool for the months ahead!


Sleeveless Top


Keep cool and bare your arms! Sleeveless tops are a must have as the mercury soars. Make sure the top is not fitted to your body…there will be no air circulation so sweat will appear on your top as opposed to evaporate and you will get the dreaded sweat stains! Keep it simple with a solid color or go bold such as this beautiful top by Toulani.


White Jeans


YES! White jeans are the epitome of the summer staple. We all know this to be true…see above photo!  White jeans make all your colorful clothing and accessories pop, plus can be dressed up or down. And with all of the various styles…cropped, skinny, boyfriend, cuffed, high-rise, mid-rise, low-rise…there is a style for everyone!


Best Dress…Throw on and Go!


When you have no desire to think about what to wear have your best dress available…the proverbial throw on and go!  This dress needs to be uber comfortable and very low maintenance.  Finley makes superb dresses and this light blue and white striped dress does not disappoint.


Sandals, Sandals, and More Sandals!


My feet get HOT in the summertime! As much as possible I slip my toes into sandals. Go for the on-trend block sandals, the classic Jack Rogers, or a little of both. Either way, let your feet be free!


We all have our summertime faves.  The key is to purchase the proper staple that makes you feel the absolute best!
