With summer officially in full swing, it's time for a closet audit and to determine where the holes and gaps are in your wardrobe! It always takes a few weeks of styling for a new season for you to figure out what key pieces you're constantly reaching for yet don't have. And if you're anything like us, then you make a note on your mental shopping list but never see it through because hey, life goes on and then before you know it in a blink of an eye, the seasons begin to change and you think "next year I'll get it." So take this as your sign from the fashion heavens to not wait! Below are five new closet summer staples that will surely fill and complement your wardrobe!
Oh my goodness, you'll be walking on sunshine up in the clouds when you put on these ultra comfy, and oh so cute, pillow slide sandals! Pillow slides are all the rage right now and we can definitely understand and see why. As busy women on-the-go, we're constantly running from place to place and having a comfortable shoe to do all the things in is a must-have. We are big fans of this lime green/yellow hue and it is sure to accentuate your tan and make that sun-kissed skin glow just a little bit brighter!
Forgive us if we sound like a broken record, but we'll say it time and time again that owning a bright white tennis shoe is a wardrobe necessity no matter what season or time of year, but especially during the warm summer months. Why a white sneaker you may ask? Well it literally goes with any outfit. From a casual cotton summer dress to shorts and a cute tank to athleisure and athletic wear; white tennis shoes will forever be your closet best friend. The black star and studded detail on this pair is very on trend and adds a little edge and detail but doesn't take away from the versatility of the shoe!
When you need a pair of shorts but your classic cut-offs just won't do for the occasion, having a "dressier" short option is important! Summer style is all about cool and casual and that extends far beyond jean shorts and a white tank. Elevate your short game with these high waisted green and gray checkered shorts! The waistline is super flattering and the length provides excellent booty coverage while still highlighting your gorgeous legs. For styling ideas, we suggest keeping everything simple and let these printed shorts do all the talking. Opt for a simple white or black tank top and black or tan espadrille wedges or sandals.
Say hello to the heels for all your summer weddings, showers, and every celebration in between! These studded heels make for the perfect complement to any dress of your choosing. The soft white color is endlessly versatile and is just the right balance of cool girl edge while still being subtle and simple. We love the back zipper rather than having to fuss with a bunch of buckles and the ankle height provides extra support for all the moves you'll be busting out on the dance floor! The price-point is extremely budget friendly compared to their designer inspiration.
Meet the jeans of your dreams! These classic pull on skinny jeans from Liverpool are sure to become your instant new best friend. The stretch allows for all day wear while keeping its shape and the high rise elastic waist band will keep you tucked in and slim all day long. The medium wash is the perfect color that will go with every tank or top in your closet and the tasteful destruction above the knee is versatile and fun!
