Go-To Style Staples For Everyone’s Summer Wardrobe

Before making a clothing purchase, it’s always wise to imagine at least a few different ways to make it work in your wardrobe. Having a few go-to style staples will also help you get dressed more quickly — after all, how many times are we in a rush with “nothing to wear”? So let’s review some versatile pieces that you can mix and match all summer long. You may already have most of them in your closet!

These seven pieces can be turned into at least 12 summer ensembles — do you already have anything similar?

  1. Karen Kane Tie-Front Lantern Top ($98): This flattering knotted top can be worn layered or worn alone for any season. 
  2. J.Crew Slim Perfect Striped T-Shirt ($36.50): Pair this timeless pattern with skirts, your favorite denim or casual shorts! 
  3. J.Crew Everyday Chambray Shirt ($78): Chambray looks great with everything! Try this versatile piece with shorts, other denim and skirts. 
  4. AFRM Rocco Plissé Pleat High Waist Maxi Skirt ($108): Equal parts trendy and classic, this colorful maxi skirt can be worn with another pattern or with a basic top. 
  5. Dokotoo Drawstring Shorts ($9.99+): Wear these comfortable shorts to run errands or dress them up for coffee with girlfriends! 
  6. Everlane Stretch High-Rise Skinny Jean ($68): White denim can instantly elevate any look. This fan favorite from Everlane is no exception — it hugs curves and provides just the right amount of stretch. 
  7. GRECERELLE Black Maxi Dress ($18.99+): Wear this dress on a hot summer day or layer it with different tops. It even has pockets!
