The summer is finally here! Here are some things I couldn’t live without for the summertime:
1. Basic Tee – I love the simplicity of a basic white (or any other color) tee. It matches with anything and it can be dressed up or down. My closet is full of basic tees and tanks all year round and I get A LOT of use out of them. (Pictured above: American Apparel)
2. Denim Cutoffs – Denim cutoffs are a necessity for summer. They are great for hot weather, match with anything, and come in a variety of styles and colors. (Pictured above: Urban Outfitters, similar here and here)*
3. Sunglasses – I think this one’s pretty obvious for summer. Sunglasses come in such a wide variety and are a great way to show off your own personal style. (Pictured above: Oakley)
4. Stacked Accessories – When you’re wearing an outfit as simple as a basic tee and denim cutoffs it’s always a great idea to add a little something extra. A great way to do this is by stacking some jewelry. You can dress the outfit up by adding a statement necklace, pile on the bracelets and necklaces for a more boho look, or just keep it simple with the addition of a few pieces here and there. (Pictured above: Bracelets – Free People, Rings – various boutiques)
*Instead of buying an overpriced pair of denim shorts from Urban/Free People/etc try finding a pair of jeans at a thrift shop or Goodwill and cut them up yourself. They are way cheaper and you can customize them to the fit and style you like.
