7 Summer Wardrobe Essentials

By Aniela / July 15, 2010

Don't know what to stock your closet with this summer? No worries, because this season is bringing a slew of new, and revisited trends that you'll be sure to love. Everything from neutrals, to rompers, and everything in between so even if you don't have the latest trends, you'll be sure to find something in the back of your closet.


Neutrals have made a very strong statement on the runways this season and demanded that you not be afraid to wear them! Although neutrals can sometimes wash out a complexion, it's important to choose the right kind of neutral for your skin color. Neutrals are also great for summer because they keep you cool and they're super fun to accessorize. If you're not a fan of neutral hued clothing in general, opt for a pair of neutral wedges or an over-sized leather bag.

Tropical Prints

There's no better time to steal the tropical look than in this tropical, blistering heat! Tropical prints add a punch of color and, when paired with crisp white hues or neutrals, can look very sexy. Pick up a tropical print frock or full skirt and wear it with a white tank-top and an oversized belt.


I was never a fan of the military trend, but it seems as if stores worldwide have come to embrace the trend and so, why not give it a try? I picked up a cropped jean jacket in beige that has little military-inspired details such as the buttons and zippers. Throw it over a dress or wear it with a long tee and skinny jeans. You can also get military-inspired tube dresses, shorts, and even skirts. Just make sure to accessorize and keep everything else nice and simple!

Sailor Stripes – Go Nautical!

Arrrgghh matey, do ya love sailor stripes? If so, it's your sailing summer! Sailor stripes have never been so hot, and now you can get sailor striped pants, shoes, shirts, jackets, skirts, ANYTHING to channel your inner sailor girl.

Shirt Dresses

Shirt dresses are the perfect summer staple because they're super comfy, easy to wear, and you can throw them over a bathing suit. What's more is that a shirt dress can go from a lunch date to a night on the down. Just switch your flats for a pair of heels and you're good to go!

Circle Skirts

Circle skirts are hot right now and that's because they look super cute when paired with flats and a fitted tank top. Pick one up in a fun, bright color or a tropical print, and pair it with a white or neutral form-fitting tank top. To add a little height, throw on some wedges!


Love em or hate em rompers have made a huge splash this summer and that's because they're virtually fuss free! Think about it…you have an outfit all made for you in one piece. All you need to do is throw on some accessories and wear it with flats, flip-flops, sandals, wedges, or heels.
