Summer Musthaves

These fashion staples are on trend and perfect for a steamy Summer!

summermusthaves-victoriassecretSpring to Summer Staple: If the weather is chilly, throw a jean jacket over a flirty sundress, like Victoria’s Secret The Sexy Sundress in Geo Rows, $49.50, victoriassecret.com. But as temperatures rise, take it for a spin sans any layers.

summermusthaves-zaraOne size fits All: Toss all of your loot in a large over-the-shoulder tote, like Zara Suede Shopper Bag, $49.90, zara.com. Impromptu trip to the beach? Yep, your towel can fit!

SummerMusthaves-AEA white bustier crop top, like the American Eagle Crop Sweetheart Corset, $19.99, ae.com, looks casual-chic when paired with colorful bottoms, such as a shorts, maxi skirt or bright pants.

summermusthaves-lambandflagLovely Lilac: On a chilly night, throw on a pair of pastel jeans. These lavender skinnies (Lamb and Flag Skinny Ankle Zip Jean, $68, lambandflag.com) are flattering, thanks to their cut and subdued color.

TropicalFlowerDressA Floral Affair: A floral-print, form-fitting dress can be worn to your best friend’s destination wedding or to work—just throw a classic black blazer over it to make it more office-appropriate. You will love this Blessing-Co tropical print dress $20.

SummerMusthaves-ninewestPetal Pushers: Floral wedges, like Nine West LetItGo, $89, ninewest.com, add a pop of color—and pizzazz—to a white sundress. They can also be paired with the crop top bustier and your fave pantss.

summermusthaves-asosJailbird Rock: Mix up your style a bit and spring for a striped maxi, like Cheap Monday Monochrome Maxi Dress, $72.72, asos.com.
SummerMusthaves-nastygal
Flower Power: Cool-girl cutoff shorts should be one of your staples this season. Choose between a solid-colored or patterned pair, but I think these floral Romance CutOff Shorts by Nastygal, $75, nastygal.com, are pretty sweet.
SummerMusthaves-MossimoTotally Tribal: Swap out your regular purse for a cross-body Ikat-printed one on the weekends. This Mossimo Supply Co.
