Summer is usually the season when we wear the least amount of clothes, so every item counts. It also helps to have pieces that are versatile and can be used in various ways. Get these basics right and you can accessorize to your heart’s desire.
Breathable and light, linen is the best material to wear during hot months. It also doesn’t really need to be ironed, meaning you can wash and wear it pretty easily. Take your pick of colors, but we suggest white or beige for summer.
Oversized is in. The poplin shirt is a staple that can be worn buttoned up with shorts or jeans or open over a tank top. The stiffer fabric offers structure, with a vertical stripe or crisp white looking most chic.
Forget the complicated heels. Summer is the time for simplicity. Opt for sandals that have one or two straps that can be thrown on or off at the beach.
The tote is iconic. Big enough to put in everything from your laptop to a change of clothes, it is the type of bag that just keeps on giving. Make sure it’s straw if you want to truly embrace summer.
