With summer-like heat in full swing, so are the days of lounging by the pool, backyard BBQs and skin-baring, warm weather fashion.
From bathing suits and floppy hats to wedges and seasonal cosmetics, we keep all of our sunny-season favs close by in order to keep cool in the sweltering temps. Do you?
Well, if that question has your mind scurrying, no worries. We’ve put together a little summer ‘it’ list, comprised of all the things you’ll need to have a fashionably fierce summer!
Take a peek!
A Bathing Suit: Certainly one of summer’s most important essentials, a trendy bathing suit is the one thing we wish we could live in all season long -unfortunately, society doesn’t approve. Be sure to nab one that you feel comfortable in! From monokinis to string bikinis, there are a slew of styles available, meaning you’re sure to find one that flatters your bod and satisfies your fashion senses!
A Flowy Cover-Up: Available in a variety of different cuts, styles and designs, swimsuit cover-ups are proving to be more of a fashion statement these days than a practical cover-all. Get one that’s easy to throw on for quick trips to eatery on the dock, yet easy to loose when you’re ready to get your hair wet!
A Floppy Hat: Why? Well…why not?! They’re cute, trendy and really great to have around to shade your precious face from the harsh sun. It’s one of the season’s hottest accessories – you don’t want to be caught without one!
A Flirty Maxi Dress: Clothing wise, a maxi dress is one of the greatest investments you’ll make all summer. It’s the one piece that can take you from drab to fab in a matter of moments! It’s effortless, low-maintenance yet still looks like a million bucks!
High-Waisted Cutoffs: Who wears short shorts? We do! We love the vintage-y look of distressed cutoffs. Their grungy-chic disposition makes them our go-to bottom of the season. We love to pair them with a loose-fitting top to make for a boho-fab look!
A Trendy Floral Top: Surely one of the hottest prints of the season, floral printed apparel encompasses all things flirty, feminine and classy. It too carries with it a very vintage-like feel, which if you haven’t noticed by now, we’re obsessed with! This particular top would look great with a pair of cutoffs or with some white skinny jeans and a tailored blazer.
Strappy Sandals: Truly a summer basic, a neutral colored sandal will do you good all season long. It’s quite possible one of the most versatile styles of footwear available and one that we simply cannot do without. They are available in every price range, but if you’re going to splurge on something, this is a fabulous shoe staple to do it with – trust us, you’ll get your use out of them!
A Pair of Wedges: Summer’s sexiest footwear, a chunky wedge is the perfect shoe to don for the gal looking to pump up the volume on an otherwise simple ensemble. From strappy to more sleek styles, this type of footwear is also worth the investment, since it can be worn on a number of different occasions, no matter how formal or casual it may be.
Striking Nail Polish: We are obsessed with nail polish! Especially since there are so many fun colors to sport now, too! This summer, we don’t have one favorite nail shade, not two, but three colors we’re sticking to this season – neons, metallic and pastels!
Neutral Makeup: This season, it’s all about the neutral, minimalistic look; think smooth palettes, crisp lines and fresh tones. Burberry Beauty just released it’s new cosmetic line full of all the right cosmetics to help you achieve this look!
The Twisted Topknot: This is one hot hairstyle we’re going to wear all season long! Quick, easy, heat-free styling is surely something we can’t get enough of. Celebs can be seen rocking this look on the red carpets; further solidifying it’s A-list hairstyle status!
A Chunky Neon Necklace: This hue is hot for summer, as are chunky necklaces – so why not combine the two?! Pair this piece with a white T and a pair of cutoffs for a sleek summertime look! This accessory can also be worn with other outfits, making each one seem just like new!
Hand & Body Chains: Both are huge trends this summer and add a nice twist to more traditional jewelry. Whether you prefer more dainty styles or chunkier versions, there are a ton of designs available for you to choose from! We also love the look of a fine body chain paired with a bathing suit – hello boho-bathing beauty!
