It’s hard to shop for Spring because Summer is usually just around the corner – so I always try to think about key pieces that work for a Spring and Summer wardrobe. As it gets warmer, it can get harder and harder to figure out what to wear. When it gets hot in the spring and summer, all we want to do is throw off layers. But we still want to wear great outfits. A spring and summer wardrobe requires some specific go-to pieces, here are my top 10.

Statement Sunglasses

Everybody needs a favorite pair of sunglasses. And why not go all out on a pair that brings a little bit of you to every look you wear all spring and summer long? Some prefer sunglasses that make a statement in size, some prefer ones that make a statement in stylish frames, and some (like me!) prefer to make a statement with reflective lenses. Whatever feels you, you should invest in, and you’ll wear them for months on end.

 

Rompers

While mini-dresses are a spring and summer wardrobe favorite, you have to admit that they just weren’t made for every vacation. That’s why the glorious romper was invented: to be as cute as a mini dress, without all the, umm, flashing. A romper is perfect for a day out, especially if a picnic. Basically, if sitting and standing on the ground is involved, a romper is right for you.

Maxi Dress

Maxi dresses are amazing and are definitely essential for the Spring and Summer wardrobe. They’re breathable, but they can keep your legs cool in the office or on a breezy night. For a more relaxed feel, maxi dresses are a summer must-have. You can style them so easily too: a simple change in accessories can transform a maxi dress from day to night.

Wrap Sandals

Summer involves a lot of basics. And if you’re having one of those days where you just want to throw on a basic dress and pretend like it’s not 95 degrees out, wrap sandals will add some effortless interest to your whole look.

Weekender Bag

If you love warm weather as much as I do, you’re always on an adventure in the spring and summer. A weekender bag is a must have if you’re on the go. Great for travel, whether it’s a day trip or for the weekend. Since summer clothes are little smaller, you can totally pack in everything you need for a little getaway!

 

Denim Cutoffs

When worn right (they can so easily go Daisy Duke), denim cutoffs are one of my go tos for my summer wardrobe. They go with a basic tee or tank, and you can add some edginess with booties or some casual chicness with a pair of strappy sandals.

 

Denim Jean Jacket

Denim jean jackets are officially back. And because they’re so light, they’re the ideal spring and summer layer. They go with so many items in your wardrobe, even denim! They’re also super casual, so you can tone down an elevated look for day with a denim jacket. They pair well with dresses, pants =, skirts—basically anything. They’re truly the jeans of jackets!

 

Lace/Eyelet Top

Lace and eyelet scream spring and summer louder than anything. Every girl must have a go-to lace/eyelet top. You can easily pair the top with denim cut-offs or a mini skirt.

 Gold Jewelry

Gold jewelry (like a ring and a choker) is so great for summer. I love the way gold accessories pair with florals and summer colors. But gold also elevates any look: a simple gold necklace, bracelet, or earrings can add so much more excitement to a casual summer out, like a black mini dress or maxi.

Ruffle Bikini/One Piece

If you’ve been paying attention to fashion at all over the past few months, you know that ruffles are so hot right now. Why not add the season’s hottest trend to your swimwear? You can find ruffles on bikinis or one pieces  (don’t overlook these as some with ruffles can be even sexier than a bikini) —whatever type of suit you wear if it has ruffles, it will stand out in style.
