If there's ever a season of the year to stick to a capsule wardrobe, it's the summer! If you're like me, you wear a whole lot of shorts and tanks, with a few cute dresses and rompers thrown in. So here you go! A run down of 9 essentials to have in your closet this summer.
Every summer wardrobe needs a pair of denim shorts like these for everyday wear! Not to mention you can dress them up with a sweet top for a backyard party. Yes, please! Add a pair of colored shorts like these, or striped shorts to your closet for when you want to stay cool but leave the classic blue denim behind. A simple, basic tee like this one goes perfectly!
2) Tank Tops
If you’re like me, staying cool is the name. of. the. game. during the summer heat. Having a few comfortable and cute tanks is a must! Simple colors make them easy to pair with almost anything. And versatility is what we are going for, isn’t it? As effortless as they are with a pair of some denim, consider pairing them with some linen pants like these when you feel the urge to up your style game. Shop this tank now!
If you haven’t jumped on the romper train yet, you’re missing out, sis! A dressier one is perfect for work or dinner out. Maybe even a 4th of July gathering! Yes? For a super casual, everyday romper that’s ideal for lounging at home, heading to the farmers market, traveling, or hitting the pool, try this cutie! You’ll n e v e r want to take it off. Now that’s what I call a win:)
5) Striped Tees
You can never have too many stripes (in my humble opinion). Whether they are simply stated or bolder, stripes are flattering, stylish, and timeless. Toss them on with your favorite jeans or a cute skirt and bam...you’re set! Stripes can take you from day to night in a breeze. AC making your life easy, one stripe at a time;) Shop this striped top or this one now!
6) Summer Dresses
One of the cutest and easiest ways to beat the heat is by having a couple of simple, sweet, and comfortable dresses in your wardrobe line-up. I’m not generally a dress wearer but during the summer I want them all. of. the. time. Plus they are so much fun to play around with! A little bit fancier dress can be styled casually just by pairing it with some simple sneakers or some casual, every day sandals like. This dress and this dress are now available at AC!
7) Detailed Top
Since a t-shirt doesn’t cut it aaaaaall of the time...add a couple of tops with a little charming detail! Tops like this one will take you to a summer concert in the park, to church, to brunch, or even for family beach pics! So sweet! But you don’t have to compromise comfort for style. With looser fitting tops, special pieces like these can still be practical and cool in the warm weather.
A brown flat sandal is a definite must! For the comfiest sandal check these out. And if you need your toss-'em-on-with-absolutely-anything pair, these are perfect too! The perfect brown sandal will go with a n y t h i n g! Pair them with your denim shorts or a cute dress! No need to have a million shoes per season, a couple of pairs can take you so far. Simple life, sis...it’s a wonderful thing:)
Every season, forever and always, you can’t live without your favorite jeans. I’m currently loving a good pair of high-rise denim like these cuties available at AC soon! Not only do they help suck some stuff in ::wink wink::, but they’re the perfect fit for a little front tuck of your favorite top. And truly, who do they not look good on?! They create such a flattering silhouette, are incredibly practical (no worries when bending over at your job or at home), and really comfy. I like it!
I hope you enjoyed this snapshot of a simple, easy, and effortless summer capsule wardrobe! Some items pictured are currently not available at August Cloth. But stick around! They'll hit the shop soooooo soon;)
