Summer Outfits are my jam, you heard that in Tuesday’s post! Read that here. Unless you have some great foundation pieces though, you’ll constantly be standing in your closet saying “I have Nothing to Wear!”. So today I’m sharing a short list of 10 items that will help to create the foundation you need for those easy, summer outfits and to help make getting ready on-the-go much easier for you!
Summer basics are easy really… you start with tops, work to bottoms, and then get some amazing shoes and accessories that go with everyting. You’ll see above that I chose some great denim shorts and white jeans. That way you have a light and dark option for the bottom of any look. The Jeans are amazing and those shorts are such a great fit! They’re also on major sale at just $30!
A Basic Tee and Pullover Sweater will be your vices this season. This tee is $14 and the sweater is Free People and Under $50! Layer the tee with your white jeans and a denim jacket or just throw on with denim shorts… there are so many reasons you need a basic, white tee! Summer nights get chilly, so this sweater is going to be amazing for those nights at the beach and evening bonfires!
For shoes, I stay in flats mostly this time of year. I can’t recommend a good basic flat sandal enough and espadrilles are a necessity! These flat sandals are perfect for dresses, jeans, shorts, and basically everything in between! These espadrilles are a dream and add some height without giving a crazy heel! Basic shoes are such a necessity when building your collection of Summer Basics!
For Accessories I have three main suggestions: earrings, straw bags, and scrunchies! I have these turquoise earrings and they are just $12 right now! Grab em while you can! White earrings are such a great staple, so these are going to carry you well through the Summer! If you don’t have a straw bag, you need one! This one is such a great shape and the metallic will really pop with any outfit! It’s under $50 too!
Now, I never thought I would say this in my whole life… but you need a scrunchie in your life! I have several, but this is a great starting place for you! I have this one and wear it almost daily! It’s $6!
I hope this gave you some good tips to start building that stockpile of Summer basics! I can’t recommend starting here enough! Otherwise you will just end up with a closet full of things you don’t know what to do with!
