Summer Essentials That Will Never Go Out of Style

Today I’m sharing some of my summer essentials. Trends are always changing, but it’s easy to incorporate them into your wardrobe if you have classic and timeless go-to pieces. These summer essentials are closet must-haves that will stick around year after year and never look dated. And they’ll help you pull those outfits together when you want to incorporate the latest seasonal trend!

Summer Wardrobe Essentials

White Tee

Everyone needs a good white tee! They’re a piece you can wear with anything and dress up with a scarf or statement necklace. I’m a huge fan of J.Crew tees, and this one has puff sleeves that add interest.

White Jeans

If you don’t want to give up wearing jeans but want a fresh look, swap out dark denim for a white pair. Side note, I probably wear my white jeans more in the fall and winter months. Check out 8 Ways to Wear White Jeans Year Round.

Denim Shorts

Denim shorts are a summer staple I cannot live without. They basically go with any type of top and are easy to style. Mid-length and Bermuda shorts are universally flattering and give you that breezy summer vibe.

Maxi Dress

Throw on a maxi dress, and you always have a chic look. Maxi dresses are versatile and look good on everyone. Dress them up with a blazer for work or dress them down with a baseball cap and slides.

Denim Jacket

A denim jacket is a timeless layering piece that you can wear season after season. You’ll find denim jackets in all washes, but I think a medium wash is the most versatile.

White Sneakers

A pair of fresh white sneakers are not only a comfortable shoe alternative, but they also look great with virtually everything from shorts and jeans to skirts and dresses!

Tee-Shirt Dress

You can’t beat one and done dressing with a tee-shirt dress. A tee-shirt dress is effortless and so easy to dress up or down. Adding layers, like a white or chambray button-down, completely changes the look and makes it easy to transition into fall.

Neutral Sandals

A pair of neutral sandals are a summer essential and will never go out of style. My favorite pair are espadrille wedges. They’re not only comfortable to walk in, but they elongate your legs. I’ve had this pair for years, and they keep coming back season after season.
