Summer fashion

It is hard to believe summer is already here! I’m a little behind on shopping for the season’s wardrobe essentials due to the hot weather these days. To keep things simple and direct, this list of summer must-haves is narrowed down to 10 items. There’s always something new to buy, from classic prints in refreshing cuts to trusty staples upgraded with unexpected details.

1. Striped Jumpsuit from MASANDCHRIS

My “one-and-done” summer outfit is a fuss-free striped jumpsuit. This striped version even elevates the design with cute ruffles. Simply add sneakers for a brunch look that beats the heat.

2. Gingham Dress from UPTOWNHOLIC

Another versatile staple made for Sunday brunches and picnics, this sweet and retro dress realizes the power of gingham in a flattering fit-and-flare silhouette and sweetheart neckline. Add a minimalist straw hat and wedges for a summery feel.

3. Fun Print Tee from Lemite

I love the feel of my summer tees, but sometimes they just look so bland. Hilarious without sacrificing an ounce of style, the T-rex motif on this relaxed tee says it all!

4. Skinny Strap Sundress with Back Cutout from KONGSTYLE

This sultry sundress doubles as a cool weekend go-to and wedding guest outfit you can wear multiple times. Just add neutral heels and jewelry, you get ready for parties or a night in town!

5. Floral Wrap Blouse from Chlo.D.Manon

I fell in love at first sight with this V-neck blouse, which features a wrap front that gives a refreshing spin to obligatory summer florals. The poofy sleeves and cropped length make it a natural companion to high-waist skinny jeans and heeled sandals.

6. Frayed Cropped Jeans from MAGJAY

Jeans with frayed edges are definitely an all-year staple in every casual wardrobe, and they stick around for a good reason. Thanks to the cool fray and light wash, these high-rise ankle pants essentially match with everything. Wear with a simple white T-shirt tucked in and ankle boots for a professional denim look on casual Fridays.

7. Picnic Basket Bag from migunstyle

To welcome the picnic season, how about getting a sweet flamingo-emblazoned raffia carrier? Though the basket bag has been seen around for a while, this 70s-inspired style is all the more relevant these days, especially with the recent rise of the gingham print.

8. Everyday Woven Hat from MyFiona

With the heat and humidity summer brings, a versatile sun hat is necessary. Find shade beneath this minimalist topper. Team with a casual maxi dress for daytime cool, or wear with a sweet wrap blouse and skirt for day dates.

9. Espadrille Wedges from DANI LOVE

There are plenty of reasons towering stilettos collect dust in my cabinet, one of them being the existence of heeled sturdy summer sandals like these sweet kicks. With its minimalist construction, they are made for showing off pedicures and keeping feet cool in the scorching heat.

10. Colored Sunnies from Biu Style

I’ve been a fan of mirrored lenses. The boldly colored frame of this pair just takes the look one step further. This celeb-endorsed trend couldn’t have come at a better time!
